    Where to ride in PA

    I usually only stay in the NE part of the state so I cannot speak to all of the riding in the state. My favorite place to ride is Moon Lake Park. There are approximately 20-25 miles of riding up there with some incredible single-track trails. Here is the link to a map

    Another fun place to ride is Frances Slocum State Park which is about a fifteen minute ride from Moon Lake Park. I don't know too many specifics about FS, but I think there are about 6 or 7 miles there. Here is a link to the page about Frances Slocum

    Have fun!!!

    I'm the kind of person you need to keep your eye on or I'll wander off into the woods and forget to come back...

    Rather than the search for ultimate gnar gnar, you might want to consider taking English classes this summer. Welcome to the PA forum.

    As far as the areas from southeast PA and into the Poconos goes, Jim Thorpe is a great area. Here is a link to a nice trail guide. It's a good place to start.

    Although you are better off getting a book and planning ahead, there is also a bike shop in Jim Thorpe called Blue Mountain Sports and Wear. As much as I don't like the shop as far as service/parts/bikes go, they have some nice trail guides for sale. Get a book, and ride till your hearts content.

    If headed to south central PA, check out Michaux. IMO some of the best riding in the area. Its just a little drive from the Gettysburg Area. Or you might want to check out Rocky Ridge or Lake Redman in York County if heading through that area
