Susquehanna River Walk & Timber Trail

City and country

February, 2017 by keithdingler

As described you might believe this trail is only a few miles near the city of Williamsport. It connects to many more miles of urban riding remaining almost entirely off roads. There are several connecting trails to the north, south and east. If you were to ride all of these connections in a single day you could find yourself riding upwards of 50 miles. I frequently ride this trial, to the north you pass several community parks, soccer club, farmers fields and wetlands where you often see wildlife, at the eastern connection you ride further along the north side of Susquehanna river passing boat launches, fisherman, kayakers, and other side trails at Canfield island, ending at Indian Park in Montoursville. The southern connection takes you the river through the community of Sout Williamsport and ends at the community park adjacent to the Little League International complex. A very extensive network of connecting urban trials with access to both nature and city scapes.

Swatara Rail-Trail

Beautiful trail but with problems

February, 2017 by merlinsolis

We decided to ride on Super Bowl Sunday and check out this trail. We started from the Lickdale trailhead. We had two issues right from the beginning. First the trail isn't marked and we went the wrong way about 3/4 of a mile into a KOA campground. Once we hit the right direction, we encountered very large limestone, with the bikes sliding all over the place. After a mile, we hit crushed stone, which was great, then an old abandoned paved road. We could have used 3 different tires on this trip. Then at the halfway point the trail allows horses. It was all chewed up, very bumpy and not so much fun dodging the horse petunias on the trail and bridges! This could be a great trail if it were finished properly and horses were restricted to one side of the trail, said leaving part of the path smooth. The trail has some beautiful scenery and there was ice on the creek. The scenery will bring us back but the state of PA should/must do better to make this trail safer and to facilitate maximum enjoyment and not just survival. I beginning. The trailhead map doesn't indicate the direction of the trail. We went right and in 3/4 of a mile ended up in a campground. Once we got squared away we had our second issue. The state of PA put down large limestone on the trail. It was very dan

Lehigh and New England Trail

Parking scam

February, 2017 by adka

At the trailhead there is a warning sign that you run the risk of having your car towed, This will happen even if you park on the side of the road. If your tires touch the crushed stone you are taking a great risk. Avoid parking at the trailhead or the trail itself; it is not that great anyway.

Bloomsburg Rail-Trail

The other half nobody goes on.

December, 2016 by matthew_guise

Once you hit the "end" of the trail, you'll come out by a bulk tire center. Cross the road, go through the parking lot, and head for the trees. You'll see another trail head. It's also 1.5 miles and so much nicer then the first half. When you're driving down the highway from buckhorn to light st. Look left you'll see the trail.

D & L Trail - Lehigh Canal North

Nice, but...

November, 2016 by randy101

I rode this trail several times, as stated by others the first two miles north of Weissport are nice. After that it turns into single track not really suited for hybrid with narrow tires. Gets really rough near the treatment plant. I can't wait for the bridge to be build to connect with JT.

Susquehanna Warrior Trail

Autumn splendor

October, 2016 by cindy.gerner.5

it was difficult to find the north parking area so we drove until we found what we thought looked like a secure area at Shickshinny community park. This is close to the 4 mile marker. We rode north and despite the grassy areas the trail is flat and the surface is compact enough to ride my hybrid bicycle on it. We did locate the north parking area near the end on the trail. The TrailLink said 10.8 miles it's actually 12. On our way back we encountered a group of hunters. 2 adults 2 chuildren. Firearms are prohibited but we still offered a friendly hello and the one adult was rude to us. When we arrived at our vehicle there are houses surrounding the park. A local yelled something rude at us there too. Locals didn't seem friendly but as we were loading our bicycles another cyclist passed and I asked him if he could answer a few questions. It seems the trail continued north but he told me it didn't. He also said it was wise to park in the main parking areas because there were known break in's around the area. The parking area close to Berwick looked really nice. Even though two of the locals were rude the other cyclist was very friendly and informative. I would still recommend this trail and would even return. Hopefully the next time the locals will be friendlier

Pine Creek Rail Trail

Awesome

October, 2016 by cindy.gerner.5

We rode this trail on 3 different days. Friday 10-14 we started at the northern end off 287 north of Wellsboro and rode to mile marker 10. The following day we parked at the Ansonia lot and had Pine Creek Outfitters pick up our vehicle and drop it off at our destination in Waterville. It was a great service and our truck was waiting for us when we got there. The 3rd day we parked at the southern area and rode the portion from Jersey Shore to Waterville access area. The area is so pretty and the leaves were just starting to peak. I really enjoyed this trailand the condition is fantastic. There are plenty of rest stops along the way and even quite a few general stores. Cedar Run has a really beautiful store. The only trouble we encountered was just south of Blackwell street traffic is directed onto the trail due to a road construction project. All the vehicles that passed us were very considerate. Kudos to everyone's effort to keep this trail in really good condition

D & L Trail - Lehigh Gorge State Park Trail

Great ride

October, 2016 by ecpaulmiller

My girlfriend and I rode from Glen Summit to Jim Thorpe, about 36 miles.While it is downhill, there is not much coasting to do, pedaling is required. The scenery is wonderful and the trail is in extremely good condition. It can get a little crowded, especially at scenic views but there is plenty of room. Unfortunately, a lot of people don't know trail etiquette. Jim Thorpe is a treat, a lovely historic little town. The only real cons were a couple of bathrooms along the way. The first smelled bad, the second, words cannot describe. Whoever is responsible: the State, the County, the Park Service, should be ashamed. There is no excuse for that anywhere.

J. Manley Robbins Trail, aka Robbins Trail

Long run

October, 2016 by guyerk

I needed a place to run while my dad was in the hospital. A doctor told me about this trail. I ran back and forth and made several loops to get my 15 miles in. It was beautiful at this time of year with the leaves changing. It's a very nice trail, great for walking and running. Many of the leaves had started falling though, and they were covering rocks, which meant one had to watch his or her footing closely. Overall, it was a beautiful place to get a run in! I also loved running over the bridge over the Susquehanna River!

Pine Creek Rail Trail

A nice place to spend riding the rail trail

October, 2016 by mikehood71

A really enjoyable trail with lots to see. I rode on the Pine Creek Trail for three days and found there is lots of scenery and picturesque places along the trail.The only problem is I was able to only find one snack / drink stop along the 40 trail miles that I covered in Blackwell PA next to the trail. Be prepared there are not many places to buy food and I only carry what I can fit in my pockets. Make sure you go see the Grand Canyon of PA also it is really nice especially with the fall colors.

Trolley Trail (PA)

Nice, short trail!

October, 2016 by jimblackjim

The parking lot and trail head is now open. The section north from there is very nice with a good packed gravel surface. The are nice information and mileage signs. Clearly this trail is being well maintained.

The section from the trail head south starts off with some very steep hills with a dirt surface. All but serious mountain bikers will have to walk the first 1/4 mile or so.

It would be great to see this trail extended.
