Trail Description
About this trail
the trails are pretty clearly marked, which way you go is up to you, my buddies and i ride the trails both ways for more miles, experience and just for somthing different.

there are some intermediate trails throughout, also some very technical climbs, on the one trail there is a pretty sweet rock wall we always spend some extra time trying to see how high we can go on it taking cool pics and laughing when we fall off of it.
there are tons of bridges and some log rides.

there is a lot of climbing so this is not a great winter trail when you get a couple of inches of snow it makes for a very difficult ride, i don't mean challenging its just not fun.

Q: Is there a map marking the different trails? -Guest

A: Not that I've seen yet. Your best bet is using Strava to find the sections and trail segments. but all the trails are marked.

Review: Just starting out in the sport and did a fair amount of pushing the bike but I knew that would be the case going in based on my fitness and technical ability. Trails were well marked overall. Well maintained with nice bridges and a variety of features. My 15 year old and I rode a 29er and a 27.5 respectively which allowed us a bit more rollover when dealing with the rocks. Great system in my newcomer opinion but definitely more fun the fitter and more skilled you are. Can't wait to come back here next time I visit the area.

Review: Roaring Run is an all around win. Technical trails full of rocks and roots with some bridges thrown in to mix things up. There seem to be some new trails being built so I can't wait for those to be opened. Definitely more of a climb-oriented trail. Not too many crazy descents, but there are more than enough features there to hold your attention.

Review: This is a very clean set of trails that's lots of fun. It is very technical and has a good bitof climbing. Lots of rocks and boulders to ride over. Always have a blast when a group of us go

Review: Take the trail directly off the Parking area. Somewhat of a climb up but the obstacles and technical stuff on top of the hill makes it worth it. Be careful of the downhill. Then cross the creek and hit the blue loop. Nice way to stay off the rails to trails.

Review: Trails are a blast, especially if you like a technical challenge. Difficult to ride without getting off bike at times. Lots of rock obstacles. Can be rooty, but only in a few sections. Some of the trail has washed away and needs maintenance. Scenic.

Review: Great trail this is a solid intermediate trail. It rises to elevation and trys to mostly stay there. Some big ups no big downs. The leaves right now make things difficult on a new trail. Had some fun and only rode maybe half. Could use some IMBA touches for tail erosion, however the people who have built and maintained have done an absolutely great job. Thank you looking forward to riding again. rode (Nov 11 2012)

Review: Rode these trails today and they are some of the best in western PA. Nice tight single track with some roots and rocks mixed in. Nothing too hard, but all good riding. Mostly intermediate trails with just a little expert sections mixed in. I parked at the lot and road to just past the small bridge and then took a left and took the center trail. Made a 10 mile loop.

Review: I did about 5 named trails here, and except for the rails-to-trails, they are all expert. I'm solid intermediate on a 29er, and I had very little fun. Lot's of potential, but no "flow" to speak of, and I was off the bike as much as I was on it.

Review: To arrive at the Blue Trail, leave the parking lot and travel down the Rail to Trail. When you have just passed the Trail/Road on the left that runs beside Roaring Run Creek you will see a grassy area, also on the left. Turn in there. There is a porta potty nearby. There will be an entrance to the Blue marked trail straight ahead, going uphill. That is the direction they suggest you ride the trail. The Blue trail is very well marked.

Review: Trails were initially hard to find when riding up the rail trail from the parking lot. Ended up taking the steep trail up the right side of the river bed. Beautiful scenery. Trails that supposedly branch to the left from the rail trail were not very clearly marked. Definitely intending to go back and re-ride this place as soon as possible to find the trails others seem to have found in the videos.
