TRAILS AT JAKES ROCKS NARRATIVE-
The Trails at Jakes Rocks mountain bike system continues to grow in size and popularity drawing in excess of 24,000 users in 2022!
The total trail mileage, as of fall 2022, stands at 35.1 with roughly 11 miles of tread remaining to be constructed from the original system design and environmental permitting. We continue to seek funding to complete these miles, all of which run between Route 59 or Longhouse Scenic Drive and the Allegheny Reservoir.
The generous donations received through this amazing effort are utilized by the Warren County Development Association (WCDA) in collaboration with the Northern Allegheny Mountain Bike Association (NAMBA) to ensure the trails are properly maintained and kept open and safe for all to enjoy. While the labor required is “free” thanks to a group of dedicated volunteers, there is a significant cost involved in providing those volunteers proper tools and equipment needed as well as materials required to make repairs to bridging throughout the system. Funds are also used to place trail enhancements such as benches placed in key locations within the system for rider and hiker use and enjoyment.
Your generous support of our efforts to maintain and grow this amazing resource is greatly appreciated and will be put to good use in supporting the trail maintenance efforts. We thank you for your consideration.
We sincerely thank you for your support.
