    I think the local sidewalks are the best place to mtb.

    I give positive rep all around but then I get negative rep from all the clowns.

    Wow, the first half decent thread in this forum in a coons age, at least for one post. I think I'll rescue it. I vote The Tubs in Luzerne County. I've been riding there forever and I never get sick of it. And aside from the odd fallen tree, it requires very little trail maintenance.

    I vote the same. However Brian and I (with a few helpers) keep that place so spiffy that is just doesn't SEEM like alot of maintenance is required. haha. Thanks for being one of the riders who would actually move a fallen tree rather than just bushwack around it

    Are we talking about true mtn bike specific trails,and all most exclusively used by mtn bikers,where logs and other challenging terrain is welcomed and bushwacking isn't an issue because it's mtn biking and the idea is to ride the terrain as presented to you.I've had the good fortune and opportunity to ride a good many places over the years,but to date one of the finest and most challenging mtn bike areas in Pa is the Mt Penn/Antietam trails,still one of the best kept secrets.truly built and maintained by mtn bikers with various terrain to test your skills.whatever feeds your need CC,AM or DH these trails and runs deliver!

    Not a "trail", but my favorate ride in PA(or anywhere) was the epic improvised ride that went from Stroudsburg, to Jacobsburg, and back. Over 60 miles of extremely diverse terrain(about 80% dirt) included paved road, singletrack, doubletrack, ATV trail, rail trail and bed over flat and climbing terrain.

    Roaring Run in Apollo. Nice flow and technical enough to be interesting.

    Where's the love for The Wiss? --with all this has, it has to be the best trail in Pa., and they are still improving it.

    Laurel Mountain. Rocks, roots, bears, flying porcupines. What more could you possibly want?

    My personal faves are Mt.Gretna trail #15, Mt.Penn, French Creek, in that order. Coincidentally they fall in order from most technical to least, although Mt.Penn is just about right there with Gretna.
    None of them are any good right now though with over a foot of snow on them and more to come!

    Mountain Top - from Brown St. to Slayline (old smashing plates). It has everything: one of the toughest climbs I've ever done (the fire road to the upper Earth area before Dead Deer), and the gnarliest DH sections I've ever seen in NEPA.
    Slugs love beer.

    Finius, I'm counting on contributing to Reconstruction come the spring, so you let me know if you're heading outsomewhere and can use another (somewhat) strong back, hmm-kay?

    bear could probably guess this already, but Miles of Smiles at Blue Mountain has to be my favorite. We took it at the end of our day there on our last run. Then did another last run. Then a third. Then finally a fourth last time down that trail before calling it quits. I don't think it's anywhere near miles long, but it's all fast berms and tabletops that let you go real fast and force you to hang on tight. The best part is it's still fun even if you're not any good at that kind of stuff.

    The best trail in Pa? Boy that's a tough one. How can one person judge what is the best trail in Pa? It's a very large state. It would be impossible for one person to ride them all and then make a fair judgement (of course if you're looking for volunteers put my name on the list).

    I can honestly say of all the trails I've ridden it would be tough to say what is the best one. Some I liked more than others of course, but can I say that one is head & shoulders above the rest? No.

    Pee-yay trails are like pizza, sex and beer: Even the bad ones are still pretty darn good.
