What an honor to be the one to post this trail system!
This park has a beautiful lake, beach, and camping to compliment a beautiful, well built trail network. I anticipate this diamond shall become even more beautiful as she gets polished.
I read where someone described this place as a 30+ mile natural pump track.
I would say this is fairly accurate except you add some hills and some fairly large rollers.
Not monster climbs mind you, but where there is down, there is also up.
Allegrippis will have you pumping and jumping down the hills and up as well.
Of course, the faster you ride it and more momentum you carry the better it flows.
This theory will also leave you quite satisfyingly worked at the end of the ride.
I tried to leave no stone unturned in my quest to discover these trails so hopefully this can help you.
You'll find the trails well marked so trust the map.
I started at the Seven Points Rd trailhead and did the network to the West first.
The Dark Hollow trail starts off the fun with a fast, flowey descent and climb back up to the Shade Tr. I rode counterclockwise to the Allegheny Tr to Barrel Bay and back.
The West side seemed a bit rockier than the East side of 7 Pts but I wouldn't say it is that technical. I didn't find the black trail to be much more difficult than the blues.
I then climbed up the Stony Trail East to Bakers Hollow Rd trailhead and the start of some real fun. The Buck to Doe and back Fawn was really fast and flowey and got me ready for the rollers to come. I then headed out the ridge on Allie, Grippis and Ridge. What a ball! Just fast, various sized, pumpy rollers on out to the point. At the intersection I stopped to check out the views (and have a little safety break) From there I rode Berry Patch, Loco Motive and Red Legs back to the Grippis Tr. I found these to roley with a mixture of rocks on the Loco Motive. I then rode Grippis and Ridge back to the point and picked up Rays Revenge. This was easily my favorite Tr (one not to be missed). Rays rolled fast down hills with pumps and jumps with some sweet, natural table tops. I took Rays over to the Sidewinder, Osprey and Hydro Loops. I was expecting the Hydro Loop to roll along the lake and offer more views but this was not the case. After Hydro it was more of the same roley poley fun on Eagle Tr, Sleek Dog, then Doe back to Buck where finally you ride the Stoney Tr and descend on out to the 7 Points Rd where you can spin it out as you rip on down to the beach for a well deserved plunge in to the lake.
Wow, what a great ride! I'll be back!
If you don't feel like doing such an epic ride then I might recommend doing the East side trls from 7 Points and skipping the West or for even less, you can ride all the trails East from the Bakers Hollow Trailhead.
From here you should be able to get a pretty good feel for what the Allegrippis Trls are all about.

Summary:
First time on this trail. Was very nicely laid out. Very fast. Perfect for 29er. Was very hot today. Other than that it was all it claims to be. If you are looking for obstacles this is not for you. There was enough uphill to keep the heart pumping

Recommended Route:
Buck to doe to slippery dog to eagle to hydro loop. 11 miles

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Roth rock., Moraine, N Park, laurel highlands ski area is awesome!!

Summary:
These trails are in my backyard so I ride them quite a bit. It's a nice, fast flowing trail system with buttery smooth trails, tight berms, and plenty of rollers. These trails were "purpose built" so there aren't any really long climbs or descents, but rather a very nice mix of both. You can definitely fly through these trails.

There are some semi-technical areas but if you're into massive rock gardens, or big drops you should look elsewhere.

These trails are all about F-L-O-W.

Recommended Route:
Any route that gets you to "Hydro Loop." Great views and a nice little spot to chillax. If you've ridden the loop you know what I'm talking about.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Blue Knob State Forest or Resort, Rothrock State Forest.

Summary:
Just rip it. That is all. No rock gardens, logs, benches, ect or as I like to call it "Dude Habitat" just superb single track that undulates along fall lines, into ravines and through pine forest lined with moss beds. The rollers abound aplenty and if you want to catch your hair on fire just crank it through the rollers.The trail's difficulty increases with speed. A ride in the fall and winter opens up a lot of the views of the lake and far into ravines and valleys. It's a nice change to be able to ride and look around a bit without picking your way through technical trails.

Best part is that you do not need a gagillion dollar bike to have fun on the trail. Dust off your old 1998 Trek, Cannondale, whatever and get out there and hammer.

Not sure what snobbery reviewers are talkinga about. Parking lots are full and friendly and some time take on a tailgate feel.

Recommended Route:
Working your way down to Hydro Loop is crazy fun and smooth.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Yellow Creek state park near Ebensburg / Indiana area. Not really close but just as fun.

Summary:
Fun trail with lots of mini-whoopdees. Not technical - even "black diamond" sections are suitable for near-beginners. Never ridden a trail with so many 2-10 foot ups and downs along it - fun roller-coaster experience. Excellent berries in July :). Would benefit from some added technical variety along the trail.

Recommended Route:
Hydro loop was my favorite.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Trails near Tussey Mt. in State College will give you the technical challenges you may want - mucho rock gardens.
