Moon Lake logging on WNEP

WNEP news recently featured a story about the logging at Moon Lake Park, including some interviews with Anthracite Mountain Pedalers members.

Please sign up for our Newsletter (on the right hand side of the page) or like our Facebook page to receive information about trail work days. You can help support mountain biking in Luzerne, Lackawanna, and Wyoming counties by joining the International Mountain Bicycling Association. Memberships will directly benefit our local IMBA chapter, and help support projects like the reconstruction of Moon Lake Park trails.
