Lake Redman Professional Review and Guide
"William Kain County Park’s 1,675 acres include two beautiful lakes, Lake William and Lake Redman. The lands surrounding these two reservoirs offer an array of trails and numerous ways to link together a variety of loops. The trails here are well marked. Highlights: two beautiful lakes; lakeside riding, boating, and fishing; and all the amenities of the park including boat rentals, horseshoe pits, sand volleyball courts, and picnic pavilions; camping at nearby Otter Creek and Pequea Campgrounds. Tread: the surface range from grassy woods roads to hardpacked singletrack. Wide open trails combined with some tight singletrack constitute great riding."
--Rob Ginieczki, Mountain Biking Pennsylvania (Falcon Guides).
We hike here all the time. This is a great network of trails. I don't use it for MTB but rather for hiking and walking with the dog and kids; lots of spots to stop and throw the ball in the lake for the dog, good mix of relatively "tough" verticals but plenty of easy fireroad type trails. Fairly rocky in some areas, as is typical of PA trails. Not as bad as the AT in that sense. Parking can be spotty.
For those of us nonlocal, though, the directions should be changed: It's Exit 14 now, not Exit 4.
I started out MTB’n on these trails when it was in its raw glory in the mid 90’s. I have a lot of bumps, bruises, and scars from these trails! There is a wide variety of trails, from open and smooth to closed-in goat trails that have you ducking under tree limbs. Two trails go under I83, one north, which is about 6’x6’ and 70’ long (concrete all around) that has your chest on the bars with your head up looking for the light at the other side. Going west to east, watch out for the small water hole at the end. The southern route is larger, but you have a creek to navigate through while dodging rocks on the creek bed as your eyes adjust. I have a lot of stories riding here through the years. So to whomever reads this, enjoy Redman/Williams before it gets logged out, built up and full of yuppies and horse $#;T.
