Mountain Biking Belmont Plateau
#36 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
Awesome trail in the vicinity of Philadelphia, its about 1.5 miles from the Art Museum and makes
for a great after work ride. Its easy to get lost there so, especially in summer so its good to with
someone who knows it, but there are a few main gravel roads that the trails dump out on so you
can always take them back. Entrance is on the east side of the park. The trail winds through west
fairmont park. There are a ton of log crossings, some stream crossings, tight and twisty single
track, with quick up hills and descents. I ride SS there and the park seems made for it. Lots of
trail back there, there is no set route but there are many different loops you can devise to
customize your ride. Please be ethical by not riding here after the rain because locals have put a
lot of work into maintaining the trails.
