The Dr J Freeride Trail is an advanced trail for intermediate level freeride enthusiasts.

Jamie Pfaeffle

Overview

Do not ride when wet! Trail closed December to April.

Description

The trail is fast and flowy with elevated wooden bridges, drop-off features, jumps, banked turns, a rock garden and skinny wooden bridge features. There is a return trail which you walk up, turn right and walk up a fire road to get back to the top of the trail.

The Dr J Trail is part of the North Park Freeride Area. NPFR is a unique outdoor freeride and skills area. NPFR consists of the Dr J Freeride Trail and the Freeride Skills Park.

The NPFR Area is located next to Sharon Shelter (Pie Traynor Field Area), near North Park Pool.

The Freeride Trail and the Skills Park are closed from Decemeber until April or May to repair Spring thaw damage and permit mud to dry out. Please do not ride the NPFR during these months it causes damage to the muddy features. Check the PTAG website and our Facbook group in the Spring for opening date information. We also post workday information to the PTAG website and our Facbook group, Pittsburgh Freeride.

Dry - Pretty good going down. A little dry but could use some shaping of a few of the jumps and landings
