      Blue Knob State Park trails have it all: lung busting climbs, big rock gardens, swooping singletrack, and ear-to-ear-smile downhills. You can put together everything from short beginner to intermediate rides to epic 30+ mile advanced loops.

      Since 2000 LHORBA members have over 1600 volunteer hours at Blue Knob State Park. Every spring, club members clear winter tree fall and brush from over 30 miles of trails. We have also built new sections of Crist Ridge, Chappell Fields, Mountain View Connector, and Rock N Ridge trails including re-establishing trails after the damage from Hurricane Ivan.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country

      Access Info:
      From Rt. 869 in Pavia, PA turn at the big brown “Blue Knob State Park” sign. Pass the ranger station on your right and the swimming pool on your left. After the Mowery Hollow sign make a right on the gravel road. There will be an outhouse on your right and Pavia Run Pavilion on your left. Park 9in this gravel lot for the advanced rides or for an intermediate ride with challenging climbs. If you want a beginner ride or an intermediate ride with less climbing, proceed up the park road past the Family Campground. Look for a trailhead on your right where Sawmill and Chappell Field Trail meet.
