The lush green forests of upstate Pennsylvania are vast, stretching for miles in each direction over gentle rolling hills. Chalk-full of waterfalls, ferns, and woodland creatures, the expansive forests are also home to hundreds of miles of breathtaking trails. While most cater to hiking and backpacking, many are also tailored for mountain biking. With so many fun areas to see, how does one choose where to start?
Starting in the heart of it all is your best bet: Pine Creek Outfitters. The family-owned shop provides guided mountain biking trips, rafting ventures, and a variety of other outdoor excursions in Tioga County with outings designed for everyone from new outdoor enthusiasts to seasoned adventurers.
If you’re in the market for a longer or more secluded trip, they also provide shuttle service for thru-hikers and river-goers. Need suggestions on a day hike, or a longer backpacking route? They have that covered too, and are happy to share the beta on all local trails, so much in fact that the owner, Jonathan Dillon, drew the trail map for the region.
