TRAIL RATINGS FOR SEVEN SPRINGS
NUMBER/TYPE OF DIFFERENT TRAILS: A good range of rock crawlers, ramp parks, and smooth slopestyle.
OBASTACLES / FEATURES: There’s gotta be more than 20 man-made dirt and wooden obstacles. Drops, whale tails, very tech rock gardens, ladder berms, table tops big through small, hips big through small and even a some ramps for a large step-up you can get six or more feet of air on. They also have several good-sized tabletops some 10 feet long allowing some decent air and a big one that allows for more. Most of this is intermediate yet not so lame that somebody who's good at riding would get bored. Also the left side of the mountain it's got plenty of good rock gardens and straight up rock crawling.
HARDEST TRAIL DIFFICULTY: 7 or 8 / 10
SLOPE ANGLES: moderate
TRAILWIDTH / SURFACE: Trail surface: the smoothest I've seen at a downhill bike park. I rode here on a Hardtail for an entire year and felt fine. Unlike most parks you hear "lots of rocks” you think loose rocks everywhere. That is not the way it is here. All the trails are smooth until you get to rocky areas. Though the trails are some of the smoothest. They also have the most technical rock gardens around too. At some points its boulders everywhere. After the gardens the trail smooths out again right away. Trail width is wide enough to pass most the way. Nowhere is the trail less than 15 inches wide.
LIFT # / STYLE: A quad chair and a single chair, but you have to hold your bike there are no racks of any sort. They're smooth and fast too.
MAINTENANCE CREW: 10/10. Every day I have been here I see many workers raking the trails and taking care of them. They put a lot of effort into keeping the trails well-maintained and it shows.
RENTALS : Norco ( my favorite) and some other good ones I can't think of. They’ve got a lot of top notch bikes there though.
SHOP: They only have the essentials back in the shop such as tubes brake pads and chains but the kids that work it are very nice and generous. They also have some safety gear for sale. They do have a general resort give shop open up in the hotel though.
RESORT: king-est. The hotel is enormous and 4 1/2 star or five in my opinion. There's a wonderful giant pool with a bar right next to it where there is always a little band playing. The restaurants always open. I don't know if you're supposed to be paying to get in there but every time I go there nobody ever even came close to asking me. It seems like this is where well-to-do families from Pittsburgh come for summer vacation. They are all beautiful middle-aged people everywhere. I always shower down in the very nice shower near the pool, grab one of their towels and then go hang out by the pool and check out all the mommies and make friends whilst sipping a white Russian.
RESORT ACTIVITIES: They have a lot going on. You could spend the weekend here. They have a smaller concrete ground-only mountain coaster. They also usually have a giant slingshot/trampoline ride set up in the adventure area for kids. And it seems like they have a band there almost every weekend. Over on the other hill they have mountain slides: giant sheets of plastic down one of the smaller ski slopes and let kids ride down in. I haven't tried it but it looks fun as hell. It's big enough for adults its at like a 45 degree angle for almost a hundred yards. Like way big for a slide- the biggest slide ever.
SHOWERS CLOSE-BY?: Yes, good ones, right near a pool. Towels provided.
INTERESTING NOTE: of all the different parks within 300 miles of Erie PA, this one is the most worth it/my favorite one to go to by far and the resort makes it a family weekender.
