    No riding in the park. You could sort of string together a ride on gameland roads just north of the park entry, but these are just gravel roads. There's some ST in there as well, but seldom ridden and not easily found.

    Moon Lake's the closest option for well marked/mapped trails.

    Rickett's Glen proper, no mt biking, ton's of secret stuff all around, but you'll need a guide...LOL

    Closest thing to ride, just before Rickett's Glen SP entrance is an old dirt road on your right, it goes up the mountain and was the old way of getting cut ice off the mountain before Albert Lewis ran his railroad beyond Bean Run to Mountain Springs. When you get to the top you'll see a few hunting cabins, and you can access Mountain Springs slash dams one and two making a giant loop. It's a good climb and fun descend.

    I used to spend summers at Harvey's Lake, we knew the Kitchen's family at Mountain Springs which would be at the top of the mountain behind Lake Jean between the old railbeds, Cherry Run, Bean Run, Ricketts, Central, Jamison City, Murray, Dutch Mountain, Albert Lewis and Jenning's Brother's logging/ice roads all over the place, plenty of stuff, and yes there is singletrack.

    Actually closest trail system near there is the Sorber Mountain Trails, off Rt29 going to Noxen, little known and not ridden by many "Joe Gmiter Trails" lots of climbing really old school mt biking! Our Back Mountain Enduro Riders Moto Enduro used to go through this area back in the 1970s.
