    western pa trail suggestions

    heading to mt. morris from eastern PA and was just checking if anyone wants to share some trail recommendations for south western PA/MD/WV. initial thought of route is something like 78w-81s-70w-68w-79n, but this can change depending on options of places to ride. not looking for any rail trails but it would be nice if it wasn’t killer up-hills either. just every-day fun intermediate singletrack. if there’s a map or easy to follow trails that would be great; just point me in a direction and I can search.

    Big bear is great down there. Up around the Pittsburgh area, North Park, Bavington, and Frick all offer a lot of great riding.

    Moraine is actually north of Pittsburgh, so would be a bit of a drive from Mt. Morris.

    Bavington (Hillman St. Park) is southwest of Pittsburgh, but still a ways north of MM. Nice trails though.

    East of MM, right at the state line, is Quebec Run, part of Forbes State Forest. Beautiful trails, but more difficult.

    Northwest of MM a little ways is Tomlinson Run S.P. near New Cumberland, WV. Also nice trails there.

    Good luck.

    Near to Mt. Morris is coopers' rock, which you'll basically be driving right past. But that's a climbing sufferfest. You might be better off changing your route to head to laurel highlands en route. Aside from that, all the good stuff is going to be an hour+ north of mt. morris.

    You might want to check in with the WV guys.

    I would suggest altering said route and taking 80 across thus providing you with a reason to swing by Rothrock and Raystown.
