Mountain Biking Coal Cracker

****   Add a review
#86 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#3,301 in the world

Coal Cracker aka Mount Pisgah is an advanced level trail in a very remote setting of an old coal strip mine. There is a myriad of cross trails so a guide would be recommended. A blast with tons of rocks and roots and some very *dangerous* cliffs to ride along. 95% singletrack

    I've been doing this ride for 5 years now and it never gets boring. Def need a guide if you are new to the area, nothing marked. Def not 95% single track (unless i'm missing something). More technical/washed out fire road then single track, but when it is single its frikin awesome. Take a dip in the one quarry pool...ice cold! Careful this is all PRIVATE PROPERTY and stay on the trail, nasty cliffs all over.
