Ride Description:

Opossum Lake loop

On Thursday November 9 the East Shore Flex ride will offer another road trip, leaving out of Carlisle for a loop around Opossum Lake. 

Departure time is 1:00 p.m. from the West Pennsboro Township Park in Plainfield, just west of Carlisle.  Street address of the park is 30 Park Road, West Pennsboro Township, PA 17015

Directions to the park from the Harrisburg area:

  • Interstate 81 South across the river towards Carlisle
  • Exit 44 for Route 465 North.  Turn right at the end of the ramp onto Route 465 North.
  • Left at PA 641 West
  • Right onto Park Rd
  • Go to the very end of Park Rd and bear right into the parking lot for West Pennsboro Township Park

Our route will be approximately 28 miles and about 1300 ft of elevation climb.  It will mirror the Opossum Lake loop used for the 3 Creek Century, only we will be doing the loop in the opposite (clockwise) direction so that we get to Opossum Lake later in the ride.  Pace will be approximately 13 mph.
