Review: Kennerdell offers a nice network of trails for various levels of stamina and technical skill.

Ridge Trail offers the largest rocks and greatest technical challenge, with the hardest being the final descent to the river.

Blunder Trail offers a steep and somewhat rocky descent to the river.

Pipeline Trail offers a long and moderate trip from the trailhead to the river, and the Rock Oak Trail is a similar alternative route. Both are a mixture of singletrack, doubletrack, and gravel.

Window Trail is the real gem, providing a nice view of the valley.

Bear Wallow Trail is often wet, and makes an easier descent than ascent.

Stripmine Trail connects to a nice set of dirt tracks at the top of the mountain.

Fisherman's Cove Trail lets you add another loop if you use the pipeline access road, but takes another steep descent to the river if you don't turn back.

Ascending from the river is arduous no matter what. Pipeline Trail is the gentlest slope with the least technical challenge, but is so long that it's very demanding on the stamina.

The River Trail provides an easy and simple trip on river level, until it becomes rocky and closed to bicycles.

Other trails, such as the Hoh-Ya-Neh and Dennison Run systems are closed to bikes.

Recommended trips:

For young kids and low confidence beginners, ride the River Trail, and try ascending Pipeline Trail a bit at a time.

For beginners with good confidence, take Pipeline down to Window, return by Rock Oak to the top junction. Then ride Stripmine out to Fisherman's Cove Trail, and follow that until it crosses back over the access road. Take the road back to the main FC trail and return to Stripmine.

For moderately experienced riders, take Ridge Trail from the upper trailhead down to the junction with Window, then ride the length of Window to Pipeline, then use Pipeline to return to the trailhead.

If you want to add a climb and descent, more power to you, just know what you're getting into.

Review: Good mix for cardio and a few technical sections. One of the more scenic trail rides.

Review: Thought I would write with an update as the last one was over a year ago. I rode this for the first time and had a great time. Nice mix of double track, single tracks, good climbs and beautiful scenery. All a good time. Trails are marked fairly well and easy to get back to the parking lot. If in western pa, Moraine park is much butter, but more technical.

Review: First an update! Only 13 miles of trail are now open to MTB and horses. Use the parking areas off Dennison Run Rd. If first Parking area is full of horse trailers!!!!!!!!!!!!!! there is another small parking area on the left just past the first.(too small for horse trailers) Map at TH and at Now for the good news, numerous and varying loops can be made, and riding everything available to MTB would take several hours and and at least 3 trips to the river. Large variety of trails from wide DT to technical ST. Notes; Lower half of Bear Wallow should be renamed Pig Wallow (avoid); Blunder Trail is mostly a rock filled gully (rideable for the very skilled); Ridge trail down to the river is a blast; and finally the must ride trail is Window Trail (just a sweet XC cruise along the cliff.) Excellent views of the river when the leaves are down. Even though the lot was full of horse trailers when I got back, I only meet 2 of them.
