Summary:
I have ridden and raced in many locations along northern Pa. and the southern tier of NY. With that said, this is still the best riding I have found. The Rocky gap loops work every aspect of your ability. Both physical and technical. I have seen more than one bike have to be carried out just from how hard the trail beats you in places. If you want smooth long singletrack, go elsewhere. You want fast technical rips through the woods, ride this place.

Recommended Route:
From Warren, follow 337 south through pleasant township. the parking lot is about 6 miles from the intersection of Pleasant drive and route 6.

Reviewed by: MZ , from Sugar Grove

Summary:
This trail is outstanding. It is closed to atv's in the spring and fall, so you have it all to yourself. Riding the west loop backwards is my favorite, most of the atv traffic is slow due to the technical nature of the trail, and the faster bikes can be heard well in advance. During spring thaw, the trail is nearly unrideable due to the surface being either thick clay or very abrasive limestone powder. If you know what you are doing, you can make the east loop super long by riding into the state game lands and up to hearts content and then riding the tanbark trail back towards Rocky Gap with a little road riding to link it up. There are lease roads to the east of 337 that minimize the time on pavement. You can also make a nice loop down thru Morrison Run and back up by the radio tower at the top of Mohawk Ave with numerous offroad routes back to the west loop.

Recommended Route:
Ride the west loop backwards, it seems like it is all downhill. The east loop connects up with the state game lands for a super long ride.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Tankbark Trail, North Country Trail, State Game Lands, Morrison Run Area, Numberous lease and logging roads to shorten or lengthen the Rocky Gap loop and also for an "out" when the trail is too soft.
