Barrel Bay is another long run of singletrack on the south end of the Raystown trail network. It connects the far end of Allegheny with Dark Hollow.

Similar to Allegheny, Barrel Bay has tight singletrack through the forest. The vegetation isn't quite as lush but the trail is just as fun. It starts with a quick descent followed by a short, steep climb. From there it's an more than enjoyable cruise back towards Seven Points Rd.

Keep your eyes peeled about 0.6 miles into the route - great views are available to your right as you pass through a break in the forest.
