#18 of 295 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#1,099 in the world

Trail 1 is the main multiple use loop around the property. It is a 5.1 mile loop of mostly single track, with a lot of twists and turns, also a good amount of ascends and descents. There are multiple technical rocky areas threw out the trail;Most of which are marked with signs. Along the way you will encounter some bridges,views, and a tree ride here and there. There are also multiple short cut along the way as well.

Trail 4 and 5 provide a wider smoother option but do cut out some mileage. Trail 3 also cuts out some mileage but is a tight rocky trail. Trail 6 is a option to skip out of some switchbacks but beware it is rocky. Trail 8a,8b,and 8c are out expert trails with lots of rocks and steep descents. All of our trails are intermediate/expert,non directional,multi-use trails.So be alert and polite to others.For a quick beverage or a bit to eat, be sure to stop in to Trails End cafe or the Grille.Located in our hotel.
