A very nice 11 mile portion of this well paved trail. Added bonus is passing by Brandywine Falls. Will definitely be back!
After a sporadic winter hiatus; it is good to be back on the trail on a more regular basis.
Absolutely beautiful any time of year.
Late in October, my brother and myself rode the trail starting from the Franklin trail head thru the Kennerdell tunnel. The trip was around 15 plus miles (30+ total). The trailhead at Franklin is where the Samuel Justus Trail begins as well from its southern point. The Allegheny River was next to us for the entire trip and the scenery was beautiful. With the Fall colors, picture taking was an often occurrence. Shortly into the trip, an information board will tell the story of the assassin John Wilkes Booth as an Oil Man. 5 miles into the ride, the Belmar 'trestle' Bridge will appear. The bridge is over 1300 feet in length and is a part of the Sandy Creek Trail. There are some steps you can walk your bike up to get to it. Would encourage to do this as it is amazing to cross the bridge and see the view of the river and the area. The next item of interest was the Indian God Rock. A rock with Indian carvings that was used as a landmark for the earlier steamboats. We were cautioned to avoid getting close to it as the area around it is slick. Our end point for the trip was the Kennerdell Tunnel. It is 3350 feet in length and was constructed in the time range of 1913-1915. You definitely need a light to ride thru it, and like the Belmar Bridge, is something special to check out. Our ride was mostly on asphalt; however a few miles before the tunnel there was about a 3/4 mile section where you will ride on gravel as the trail was re-routed. The entire trip was enjoyable as there was plenty to see.
This 2 mile trail has nice flat areas, a few hills, and several bridges that cross over Hemlock Creek, and even the Cuyahoga River! It is definitely great exercise, and such beautiful scenery.
Early November we parked in Emlenton, mile marker 97 and biked to Sunnyslope at mile marker 110. We went through the two tunnels, Rockland and Kennerdell. Bring a light! Round trip and ride this day was 27 miles.
Hadn't ridden the panhandle in about 5 yrs. It is in much better condition than it was last time. WV has what looks to be very new blacktop. Good trail, without heavy traffic.
I haven't been on this trail in about 5 yrs. It is much improved since then. WV now has pavement . Not all the way but within a few miles of Weirton.PA/ Allegheny County still gravel but in nice condition.
We rode three miles south of 87 until we came to a detour, then backtracked and went two miles north of 87. The trail is wide enough for two trikes side-by-side, and the part we rode is mostly smooth with very little slope. The marsh just south of Dunkerton Rd is a nice stop.
Though the trail map shows restrooms at the trailheads, there wasn't one at the Lockwood parking lot (at 87). Other bikers said there are none anywhere.
We parked in Lisbon at mile 0 and biked up to Leetonia, mile 10. Once in Leetonia follow the signs through town and re-connect the trail which runs into Washingtonville at mile 12.5. A nice warm Fall day to enjoy the pretty leaves.
Nicely updated trail! The former section of cinder and dirt has been grated and paved. Total length is now 3.2 miles. We parked at the Spillway and fed the fish. Trail goes 2.2 miles North into Linesville, passing the fish hatchery. The new bridge over a creek has been installed. After the ride on the new section, we traveled South 1 mile to Fries Road. That section pavement is only a year old. Nice trail within Pymatuning state park.
I have passed by the trailhead riding the Towpath a number of times, always meaning to check it out. I finally did this October. It was a beautiful autumn day: crisp cool air, bright blue sky, the fall colors a little past their peak but still hanging on. The trail crosses the Cuyahoga on a new hiker-biker bridge. Shortly afterwards its starts its climb up out of the valley. Don't let the 7-8-9-11% grade signs intimidate you. They are short and don't feel that steep. The path seems like its built over the abandoned section of Hemlock Road and you cross over an old stone bridge. Another new hiker-biker bridge crosses over the Hemlock Creek dam (Hemlock Falls) and heads uphill through a lovely stretch of woods. You pop out at the top at the trail parking at the rear of the Cleveland Clinic Admin building. The path continues a short ways to Brecksville Road. It crosses over to Selig Rd and continues as a wide sidewalk for the last few tenths of a mile to the Independence Civic Center. The downhill run is fun!
A very pleasant side trip through a beautiful little gorge. Nice to get a little hill workout in. Highly recommend taking this sidetrip.
