“Technical” best describes this incredible Allegheny Mountain trail. This trail is made up of the perfect combination of fast, twisty singletrack and rounded, technical boulders. The setting is like none other, with every turn in the trail showing yet another unique natural feature. At the heart of Allegheny National Forest, Minister Creek is an area that has remained untouched for some time. Beautiful hemlocks, oaks, maples, and cherries fill the woods as you cross the lacework of feeder streams to Minister Creek. Highlights: rock climbing, rock canyon, huge boulders, crawfish laden streams, lung-buster climbs, screamer downhills, loads of natural jumps. Tread: most of the route on some of the most beautiful singletrack in northwest Pennsylvania.
