Mountain Biking Geisinger Trails

****   Add a review
#42 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#1,634 in the world

Mostly singletrack, some double and very little 4X4. Trails range from somewhat rocky to smooth and fast. Blue trail has 3-4 switchbacks. New trails being added all the time. Somewhat technical in places. Some tight, fast downhill sections. There are trail maps on most of the trails but they are out of date and show only the marked trails. These trails are home of the "Tour De Tykes" race to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. Also, remember where you are parked in relation to the hospital... the trails come out in different places but if you can see the hospital you will know where your car is.

Getting there
From route 11 in Danville turn by Dunkin' Donuts. Go through next light and up towards Geisinger hospital. Stay on that road all the way around hospital. When coming back onto main road make a right. Take the next left that isnt to a parking lot. Approx. 1/5 miles to 4X4 road. You will see parking near there. Trailheads located there or further past to Yellow marked trail on right.

    Amazing trail system with beginner to advanced trails available. Only bad thing is parts of the trails are covered in rocks, which I personally do not like. But, other than that it is very fun.

    Great place to work on your climbing, everything starts up hill.

    It's a little rock for my taste, but they say variety is the spice of life.

    All and all, worthwhile if you're in the area ...

    Other than being steep and a cardio workout, this trail system offers little interest. Is very simple but rolls fast. all obstacles can be avoided and some scree can it slippery. It would be a great hiking or trail running spot however, not many worries twisting an ankle. This was a disappointment and didn't have enough to keep a technical rider remotely interested. I can see someone saying it is intermediate due to the elevation gain, but beyond that, yawn!!!

    I love these trails. Easy climb up the Jeep road and blast down many different trails.

    Nice set of trails....it is set up like a ski resort where the gravel/dirt road is your "lift" and the trails all snake down the mountain back to the "lift"....just ride up the road and pick a trail to go down....just keep in mind what valley you are dropping into....some of the trails off to the right will not come back to the start point....be aware of your travels and enjoy the hill climb up the road.....the down hills are so worth it....I would recommend pads and a helmet if you are really going to push it down the hills...its a bit Rocky

    We went down this year for the annual Millerfest man what a great time, like others have said long tough climbs, some fast fun downhills with some technical sections mixed in, there are lots of places to play ride and have fun, I'll add a couple video's I made.

    The geisinger trails are a nice network of trails. They are pretty well marked and there are some very challenging climbs.

    Nice trail systems, good up hills and down hills. A little rocky, but helps gain experience with technical climbing. One of the top spots in Pennsylvania.

    Go with someone who knows the trails. Visited on advice..trails are not marked well. Climb up and speed down...very rocky in places. Most likely desreves a better review but I could not navigate my way around.

    My brief review... It kicks ass. I love this place. I have been riding my mountain bike for a long time, but I really learned how to ride at Geisinger. Technical enough to teach you how to handle your bike. Great race training. It may be relatively short, but you can put in 20 miles, and I can tell you if you do you'll feel like you did something. Most of it is either climbing or nice flowing downhills. A great cross country venue.
