Ghost Town Trail

Great trail

August, 2017 by aralvarez.alvarez

This is a great trail. Largely flat is very clean.

I only did 6 miles. Bring your own water and do a potty break before you start.

Westmoreland Heritage Trail

Great Trail

August, 2017 by mussy

I rode the trail from BY Park to Murrysville. It's beautiful and close to home. I plan to use it often. Unfortunately 2 kids were on the trail with an ATV. I hope that can be stopped. Also, crossing the road in Murrysville is a scarey experience

Ghost Town Trail

Beautiful but needs port-a-potty!

August, 2017 by arniecaf

This is a beautiful trail. Please be aware there aren't port-a-potty's along the trail. If you need a bathroom, you'll have to go into a town and find a business or go in the woods. We started in Ebensburg, rode 10 miles then turned around and rode back to Ebensburg and only saw one portapotty next to the ball fields in Nanty-Glo. We also heard there were big hills. We felt it is definitely an uphill grade but it is do-able. Other than that, it's a beautiful ride. It reminds me of Ohiopyle area/GAP Trail.

Allegheny River Trail

Emlenton to Kennerdell Tunnel

August, 2017 by crider71

I've been on this trail several times and it's probably one of my favorite places to ride my bike! Recently I started in Emlenton, rode to the Kennerdell Tunnel and back. It's best to take a light since there are two dark tunnels to go through. If you take your time you might be able the see some deer, geese, birds, or other wildlife along the way. There's also nice resting areas that offer great views of the Allegheny River.

Wheeling Heritage Trails

Wheeling Heritage Trail

August, 2017 by johngenna2

We were staying at the Ogelbay Resort in WV and took a ride on the Wheeling Heritage Trail which follows a portion of the Ohio River. The trail is ok but if your looking for a scenic trail along a river don't bother. The trail is paved and in decent shape but you see more of the gritty side of old industrial Wheeling than you see of the river. We're from the Pittsburgh area and in my experience the trails here are far superior.

Panhandle Trail

From a trail to enjoy to a trail to avoid

August, 2017 by 1heyjeff

Recently the crunched limestone was covered with asphalt from the east side of McDonald for at least 10 miles to the west. This is now an unpleasant ride. The area is surrounded by hard surface paved road. Why add more? It rides harder, hotter, doesn't drain as well and over time as it buckles and potholes what will maintenance be like? and what will it cost?
Trail has gone from one to enjoy to one to avoid.

Hoodlebug Trail

What's a Hoodlebug?

July, 2017 by amosonu

I rode the Hoodlebug Trail on July 2 starting in Saylor Park near the town of Black Lick. The trail winds through a managed forest area for a mile or so before joining with an interstate highway. I blitzed the two mile section running parallel to the noisy highway before arriving in the town of Homer City. There is a circuitous route through town and a rest area with the local history placards and a bench or two. The trail continues on through a wooded section and then some farmland. There are several bridges and streams along the route where people stop to look and take pictures. You will see a lot of the IUP crowd running and biking along the route as you approach Indiana. I like this trail because it is well maintained and there are several historical sights along the way detailing industry from the 1900's. They tell you what a "hoodlebug" is, too.

Panhandle Trail

Carnegie to the state line & back

July, 2017 by hoffmarl17

This trail is one of my favorites. We have ridden from the Carnegie trail head to just across the WV state line and back several times. There is a small section of the trail that is loose gravel, but otherwise it is largely paved and a well-maintained trail. Depending on how far you're going, it does get a bit remote, so bring plenty of water and some snacks. Also, you will spend some time out of tree cover, so sunscreen is also a good idea.

Allegheny River Trail

Parker to Oil City & back (2 day trip)

July, 2017 by hoffmarl17

We started on the little section of trail in Parker, thinking it would be easy to hop over from Foxburg to Emlenton on the roads - I would not recommend doing this. The short little Parker trail was idyllic, but the few miles from that trail's end to the next trail head in Emlenton was harrowing (riding on a main road - 268 I believe?- with heavy truck traffic was one of very few options). However, the rest of the ride to Oil City was quite enjoyable even though it rained through most of Day 1. As others have noted, there is a section of trail blocked by a landowner, and the detour around it is tricky (kids and inexperienced riders might have some trouble on the rockier sections, especially if it is wet as it was during our ride). The tunnels were fun, and we were glad to have our headlights along for them as they are quite dark. We stayed over night in an eclectic AirBNB in Oil City (look for "Deep River Guest House" on AirBNB) that met all of our bicycling needs (easy access from the trail, porch to lock up the bikes on, a quick walk or ride to restaurants, etc.), then journeyed back to Parker the next day. On the way back, we tried a different route from Emlenton to Foxburg, which was a different kind of challenge (a "roller coaster" township road with lots of loose, chunky gravel), which I would also not recommend doing. However, we rewarded ourselves with some samples at the Foxburg winery and made it the rest of the way. Looking forward to doing the Emelenton-->Oil City (or perhaps farther) trip again!

Montour Trail

Other end may be better

July, 2017 by hoffmarl17

We started at the Clairton end of the trail, and I don't care to do it again. We biked about 7 miles out and turned around - only a small portion was on an actual trail, the rest was on back roads as well as a brief section on a fairly high-traffic road. Hoping to start at the other end next time and have a better experience.

MetroParks Bikeway

Great

Also known as Mill Creek trail. We parked at the Kirk Rd trailhead and rode north to Niles (the trailmap needs to be updated since trail goes all the way to Niles now), turned around and rode to the other end at Western Reserve Rd. - 30mi roundtrip. Trail is paved, in good shape, and mostly shady. Gradual uphill as you go south. Not much in the way of scenery, but an enjoyable ride nontheless.

Great Allegheny Passage

J&J Adventure

July, 2017 by j.hoffmann

This was our first long bike adventure ever. I've been retired several years and my wife retired last summer '16 from teaching. She had been a complete academic and never was interested in sports except when our kids were involved. Now, she loves exercising and gym workouts. We've done single day bike excursions, but nothing like this. We started in Homewood (Pittsburgh area) and rode far (52 miles) for rookies on the first day, to Connellsville. Unbelievably beautiful natural environment surrounded us every stroke of the pedal. First night we stayed at the Connellsville B&B and were very impressed with immaculate cleanliness, delicious breakfast, and pleasant owner, Lucille. After our 52-mile day, I was worried about my wife's physical well being, but by the next morning she felt much better and we were glad we had planned a much shorter ride (28 miles) Day 2 to Confluence. There, we stayed overnight at Parker House, also a pleasant stay, though no breakfast is included. We purchased simple breakfast food items at the local grocery store. The third day was our longest ride (62 miles), planned knowing the last 24 miles into Cumberland are downhill. Our daughter, husband, and granddaughters were waiting at Mile Zero with flowers and cheers. Just a beautiful, enjoyable, and educational trip. And you meet the kind, helpful, friendly people on the trail that help make this world a better place. Outstanding scenery, cool shade on hot days thanks to beautiful vegetation, historical passageway with awesome bridges and tunnels, well-maintained trails. We can't wait to do it again!
