Great Allegheny Passage

great trail

October, 2018 by tradrrr

I really liked this trail. While being a little frustrated on the Pittsburgh city trail, I discovered this one by accident and loved how nice it was. Near Pittsburgh it takes you through some nice Pittsburgh-esqe things.

East Wetzel Rail-Trail

Walked this trail today

October, 2018 by barbjones2015

We walked this trail today, it's a very short little trail but the plaque in town provides a great deal of history. This trail really could use some TLC. Tree limbs growing so low you have to go off the trail.

North Bend Rail Trail

Mountain biking not trail riding

October, 2018 by bjpstrawberry

Trail not maintained well at all. Disappointment to bikers from Ohio. Won't return or recommend to fellow bikers.

Great Allegheny Passage

Riders of the Purple Gap had a GREAT TIME!

September, 2018 by utpaduke

My friend Tom Crotty and I rode the GAP Aug 2017-we had a great time but it was HOT!
This time we came a month later (sept 24-26) and brought along 5 riders new to the GAP!
We used same logistics again riding 1-way from Pitt to Cumberland:
* Day ONE 60 miles to Connelsville Pa -- stayed @ Seems Like Home B&B - Rick took excellent care of all of us and the breakfast he served was awesome!
* Day TWO - 45 miles to Rockwood PA - stayed @ Husqy Haven Cabin and at the Hostel-both were GREAT!
* Day THREE - 45 miles to Cumberland MD!
We hired the Cumberland Trail Connection to shuttle us with our bikes back to Pittsburgh. - Chuck was an excellent driver and took good care of us and our bikes!
The GAP must be one of the most beautiful rail-trails in the USA. Even though we got rained on for at least half of Day One and half of Day Two, none of us slipped, fell, or had any bike troubles... We still had a tremendously wonderful experience!
The sights are absolutely stunning - we heard and saw more running water than we would have if it had not been raining... the temp was very moderate
A GREAT time was had by all!
We already have a plan for the next time we return: We will stay in Cumberland and do a 4-day out and back ride to Connelsville!
Put this one on your Must-Ride list!


Deckers Creek Trail

Scenic walk 'n roll

August, 2018 by brian.mccaulley

The wife and I walked from Masontown for a couple miles towards Reedsville. My wife's mobility scooter had no problem navigating the trail. Some of the bridges have a small 1 or 2 inch "step", which I just kicked some stones against to smooth it out a bit for her 8" wheels.
I recommend bringing a camera. I posted a couple pics but they don't really do this trail justice.

Browns Run Trail

Barb Jones

August, 2018 by barbjones2015

My husband & I walked this trail today for the first time. We were really impressed with how well cared for this trail is. We will definitely use this as one of our "go to" trails when we are looking to get a couple of miles in.

Mon River Trail North

Nice trail to walk

July, 2018 by barbjones2015

My husband & I walked this trail recently, going up to Pt Marion PA. Very nice trail with some original railroad items along the way.

Montour Trail

a Fourth of July to remember

July, 2018 by ejthfcc

We started near Washington Pa and enjoyed the quality of the trail. Well maintained and clearly marked with adequate facilities along the way. The tunnels are a treat and an exciting ride through old Pennsylvania rail space!

Great Allegheny Passage

back home again

July, 2018 by ejthfcc

I had never spent much time on the Mon in years past but was more than pleasantly surprised by the quality trail starting near downtown. We went all the way to McKeesport and next time I plan on going further to link up with the Montoya trail. Well maintained and ample facilities along the way with a number of great river and city views!

Allegheny Highlands Trail

Solitude!

July, 2018 by reid.detchon

I rode round-trip from Hendricks to Highland Park (Elkins) and back for a 50-mile trip and never saw another cyclist. On a hot July day the northern half was much more pleasant (shady and scenic), and the grade was very manageable. The southern half is much more open, and the trail occasionally all but disappears into thin lines of gravel. There are really no amenities on the trail, and the southern end stops about half a mile from Elkins, but it is an easy ride on street or sidewalk to town. As noted by another reviewer, the trail is closed from Mile Marker 15-17 for construction work for the Corridor H highway, but I was riding on a Saturday and was able to pick my way past the big idle machines and over the chewed up roadway, rather than detour onto the road.

Montour Trail

Great ride on a warm day

July, 2018 by schiferl

We started at milepost 6 at the Cliff Mine parking area and went out and back to milestone 25 (national tunnel) on a warm day (88 Deg F). The ride was great with shade over 75% of this portion of the trail. The trail is well maintained and almost all was crushed limestone. We had road bikes and were fine with these.
Went through 2 tunnels (milepost 7 and 25) where it was cool and very moist (water flowing on walls and some dropping from the ceiling).
Nice historic signs along the way describing bridges and coal mining and processing that was previously in this area. Very well done.
It was obvious the trail is continually maintained and was in great shape. Regular water stops and trail maps every five miles and pocket maps available at the trail and online.
Many trees alongside the trail provided great shade but blocked the view.
Gradual grade up and down throughout. Only a few city blocks are on city street. All rest was off road.
Overall great ride. I recommend it.

Wheeling Heritage Trails

Great Trails

July, 2018 by fdb3

I began at the Elm Grove Trailhead on the Wheeling Creek Trail and continued north on the Ohio River Trail until it was under water from the recent heavy rains. I should have been within just a couple miles of the northern most trailhead as I traveled out 17.5 miles. I did not ride the southern portion of the Ohio River Trail choosing to go back to the car when the Wheeling Creek Trail intersected.

The Hempfield Tunnel and Viaduct are amazing. The tunnel was obviously for a mainline as it is wide enough for two sets of railroad tracks. Obviously a train has not passed through the tunnel in many years as a huge branch has grown over the eastern entrance to the tunnel well above cyclists. The tunnel was built in 1904 and made to last as the interior and the facades are lined with brick. Unfortunately taggers have left their mark with graffiti but it could be worse.

The paved surface is in very good shape considering the winters that it suffers. There were some rough areas in the pavement, but very few and that beats gravel!. The trail is completely flat along the Ohio river and it goes from urban in Downtown Wheeling then back and forth between wilderness and industrial. No complaints over a lack of majestic scenery as the river is always nearby. The Pike Island Lock Complex is intriguing.

I rate it 9 gears (based on a 10 speed cassette)
