Mountain Biking The Trails at Jakes Rocks
#44 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
Nice trail system, with lots of potential. About 10 miles of mostly flowy, some more technical, trail built in 2016, with more planned for 2017. Plan eventually calls for something like 30 miles of mtb trails in the area.

Take route 6 east out of Warren. Turn left onto route 59, Take the third road to the right, Browns Run Road, just past the bridge over the small creek. After about 1/2 mile turn left onto Jakes Rocks Road (Forest Road 160). Continue past huge water storage reservoir, passing Forest Road 160D on right after 1/2 mile, then passing Forest Road 259 on right after another 3/4 mile. Continue straight on Forest Road 160, passing Forest Road 259 on right after another 1 mile. After passing 259 take the next left, then turn right in 1/4 mile - parking area is on the left. Trail access from corner of parking area.
Awesome trail network with 30 plus miles. Techy climbs and some awesome downhills.Thank |
Rocks galore woodwork in appropriate places
Trail mileage open as of July 2019 is up to 20 with another 8 or so coming on-line this fall.Thank |
This network keeps getting better. Classic IMBA style stacked loop system with super well built, hard packed shale trails. Amazing rock mosaic sections and wood-work at all water crossings. Plenty of climbing with enough grade reversals to make it pretty easy. Fun new gravity trail called "Ursula", great views over the Allegheny reservoir and massive blocks of moss covered rock to ride past and between. Riding the whole thing will be about 2 hours if you keep it moving. A couple of the downhills have sharp switchbacks and could have been designed for more flow, plenty of little jumps, some doubles to keep you interested and everything is super user friendly. Have lunch on the patio at the marina overlooking the reservoir to finish.Thank |
Phase 2 of the trail project opened up late September, an additional 10 miles of intermediate/advanced trail segments are now available in addition to the initial 10 miles of beginner-intermediate level trails. tighter more challenging segments are now included with 2 black-diamond runs as wellThank |
An incredibly well built trail system with more in the works. Fast and flowing trails with fun but not death defying features. Decent elevation change, but no super long climbs.Thank |
