Tons of good riding. MTB race trails at the resort, X-country ski trails, single-track, fire roads. Miles and miles of trails. Good stuff.

Summary:
Hidden valley used to have some great trails. Take the dirt road (trail) up the ski lift in front of the resort, and follow that to the summit, it eventually leads you down again, and up into the woods. This used to be great riding, however they have logged it, and now you end up criss crossing the ski slopes all day instead of riding in the woods. Its not my style, and I dont know many people who enjoy looking at ski lift towers, and rock quarries which are plenty visible. The atmosphere of Hidden Valley is now one of a construction zone if you ask me.
Much better riding can be found across the road. Instead of pulling into hidden valley park at their mountain bike shop along rte 31. Cross the road and you will see several small ponds, hug the left side of those along the woods until you see a trail, take it. That will lead to a long climb, and at the top there is a several trails, all of which branch again and again for a lot of miles. You can go from here, all the way over to rte 30 (laurel summit) if you pick the right turn offs.
I give this place a 3 start average
1 star for hidden valley
5 stars for the riding directly across the street.I believe its called forbes state forest.

Recommended Route:
Dont ride AT hidden valley.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Laruel mountain (rte 30)

Summary:
there are a range of different types of terrrains including root gardens, loose rock, and basic dirt trails. it is a fun trail and can take you through some neat trails. the trails are mostly geared toward intermediate to expert riders

Recommended Route:
Drive into the main enterance of hidden valley and follow the road until you get to gardner road. as you get on to gardner, immediately after you make a right turn look on the right side of the road and there will be an enterance to a trail. the best riding is on that network of trails which crosses 2 roads which are Jones Mill Run, And firetower road. some of them also take you to seven springs which has an excellent downhill

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Seven Springs

Summary:
I personally don't really like it here. There is some fast single track but that is about it. A good place for novice/intermediate riders. I have been here many times and have not seen anything spectacular. I have rode the race course, the trails heading towards 7springs, the trails going to Kooser State park, and the section across Route 31(which is now under new owners, Ride at your own risk) and anywhere else we could find a trail. Just doesn't provide the riding I enjoy which is lots of logs, rock gardens, step grades etc...

Summary:
There are plenty of large hills to go both up and down, a lot of times on the ski slopes. Once you are in the woods, you'll encounter fire roads and singletrack that will take you all the way to Kooser State Park.

Recommended Route:
I would recommend taking the race course for a ride, it poses the best challenges and the most exciting ride forward or backward.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Seven Springs has a nice trail and Laurel Mountain ski resort has really good downhill, but be prepared to climb back up!
