Laurel Mountain Ski Resort

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 8

Miles and miles of single track trails surround the ski area. The ski are offers downhill exterme biking on weekends and holidays. You can ride hard down the slopes ore even cut your own trail through the area and use the ski lift to return up the 900 vertical feet you just rode. This comes in handy for the weak hearted riders like me ;-) This area is worth the trip so come on up and ride all the trails up here!

Summary:
Great trail network. Felt is was a little to predictable until I happened upon outcrop trail. That was expert as it promised it would be. Lots of rock, boulders. Roots great obstacles. Reminded me a lot of moraine

Summary:
This is one of my favorite places to go on the weekends. Miles and miles of trails that offer a variety of rides. Really cool for those who like a technical challenge. The rock gardens on Black Bear, Silvermine and the lower end of Wolf's Rocks will either have you dabbing or salivating, depending on the type of ride you enjoy. And those aren't the "expert" trails. There are also plenty of man-made obstacle to play on and test your skills.

There is not much in the way of challenging climbs, which makes the majority of the trails very fast.

Recommended Route:
Interstate to Bill Alberts, to Towhee, to Silvermine, to Black Bear to Spruce Run - makes for one very fun and challenging loop!

Summary:
One of my favorite trails in the area. Rocks, roots, logs, scenery, it's got it all. For some good maps of the trails and loops, check this site http://www.cyclesa.com/offroad/tourinfo.php?region=3&tourId=23

Recommended Route:
I like Mainline to Loop Trail, run a few combo's of Lippo's Loop & Towhee then down Towhee to Summit Rd. A few hundred yards back up Summit Rd. to Spruce Run Trail back up to Towhee, right turn on Bill Albert's Trail back downhill to Mainline and the parking lot.

Summary:
Tough and Technical, especially suited to longer travel rigs, however, an accomplished Cyclovore can pick his line and foil those rock-gardens. Lots of muscle ripping vertical and log jams. This place is usually not my "cup of tea", but it makes for a good change of pace, plus it sharpens your skills and builds your strength.

Recommended Route:
The whole mountain has a complex system of hubs and spurs. Most trails are named marked and mapped. To myself, thats not really what I want in a ride, but I guess it is necessary for the less adventerous of our ranks.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
West Branch Basin. Not a trail but a location. My location,this is the best around here.
