Hits some of the Galbraith Gap highlights. Easy warm up for a few minutes up Laurel Run road before meeting the rock garden in front of 3 bridges, don't worry the whole trail is not like this. Then follow Lonberger up which will raise the heart rate near the end before the slow climb up North Meadows Rd, take a breather vista overlooking Bear Meadows. A right at the top across the flat portion of Gettis Ridge, left after the gate and a short pedal down the road to Croyle. Turn in on Croyle NMBA & DCNR worked together to enhance and make this more fun and sustainable in the long run, a short gentle up and then the long downhill blast. At the bottom, left on Beidlehiemer Rd until left again up Gettis Ridge Rd for about 1 mile and the right on Wampler. Follow this out past the Wampler vista and the left up Bear Meadows Rd (only 0.7 mile) before cresting and descending down past the monument at the Bear Meadows bog. Keep going straight and then turn right onto the start of Tussey Mountain trail, opposite the parking area. This will involve a short technical climb then a rocky technical descent, straight across Kettle trail and up and onward. Again the rock gardens are short lived and you soon be on the ridge line. Follow this out, across the gas line to the infamous beer tap, turn left down Dylan's Path (sign say Camp) out and across the gas line again then all the way down. Make sure you make the hard right at the bottom where it meets the dirt road, then follow corner rd out to the tarred part of Bear Meadows Rd, right on Bear Meadows back to the lot
