    Phil, I don't have an answer but I'll be in Erie this weekend camping and If my wounds are feeling better I may be up for some riding if you're up there. I've actually met you before skiing at Jay a few years ago, I post under a different name on a few skiing sites.

    what are you looking for in a trail? easy xc, all day get lost kind of trail +5 hours (with optional brutality), or 14 miles of constant brutal rock gardens?

    Looking towards Vultures Knob and Findley maybe Bear Creek. Any thoughts on these? looking for more XC type trails, rollers, singletrack not too too difficult.

    so you have these options

    Moraine SP - most technical trail in the area, possible the country. Rocks of all shapes and size mixed with some REALLY fun non rocky singletrack as well, notthat rocks arent fun .

    Kennerdell - not as technical as Moraine still fun in it own right lots of different types of trails from smoothish single track, to to steepish singletrack, to rocky single track.

    Westbranch SP - in ohio short fun loop


    other if your driving back to philly monday raystown lake is kinda of along the way, as well as all the great pittsburgh area and laurel Highland trails.

    In Ohio, if you're going as far as Vulture's Knob (which is a great trail), you may want to go the extra distance down to Mohican State Park, in Loudenville. It is consistently viewed as the best trail in the state. If you don't want to go that far, I agree with Bushwacker and recommend West Branch. It just opened for the season after a nice long, wet delay...

    All Ohio trails/descriptions can be found here:
