Mountain Biking High Rocks

****   Add a review
#14 of 295 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#695 in the world

Start at Tohickon Valley Park and follow the RD down towards the pool, but turn at the 1st trail on the right(small wooden bridge at the trail head). When it hits the gravel rd go left and stay on it through the campground. Pick up the trail at the end of the camp sites. There is an upper and low section of the trail. I recommend using the upper section as there are less hikers. Follow the trails all the way to the cliff overlooks and continue past to stover park rd. Cross stover rd and go either left or right as the trail just does a maybe 1.5 mile loop back to stover park rd. I recommend going right. Just follow the trail back to the Tohickon Valley Park. Good ride for everyone. Its a blast for how short it is. Some jumps built off the old 19 century farm rock walls. Nice little sprint climbs, fast rocky downhills and some good technical sections. Recommend going during the week as the place really gets crowded on the weekends with hikers, bikers, and climbers.

    Trails were fun & mildly technical . Just a down right enjoyable day of riding. Locals we're helpful on trail advice being first time here . Did the loop he suggested and just wondered around . Did a lot of the park in 3 hrs. Will return, a lot of off shoot trails to hit off main marked trails yet to explore.

    A very fun ride. Definitely more advanced than Nockamixon if you have ever riden there. A lot of tree roots, rocks, and a few downed trees. Overall, there are a pretty good amount of technical sections. The trails are fairly wide so you have plenty of space to maneuver through technical sections and there is no overgrowth onto the trails. They are well maintained. The only downside is that the trails are not marked well. But a very fun place to go for more advanced riders looking for one of the more difficult trail rides in the area.

    Description of this trail is incorrect. It is not an out and back, but a loop. If you start at the High Rocks parking lot the lower trail will take you to the picnic area next to the campground. If you then ride through the campground the upper trail will bring you back to High Rocks parking lot. Trail is mostly hard pack but has one loose rock section of a hundred yards. If following the above directions it will be on a downhill. There is another section of steep, rooty descent. Both of these tehnical bits are on the lower trail. Upper trail is fast and flowy with some technical bits.

    So many trees down
    Trails are marked very bad
    No flow
    Will never ride again for a few years
    Don't ride here unless you like walking the hole things

    Really good trail system. Great all year round trails. Due to the hurricane there are still a few down trees occupying the trail. There is a very fun downhill jump section
    All for all there are some great trails

    Awesome place to ride in the winter considering it has great drainage. For more advanced riders. Do not come here if you bike does not have any suspension. This place is a blast with a good bike. Technical downhills and jumps fill the trails. Just be prepared to get off your bike because there are lots of trees down.

    I rode this trail today (1/13/13). There are portions of the trail that are closed. Which is why i updated status as closed. You can ride some of it however. We were stopped by park rangers and told we were trespassing... Hopefully the closed sections will be reopened soon. If you do decide to ride it, watch for closed signs and Park rangers!

    Awesome ride today! 27 degrees with the sun was shining all day. First time here, I will definitely be coming back soon and often! I recommend bringing a riding buddy as this trail can get gnarly. Someone to help you if anything goes wrong is definitely a PLUS!

    I grew up riding here, so it's one of my happy places. Watch out for Rick. But this area is a series of trails ranging from expert to medium. There's plenty of gupher trails, fun features for full suspension or a long fun day for fixed gear. If you don't like washed out, eroded, difficult, steep up and downs where you can focus your skill, don't come. The parking lots are filled on nice summer days. Have fun.

    Rode High Rocks for the first time and it was a blast. Very rooty and (of course) rocky. Lots of technical sections and several where you will be off the bike to walk through. Really fun track, best to go with someone who knows it. Final climb is a lungbuster.

    I came here, based on the description, assuming that it would be an easy ride. I just moved, and have been off my bike for most of the summer, so a nice easy trail to get my self back in shape was just what the doctor ordered. Unfortunately this trail was not the cakewalk described here. Loose rock, steep drops, and large roots make this a challenging trail, definitely not for beginners (or just the out of shape). That said, if I was in shape, and my bike in better tune, this would definitely be a blast. Just don't come unprepared.
