Mountain Biking in Rothrock State Forest

Rothrock State Forest has become a premier mountain biking area in the state, containing a combined 290 miles of trails and state forest roads open for this use.

Trail riding ranges in difficulty from easy to extreme -- from gently sloping forest and logging roads to rocky ridgetop trails and steep side-hill climbs.

Several organized rides are held each year.
