In 2010, Launch Bike Park was opened for lift accessed downhill and freeride mountain biking. It currently boasts 11 skillfully crafted trails which challenge riders of all levels. The trails feature roots, rocks, rock drops, bridges, berms, bridge drops, jumps, gaps, and a brand new dedicated jump line. At the base, riders experience a laid back, friendly atmosphere where people from all over can socialize, get tips, and swap stories. To experience all this and more, come see what Launch has to offer so close to home.
Launch Bike Park is located at the Spring Mountain Ski Area, in beautiful Spring Mount, Pennsylvania. It is less than an hour drive north from the city of Philadelphia and has established itself as the Philadelphia area’s year-round destination for outdoor fun and adventure. Spring Mountain also offers adventure activities including zip line canopy tours, a rock climbing tower, and the Perkiomen Trail. This 19 mile multi-use trail runs right past Spring Mountain for those who wish to partake in a scenic and relaxing bike ride. Plus there are cross country trails on Spring Mountain, so bring the whole family. There is riding for everyone! To learn more about Spring Mountain visit www.springmountainadventures.com.
There is plenty to do in the area for the non-riders in your crew. The Philadelphia Premium Outlets are located about 20 minutes away http://www.premiumoutlets.com. Or let your better half get pampered at the Prodigo Day Spa www.prodigodayspa.com while you hit the trails. Prodigo is located 5 minutes from Spring Mountain.
The Woodside Lodge is located on the back side of Spring Mountain. It was built in the early 1920s and is the last standing inn among several that catered to the period when travelers came by train to Schwenksville to escape Philadelphia ‘s summer heat. The cool winds and the beaches then located along the Perkiomen Creek made Spring Mountain the place to be for the first half of the twentieth century. We have restored the Woodside Lodge to the wonderful meeting place that so many travelers and locals remember. Book your overnight stay in one of the 7 beautiful two-room suites or make reservations for dinner and drinks at the Lodge. Every Wednesday night is Half Price Burger Night from 4-9:00 (Burger and Fries for $4.50!) and the daily Happy Hour prices can’t be beat. Visit www.springmountainadventures.com to check out the menu, rooms and pictures. Launch riders who purchase the 2 Day Lift Pass can get a discounted room rate. Call 484-552-8457 to make reservations.
