One big uphill, various paths around it. Just want to keep a highway from going through it, but the decision was already made. The school and the city are destroying trails by the the year. This Place was bigger, with more trails across from it. Now little reamins, but still enough to do some really hard biking. Also I uue the campus as a big path, Hey, grass grows back. Plus people will move when they see you coming.

Summary:
Start at the parking lot on cooper road at the bottom and ride the trail next to the creek until it brings you back to the main fire road. There are some cool trails off to the right and left but head right up the hill, and get ready for your heart to explode because this hill is gonna kick your butt. At the top there are some trails that all go in the same direction and lead to the top of the gorge. Lots of roots and tech spots in this section. When you get to the top you can cross the goat path that heads back down into the gorge or turn around (like I did) and fly back down the path and back to that big hill. You can stay on the gravel path or hang to the left and there are some cool very tech trails that will take you back to the gravel path. At the bottom there are lots of cool trails and stuff to play around on. I love this place and I will be going back soon. This place will demand a lot of your skills so be ready for some serious fun.

Summary:
I see no one has posted in a few years - the small group that continues to ride do a pretty good job of maintaining. The old reviews are accurate that the main trail could be classified as a fire road; however, there are plenty of side trails. Some nice obstacles, bridges etc.

Recommended Route:
If you are familiar with the campus I suggest starting at the Logan house ride the paved path across the ped bridge over the bayfront highway. As soon as you cross the ped bridge take a quick right and take the grassy path around Behrend fields - drop into the woods near the retention basin near the new bridge - drop into the gorge on the first downhill you see (skilled riders only)

If you are a new to the sport or want an easier way in - start at the bottom of cooper rd. cross 4mi creek do the small out and back - cross again and ride the trails along the river to the main fire road hill. Ride to the top (you'll know you are there as you can only go left or right) - if you're in a hurry go right and drop back down to the bottom. If not go left and explore until you find Jordan Rd. (paved) cross Jordan and there is a small loop that will take you to the new athletic center. You can't get lost as the trails wind around the Penn State Behrend campus - have fun!

Summary:
Here's the deal these trails don't exist to anyone but the cross country team and the creek, there hard to maintain, hard to bridge, and fun for us all. The trails are a fairly long ten mile loop, up's down's to one mile in length. Different loop's for skill and diversity, you want to climb climb! You want to scare hiker's go somewhere else. Be curtious show respect and slow down when you see a dog or human this is one of the last in bounds area's in Erie. After this we start driving far away,Asbury Woods has nothing on Behrend. Seriously it's so much fun and I'm thirty and old, we need to protect this gift As LONG AS WE CAN when I'M fifty and slow you can tell me to go to hell till then wise up and look for the wednesday group ride to show you around this beautiful trail system.

Recommended Route:
from second parking lot on campus past tennis courts on right go up go down just hold on.

Summary:
This loop that we do is 8.5 miles and now fire road. I mean anything you can drive a car on isn't mountain biking anyway. This place is awesome.

Recommended Route:
Start at the bottom but go to the right out of the small parking lot. Go down to the creek and ride it untill you see some space across the creek ride there until dead end cross creek again you willsee path new trail ride to dead end. turn around and go back on same side of creek until you reach a large concrete pipe. Cross main fire road and go up. Challenging beyond imagination. At top there is a small loop that has been cut in half by new road. Go to campus and go up. There are numerous trails along the cliff and you can cross Jordan road for yet another loop. Then the downhill home. Sweet
