Tussey Mountain Trail is one of the best and well know trails in Rothrock. It offers great views and great ridge riding. A must do trail. Known to the locals as the Ridge.

You can ride it as an out and back starting from Bear Meadows Rd off Kettle Trail or from Bear Meadows Road. Ride past the Beer tap it loops back to the tap - Beer Tap Loop. Or you can continue down The Tussey Mountain Extension Trail for more singletrack bliss.
