Summit Hill was best known for its commanding position over the expansive acres of strip mines that lay on the northwest face of Mount Pisgah. Once a bustling mining town, Summit Hill has now settled into a more tranquil state.

The ascent follows the historic Switchback Gravity Railroad Rail-Trail, right into the town of Summit Hill. Highlights: extreme enduro downhill singletrack, the classic Lung Buster Trail, historic Switchback Gravity Railroad Rail-Trail. Tread: extreme technical, rocky singletrack, paved road, historic Switchback Gravity rail grade.

My Girlfriend and I completed the trail, starting in Summit Hill and heading to Jim Thorpe. The trail starts out in Summit Hill behind the Valero Gas station you head down a paved road past houses for the first mile or so. Beyond that you get to Yellow trail posts which lets you know your on the trail (markers are at every entrance and exit along the route) The trail was allot of fun easy going down, for a challenge start in Jim Thorpe on Flagstaff road and head up the trail.
