east coast singletrack


I am discovering more of my local trails in steel city. But whats amazing is what the locals have done with their limited space. In Boulder look at Heil Ranch which is 5000 acres with 8 miles of trails. Here in Pittsburgh these guys have built 15 miles of trails in a 500 acre park. And the trails are all quality. Oh but there are NO long climbs... so there are no long descents either...

Yeah, I love that stuff. I frequently ride a 300 acre farm out there with 12 miles of trail - and it's all great. You get yourself a SS yet? The scene out there for SS is very strong.

We used to ride Platte River St Park in NE. Same stuff. 420 acres and something like 15-20 quality miles of tight singletrack.

That was my experience in two years living around Boston. Small areas with gobs of kick ass techy trail crammed in. Good stuff!

I don't have SS yet... But I grabbed my old hardtail from my folks place in philly and I'm set to take the gear off.
