This is one of those rides that breaks a heart monitor. It’s the ultimate vertical challenge in the state and climbs to the very top of the second highest point in the state. Due to the steep rise and topography, the average temperatures on the mountain are a bit cooler than in the low-lying valleys. The quartzite-capped mountain is situated on the very edge of the Allegheny Front, where it offers commanding views of the shorter Ridge and Valley formations to the east. Only 41 feet shorter that the highest point in Pennsylvania, it is quite a formidable challenge, comparable to that of Mount Davis, Pennsylvania’s highest point at 3,213 feet. Highlights: second highest point and highest vertical climb (1,635 vertical feet) in Pennsylvania, rugged mountain trails, spectacular scenery, high mountain vistas, stellar jumps gnarly singletrack, technical rock-hopping, woodland "ghost town," and state park amenities that include swimming pool, campground, interpretive nature trail, hiking trails, trout fishing on Bobs Creek. Tread: a rugged mountain mix of technical, rocky singletrack, smooth dirt, and gravel doubletrack with some paved sections.
