Armstrong Trail

Nice trail

April, 2024 by vicki1960

While in the Schenley area, decided to scope the new bridge over the Kiskiminetas River. The historic bridge was recently refurbished to accommodate the bike trail. This bridge is at the very southern end of the trail at the Kiskiminetas Junction where the is an active rail line looking to the South towards the Tredway Trail. At the Kiski Junction/Schenley there is ample parking and lock #5 on the Allegheny River is nearby. Trail surface is crushed limestone and newly laid. Will get more packed down as there are more trail users. Headed North on this trail a few miles. Follows the Allegheny River. In Schenley there are quite a few old factories along the trail but heading North, becomes scenic and peaceful.

Tredway Trail

Spring 2023 Ride

April, 2024 by vicki1960

Trail is 5.5 miles in length. Parked under the 356 bridge at Freeport and biked North 1.5 miles to the Kiskiminetas Junction at the Kiskiminetas River. At this point there is an active rail line with No Trespassing signs. Just ahead on the other side of the tracks is the end of the Armstrong Trail but you cannot get to it. Turned around and went back to where the car was parked and went 4ish miles South on the trail almost to Braeburn where it ends. Nice wide trail of packed crushed limestone. Ok/doable on a hybrid bike. Trail follows the Allegheny River.

Roaring Run Trail

The crushed stone surface was in good condition despite the recent heavy rain. I look forward to visiting again when the trees have leaves.

Brooke Pioneer Trail

Trail is open!

April, 2024 by 8wnyzpk7m2

Trail is now open from end to end after bridge construction. Nicely paved trail. The entry spur to the new bridge over Ohio River is still closed.

Claysville National Pike Trail

Great Short Trail

April, 2024 by 8wnyzpk7m2

Great little trail. I have been wanting to do this trail for a while but was closed, so glad it is finally open. There is still a lot little construction that you need to go around (Trail around area is marked very well by engineering tape). Trail only had a few small muddy areas that were easily avoided. Bring a flashlight/bike light for the longest tunnel. This is a hidden little gem of a trail.

Stavich Bicycle Trail

nice trail.

Nice trail. I used it probably 50 times in the last year. Ohio side is a little rough.

Rotary Walk

Uniontown's other trail

March, 2024 by vdeal

Most of the trail users in Uniontown are on the Sheepskin and for good reason. After walking on it today my wife and I stopped at Vinny's Pizzeria (highly recommended) and afterwards walked the Rotary Walk which starts right beside the pizzeria. The trail has a crushed stone base which is decent but it is pretty narrow but there is a lot of grass on the sides. The trail is short at just over a mile long but it does go through some residential areas and is mostly quiet. We saw a few other walkers out. Eventually you reach the sometimes busy West Fayette Street but we were able to easily cross. Once across you go through the George C Marshall Memorial Park then walk through a small parking lot and the trail continues. This section was a tad sketchier. We went by one small homeless encampment and some trash but were never in any danger though it was midday on a Sunday. The trail eventually dead ends at Pittsburgh Street at which point we backtracked. I've heard that plans are for the Rotary Walk to eventually connect to the Sheepskin which will eventually be just across the road from the end we turned around at. If you're in the area it's not a bad walk.

Butler-Freeport Community Trail

I live in Butler and this is my go-to home trail. I set out to do the entire trail round trip but the trail was closed 5 miles from Freeport so today was only 30 miles round trip.

Allegheny River Trail

Winter Ride-February 2024

February, 2024 by vicki1960

Biked from Emlenton to Kennerdell and back. Unseasonably warm Winter Day. New doors have been installed on the Rockland Tunnel, South Portal, to eliminate freeze/thaw causing interior tunnel damage. The big doors are closed at this point but access is thru man door. There are no doors on the North portal.

Allegheny River Trail

Foxburg to Emlenton-January 2024

January, 2024 by vicki1960

New section under development from Foxburg to Emlenton. ART in CC has been working on this section and coming along nicely and doing a great job clearing. There are also plans for the Fox-Hunt Community Park in Foxburg at the bridge. We parked in Foxburg and walked North about 1/3 of a mile to the trail which is located behind the trucking company. There you can use this section of the trail for approx 3 miles to Emlenton. Enjoyed our Winter trek by snowshoeing.

Greene River Trail

Great Trail- will ride again

January, 2024 by 8wnyzpk7m2

Road the Green River Trail today from the Southern access point to the Northern Terminus (as stated in the description there is no parking at the Northern terminus)and back for a total of 14 miles. Trail is in great shape and very well maintained. Trail was a nice mixture of wooded trail and river side overlooks. A nice feature of the trail are the info stations along the route. Don’t miss the statue north of the Northern access point. Was pleased to see working bike maintenance station at both the Southern Access Point and at the Access Point located at the 5 mile mark. Trail was dry even with the rain we have been receiving the last week.

Butler-Freeport Community Trail

Avoid Butler

November, 2023 by legsandlouie

Rode the trail north to Butler twice. On each trip we rode into nearby downtown Butler to eat. Followed streets marked as bike routes. Between the two rides, we were accosted by angry or unpleasant locals in their cars on three occasions. Twice of which were shouts about how illegal or rude it is to ride bikes and/on the street or slow traffic. The other encounter was a buzz accompanied by shouts of an ignorant nature. All of these occurred in daylight and on city streets. This town is not just unfriendly to cyclists, it is just unfriendly.
