    Ridgway, St. Mary's, Elk Co

    Any good riding around there? My favorite places to ride so far in PA is Rothrock and Michaux. Thanks.

    WOW!

    not since the Ridgeway mt bike race days, and I'm not sure if you can still ride the race course.

    But look into Potter County plenty there to check out

    And check these guys out

    I don't know what's out there, but we've got singletrack in Warren County....Morrison, Hearts Content/Tanbark, Coal Bed, Hatch Run. Jake's rocks will be done and opened in about a month as well....and that's purpose built singletrack.

    Dave Love had plenty of singletrack to ride back when he ran the show...
    ...off the Little toby creek R/T there is the Garnocci quarry and singletrack

    I forget what Dave called the trail but it was the path into the quarry and there was a loop around the back all in all about 10 miles of cool s/t

    Are these trails part of one trail system and how far are they from Ridgway?

    Nope, all different. Morrison is actually in McKean Co just east of the Warren/McKean line on SR 59. It's rugged trail stuff....rocks, steep, logs....it's not a faint of heart kind of ride. Hearts Content/Tanbark are between Warren and Tidioute. That's a mix of single-track and more open old rail bed stuff, but it's worn in to basically all single-track. Coal Bed is in Scandia. It's got a little bit of everything but it's mainly atc double track with a section of single-track. Hatch is basicallyl North Warren....just outside of town. It's not a long ride and not worth the trip on it's own, but it's all single-track save for a long, steep climb on a forest road and then an old skid road. Jake's is all purpose built MTB single-track under construction as we speak.

    Pretty much all of them are going to be an hour +/- from Ridgeway. I realize that's a bit of a shot but it's options that aren't God awful far.

    Brush Hollow is a cross-country ski area open to bikes. It's on 948 between Sackett and Ridgeway. It's not single-track though. There's always the ATV trails on the ANF as well....we ride Rocky Gap here quite often, but I'd avoid that during the week. I don't recall the trail heads nearest you, but all of the ANF ATV stuff is open to bikes.
