While names like the Neversink Mountain, the Schuylkill River, Gravity Trail, and the Witches Hat might take some getting used to, their views and amenities won’t.

Reading is an IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association) Bronze-Level Ride Center – a coveted designation for our destination-worthy mountain bike trails, and the only such center in the Northeast. Beyond the IMBA designation, we’re also a cycling destination. The annual Reading Radsport Festival includes races for kids as well as amateurs, and ends with a thrilling professional cyclist showdown with tons of spectator heckling to add to the hype!

You’ll find unspoiled terrain in our area, where you can feel free of development or traffic. Find friends to share a hike with or join a meet-up group. Have a furry hiking companion? Take them on many of our dog-friendly trails! When you hit your first trail, you’ll be hooked. Luckily, there are over a hundred miles of trails for you to explore!
