Hiking, Biking and More
Huntingdon County literally has thousands of miles of trails, and we’re not just talking about hiking trails!  Exploring the Raystown Lake Region by trail can be accomplished in a multitude of ways: day hiking, trail-running, or backpacking on foot; horseback riding; two-wheeling aboard your road bicycle, mountain bike, or motorcycle, paddling your canoe or kayak, riding shotgun in your convertible, strapping on your snowshoes or cross country skis, hopping on your snowmobile, and more.

The Allegrippis Trails are more than 30 miles of stacked-loop trails for use by mountain bikers, hikers, and cross-country skiers.  The Standing Stone Trail (SST) winds over and through some of Pennsylvania's most scenic terrain; and is a part of the rapidly evolving Great Eastern Trail system (GET), which will be a trail system running from New York to Florida. The Mid-State Trail (MST) and Terrace Mountain Trail (TMT) are other long distance or day hike trail destinations that run through Huntingdon County.
