Dkeg and I shot up to the Rothrock State Forest to hit some high quality singletrack today.
Knowing that I want more of my DC/MD friends to make this trip I was cautious not to underestimate the drive or overhype the trails. Exactly 2 1/2 hours later we were met at the Tussey trailhead by the scent of pines, unseasonably cool temps, dry trails, and a couple local friends who were spinning the fireroads (as only a local would ever do).
The plan was to ride the Shingletown section of Rothrock. This area features some rocky terrain, fresh trails, beautiful vistas, and singlespeed-friendly climbs.
After the ride, we went into Boalsburg to grab a quick bit at Duffy's Tavern before the return trip home.
