Rocky Gap ATV Trail


Area Status: Open
Rocky Gap all terrain vehicle tral

This 23.1 mile trail is divided into two loops by State Road 3005/Pleasent Drive. Due to steep side slopes, the ATV rider may experience difficulty in some sections. The southern loop is 10.8 miles and rated more difficult. The northern loop is 11.1 miles and is rated most difficult.

Both trails are one-way travel except where otherwise posted.

During the winter season this dual-use trail provides snowmobile access from the northwest to the Allegheny Snowmobile Loop system.
