Mountain Biking in Weiser State Forest
An 8-mile, shared-use trail -- running the length of the valley on the Roaring Creek Tract -- is open to visitors interested in a relatively level ride. This trail offers a leisurely trip through the scenic valley along the creek and reservoirs.
Many roads and trails on Weiser State Forest are open to mountain bikes. The Roaring Creek, Haldeman, and Greenland tracts in Dauphin County are very popular biking destinations.
Twenty-eight miles of marked, shared-use trails are available, as well as another 27 miles of state forest roads. The variability of the topography in this region offers variety for all skill levels.
