Mountain Biking Trails


Calling all thrill seekers! Mountain biking adventure awaits you in Pennsylvania’s Americana Region, home to the Greater Reading Trails System. With over 125 miles of thrills and spills, cyclists can test and hone their skills on beginner-friendly to highly technical, rock-strewn rides. In 2015, under the care of the Berks Area Mountain Biking Association, our trails earned the International Mountain Biking Association’s Bronze Level Ride Center designation, making the GRTS the sole IMBA Ride Center in the northeastern US, and one of only 40 Ride Centers worldwide. 

Unlike other trails with this prestigious title, our trails connect to each other and local urban centers with in-town amenities. Bikers can easily hop off the trails to eat, relax, shop, explore, and find lodging. As our trails continue to improve, so do the experiences of adventure travelers who dare to ride the trails of Pennsylvania’s Americana Region. Come see for yourself.
