 Raystown Lake, Pa

first let me state that Raystown is not at all technical you could take a first time here and they will have fun. At the same time though there is no place else you can cruise at 15 to 25 mph on singletrack in western Pa for 40 miles of riding. This why its fun if your a good rider. Its the anti Pa riding in many ways. The trails are like a pumps track/easy 4x track for every minute of riding here. There is some stiff climbs but you feel like you actually descend more than you go up. Its an all downhill trail!! In some of the shorter uphills you can actually pump your way up with out pedaling. then just keep pumping on the back side. 

here is a map


the route we rode was Stony Trail/Buck/Sleek Dog/Eagle/Hydro Loop/Osprey/Sidewinder/South side of Ray Revenge/Berry Patch/Loc a Motion/ west on Red Legs/East on Alliegrippis/Rays Revenge/Berry Patch/Loc a Motion/North on Redlegs Trails/West on Alliegrippis/Buck/Stony Trail/Car

We did not ride anything south of 7 points road nor did we ride fawn/switchback/ and large sections of osprey and Berry Patch. I can say though that what we rode flowed very well and you never felt like you were fighting the trail. Most of the trails felt as if they would ride just as well the other way.

The trail head


Techiest section there is near the start of Stony Trail, its not really techy at all though


The endless flow though pine trees on Osprey. There are some quite good views of the lake as well. didnt get any of those more on that later.


me enjoying the grip and wide openness



The trails is wide open buff twisty and flowly Its like heaven really


Kent railing it



Its then proceeds to pour on us, we kept riding. the trails only got better. they were to dry. The heavy 30 min downpour made the trails tacky bet still kept the trail quite hard. This place could be ridden in a heavy rain storm with out damaging the trail. 

the trail literally dried out in 30 minutes


there are tons of these along Berry Patch and Ray Revenge yummmmm


cautions dips = lots of fun


Kent on Allie 



Me on the pump track like section on Alliegrippis, this section starts and end way out of sight ofthe camera and there are 100s of sections like this along the entire trail.



get yourself here. These are some of the best flowly XC trails in the nation. you could ride here a couple days and not get bored.

 


Bushwackers attitude = Suck......
This is what you can do simply by highlighting the other TR and copying it, then click paste here. 
The only thing that didn't translate was the vimeo video, which I easily fixed in a few seconds. 

I'll say, its a nice trip report!

the pictures automatically get paste with out having to go  though each one? if they do why dont you right up a how to copy and pasting entire TRs. I know how to post pics but doing each one after you already have a TR written is a pain in butt. Especially when you want to go riding the next day as well.

 There was a tutorial posted early in the switch to Huddler, on how simple it was to copy and past stuff like this.  I'm not sure where, and I don't have time to look for it, but I recall seeing it and thinking,......sweet, this is easy!

my search on here turned up nothing which isnt surprising at all.

BWPA, 

Looks like a good area to ride.  Nice trip report!  Been riding my road bike all summer so far.  Just got my mtn bike off the hangers yesterday for a once over. Hopefully hit the trail tomorrow if the weather holds after my con-calls are done.

I did a simple (vs Advanced) search for "insert image" and got one Wiki: EpicSki Image And Video Tutorial

Also I found this path to it as well (from the bottom of each page):
FAQ--->Using EpicSki--->Do you have tutorials on using the site?--->Image and Video Tutorial

Hope that helps!

Best, 

Chris

thanks for the props but you and TC dont get it. I know how to post photos I do not know how to copy and paste a TR that works on TGR, MTBR, Dcski.com, Porcmtbclub.org, spokejunkies.com without going though and copying each photos URL and putting them into each screen on huddler.

this is what the line llooks like on TGR or any other site but epic

the problem is that line doesnt work on here because of the dumbness of huddler. I know how to post pics like this right here.



but its fing annoying to have to go though each pic and copy and paste again after you have already written a TR that works on EVERY other website but this one. Untill you guys fix it I will continue to post links because the extra 15 minutes of reediting just for this site is quite frankly not worth my time. I am not the only one with this problem I am just the only one to come out and call out how bad huddler is in this instance.

Being different in this case isnt cool. NO more TR from me directly on this site, and go figure you guys usually got first look due to how easy TRs were to post here before....

Yeah, actually I did get that!  

That is why I posted the link to the Image and Video tutorial.  In the tutorial there is a section specifically addressing how to cut and paste images from another site:  

Quote:
 

Embed Images From Another Site Using Cut And Paste

  1. On any website, open the page with the image of your choice.  Highlight the image.  In some browsers, you will need to start with the cursor outside of the image and then drag it over the image to select the image.

  2. Use your keyboard Copy function (Ctrl+C on PC computers, Cmd-C or Apple-C on a Mac) to copy the image.
  3. In an open forum thread reply box or Wiki article, place your cursor within the text box.  Use your keyboard Paste function (Ctrl+V on PC computers, Cmd-V or Apple-V on a Mac) to paste the image into the window.

So instead of bringing the code from the another site, after you post there, highlight the completed post and copy it, then paste it here to bring the text and images.  Seems there's a tweak required for the vimeo from what I gather above, but I've not worked with that before.

Best,

Chris

 What Cgeib said is true, and Yes, Josh, I really enjoyed your TR, as I always do, but posting it here is as simple as highlight, copy, paste, the thread itself, not the coded content.

How I copied your TR above, is, I went to TGR, highlighted your TR, clicked on copy then came here and pasted it.  I clicked on advanced reply to see if all content transfered, which is when I realized that the only thing that didn't transfer was the vimeo, which I easily changed to work. 

Simpler, not harder, trust me.
