Description

Allegheny is at the far southern end of the Raystown trail network. It has a real backcountry feel with climbs, descents throughout thick forest. You'll feel like you're in a jungle at times as the lush vegetation closes in around you.

From the intersection with Dirt Surfer and Shade, Allegheny has a steep-ish but short climb before a fast and enjoyable descent to a road crossing. From there the downhill continues as it contours around steep hillsides. If you take a moment to check out the hillside below, you might notice how high up you are. At some points you'll feel like you're riding through the tree canopy.

There's one punchy climb and short descent before reaching the far end of Allegheny where it meets a junction with Dirt Surfer and Barrel Bay. Stay left for a shorter connection back to Shade or stay right for a longer ride on Barrel Bay.
