Commissioner Run Professional Review and Guide
"Not too easy but not real tough, the Commissioner Run is a great ride for most mountain bikers. It’s in an ideal setting, surrounded by the Susquehannock State Forest, which offers more than 260,000 acres of woods to explore. Nearby is Lyman Run State Park, with a beautiful lake and campground. There is a sandy swimming beach, food concession, boating, fishing, and outstanding hiking in and around the park. The ride begins just west of the Denton Hill State Park ski area and the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum.
The trail passes the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum, which is a must-see stop. The museum exhibits help explain the composition and condition of the forest from past to present. Many of the trails in these northern regions follow the old logging roads, paths, railroads, and slides, so the exhibits help you to better see and understand how they got there. Highlights: beautiful and remote mountain drainage, great wildlife viewing, the impressive Pennsylvania Lumber Museum. Tread: most of the ride follows incredible old woods roads that are hardpacked doubletrack. The rest of the ride is sweet singletrack."
