“Launch lives!” Spring Mountain Bike Park: The closest bike park to Philly – Just Ride Ep 6

Formally “Launch Bike Park” Spring Mt continues to offer exciting features and technical gnar for those who are brave enough to attempt it.

This is the closest bike park to Philadelphia. And even though there is no longer any lift service, the 350ft climb to the top using the fire road is not too bad. If you have an eBike this would be the dream scenario.

In this episode of Just Ride, we headed to Spring Mt in Schwenksville, PA. I had not been here with my MTB in 10 years, and it did not disappoint. It was nice to see that folks were still building and maintaining what was formally “Launch”.

We focused most of the day on two black diamond trails, “A-Frame” and “Flowdacious”. Both of these trails offer plenty of tech, sprinkled with jumps and drops. Everything is built well and there is something here for intermediate to advanced level riders. So whether you are an Enduro rider looking to shred the tech, or an All Mountain warrior looking to push your limits, Spring has got it all.
