Mountain Biking — Seneca Creek
DescriptionSeneca Creek/Spruce Knob offers a diverse backcountry to explore. Nearly 60 miles of trails wind through 19,600 acres of red spruce stands, open meadows and fast-flowing mountain streams. Although some trails are old rail grades, much of this area is hard core single track. There are also gravel mountain roads that help create great loops. Trail Map (4.2MB pdf)
