Biking

With beautiful scenery all around, biking is one of the most popular activities in the Pennsylvania Wilds region. The trails in our forests and state parks cover a wide variety of terrain - from gently curving pathways to rugged, uphill climbs. Some trails are perfect for a leisurely day of biking while others are more challenging for serious mountain bikers. Many former railway right-of-ways in our region have been converted to biking paths as well.

In the Allegheny National Forest Mountain bikers can use most trails including snowmobile trails, generally open and gated roads in the ANF. These trails are best suited for expert and extreme riders. CLICK HERE for more information.  814-723-5150

In PA State Parks bicycling trails are paved or fine aggregate surface trails, which are generally flat. Mountain biking trails are single track natural surfaces with obstacles and steep climbs and descents. CLICK HERE to find our state parks and biking information for each one. (717) 787-2869
