Mountain Biking Old Ash Dam Trails

***   Add a review
#127 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#5,005 in the world

These trails, although relatively small, offer alot of different terraine. Old woods roads, single track, and 4x4 trails. Plenty of hills in the woods made up of mostly single and double track and a really nice flat course that runs around the bottom of the old reservoir, which has been drained. This trail is mostly hard packed shale but if it rains there can be deep puddles and alot of mud. If you live in Central PA and need a decent place to ride that is close and is not to technical, i.e. you just want to get a nice fast XC ride in, check this place out. It's less than a mile off of 11&15 so you know its not out of your way.

    They but a pipeline in right through the middle of everything. The trails are ruined.

    Not sure if these are still opened but I've seen no trespassing signs up today and I really have no idea where the trail head is. I was killing time and saw this on the map.

    We have a lot of fun on these trails & they are close to home, they weave all over the place, some single track & obstacles, even some drops and you can't get lost - really because you can always end up on an adjacent road or cemetery- fine if you know the local roads. I don't know how legal it is to ride there but I've never been stopped.
