COMBO Fall Riding Trip


  • State College, PA (map)

Once again COMBO will be taking its annual trip to Rothrock State Forest near State College, PA. Expect to be challenged and rewarded on these IMBA Epic trails (Tussey Mountain and Coopers Gap).  The trails are natural terrain and pure XC/AM riding.  There are no drops or man-made structures on these trails but there is plenty of natural rock (not chunks of concrete or pavers like at Alum).  There is not a ton of climbing (say less than a lap at Mohican) but climbs are typically rocky and a couple are steep.  

Here are a few videos of Rothrock from the Transylvania Epic Stage Race at Rothrock.


Wildcat Gap on Tussey Mountain (not a trail we normally ride but gives you a sense of the terrain)
