    Need info on Pittsburgh MTBing?!

    I am taking a trip to Pittsburgh to celebrate my BF's birthday and we are solely going to enjoy some Mountain Biking. Does anyone know some specifics and good info about riding in the Pittsburgh area? Or where we can find some good maps?

    The link above has maps and brief descriptions of all the action in the burgh. I am pretty new to the sport and live near Moraine St. Park. I have pretty much been riding the Moraine trail exclusively and would highly recommend checking it out. Its about an hour north of the city though. The only other notable place I've checked out was North Park and it was great as well.

    Here is a video of the Moraine Trail: http://www.spokejunkies.com/images/video/moraine.wmv

    Any of the county parks would be good to ride. I just rode at Deer Lakes Park this Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice trails up there, and I will return.

    Boyce is a real fun place to ride, there are miles and miles of awesome singletrack there. The layout of the place is kind of confusing though, all the trails look similar so its easy to lose your way and end up riding the same trail over and over.

    Depending on where in/around Pittsburgh you will be, Bradys Run Park and Bavington are great places to ride also.
