Lots of flowing single track, lung busting climbs, a little chunk, jumps & small drops thrown in. Brady's Run hasn't been reviewed since 2010 and we've added a lot of new, quality mileage since then with more to come. A dedicated group of locals keep the trails in good riding shape. Several race series' have added the park to their schedule and always gets good reviews from the riders.

Brady's Run is multi-use so be on the lookout for hikers & horses. Please be courteous to the other trail users and remember that hikers & horses have the right of way.

Customer Service

Brady's Run can be difficult to navigate. The trails are not well marked and there's really not a good map available, though a local tattoo artist is putting the finishing touches on a very thorough map! Your best bet is to find a local that knows their way around. Post on the BABES facebook page for a guide, or search Strava for popular routes.

Awesome Trails: Has some great hills to climb and fun fast downhills. Well maintained by BABE Club and ocassional horseback riders. Plenty of bail outs along the trails for those who get tired!

Customer Service

I always start at horse arena, go up from there and ride the length of park along the Southside. Once at other end by playground, cross creek up Cardiac Hill, ride the length of North Side and coming out near the oval track across road from the Ice Arena.

For family/leisure ride at Moraine State Park on paved trail or off road in the rocky trails. Montour Trail is fun and easy riding. Bavington is not bad either for the time I spent there.

I started on the Trail North, got lost several times trying to stay on the loop, then was stopped by a large tree down over the trail before you hit the ballfields. So...I ran out of time to hit up all the fun stuff on the south side of the lake. My impression of the trails is: lots of climbing!, not alot of "real" singletrack"(though the south side may of contained more of this), drains well after a good rain, not well marked or maintained(no blazes, downed tree looked like it had been there for awhile and was right on the main trail, over unkept appearance). Also expected more technical trails. For the most part I found these trails to be relatively tame. If I lived closer I would love these trails just for all the climbing they contain. If you are passing through they're worth the stop, but since I live over an hour away I won't be going out of my way to ride here...

Customer Service

Start at the playground, go across the metal bridge to get onto trail north and start climbing...

This park offers just about everthing that a mtb rider wants at all levels. Biginners can stay on the lower levels while advanced riders can hit the hills, and there are plenty! You must be in shape to ride the hills or you will hate it. It is exercise so i love it and there are plenty of down hill tracks to catch your breath. The only way to enjoy this park is to hit those trails!

Customer Service

I live in beaver so i always start from 2 mile run park (60 entrance to park on top hill or dutch ridge road). Usually enter the trails from the A frame house off of dutch ridge road. These trails are slower and more tricky to ride. If i feel like a faster, speedy trail i head straigt down to playground and hit the trail on other side across creek. You can stay on this trail around ball fields on top of hill all the way to ice rink (very fast). Usually head home on 51 but there is another trail that heads up to patterson heights at park entrance.

It's worth a day trip, even if you've never ridden here before because the trails are well kept and its hard to get lost. Its not terribly technical but you wont be disappointed. Eat a good breakfast, you'll need it.

Customer Service

There is a paved road that takes you to the top quickly and fairly painlessly. From there, its fast and fun for miles all the way to the bottom. Usually any route from the top will take you someplace worth riding so feel free to explore!

One of the nicer set of trails in the Pittsburgh area. They have recently done a lot of work creating new trails and short loops. Many logs and other fun stuff, but hardly any rocks. Mostly single track with a couple killer downhills.

Customer Service

I usually ride from the A-frame up behind the the park. You can either ride the new section to the right, or across the mountain to the left. Once you get down to the road its a nasty uphill back to the truck.

Great fast singletrack with a few hairy descents (Descent of death off of wildwood trail is no joke). There are also some great man-made obsticles in the log loop area.

Customer Service

Overall the south side of the park is the best and should be ridden clockwise

These are some of my all time favorite trails in PA. A little bit of everything (okay no big rocks, that's a bit of a downside) and there are NO hunters allowed. Though I haven't done it all in one run yet it's all ridable. A great place to get strong and keep up skills. If I still lived in Pittsburgh I'd ride there every day, but as it is I only get to ride when I visit my folks.

Customer Service

I start at the playground and cross the creek to get in. I ride that trail until it comes out by the ice rink (great down hill at the end). Then I go back in behind the recycling facility. If I have time I run the log trail and come around through the network that takes me back to the other side of the playground. If I'm short on time I skip the log trail.

What a great trail. A little bit of everything for everybody. Don't get me wrong, you better be ready to climb your tail off. Lots of single track, some fast, some have roots and rocks, and some have logs and ramps. It is being maintained really well and all users of the trail get along really well. It is definitely one of the better trail systems in western Pa. Enjoy.

Customer Service

Go to mtbpittburgh.com for directions or ask a local bike shop. Denali cycles in bridgewater, pa is a great one with weekly rides at brady's.
