Mountain Biking Pipeline Loop

  Add a review
#186 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#9,364 in the world

Mix of Forest road, rocky singletrack, old mining roads and great relatively smooth singletrack. Head out the road and just past mile marker seven pass the orange gate and turn Right on the trail. Follow this to the top of the ridge. It will dog leg after a tough climb and keep going up past an old pump house. Once to the clearing at the top take the trail to the Right. Take each Right that you can until you pop back onto the single track on top of the old pipeline. It's rocky but very fast and fun. There are many loops and trails you can take. Feel free to contact me with any questions on how to finish off the ride and any number of ways.

Rider questions

Q: When you say "Head out the road to mile marker 7," are you talking about Route 42? Can you give directions from the Roaring Creek parking lot?

    The Pipeline Loop does not exist, per se. The images here were taken on Big Mountain Trail. http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/cs/groups/public/documents/document/dcnr_20028405.pdf

    I rode Big Mountain Trail last weekend, it is quite a journey. Mix of old growth pine forest to very rocky singletrack. The trail all but disappears at parts due to growth, but is still findable and also opens up. Once you get up to the trail, the elevation changes are minimal, but getting up to or coming down from Big Mountain Trail is a climb, or a fun downwhill.
