    Yes. Tons of trails. Park by the power station on carveton road. Go up the hill on the gas line road for a bit then dump right into the woods. There are trails up and down the side of the mountain.

    There are trails in the park but are not supposed to be for biking. Rangers are on patrol in peak times and on weekends.
    Yoiu can find a map on Pa state parks web site.

    The one's in the park are for Hiking! Like Deer Trail. The trails from the Gasline are open and ridable. The Stone and Log trail is the most difficult! If you ride in from the gasline and turn right as soon as you clear the tall grass you will be on Fishermans Path.That trail will take you to green road(linear trail)
    Most of the trails myself and friends built. You can ride the Gasline all the way to Green road, but there is a new housing development in the middle of it. Skirt the HD then back on the gasline to Green Road. Hang a right on Green Road which is now paved, was dirt. Nice uphill/downhill though. At the bottom of the hill at the intersection look right for a yellow gate. Ride that trail, it was the Old road before the park was built in 1968.The road will dissappear into water, there are concrete pods you can walk, about 20 of them spaced 2 feet apart. If it's warm you can ride the water but it will be about 8 inches deep.This is the Fisherman's path from the other side. Follow it back to the gasline or ride the side trails to the right You can't go left the lake is there. Any of the trails to the right are boarderd by the gasline. You can't get lost!

    The lower trail called Fisherman's Path is WET and be careful it is tight and difficult to see around corners, beware of fisherman and kids.
    I have SP maps here at the shop, stop by for info on other trails near there also.

    Hope this helps
