Allegheny National Forest - Heart's Content XC Ski Trail Reviews

I rode the Tom's run 3.3 mile section of this trail. This trail is for the experienced mountain biker or for hiking with comfortable shoes. I was fortunate to have chosen my full suspension mountain bike for this ride. the Tom's run section is rocky, it is muddy in spots, has a lot of tree roots, and some hills to climb an decend. the trail is well marked and scenery is beautiful. there are many large boulders off of the trail that seem to be deposited by the glaciers. The next time I visit, I will bring just my old hiking shoes and a water bottle.
