TOPIC: Southern Tier to Raystown Lake Sunday

Re: Southern Tier to Raystown Lake Sunday 3 years ago #37786

You can tell by my tire how perfect the trail conditions were. It was just traction city.

The 1970's: No knee pads, helmets, brakes, or over cautious soccer mom's. It's just how we rolled...

Whenever I see a rider on the trail without a hat, it makes me mad. It's like, I wear a hat, so they should wear a hat too. Sometimes I say helpful things to them, like, "hey, where's your hat?".

Re: Southern Tier to Raystown Lake Sunday 3 years ago #37787

it was my first time down there, certainly won't be my last, conditions great, the atmosphere with other riders,,, we chatted with one of the guys who helped get the trails started... gave NAMBA folk some things to keep in mind as we go towards our Jakes Rocks Project.

vodoo, where did you park, what side did you ride? did you get to hyrdo,,, rays revenge??

Re: Southern Tier to Raystown Lake Sunday 3 years ago #37788

certainly worth the ride, I will want to get back down there later in season, when my legs and lungs are a bit more up to the task..

We parked at the Buck Trail lot.

This was our transport vehicle:



We rode Buck, Allie, Grippis, Ridge, Berry Patch, Sidewinder, Osprey, Hydro, and Fawn.

I wanted to do more, including Ray's Revenge, but my riding partner was a tad under the weather. Next time we'll hit every trail in the joint.

Could somebody please post a map or directions on how to get there? I'm a little under the weather (internet lazy) because I just got back from Wilkesboro, NC and it has been raining since I got back. Heavy depression is setting in, so I got to get out on the bike and ride MF ride. Thanks in adavnce!

vodoo, we were parked right across from you,, towards the end.. the bunch of old guys, the day was fantastic.. how long did it take you guys to get down there.. I hope to get down again, mid summer, and then in the fall.


my guess is just a tad under 3 hours from warren... about 315 from jamestown,,, I am only guessing here, but probably a little less than three from Bradford, PA which is on 219....

Re: Southern Tier to Raystown Lake Sunday 3 years ago #37795

It took us exactly three hours from Olean.

We will definitely be back very soon. The trails around us probably need another month to dry out, so I may be there every weekend until then.

We may even drag the camper down there for a weekend or two.

If you go, check out the Main Street Cafe in Alexandria on the way back. Good eats and it's right on the way home!!

My girlfriend and I made it down to Raystown twice last summer. The first time we ended up staying for two nights, and the second for one night. The best place to camp is definitely at the 7 Points Campground. The facilities are extremely clean, and you can ride to the small trailhead (drive to the larger one). Here was the view I woke up to at our campsite.

The best place to eat, in my opinion, is Boxer's Cafe in Huntingdon. The place is biker friendly, so you can go there smelling like a mixture of rhino a$$ and swamp water and no one will bat an eye. Plus, they have a whole stack of Dirt Rag magazines to look over while you wait for your food. The Rueben was especially good. www.boxerscafe.com/

Gotta Love the Allegrippis Trails:

oh, Jake, I forgot you had to stay home and do homework,, actually we didn't have a great time at all. there was 3 inches of snow on the ground, some mean spirited skunks, and we all had flats, since none of us went ghetto tubless..

so you two didn't miss much,, those pics, are just stock photos I found on the internet,
