Passing through the Pine Creek Gorge, a 19 mile rail-trail for mountain biking runs through a remote wilderness from Blackwell north to Ansonia. The Gorge (a.k.a. Pennsylvanias Grand Canyon) has up to 1000 feet forested walls and a 100 wide river. There are numerous cascading brooks flowing down both sides of the gorge into the Pine Creek. The river is habitat for trout, bald eagles, otters, beavers and bear. During the wet season of April & May, the area is reminicent of the Pacific Northwest.

A grueling, but beautiful, mountain bike loop can be formed by combining the Pine Creek Trail at the gorge bottom with the West Rim Road (dirt) atop. When in the area, consider fly fishing or horseback riding with either Tigoa Trails (717) 724-6592 or Mountain Trails (717) 376-5561. Canoe trips can be arranged in wet season with Pine Creek Outfitters (717) 724-3003.

Overall, Pine Creek Trail is the 3rd most popular mountain bike trail of all 75 mountain biking rides in Pennsylvania. Several of the better mountain bike trails are nearby Pine Creek Trail including Cedar Mountain Trails and Trestle Hollow Trail.
