    Jim Thorpe trip pics

    both Tammy and I had a wicked time riding some of the trails in the area... just not enough time or knowledge of the area to hit more of them

    here are a few money shots of that area









    on top of the south ridge


    this one was fun







    riding some rock garden





    JT... we'll be back next season

    Great shots,what are the names of the trails you did and how would you rate them. There's been alot of talk on here that most trails are closed around J.T.

    Nice pics. They look familiar: Jim Thorpe Ride Pics

    Your post freaked me out. My wifes name is Tammy. I was like, WTF when did I make this post. We weren't in JT this weekend.

    Oh, you may want to consider shrinking the size of your pics. They are rather large. I had trouble downloading them with a high speed connection. People with dial-up will need to be patient.

    I believe that's the switchback trail in the pics. On a technical rating it's maybe a 2. Last time I was there I saw a grandmother and a 10yro on a BMX. Unless you finish it with the wagon road back down into JT, then it's 8-9. It's a hella rocky steep downhill and almost mandatory FS. On a visual rating it's probably a 8-9. There are some great lookouts.

    There's been alot of talk on here that most trails are closed around J.T.
    Most of the trails are not closed. Only the ones located on the Broad Mountain in the state game lands. The broad mountain loop (double track fire road) is open, but all the single track (some of the best riding there) is closed. There is still plenty of good riding though.

    I'll work on the size of the pics tomorrow.. sorry

    as for the names of trails.. I'm cluless.. a guy at BlueMountain shop told me where to go and which trails cut off where....

    As far as a technical trail rating... I haven't seen anything above 5 in that area .. yea, the downhill section was fun on a hardtail, but I guess I need a guide to show me the good stuff

    Afterall I like the area a lot... it felt good to take a nice, long epic ride with breathtaking views and leave the big bike behind
