Seven Mountains For Mountain Biking

The 72nd most popular mountain bike trail in Pennsylvania.

Southeast of State College in north-central Pennsylvania, the Seven Mountains route is a popular mountain bike ride. The trails vary greatly in technical difficulty and the terrain is mainly hilly except for Tussey Mountain Trail, John Wert Path, and parts of the Shingletown area. Trails are a good mix of single track and double track. Trails to not ride up hill: Wildcat Gap Trail, Spruce Gap Trail, Old Laurel Run Road Trail, advanced part of Bald Knob Ridge Trail.

To reach the trailhead from US Route 322, turn off of US Route 322 toward Tussey Mountain Ski Resort (about 5 miles east of State College). Follow road about a quarter mile past the ski resort to a Bureau of Forestry parking area on your left (just before a bridge over a stream).

Overall, Seven Mountains is the 72nd most popular mountain bike trail of all 75 mountain biking rides in Pennsylvania.
