I have been doing a lot of riding near logan. Its totally different out here. Just about any trail worth riding has a 2000ft climb. Its taken me half a season to adjust to the long continuous climbs. Almost all of the trails are multi use. So you have lots of variable conditions and loose pack.
Yesterday I did an epic 25 miler with 13 miles of climbing and a 9 mile single track down hill, I also got lost for 4 miles. I was going to say that I hadn't seen any really technical trails (by PA standards) but the one yesterday blew my mind. Most technical and scary downhill I have ever seen. 9 miles downhill. 7 of those amazingly fun buff fast and flowy single track. 2 Miles of steep gnarly loose pack rock gardens. Most with enough exposure to knock me out for at least a season, more'n likely permanently. The scariest section... A 2 ft drop on to 2 ft wide single track into a turn. Serious exposure to the right and in front. The landing, off camber lose pack and rocks in the landing into the turn. Oi!
I loved the ride and will do it again. I would have been all smiles yesterday, but I got injured 1 mile from the car when a bee stung me in the face and I crashed.
I have also been spending some time down in Park City Riding with Bushwacker. The trails there are much more heavily traveled and much more well maintained. Here are some photos from a few of my recent rides. 25 Mile Solo Epic

Green Canyon is the best single track 15 minutes from my house. Its 5 miles and 1500' from the base to the top. And 3.5 of those miles can be ridden on single track. Not technical at all, but fast flowy and fun. Also a good work out.
