This trail has “epic” written all over it. It’s definitely not an easy ride as it travels through remote sections of Forbes State Forest. Competent first-aid and backcountry bicycle repair skills are of extreme importance. Help can only be found at the Pennsylvania Highway 31 crossover and down at Laurel Hill State Park. Ride with a level head and let the spirits of the forest guide your soul. Highlights: full-day excursion with endless side-trip possibilities, wilderness experience; Laurel Hill State Park amenities include swimming lake, food concession, restrooms, fishing. Tread: Old woods roads, logging roads, dirt roads, paved roads, snowmobile trails, and a touch of singletrack make up the route.
