    Any suggestions for trails to ride after Dirt Fest?

    Will be at Dirt Fest from Friday through Sunday and added an extra day to the trip to go to Bryce on Monday. The only problem is, Bryce is closed. Does anyone have any suggestions for other trails to ride within 2-3 hours of the Raystown Lake area?

    Go ride the two IMBA EPIC's in Rothrock state forest. Coopers gap epic is only 30 minutes away start at greenwood furnace state park. Or ride the Rothrock trailmix epic on the other side about 45 minutes away from raystown.

    Go to one of the cool shops in State College, get a Purple Lizard map and some advice, and go hit some Rothrock Trails.

    Will be VERY different from the Raystown trails.

    Or, go further east and hit the Rattling Creek trails near Lykens, PA.

    Or, get trail advice or a ride leader and go to Michaux State Forest either from Pine Grove Furnace SP or Caledonia SP. A good map can be had at the park office in Pine Grove (topo, with trials, plasticized) but it doesn't really call out cycling routes. There's "ridiculous" amounts of trail to ride in Michaux.

    There are more options out there, but that's what comes to mind.

    I'm sure if you ask around at dirtfest, there will be a handful of people that are going to Rothrock after the craziness is over.

    Rothrock is close by and full of awesome trails. the Coopers Gap area is just amazing. Must hit trails are Lewistown Contingent/SassXX, Chicken Peter Trail to Beautiful Trail, and Tussey Mountain Trail. Just three of my favorites. Get a purple lizard map and a highlighter and hunt down any NMBA member, Evan from Rothrock Outfitters, or any of the Freeze Thaw guys. You'll get tons of great riding in down there.
