Trout Island Trail

Lots of gnats on 5/16/2017, 9am

May, 2017 by srugrad97

This is a great trail for running or walking (maybe not biking until they extend it...would be a quick bike ride). Parking lot is small, but it was not busy on a Tuesday morning in May (use address 3700 Trout Island Road; Sharpsville, PA, to get to the lot). The only downside to the trail was that there were huge swarms of gnats the entire time I was running, which was annoying. Perhaps that would only be at certain times of the day or year, though.

Allegheny River Trail

Overnight stop

November, 2016 by cindy.gerner.5

After visiting out of state we were returning home and decided to stop in Emlenton for the night. The next morning we rode from emlenton to the Kendrell Tunnel. The trail was empty and and conditions were great. It was the first time we rode through tunnels that really required headlights. It was awesome. I plan on going back and riding the other connecting trails

John C. Oliver Multi-Purpose Loop Trail

Fall Ride

November, 2016 by vicki1960

Fall ride in November, the day before it snowed! Nice day out and there were others taking advantage of the great weather.
The marina is closed, all the watercraft has been removed.
Restrooms along the trail, some are closed, some remain open year around. They are noted at the restrooms. If one is closed, go to the next one.

Mid September ride

September, 2016 by jeff_g

Nice cool overcast day to ride. Thought we would give the trail a try. It's nice and if you do it twice you get a little over 25 miles. I did find that at times it was better to get off the trail and ride the rode, but still a very nice ride.

We rode from brocton end of the trail down to the lake. trail is all grass and dirt. bike trails is also used for snowmobile trail. Nice ride for riders looking for a good trail but also kinda off road.

Oil Creek State Park Trail

Best of the Allegheny Trail System trails

September, 2016 by joelkring

We loved everything about this trail. Well maintained,(a tree had fallen across the trail and as we were riding back to our car , the rangers were already on their way to clear it) great scenery, even a rest room mid trail.

Allegheny River Trail

great paved trail except !

September, 2016 by joelkring

Lucky for us the information center at Franklin was open. We were told about the land owner near mile 13 that has the trail blocked. Riders have created a detour around the property but it is a very rough ride. Other then that it was a beautiful trail. There was lots of debris south of mile 13, some from a recent storm some from trail maintenance. It was also not clear if the section between Emlenton and Foxburg was open to the public or not.

Allegheny River Trail

great all day out and back

September, 2016 by elsk707

Rode this trail for a second time this season. This day we rode from Emlenton to Franklin and back. Right at 50 miles. There are a few more miles east and south going out of the Emlenton parking lot, but you have to ride on the road for a bit. About 13 miles (going NW) there is a rocky detour around some camps. Must have been some dispute over the right of way. Anyhow, we made it through on hybrids. Not like on a straight road bike. Big loose stones and washout. Otherwise a fantastic ride.

Allegheny River Trail

Franklin to Brandon

September, 2016 by vicki1960

We parked in Franklin and biked South to just passed Brandon. A little past Brandon the pavement ends for a short section. So if you want to stay on asphalt paved, it's 12.3 miles from Franklin to Brandon. And then back, makes for a nice ride.

A lot of tree coverage so it was nice when full sun.

New asphalt pavement from the Belmar Bridge to Brandon. The rest of the pavement is in good condition but this new asphalt is really nice.

At Brandon, there is a self serve beverage place. It's called Brandonacres Pop Shop. Cold water, pop and gatorade. You can see it from the trail. This is pretty much it as far as services in that area! Be sure to have singles and quarters as there is no attendant and you drop the money in a sealed box welded to the wall. So there is no way to get change. Still a great service!
