    Mingo Park south of Pittsburgh

    I do most of my riding up in the mountains around uniontown and down into WV. In the winter, my local trails will have a good bit of snow while we have none here in town. I have been hitting up whites park in Morgantown to get my singletrack fix in. I was curious about Mingo park. I have heard mixed reviews, but none from anyone who has ridden it recently.

    Anyone ride there recently?

    I tried it out this summer, very hard to find the trails, no real markers or anything like that. You would be better off driving a little farther up to south park.

    Some mtbr user "staz" used to go there a lot, so you could pm him...

    Off topic: If you're getting near Pittsburgh, may as well hit Frick, Boyce, North Park. All great. Closer to you is Ohiopyle...

    A group of guys (I helped a pinch, but not enough) has expanded the trails in Frick, over by the slags -- Crater trail: Strava Segment | FULL CRATER WITH LOOP
    -- and it's some of the best singletrack in the area. And it's getting bigger.
    Definitely hit it.

    I used to ride mingo a number of years ago but the trail system isn't really that great and a little confusing to follow. I can't say that I would make it a point to drive a great distance to get there but I would ride it more often if it was convenient. South park is nice and you can ride there all year but I think bavington is probably the best riding close to the city.
