    Laurel Mtn/7 Springs tire reccomendation

    Looking to replace my Nokian NBT 2.3 because it slips off the rocks too easily for a front tire.

    What do the Laurel Mountain regulars like on the rocks around here? I'd like to stick in the 2.3-2.35 range. I'm keeping the NBT 2.3 rear since it works well so far.

    Kendas

    I ride in the LH all the time and have gone with Kenda Blue grooves up front and Nevegals in the rear. They work very well.

    I was going to second the Nevegals. I haven't ridden them personally but alot of people out here love them.

    Does Laurel Mountain offer lift service to take you and your bike to the top of the mountain? Is there a downhill course or just trails going down the mountain?

    the laurel mountain ski resort is shut down and has been closed for about 2 years. you can still ride the slopes but you'll have to ride back up on your own. Most of the time when you hear people referring to Laurel Mountain they are talking about Laurel Mountain State Park which has some really good cross country trails that go through the woods.

    Thanks for the info guys. I can get a Blue Groove in dual compound and 2.35. I'll pick one up and try it.

    Evader: Like Invicta said, it's not downhilling on the slopes themselves, it's the miles of top notch ST in the State Park area. I've ridden most everything up here in the mountains, 7 Springs, Roaring Run, Hidden Valley, Ohiopyle, Laurel, Quebec Run and Laurel (IMHO) is at the top of the list for best single track with plenty of fun stuff to play around on.

    I have been riding up there for years (XC) and have used nothing but a knock off slick (rear). It's not too bad, even when wet, because it is so flat. I'll agree that there is some of the best single track riding up at Laurel Mnt.
