Huntingdon and Broad Top Rail Trail

Beautiful Variety of Scenery

September, 2020 by caseydec

A hidden gem of diversity and a lot of calmness in many areas. Our first ride on it was in Sept. Labor Day, sunny and 80’s. Looking forward to riding again this fall.

The surface of mostly loose stone dust took a little getting used to as not packed like most rail trails. Was not a fan of the 2 miles of packed bouncy gravel road with potholes, but was doable. Rode from Tatesville to Riddlesburg and back 21.4. Thankfully, small port-a-pot at each end.

We were on gravel bikes (lower tire pressure) which did great. Didn't see anyone for a long time and the ones we saw were on mountain bikes.

Nice to see kept up mowed sides and enjoyed going through the cutout rocks. Some areas had grass in the middle but was mowed. My group thought in areas it was not quite the level trail as described, but we figured the trail variety of surface and scenery made it seem that way. Will do again as it's a great well kept trail, but with a different perspective of what the trail surface actually is.

Heritage Rail Trail County Park

Great Ride

September, 2020 by david.deroian

It was a beautiful day so I decided to do some pedaling. I started near the New Freedom train station and headed north. After arriving in York, I discovered that once crossing a few streets, the trail continued so off I went. I rode to the trail's northern tetminus at Rudy Park. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy! I rode through the park and then decided to head back south. Upon arriving back at New Freedom, I decided to continue south. I rode to the southern terminus to a small parking lot south of Ashland road, turned around and headed back north to New Freedom. Beautiful ride.

Cumberland Valley Rail Trail

A perfect trail for an out and back

September, 2020 by robert.richter89

I rode the entire Cumberland Valley Rail Trail this Labor Day weekend. The trail is in perfect condition and is mostly finely crushed gravel with some paved sections. Despite it being a holiday weekend with beautiful weather the trail wasn't very busy.

I started in Shippensburg as you can park at the very beginning of the trail. The trail is mostly heavily shaded with short sections opening up to nice views of farmlands and rolling hills but no shade. Shippensburg, Oakville and Newville are nicely spaced apart giving good spots to rest.

The only negative part of the trail was the last 2.5 miles past the Newville trailhead. It offers no shade, the gravel seems a little deeper there making it the hardest part of the trail for me. I try to complete every trail I ride but you're not missing much if you either turn around at Newville or start there and head towards Shippensburg.

H & F Trolley Trail

Wonderful starter trail

September, 2020 by 36s7x5nqjp

Took my granddaughters to this trail today. One is younger and a new cyclist (training wheels off this past summer). The other a bit older but had not been biking in a while. Very smooth paved trail. Several small bridges to go over and waterways right off the trail. Nice landscaping done by several local businesses. A good amount of benches to take a break on. Glad we found this gem.

WV Route 9 Bike Path

Challenging but well-kept trail

August, 2020 by jwlald_tl

I love this route in part because I grew up in C.T. Hills on northwest end are a great workout. Trail is in excellent shape; no detours. Parking available at both ends. Wear sunscreen because there’s no shade, take plenty of water because there’s no fountains, and be conscious that there are no public toilets on the route.

Western Maryland Rail Trail

Flat & Paved

August, 2020 by jessica.m.rogers

One of my favorite places to bike. Pretty easy, flat path. A bike shop is conveniently located about half way (10mi marker) which came in handy when my husbands bike broke while riding. Looking forward to doing this again.

Cumberland Valley Rail Trail

Well maintained bike trail!

August, 2020 by robert.sholtis

Enjoyable bike trail. I'm a beginner - and I appreciated that it was flat. Bathrooms were well kept and parking was good. Gravel was loose but not dangerous in any way. A very enjoyable ride - as a beginner riding during a time when the trail was not crowded, I was able to ride about 15 mph.

Heritage Rail Trail County Park

All riders will enjoy this trail!

July, 2020 by tedreese_tl

Definitely recommend picking up the trail south of York College campus if you want to avoid vehicular traffic. Experienced riders will enjoy the changing scenery and a high quality trail that allows plenty of room to safely pass slower riders/pedestrians. New riders will appreciate the packed gravel and low- to no-grade. Trail heads and crossings are well-maintained. Found plenty of parking in the morning at Seven Valleys trailhead. Brillhart parking fills quickly, but has porta-johns. Due to covid, restrooms are closed at Hanover Junction, but they have porta-johns in the lot.

Great American Rail-Trail

Great ride today

July, 2020 by vlc9802

We rode this trail from Toulon to Princeville today. It was great! The path was very good. It is mostly shaded. Excellent. We stopped in Wyoming on our way back for lunch. Ate at 111 Coffee Shop. Don’t be fooled, this is NOT just a coffee shop. The lunch was delicious. And it is decorated all with bikes! Perfect for us bikers. And check out the bathroom. Cute!!! Can’t wait to do more of the route from Princeville going south.

Heritage Rail Trail County Park

Highly recommend Heritage Rail Trail

July, 2020 by paulruns7777

Besides a mile or two of winding through York City that required stopping for heavy traffic in spots, the trail is awesome. It’s divided into North and South Sections with the the Southern Section being much longer and historic. Also the southern section has many more road crossings with one or two that you HAVE to dismount to be safe with heavy traffic. Even though it seems like common sense on a hot summer day; I found hydrating often on the return trip was vitally important especially if your wearing a helmet (they are required, but not all riders wore them). There is a small restaurant right off the trail in New Freedom, but with COVID 19 and probably because of the National Coin shortage, they only accept cards.So far its the best trail I’ve biked on overall!

Choose start point carefully

June, 2020 by needanewid

I parked at the York Heritage Rail Trail NE Extension Rt30 Parking Lot to go biking. From there you can walk or bike north and go on a very pretty, well maintained loop for about 5 miles (bathrooms at the park at the end.). If that’s enough for you, it’s a great Trailhead. I rode that north section, then came back and went south from my start point. The first part is a very open section that runs along the creek and has cool views of the city skyline. This then takes you into York city and you must go through some sketchy neighborhoods for a mile or two. After that, you are back in the trail; it runs along the actual rail and it’s wooded and quiet. I saw a deer lazily wandering across the track. If it wasn’t for the couple of miles that made me nervous, I’d give this 5 stars. I will go again but park south of York.

Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park

Can’t wait until the resurfacing project is complete

June, 2020 by fwgj

Rode the C&O 6/14/2020 from Lock 23 to Edwards Ferry and back on trusty 2003 Gary Fisher Marlin MTB. My road bike would have been shattered to bits with the gravel, rocks and mud. Did try a small section of the resurfaced trail north of Edwards Ferry. WOW! They can’t resurface Swains Lock to Edwards Ferry fast enough for me. I’ll be making a donation to the project today, even with the COVID Shutdown. Find out more on trail status at https://www.nps.gov/choh/planyourvisit/towpath-resurfacing-project.htm
