    There used to be a rider who posted on here now and again who lived in the Galeton area. Had a bunch of his own trails that he built. Seemed pretty nice as (if I remember correctly) he would offer to ride with folks to show them around.

    Can't remember his screen name though....

    Can anyone else help?

    i got nothin to help with on who that might have been. from all my experiences between bradford and wellsboro is pretty much the mt biking deadlands. there's more wilderness there than you could ever want, but so few people on two wheels.

    i'd look into wellsboro. i know there's a shop there, and the laurel classic course is well liked.

    If I know who you are talking about. (He still owns a cabin at the top of Denton however, and plans to visit between March and April.)

    Anyway, the single track may be ok but I doubt if it's getting much maintenance. Getting to the singletrack via logging roads can be utterly miserable until the roads dry out. By late April you should be safe on the logging roads. As long as the snow is gone the single track is usually good to go.

    The single track that was there was good stuff.

    Certain parts of the STS would be great to ride, but biking the STS is suppose to be illegal. Too bad as its often the bikers cleaning the trails.
