Mountain Biking Two Mile Run County Park

#229 of 296 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#10888 in the world

the trails are a network of manmade hiking trails all the way to single track deer trails so, find your poisen and give it a shot. it isn't to hard to find the trails that go around the lake, but it will rack you out if you can't ride technical trails, lots of trees to cross and tons of roots. also bring bug spray.

Getting there
use a map to get to Oil City PA 16301, then from there you will be going to 2 mile run , it's a lake that is 2 miles around. there are lots of trails running around the countryside out there so have a ball and get a GPS or you'll be lost. to get there you need to start out from the oil city vetrans bridge ( there are only two briges there so... anyway you will be heading to the north side from the south side for example and once you cross the bridge you will come to a 4 way that lets you get on rout 8 , you will cross this and go up the big hill and drive up and out that road heading towards dempsytown, drive out this road for about 5 miles or so, you will see signs for two mile run country park , it will be a left turn, make that turn, once you make the turn it will be a tar and chip style road to the main park area unles they paved it recently, then once you arrive, park anywhere and ride till your hearts content.

    The entire network of trails is some of the worst I've ever ridden when it comes to markings and directions. There are literally hundreds of "crossroads" where you could go any direction and there isn't any indication which trail is which. Have a gps and/or charged phone to find your way. It's incredibly frustrating. You can't go here thinking you're going to do 'X' trail, to 'Y' trail, to 'Z' trail. No way to know where you are or where you're heading.

    This trail has a lot of rocks and roots, along with several grueling climbs. Be prepared for a workout. I would NOT recommend this trail for novices. Signage is fair, but not great; it's easy to end up on a bridal trail, which can be brutal.

    These trails are relatively new, well developed, and well maintained. The grades are reasonable - challenging, but not arduous. Rocks and roots, same thing - challenging without making most riders stop all the time.

    There is a map available at the park office that shows the MTB specific trails. A different map online shows other trails that may be open to MTB, but they are not one and the same.

    My only complaint is that trail crossings and junctions aren't all that well marked, and it is easy to end up on a different. The trails do have reasonably good markers, I just sometimes get surprised to see that I'm on a different trail.

    Compared to nearby Kennerdell, the trails are narrower, more MTB specific, and more flowy. The rocks and roots are less severe but more persistent. In other ways it's like Allegrippis-lite; less developed and less mileage, but a conceptually similar network of loops.

    Anything you want to do with a mountain bike, you can find at Two Mile. There are so many miles of trails. The rating I am considering is easy, because there are a lot there that are fairly smooth, but there are a lot of trails out there that go to difficult and beyond, as well.

    Addendum to above directions: cross the Petroleum St. bridge and go straight through the first intersection towards Dempseytown; this is Halydad Run Rd. It is approximately 5 miles to Cherrytree Rd. Make this left onto Cherrytree. There are NO signs for Two Mile Run County Park prior to Cherrytree Rd so watch for the street signs instead. Head back Cherrytree for a few miles and turn left towards the boat and fishing area. This will lead back to the main Park office. The actual trails for this park are terribly marked. I was able to find a horse trail with descent markings but still had trouble following the trail to the end. I spent good deal of time breaking trail because half the time the trail would just peter out or was obstructed by a huge fallen tree. I don't think any trail maintenance has been done here in a while.* Review edited 11/17/2008

    Two Mile Run county park is a great ride if you're in the Oil City area. There are many trails to choose from totalling 20+ miles.
