We rode the east half of the system last time, today we rode the west half.

It's even better!!

These trails are ray-diculously fun.

Kick-azz dinner at Boxer's Cafe in Huntingdon. Try the bacon wrapped shrimp with horseradish sauce.

Totally worth the drive.

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,

I'll scope that place out fo sho.

How about the jumps at this place? I had my bike off the ground more yesterday than all my rides at home last year combined :o

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.

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!!

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.

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....

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
