    If anyone needs the help of a prototype/custom machinist let me know.

    I would say you should check out Frick Park and Boyce Park next, I usually ride North Park, Boyce Park and Frick. I know there are more places but I am not familiar with them.

    Maybe this map will give you a better overview.

    I would recommend Boyce Park as well. I rode it yesterday, the trails were in pretty good condition.
    Safe Riding

    If you're up for heading to Butler county, check out Moraine State Park, definitely falls under the AM category.

    Bavington is in Washington County - not AM riding, but definitely worth checking out.

    And definitely second Frick. Boyce isn't too bad, either.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    Rowdy riding here -- in and around Pittsburgh -- but no real AM stuff, as in "ride up for a few miles, bomb down for half that." It's all pretty much rugged XC, with no huge climbs or descents. That goes for Moraine, too; very physical and fun, but no bunches of descending, which is what most people want when they say "AM."

    North Park does have their little (but fun) "DH" features course, called "Dr. J" or something, and DJ hits.

    Frick's Iron G(r)ate is maybe the most AM-ish stuff around, but it's been neglected recently...
    To make up for that, there's the extended Crater trail over by the slags. Real good folks have been working there (while I've been slacking) to make it awesome --
    Strava Segment | FULL CRATER WITH LOOP
    Call it Crater-Vertigo-Humpular-One Arm

    There's always Michaux, and Rothrock... And there's always spring...
