Mountain Biking Roaring Creek Watershed

****   Add a review
#73 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#2,852 in the world

Gravel and dirt forest road that runs along the Roaring Creek reservoir and watershed. I great ride for beginners. Mile markers are posted for the 8 miles out and 8 miles back. Tables and porta-johns are spaced out over the whole ride. Plenty of places to stop if you wish and enjoy the views of the reservoir. You can fish to, catch and release. There are a few areas that are not open to the public so stay alert to those if you try to head off the main trail.
You can go hammer out a nice 16 mile ride or take your time thru the woods and try to see the wildlife. Last time I was out I saw deer, turkeys, woodpeckers and an oriole.
