The Trails

Raystown

There are 33 miles of smooth, fast, flowing trails surrounding Raystown Lake, the largest lake in Pennsylvania. They range from beginner to expert level in three stacked loops, making for endless combinations. This sustainably-built trail system is open year-round to all users, is owned by the Friends of Raystown Lake, and is maintained by the volunteer efforts of the Raystown Mountain Biking Association.

The trails are designed by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) as dual-directional, multi-use trails designed for mountain biking, though at Dirt Fest we operate them in one direction to control traffic. Equestrian activities are prohibited on the trails.

The network of trails comprising the Allegrippis Trail System is constructed of three large loops. The A, B, and C loops each have a easy trail, moderate trail, and difficult trail, denoted by colors green, blue, and black. The difficulty is based on several factors including elevation gain and loss, trail tread, and location relative to emergency access.

Signage at all of the intersections indicates to users trail name, location to nearest parking, and an emergency response identification tag. Throughout the system you will find ten large maps posted for easier navigation.
