The Lebanon area has some of the best riding in Eastern Pennsylvania. The trails are extremely challenging and are by far some of the best mountain biking trails in the state. If you're riding in the Lebanon area, you're sure to have a wonderful time. Your ride starts at the State Game Lands No. 156 parking area, 1.5 miles from US 322. The ride follows a wide dirt road for a short distance and then goes right along Kettle Run. The trail along Kettle Run is tight, rocky, and technical. This is a difficult patch and can easily be avoided by walking. The next part of the ride climbs up a wide dirt road, passing several State Game Lands food plots as it leads you up to the top of a ridge and to the radio towers. Just past the towers the trail drops steeply down a tight singletrack trail back to Kettle Run. Terrain: Rocky single and doubletrack trails and gravel roads.

A good distance ride as long as you ride more than half the trails on the mountain. The blue marked parts of the trail are confusing if you don't know the trail but offers many medium and large jumps. Dont rely on the map because the map doesn't match the trail.
