O&W Trail - PA

Poyntelle to Preston Park

June, 2017 by sluberoff

I biked a short stretch of the trail between Poyntelle and Preston Park with my hybrid bike and it actually wasn't that bad, although I did have to keep my eyes on the trail at all times to avoid scattered large rocks. Most of this section is open to ATVs (and snowmobiles in winter) although I didn't encounter any during my ride. Definitely not for road bikes or those expecting a perfectly smooth surface. There was a steepish hill south of Preston Park with many large rocks which those with less robust bikes might want to walk their bikes over (though mountain bikers might enjoy it). Mostly a "green tunnel," but some views between the trees in spots.

As a separate matter, note that the first two miles north from Simpson are closed until October or November of 2017 for installation of a gas pipeline.

D&H Rail Trail

Partial trail closure in 2017

June, 2017 by sluberoff

Please note that the trail is closed between Simpson and Union Dale from May 2017 until October or November 2017 for installation of a natural gas pipeline.

D&H Rail Trail

Grinding Gravel

June, 2017 by lawn.czar

Am visiting NEPA And happened upon this trail while riding the local gravel roads on my cyclocross bike. Had a ton of fun riding from Burnhill and Tower Hill Roads up to Thompson. Surface was a mix of packed dirt, grass, loose cinder, and gravel ranging from "kitty litter" up to golf ball-sized rocks. I was running 35c semi-slick gravel tires (Clement USH) at 55psi and it was totally doable. A better tire choice might have been something like a 40c Clement MSO at 40-45psi, but I had fun regardless. I'm going to bring tires like that the next time I'm in the area and ride the full trail.

It seems like a few folk commenting here expected the trail to be a flat, smooth path and were angry that it ain't that. I'd put it half way between that and a true MTB trail; someone expecting a tough, technical MTB trail would be disappointed as well. But if you're looking for something chill for your MTB or want to add a fun section to a gravel ride, get in there.

D&H Rail Trail

Solitude but challenging

June, 2017 by bike10

Entered the trail at Union Dale and went north about 8 miles then back. Did not see a soul, only a turtle who may have been a little faster than me! The trial itself had great signage, but the 'parking lot' was an area behind the café (closed Wednesday's) and I asked someone if this was the trail lot. Very rough trail as others described. More like a washed out single track than a rail trail. I know it must be a lot of work for volunteer's to maintain and I am not complaining, just want others to know they may not want to bring little kids or anybody who is not up for a little bit more of a challenge!

Black Diamond Trail

Best trail around

June, 2017 by gardeningnagel18

We checked out this trail today along with the water front trail and logged 22 miles. Has to be the best trail around N.Y. Extremely well maintained and very scenic. Can't wait to ride this trail again this fall, will be beautiful.





Lackawanna River Heritage Trail

What trail?

June, 2017 by jimblackjim

Tried to access the trail via Enterprise Drive in Simpson today heading north. The trail was a mess and there were signs saying Danger - Herbicides in use. It was not clear if/where sections were closed. Finally we gave up. Driving a mile or so north, there was another sign saying the trail was closed due to the construction of a pipeline.

It is hard to tell what is going on. I did not try going south, but that section looked closed also.

I would avoid this section unless you can confirm something is changed.

D&H Rail Trail

Beautifully Scenic, horribly maintained

June, 2017 by gardeningnagel18

We set out on a bicycling adventure on a perfect day. We were unable to locate the trailhead in NY as there wasn't a single marker or sign for it. So we continued on to Lanesboro and found the trailhead parking. The trail was extremely scenic, the sun was shining, the breeze was strong,unfortunately the trail conditions were about 90% horrible....too much cinder had our mountain bikes fishtailing, and if it wasn't that it was the size of the stone they used in most places that were far too big for trail bikes to travel safely over (Yes, I did end up going down). We actually had to walk our bikes through a few really rough spots, I believe were caused by the excessive rains we have been having. That is understandable, but we were so frustrated with with the conditions that we turned around at 6.35 miles. The trail was so beatiful, yet terribly maintained with little to no signage. I would love to ride this trail, but the conditions are prohibitive. We did meet people on atvs and even a dirt bike. They were respectful, but I don't believe they were supposed to be there. I would not recommend this trail for anyone who is looking for a relaxing enjoyable ride, I was totally stressed out from the conditions. We are going to give the other end of the trail a try, maybe the southern end is better maintained.

You can now ride from Cass Park in Ithaca to Taughannock State park or vice / versa. My recent ride on a recumbent trike was awesome!! Great surface for ALL types of bikes / trikes, beautiful scenery -- A five star trail!!!!

Black Diamond Trail

Fantastic trail

April, 2017 by katherine.lockwood444

This is a great trail for walking or cycling. The grade is gentle, and the stone-dust surface is excellent.

Reviews from prior to the opening of the trail in Fall, 2016 should be ignored, as they reflect the undeveloped condition of the trail.
