    Need directions to Raccoon Mtn

    Gonna give Raccoon a whirl tomorrow and need directions to get there from the boro, and where to park. I've read about vehicle break ins at some of the parking lots. Thanks

    I was just there a few weeks ago, I'm horrible with directions so I won't try that...but I would park at the visitors center. There are people working there all day, I would imagine that would cut down on peoples attempts to break-in.

    Sounds like a good idea. Can anyone help me find the visitor's center and trailhead from there?

    "Mountain biking is about adventure and the rediscovery of your childhood freedom. It removes you from the daily grind and puts you in an environment with endless possibilities - wildlife, epic views, a personal epiphany about what really matters, and tasting your endorphins after a long, hard climb. The reward is looking back at obstacles, that are now behind you, and feeling like anything's possible." - Gary Klein

    I rode there today, (4/4/2010), and it is in perfect shape. I saw all of it two times plus a little more. It was a blast and there were a lot of trail users.
