    Central/western PA 30-60 mile ride gpx

    I'm looking to travel from mass and ride Pennsylvania the last two weeks of October. I'm spending plenty of time on trail forks and looking at folks rides on strava to build my own routes but if anyone has a solid 40 or more mile ride they'd share with me that'd be awesome.
    Thanks

    Look at trails in Rothrock or Bald Eagle State Forests. Both have vast trail networks that can easily fulfill a 40 mile ride. Are you looking for all singletrack or mix? These state forests have great gravel roads with double track, and singletrack segments spread throughout. A typical ride would be comprised of linking up the trails via the gravel and double track. Dependent on how much % of what surface you want will dictate your route. Look at the old Transylvania Epic stage race routes for ideas. Purple Lizard maps are the unofficial maps of these forests. Donít enter without one. Other big trail networks that could net close to 40 miles are Rattling Creek and Allegrippis.

    thanks for the response, i'll check in on all of that.

    I know that there will always need to be connections for rides like this but single track > gravel > paved.

    I'm starting to get a few things mapped out, over say 10 days of riding id like to get at least 2 days of 10+ hours with a handful of 4-6 hour rides and a rest day at like day 7. And drive home exhausted feeling like I crushed PA which has been on my ride list for AGES.

    Hit up...

    ...Trailforks or MTBproject, you can put together some really cool stuff, with a mix of all surfaces. Tussey mountain has some new stuff, that's all I will say the rest is up to you to find it!
