      The Quemahoning Reservoir riding area currently consists of a single named trail with an overall loop length of 16 miles. It is broken up into multiple individual listings as “Que Trail – N,E,S,W”, generally split at short road sections. This base loop is generally easier terrain with short sections of more difficult trail. See individual trail segment descriptions for more detail.

      The trail system is multiuse, non-motorized/non-equestrian, purpose built for mountain biking but also suitable for hiking, trail running, snow shoeing, and xc skiing.

      The official map can be accessed at https://tinyurl.com/yyvsjjwn, or is available as a hard copy at local bike shops. The map conceptually shows an additional 12 miles of more advanced trails branching off of the initial loop. None of the future trails are open for riding or exploration until officially opened. Many of the roads surrounding the reservoir provide bailout opportunities for a smoother return to your car.

      The trail system is CLOSED during posted hunting seasons, generally 11/15 thru 12/31, except Sundays. Please respect these closures.

      The trail system can be accessed from numerous parking areas. Restrooms are available at the Que Family Recreation Area (QFRA) (flush) and Birdman Road boat launch (porta-john). Camping, swim beach, pavilions, and boat rental are available at the QFRA. A use fee applies at QFRA generally from Memorial Day to Labor Day. There is no charge at other access points.

      The trail system is being developed in cooperation with the Cambria Somerset Authority, which purchased this and other facilities from Bethlehem Steel Corporation (successor to Cambria Iron) in 2000 as an industrial water supply along with opening them to public recreation.

      The Que is one of the largest artificial bodies of water in Pennsylvania, and is known as a stopover for migratory waterfowl, including geese, swans, and herons.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
