Designed by mountain bikers and built by the International Mountain Bicycling Association, the Allegrippis Trails at Raystown Lake is a premier single-track mountain biking trail system located in the Eastern United States.
The 24 trails in the system were designed and built to provide sustainable trails for a variety of human uses including mountain biking, hiking, trail running, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
The Allegrippis Trails are arranged as stacked loops, giving the user the opportunity to plan a route as short or as long as they would like. There are nearly endless combinations, so even riders who come back time after time have the opportunity to use a new route each time.
Although the trails are rated "easiest", "moderate", and "most difficult", they can all be safely traversed by users of all skill levels, but users should expect their normal pace to be slowed as the difficulty increases. The ratings are provided to give all users a good idea of what challenges to expect. These ratings only apply to trails in the Allegrippis Trails system, they should not be compared to other trails or their difficulties.
You can access the Allegrippis Trails at trailheads along Seven Points Road just past the Seven Points Entrance Station and on Bakers Hollow Road just before the Susquehannock Campground Entrance Station.
The trails were developed under the direction of the Friends of Raystown Lake in a unique partnership between the Appalachian Regional Commission, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, US Army Corps of Engineers, Southern Alleghenies Planning and Development Commission, Huntingdon County Visitors Bureau, Huntingdon County Business and Industry, Pennsylvania Conservation Corps, and hundreds of volunteer laborers that augmented the professional construction services of the International Mountain Bicycling Association.
The Allegrippis Trails are available for public use year-round (exceptions may be made for safety reasons). For information about holding a competitive event or demonstration on the trails, contact Friends of Raystown Lake c/o US Army Corps of Engineers Raystown Lake Recreation Area at 814-658-6809.
