Any good trails with downhill sections? I included a YouTube link of what I mean

So I moved to Pittsburgh pretty recently but so far I haven’t found trails I really like. Back home in Alaska right near my house was a ski area attached to a ton of trails. You could ride back there for hours.

I realize Pittsburgh is not AK but I have been hoping to find something kinda similar since Pittsburgh is so hilly.

Here is one of my favorite areas to ride back home:

Is there anything like that in the pittsburgh area?

Thanks

Welcome to Pittsburgh! Like the bear bell, which you won’t need here, but might still be a good idea as I suspect our trails are more crowded.  I believe there is an active trail riding group, but don’t know anyone in it or have contact info.  Call any local shop and I suspect they can help you with contacts.

Not trail related, but Bicycle Heaven is open.  Go.

I went to Bicycle Heaven and asked about trails and they basically pushed me out of the store “We just fix bikes we don’t ride trails” is a pretty much an exact quote.

Looks like Pittsburgh Off-Road Cyclists has a Facebook page. I think they’re the main group around here for mountain biking.

Your video is very similar to the Dr. J Trail in North Park:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwluwZJqLuc

The top/start of it is across the street from the entrance to North Park’s pool.  Here’s some detail:
