Long Mountain Trail is a remote connector trail that can be used to connect the Tussey side trails with the Coopers gap trails. There are some steep sections near Thickhead that are a challenging climb. The middle section is nice single and doubletrack. The bottom end has a few wet areas that are always wet.

Access Info

Off Thickhead Mountain Rd for the upper section and from Stone Creek Rd for the lower point
