So I moved to Pittsburgh pretty recently but so far I haven’t found trails I really like. Back home in Alaska right near my house was a ski area attached to a ton of trails. You could ride back there for hours.
I realize Pittsburgh is not AK but I have been hoping to find something kinda similar since Pittsburgh is so hilly.
Here is one of my favorite areas to ride back home:
Welcome to Pittsburgh! Like the bear bell, which you won’t need here, but might still be a good idea as I suspect our trails are more crowded. I believe there is an active trail riding group, but don’t know anyone in it or have contact info. Call any local shop and I suspect they can help you with contacts.
Not trail related, but Bicycle Heaven is open. Go.
MTB Project / Trailforks are a great resource around here.
Personally check some of the trails Flying Squirrel / Country Club at Alameda park (butler, pa), Iron Gate in Frick, Dr J / Koto buki in north park.
For road trips to some riding destinations within 3 hours or so, head up to new trails at Jakes Rocks in Allegheny National Forest, Some fun techy riding down at Big Bear WV, or awesome smooth flowy trails at Allegrippis trails @ Raystown Lake.
