“A convenient connector to Link Trail from Sand Mountain Rd”— David Celento
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
The preferred route to the tasty singletrack of Link Trail is the lower dual-sport trail, leading from the parking lot. If you want to skip the climb up Sand Mountain Road, this is a great place to park to explore the trails on the southern side of Bald Eagle Mountain. A nice route is from the Parking Lot > Link Trail (nice!) > Faust Valley Trail > Old Peat Bog Loop -- especially the upper section leading to Wildcat, which is also a grin inducing trail at the ridge.
Worth noting is that The Raven 2013, had special permission from PA DCNR to utilize an unauthorized section at the very top, from Sand Mountain Road. This upper section is NOT an approved trail and DCNR will be displeased if you use this upper section!
