    Northern PA MTB Trails?

    Looking for moderately technical trails near Renovo/Lock Haven area. I see Tamarack Tower, and Black Forest Shay Trail. Wondering if there might be others and if anyone has ridden these? Hoping for a 1.5 - 2.5 hour ride experience.

    You will find lots to ride in that area just not well advertised yet! Your best bet is to head up tho Cherry Springs state park there is a mega trail system in that area, check with the district forest office on RT 6 near Galeton

    Sinnemahoning SP has a trails as well as you might get to see an elk or 2

    I spoke with the district forester this past summer and they are working on connecting a huge area together, for now hit up the Billy Lewis trail

    Pine Mountain is 15 minutes from Lock Haven to the East. Ole Bull state park has some riding, its probably 30-45 minutes to the north. Everything else I know of is down here in Williamsport. There is a group ride next thursday at 5:30 at the water authority in Williamsport with the local imba chapter if you are interested.

    Since it is the closest here is a link to a loop we did at Pine Mountain.

    Rothrock has almost 100 trails for maybe 180 miles of riding. It's about an hour away from Lock Haven, maybe less depending on your starting point. Renovo, longer.

    Ive ridden black forest-shay and have really enjoyed it. Last time was 2 years ago, and there were many downed trees through the middle section of the ride.
