Stack house park - TRAIL

Stack house park - Trail, Johnstown, Pennsylvania

Many trails, all over the place, to get you started right behind the little exercise is a little downhill section, dirt with log steps, once your at the bottem of that you can find alot of trails by looking along the treeline near the shack, or by riding up the big gravel road and following it, looking along the treeline

All the trails are fun but the ranger doesnt allow bikes on them. The good thing is he patrols in a golf cart and doesnt go on any real trails.

I grew-up in Brownstown, and now live in Bethlehem,PA. I get back to this area a few times a year. It is nice to have a good place to ride like this Park. I rode these trails for the first time during Thanksgiving break. I have to say riding it in snow and rain made it interesting. I rode the trail that runs along the Golf course side. I started with the trail that runs behind the third shelter (Westmont side). It was fun and would recommend doing the whole length. I am looking forward to going back and stating at the other end.

Pretty technical single track. My favorite trail is Tall Timber. It runs from behind "the shack" (as one called it) the whole way to the other end of the park. I enjoy taking the entire trail. It is single track and cuts the side of the mountain, so be careful not to fall down the hill.:p To get to it from the beginning: If your looking at the shack,(Directions to that above)and your on the same side of the stream as the shack, make a 90 degree left hand turn. Go strait, you will see a little bridge. Dont cross it, stay on this side of the stream and keep going forward. The Trail will split and one will go up and one will keep going foward (opposite direction of the way the stream flows) you can take either. The one that keeps going foward will just go up like the other one. Once you are at the top of either one go right. Now you will be riding parallel to the stream but you wont be able to see it for it is now far below. Ride this trail for a good bit. You will go down a hill with a tiny single track in the middle and grass on the sides. This should go past a split in the trail where you can go down. Dont take it or your gonna miss the majority of the trail. Follow the trail, Youll have to carry your bike over 3 (maybe 4) fallen trees. youll have to duck and weave threw the huge branches to get threw them. Eventually youll come to a split. The trail will split into caddy trail (going up) and Tall timber which goes down an extremly fun down hill (steep so be carfule and take it slow the first time). When you hit the bottom you will see a bridge. If you go across you will be on the main gravel road. Dont go across and take the trail that goes right before you cross the bridge. This will lead you back up towards the Shack on a mostly grass double wide trail. There are also trails on both sides of the stream, and ones farther down than when we turned left to go down the downhill. Once you hit the bottom of the downhill, if you still want to ride go left instead of right infront of the little bridge.

Customer Service

I like to start at the Corner of Hester, and Drexle. Being that I live on Hester. There is a little north short bridge over a fallen tree if you go this way. This way will take you across the brige by the shack. If you go this way then make a left when you cross the bridge and you will be where my review summary starts.

Spiffy trails. Some of the most fun stuff in the Johnstown area. All singletrack except for the gravel road that goes through it, not flat at all. Pretty technical with all the rocks and weaving through the trees. The only downside is that bikes aren't allowed off the gravel road, buuuuuut you know there are very few people back there most of the time so just watch out for the fat caretaker. He'll tell you to leave, so go test your luck, have fun, don't hit any hikers.

Customer Service

Go down the trail behind the exercise place, gravel or the bumpy singletrack with the log steps. then find a trail and follow it around, then find another one, and follow that around, and so on and so forth.

Customer Service

Similar Products Used: the "power line strip mine" is an awsome i found the single trak and it was awsome it helped alot talking to the guy who wrote the review its awsome and so is the rest of the trails, he recomended a route to get to some spectacular down hills and views alot better than stack house and u don't have to be chased by a park ranger!
