Section from Lykens Road to Shale Run has rocky sections, I would say Blue Trail, not Green.

Classic Pennsylvania riding, but not extremely rocky. If ridden west to east it’s a blast with a mostly downhill gradient. A must ride if you’re in this area!!

Very rocky with relatively little grade and few big features but definitely an endurance challenge. Basically the opposite of 'flow.'
