Butler-Freeport Community Trail

Another nice ride!

September, 2021 by vicki1960

Parked at mile marker 16.5 at Bonniebrook. Biked to mile 8.5 and back then down towards Butler. High point on the trail is Cabot. Trail is somewhat shady and there are many open areas through fields as well. Always a great ride on this trail.
Surface is crushed stone. Some sections of the trail were very wide at 10-12 feet and other sections barely a few feet wide.
This is not an Equestrian horse trail.

Ghost Town Trail

Day 1: Saylor Park -> Dilltown; Day 2: C&I Spur Trail

September, 2021 by trailbunny

August 11 -- arrived at Saylor Park as a morning rain subsided and the humidity rose with temps in the 80s F. The trailhead to Dilltown, near the vault toilet, was not immediately obvious. Be careful not to take the Hoodlebug trail by mistake. Spotting a large black snake was the highlight of our day. Saylor Park has a nice picnic pavilion where we ate lunch after our easy, somewhat downhill return ride from Dilltown. Rain started soon after lunch.
Considering the amount of rain in the days prior to and the morning of our ride, the trail was in excellent condition, even for our road bikes. No serious washouts or mud. Kudos to the trail crews who maintain this section!! A lot of shade made this a great trail to ride on hot summer days.
August 13 -- more rain last night and another day in the 80s F. A moment of confusion when we tried to find trailhead parking at Vintondale/Eliza Station. Trailhead parking is down the street and around the corner from the Eliza Furnace site. Again we were impressed by the excellent trail conditions (more kudos to the trail crews). The Hwy 422 underpass at MM4 (the confluence of the north branch of Blacklick Creek and Elk Creek) is the only tricky portion of the trail. Pay attention to the "Slow Down" signs or you could end up in the creek. The almost 26-mile return ride was our longest so far this year. Our legs were relieved to have a mostly downhill return ride back to Vintondale. There was plenty of shade, great creek views and lots of late summer flowers to add to the joy of riding.

Great Allegheny Passage

Very enjoyable

August, 2021 by carebare

Started in Cumberland and headed west. Complete glide back to Cumberland

Montour Trail

Well maintained, mostly smooth and flat riding with great scenery

August, 2021 by ejbeckl

I feel other reviews and pictures tell the story but a couple notes from my 2 day trek on the entire trail.

1. From the north side by the airport until Library it is a dedicated trail that is maintained well and has picnic tables, benches, (towards the middle) 2 free primitive camping areas, and portajohns. Completely dedicated portion is almost 40 miles. After Library the trail bounces between dedicated trail and riding on the road. I turned around at Library…. (Bad reviews probably came from section after Library)

2. The Panhandle Trail Connector has a parking lot right beside McDonald and is exactly in the middle of the dedicated portion of the trail. Perfect spot to ride north section and back one day. And south and back the 2nd day.

3. This is an awesome trail! It has wooded areas, hillsides, beautified urban areas, industry, multiple tunnels, spectacular bridge overlooks throughout, and you’re never too far away from lunch or ice cream or cell service. What more could you want????

Great Allegheny Passage

GAP ride

August, 2021 by kylemarsden

my son and i rode this trail over 3 days camping along the way at West Newton & Confluence. this trail is peaceful and quiet once out of Pittsburgh. The people in all the towns are social and glad to help in anyway needed. The trail has plenty of places to rest and relax. you follow rivers probably 120 of the 150 miles

Montour Trail

Library to Hendersonville-August, 2021

August, 2021 by vicki1960

Biked from Library to Hendersonville and back, mile markers 35 to 25. Trail surface is asphalt paved then goes to crushed limestone, then back to paved, then limestone. For the most part this trail section of 10 miles is in very good condition. Some wooded areas provided welcomed shade on a hot sunny day. Saw a few deer. At about mile marker 30 there is a storage place with awesome old signs, two old firetrucks, a restored caboose and interesting information on the former railroad. Trail services in Library just off the trail, a few places to eat. In Hendersonville along the trail there is a bike shop which offers bike rental and service also has pizza and cold drinks. In Hendersonville is a large trailhead with parking for many. Passed a few small trailheads along the way as well. Great ride on this stretch and will return to ride on more of this trail.

Butler-Freeport Community Trail

Very nice trail

August, 2021 by vdeal

Rode this with my buddy in late July and this was a very nice trail. We started in Freeport and rode to Butler and back - 40.4 miles. If I could I would give this a 4.5 rating. Pay no attention to some of the other reviewers negatives, especially the part about bringing your own water. It's a rail trail - we all know to bring our own water. Very few trails have reliable sources of water along them. The trail has recently been worked on and is in excellent shape from Freeport until the final extension into Butler - maybe the last 4 miles or so. It is a nice wide, smooth path except those 4 miles which are narrower, not quite single track. More like 1 1/2 track - you can pass other bikers but it's a bit tight. I knocked off a star for that and the lack of amenities. There is nothing along the trail except the Derailleur Cafe somewhat midpoint and maybe a restaurant in a caboose that didn't appear to be open. On the plus side, it is very wooded so that helps on a sunny day. As other reviewers have said, it is uphill both ways to a high point closer to Butler. All-in-all, a good ride.

Deckers Creek Trail

Great waterfalls

August, 2021 by pxm24j6whq

Well maintained, shaded, beautiful scenery and beautiful waterfalls around mile marker 12.

Westmoreland Heritage Trail

Only the eastern segment is good for biking.

August, 2021 by FrankJ

I've ridden both segments of this trail many, many times. The eastern segment (Delmont -- Slckville) is somewhat challenging, scenic, and fun. That can't be said for the western segment (Export -- Trafford) because there are just too many walkers who are pushing baby strollers, or walking four abreast, or ignoring trail courtesies. I rode this western part over 20 times in 2020; even more in 2019. I rode it once this year. That's all for me until we get a chilly day in November when most of the walkers aren't using the trail.
Please note that ALL of us have a right to use the trail. But, with rights come responsibilities.

Coal & Coke Trail

Not much of a bike ride

August, 2021 by FrankJ

This trail is way too short for biking. It might be about 4 miles of real trail until you get to share roads with motor vehicles, and of course, that is not fun. The trail at this point is not clearly marked. One could get lost trying to find some of the roads to share.

I tried the trail without investigating it. That was a bad idea. I like to ride at least 25 miles. This was woefully disappointing.

Indian Creek Valley Bike Trail

Nice trail

July, 2021 by crsdws_tl

I parked in Champion and rode south to a few miles beyond Indian Head to where the trail stops. Trail was in good condition. Trail surface was on the rough side. I rode my hybrid bike, but my mountain bike is probably more suitable. Nearly 100% of the trail is in the woods and provides great shade from the sun. This would be a trail to see in the fall with the changing colors. Ought to be beautiful!
