Other Names

Bald Eagle State Forest Dual Sport Motorcycle Trail, Snyder County, Union County, Mifflin County, Centre County, Jacks Mountain Trailhead, Sand Mountain Trailhead

Last Known StatusOpen

Open to street legal motorcycles only, this area offers about 90 miles of trails separated by sections of pavement. The trails are marked by purple blazes and can be steep, narrow and rocky in most sections, making this area geared for the advanced rider.

The trail system can be accessed by two trailheads - the Sand Mountain Staging area is located on the west side while the Jacks Mountain Staging is on the east side. The trails are seasonal and are open to motorized use the Friday before Memorial Day through last full weekend in September. Overnight parking is not permitted at the staging areas but camping can be found at Seven Mountains Campground or Poe Valley State Park.

Looking for a unique overnight experience? Then check out the Lost Dutchman Retreat, which is just a few minutes away from this trail system. The property features a one bedroom cottage and a four bedroom house. Reservations are required which can be made online.
