Lots of doubletrack up & down the ridges. Rugged singletrack with rocks, roots, logs. Pretty technical.

Summary:
Lots of flowing single track, lung busting climbs, a little chunk, jumps & small drops thrown in. Brady's Run hasn't been reviewed since 2010 and we've added a lot of new, quality mileage since then with more to come. A dedicated group of locals keep the trails in good riding shape. Several race series' have added the park to their schedule and always gets good reviews from the riders.

Brady's Run is multi-use so be on the lookout for hikers & horses. Please be courteous to the other trail users and remember that hikers & horses have the right of way.

Recommended Route:
Brady's Run can be difficult to navigate. The trails are not well marked and there's really not a good map available, though a local tattoo artist is putting the finishing touches on a very thorough map! Your best bet is to find a local that knows their way around. Post on the BABES facebook page for a guide, or search Strava for popular routes.

Summary:
Awesome Trails: Has some great hills to climb and fun fast downhills. Well maintained by BABE Club and ocassional horseback riders. Plenty of bail outs along the trails for those who get tired!

Recommended Route:
I always start at horse arena, go up from there and ride the length of park along the Southside. Once at other end by playground, cross creek up Cardiac Hill, ride the length of North Side and coming out near the oval track across road from the Ice Arena.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
For family/leisure ride at Moraine State Park on paved trail or off road in the rocky trails. Montour Trail is fun and easy riding. Bavington is not bad either for the time I spent there.

Summary:
I started on the Trail North, got lost several times trying to stay on the loop, then was stopped by a large tree down over the trail before you hit the ballfields. So...I ran out of time to hit up all the fun stuff on the south side of the lake. My impression of the trails is: lots of climbing!, not alot of "real" singletrack"(though the south side may of contained more of this), drains well after a good rain, not well marked or maintained(no blazes, downed tree looked like it had been there for awhile and was right on the main trail, over unkept appearance). Also expected more technical trails. For the most part I found these trails to be relatively tame. If I lived closer I would love these trails just for all the climbing they contain. If you are passing through they're worth the stop, but since I live over an hour away I won't be going out of my way to ride here...

Recommended Route:
Start at the playground, go across the metal bridge to get onto trail north and start climbing...

Summary:
One of the nicer set of trails in the Pittsburgh area. They have recently done a lot of work creating new trails and short loops. Many logs and other fun stuff, but hardly any rocks. Mostly single track with a couple killer downhills.

Recommended Route:
I usually ride from the A-frame up behind the the park. You can either ride the new section to the right, or across the mountain to the left. Once you get down to the road its a nasty uphill back to the truck.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Moraine, Heartwood Acres.

Summary:
Great fast singletrack with a few hairy descents (Descent of death off of wildwood trail is no joke). There are also some great man-made obsticles in the log loop area.

Recommended Route:
Overall the south side of the park is the best and should be ridden clockwise
