    Yes! definitely bring your bike.
    Plenty of places within driving distance from where you'll be staying.
    What type of riding are you looking for (i.e. DH, XC etc.) ?

    We have tons of great riding, but I'm not sure where Pipersville is. Can you elaborate? I'm assuming Eastern PA which is why I've never heard of it.

    I'm not too familiar with that area but I did a search
    and there's the Nockamixon State park near Ottsville which is about 5 miles
    from where you'll be.

    The trail info states, " Varying degrees, it is as hard as you want it to be.
    Many logs to jump, great uphills and downhills and some little ravines to jump.
    The singletrack trail length is 6 miles for all skill levels."

    There's also the Jim Thorpe area which is one of the better places in the state to ride.
    It's about 60 miles away from where you're going. You may not want to go that far???

    I think that might be the Ralph Stover State Park.
    If it is, I didn't see anything about bike trails.
    Only a 1 mile hiking trail.

    Go to Mapquest and put in Pipersville and you'll be able to see all the parks (green areas)
    around where you'll be staying.

    Wherever you go "Ride safe!"
