Located in the most southwest reaches of Pennsylvania, the Ryerson Station rides are truly off-the-beaten-path. Both rides start at Ryerson Station State Park with an easy and relaxing ride along its serene sixty-two-acre lake. One long climb will challenge those on the ramble, while the cruise offers an additional 10-mile loop and one additional long climb. The return ride is a relaxing one, following the South Fork of Wheeling Creek as it snakes its way between the county’s notorious hills. Recover from the ride with a cool dip in the swimming pool and enjoy the state park’s fine picnic facilities.

Did the longer ride plus a few miles for a total of 33. Great roads with little or no traffic, lots of wildlife and good climbs. Don't miss stopping at the Jordan General Store; met some great people there. Facilities at Ryerson are very good. Good campground and great pool (although closed at the time of my ride) and showers (open during daylight hours) nearby.

My husband and I did the 19 mile ramble, very nice trail, no traffic to speak of. The climb on Long Run road (1.5 miles) was very challenging for a beginner, but an exciting ride down the other side, need very good brakes on your bike. Would do this ride over again. Very relaxing and pretty scenery.
