Genesee Valley Greenway

Beautiful and very enjoyable trail.

November, 2022 by weeks930

My wife and I rode our bikes in the fall of 2019 from Piffard south towards Mount Morris and found the trail well maintained and easy riding, only exception was lots of acorns on the trail. No big deal. In July 2022 we rode several miles south of Belfast to Black Creek and really enjoyed this stretch. Scenic and very easy riding. Well maintained too. Prettiest trail in Western New York without a doubt. They now have funding to complete the southern terminus of this trail so 2023 will be busy on the extreme south end. Can't wait for it to be done!

Marienville Bike Trail

Beautiful

October, 2022 by daveanddarcee

Have ridden this trail several times from spring to fall.Section from Marienville for a good many miles is wooded and from Leeper to Marianne is more open fields and farms.The trail overall is beautiful and sparsely used.

Rail 66 Country Trail

September ride, 40 miles

September, 2022 by vicki1960

Parked in Lucinda, mile marker 7 on the trail, and biked to Marianne (mile .50) and back then up to the Forest County Line, mile marker 20.5 and back. Covered the whole trail, end to end. Always a nice ride. Goldenrod was in full bloom. Trail ends at the Clarion/Forest County line but continues another 6.5 miles in Forest County as the Marienville 4-seasons trail.

Kinzua Valley Trail

Another great PA trail!

September, 2022 by machar

This trail is fabulous! We only walked a short distance from the Westline trailhead/parking but enjoyed the time. The trail is maintained very well and has plenty of benches for breaks. We don't do many long hikes anymore due to age and mobility issues for us and our 14 year old dog, so we look for nice level places like this. This trail follows Kinzua Creek and eventually they hope to connect to Kinzua Bridge State Park. It is easy to find just off Hwy 219 and taking the turn to Westline. Westline Inn is just before one parking area with pavilion, grill and picnic tables. Plenty of parking. There were two other trail crossings/parking areas before this one. Lots of signage makes it easy to find. PA has some of the best rail trails we've ever been to. If you are in the area, make sure to try them all!

Genesee Valley Greenway

You need a shock on this trail

September, 2022 by snick1956

The GVG is advertised as a Hybrid bike trail to ride comfortably. Don't believe it. This is a Mountain Bike trail. Lots of long stretches of bumpy dirt and grass legs.

Pat McGee Trail

Solid Rail-Trail, variety of views, well maintained

August, 2022 by juleshoepting

Awesome, well-maintained multi-use trail! Buggy in woody areas, as can be expected, fine in the sun. Walked the whole thing out and back (24.2 miles) in a day. Variety of views: classic rail-trail, middle of valleys / mountains, in the midst of marshes, along lakes and ponds, in various woods, and across a continental divide. Features 6 railroad-turned-pedestrian bridges, and 5 parking areas. There are a few gazebos in Little Valley, but beyond that, no benches / rest areas. No bathrooms along the trail. There is a lean-to about half a mile south of the most northern terminus. Trail shares over a mile with the Finger Lakes Trail and North Country Trail: these can be taken into Allegany State Park if desired. Note: interpretative signage runs north to south.

Rail 66 Country Trail

Great Ride

August, 2022 by dcsnyder

Very nice paved trail. Started in Marianne and road the whole trail to the county line and then another five mile section of paved trail to Marienville. For a 50 mile round trip. The section in Forest county is not as nicely paved.
The northern part is more remote in woods. The southern part goes through various fields, towns for nice scenic views.

Greater Jamestown Riverwalk

It's about 1.39 miles paved. At both ends, it terminates into streets without marked bike lands.

McClintock Trail

Nice trail in Oil City

July, 2022 by vicki1960

Nice trail a few miles from the Samuel Justus trail and is connected by the Oil City trail. It follows an active railroad and is separate by a fence.

Oil Creek State Park Trail

Summer Ride 2022

July, 2022 by vicki1960

Very historic trail within Oil Creek State Park. Trail is 10ish miles long and runs through the park. Surface is asphalt paved. Very good condition. As far as shade, about half shaded, seems the Northern end is more shaded. Starting / ending points are at the Park Office in Petroleum Centre and Jersey Bridge at Drakes Well in Titusville. In Titusville, this trail connects seamlessly to the Queen City Trail, length 2 miles. In addition to a bike ride, there are other sights to see , things to do while in the area.

Rail 66 Country Trail

Summer 2022 Ride

July, 2022 by vicki1960

Always a great ride on the Rail 66 Country Trail. Parked at Mile 7 in Lucinda and biked down to the beginning in Marianne then back up to Lucinda and beyond for a few miles to make it a 30-miler round trip. Trail surface in very good condition as the pavement is only a few years old. The volunteers and members of this organization do a great job with trail upkeep...very pristine!
On a hot Summers day the canopy of trees was welcomed.
