Knox Kane Rail Trail

Beautiful surroundings on the trail

July, 2020 by vicki1960

July 2020. I found this to be one of the most beautiful trails! Heavily wooded through an absolutely gorgeous forest.
Though just under 4 miles in length I enjoyed the short ride on this trail. Having been constructed in 2018-2019 the surface is crushed limestone in very good condition.
I was dropped off at the parking area in Mt. Jewett and biked into Kinzua Bridge Skywalk State Park.
This trail ends at the skywalk. Visitor center and restrooms at the skywalk.

Kinzua Bridge Skywalk

A must see!

July, 2020 by vicki1960

We generally travel over 2 hours annually to visit the Skywalk. Though only a few tenths in length, there is an awesome visitors center with plenty of picnic area.
You can hike down to the bottom of the gorge. Make sure you have sturdy shoes.
New visitor center constructed approx 2018. Informational signs throughout the skywalk, visitors center and grounds.

Kinzua Valley Trail

Really enjoyed this trail. Very scenic grade not to hilly. Was awesome we could see all the places that the turtles had been digging to lay eggs. Trail was very busy this Father’s Day.

Started at west creek trailhead down hill for the first 6 miles. Made for a long 6 miles on the way back. All and all nice trail, scenery not the greatest.

Allegheny National Forest - Twin Lakes Trail

Great Trail with lots of potential!

December, 2019 by srhayduk

I've hiked the entire trail from end to end. It's not an easy hike. The trail has been neglected for years, but has recently been adopted by a few locals who are working hard to get it back in shape. There are areas on the west end that have been rerouted due to beaver dams flooding the area. Follow the diamonds and look for orange ribbons to guide you. There are areas of heavy blow-down which have been cleaned up, but you'll find yourself climbing and ducking a bit. There's a camp site at the top of the hill that overlooks the valley below and another at Coon Run. Both are great for camping overnight or just a day stop. Most of the trail on the east end has been marked for night hiking as well. During winter months the TL Rec area is closed so you won't be able to park at the campground. You can park at Seven Mile Road, hike 2 miles east to the Twin Lakes Campground and walk around the lake (it's beautiful at night, bring a headlamp). Or you can travel west from this parking spot and continue onto the remaining 14+ miles of trail. There is another parking spot along Route 66 just south of James City (on the left). And a few others along forest roads 152 and 133. There are plenty of natural springs along the trail, keep your eyes open for these, as they are not yet marked with signs. I suggest hiking smaller sections of this trail (out and back) if you have never hiked it. But it would make a great 2-day backpacking trip too! Park one vehicle at Twin Lakes Rec Area (during open season) get dropped off along FR 133 at the NCT trailhead. You'll be hiking almost 19 miles from start to finish, including the two connecting trails on each end.

Knox Kane Rail Trail

An excellent addition to the Rail Trail world

November, 2019 by djayfrank

We walked a bit more than half the trail from Kinzua Bridge today and it's one of the best designed and maintained we've encountered. We plan to go back to hike from the Mount Jewett end tomorrow to finish the whole length. We'll be adding it to our list of Rails-to-Trails donations each year going forward.

As a bonus, as we were hiking in the woods along the trail, a train travelled the current rails, not far off. I love having an actual train running nearby when I'm hiking rail trails, so a great day after Thanksgiving hike.

West Creek Recreational Trail

early winter trail running

November, 2019 by fdodeller

Ran the first few miles at dusk down from St Marys starting point after early winter snow flurries. Great ambiance as snow dampered sounds.
First half mile definitely wet (water up to the ankle at times) until one reached the better maintained section.
Very gentle slope uphill on the way back did not penalize speed.
