Great Valley Rail Trail

Great Valley is Quiet Oasis

September, 2017 by hal.snik

Wide lightly trafficked rail trail that is great for a walk, easy hike, trail run or easy mountain bike ride. While the trail is wide, in some parts it is merely a footpath in the grass. Part of a loop that spans over 13 miles. Bug spray is recommended.

Susquehanna Warrior Trail

Nice wide level trail

September, 2017 by birdsofphilly

I just rode this trail a few days ago. My plan was to ride from West Nanticoke (Garden Drive-in) to Berwick. Trail was well maintained up to Shickshinny, there is an area that runs under a bridge in Shickshinny that you would be better off jumping on Rt 11 for a 1/4 of mile, it is very swampy and grown in, I did enjoy riding through it , but I avoided it on the way back. After Shickshinny the trail extends to the River Wetlands across from the power plant near Berwick, this is the 1st marker and approximately 12 miles from the Garden Drive-in. There is another trail that picks up in this area, The River Trail, I continued on the River Trail for about two miles but it had many intersections and I was unsure of where it would ultimately lead to, I will explore this section again at a later time. All in all it was a good ride, if you do not want to have to negotiate any obstacles or ride along Rt 11 I would suggest sticking to the section between West Nanticoke and Shickshinny.

Greater Hazleton Rails to Trails

Decent Ride in the Hazleton Area

August, 2017 by leibigd

This is one of my least favorite trails that I have ridden around the area. The first mile is actually pretty nice, it is covered in the standard crushed stone that most Rail-Trails use. This section has a few small curves and a very slight grade, as well as numerous benches, memorials, and even some exercise equipment which is a nice touch if you are out walking or running on the trail.

Unfortunately, once you cross the Stockton Mountain Rd, the terrain abruptly switches to large red rocks, grass patches, and divots throughout for the next 1.7 miles before switching back to the crushed stone from the first section. Shortly before this switch back, there is a fairly steep hill that leads up to an admittedly nice view of the Dreck Creek Reservoir before continuing down another hill on the other side. It is a real shame that this section doesn't use the crushed stone as you can gain significant speed going down either side of this hill, but you unfortunately need to be cautious due to the terrain. This small peak also has multiple picnic tables.

The next section has some beautiful rock cut areas as well as a few areas with pretty nice views. Eventually you'll veer right, away from Beryllium Rd, through a curvy part of the trail that comes out to a bridge over train tracks. If you get really lucky you might get to watch the train cross beneath the bridge.

The final portions are the main reason I don't prefer this trail. After the bridge, there is a gradual climb up to the top of a desolate hill and then a steep and usually washed out drop on the other side which abruptly ends at the Beryllium Mine Access Rd (which is still used by heavy machinery, so DO NOT just blow through it). Across that road, is a few up and down areas with deep crushed stone, slowing your speed to a slog and providing potential risk to those on anything other than mountain bikes. After a while of this, the trail just sort of ends at a back road in Jeddo.

This trail is definitely worth doing once, and I can see the appeal if you live right in Hazleton, but there are certainly much nicer trails to devote your time to in NEPA. Cheers and enjoy the ride!

D & L Trail - Black Diamond Trail (Mountain Top-White Haven)

Mostly Wonderful & Semi-challenging Section with Incredible Return Trip!

August, 2017 by leibigd

Let's get the elephant in the room out of the way first; as others have noted, the first 1.6 mile section heading North from White Haven until you cross Middleburg Rd is pretty terrible. If you have multiple cycles at your disposal, bring a mountain bike (or at the very least a mountain-leaning hybrid) just because of this section. It is extremely rocky, sandy, and damaged with ruts. Best to take this section slow than risk a fall and ruin the rest of this awesome trail.

Now, on to the good stuff! After you cross over (and south) on Middleburg Rd, you'll arrive on a section much like the rest of the Northern parts of the D&L Trail. The terrain is easily manageable with anything other than a road bike as it is crushed stone. The scenery has many interesting features as you travel North, including heavily wooded areas, more open pastures, a small bridge, multiple ponds, a large and beautiful lake with picnic tables and benches in increments along it's edge, and even a little bit of more winding sections near the Northern terminus.

The entire trail has about a 2% grade while traveling North, which is especially noticeable if you are used to most other Rail-Trails that tend to be entirely flat or less than 0.5% grade. This provides a nice challenge for the legs that you wouldn't get on the other sections of the D&L trail. The other side to this, is it provides an exhilarating return trip to White Haven, potentially cutting your return time in half from your trip to Mountain Top! Just remember to slow down and be careful through the final 1.6 miles on the approach to White Haven. Enjoy!

Wood Duck Nature Trail (Wallkill River NWR)

Nice easy walk, best photos can be taken 1st half mile

August, 2017 by zenarcher63

If you want some nice swamp photos, mainly close shots, there are opportunities within the first half mile. But further onward about half way,
" heads up " literally....there's a huge dead branch up in the trees that overhangs the trail. Other than that I found it to be a nice walk, short but nice.

Susquehanna Warrior Trail

Disappointed

August, 2017 by mednat2

I will start by saying this was our second R-T of the day. I usually would not submit a review on a trail that we only rode to the half-way point, but I have to make an exception this time. This trail is very poorly maintained, little more than a single track path in sections. Dirt, grass, weeds, stones ,etc. After 5+ miles we just found no reason to continue, as it just wasn't fun. Sorry, but even one star is generous. Pa. Tandem Team

Trolley Trail (PA)

easy trail yet can bring challenge to your ride!

July, 2017 by kmr5189

I am new to biking and feel this trail is an excellent trail to start training on. There is a subtle, but overall challenging incline in both directions (heading towards Glenburn or heading towards Clarks Summit). The trail is clean cut and wide. I love the greenery, seeing a train pass on the tracks along the trail, and the safe cross walks when you have to cross a street.

which I did not care for (White haven feels like a town trapped in 1945 with 2017 traffic superimposed. I did not enjoy the town and couldn't find anywhere but the grocery that wasn't cash only). The trail, however, is delightful.

The top part of the trail was simply gorgeous. This was my second trail in two days that felt like I was going downhill. Turns out (according to my phone) there's only a total of ~500ft between the highest and lowest point. I get about the same on the Katy trail, which is pretty flat).

The lower part of the trail is more like what I'm used too (again comparing to the Katy trail in Mo.). It follows a train track down to some touristy town. There's a steam engine train that will apparently take you up to some point on the trail, so you can ride back to the town. I would have given the trail 5 stars if it weren't for all the folks on that part that have no idea how one shares a trial (I was there on 7/3/2017). Also the bottom part is pretty sunny in mid afternoon.

The top part of the trail has all the waterfalls and is also shaded nearly the whole way mid afternoon. The mileage on the map seems a bit off, as well. My phone registered 49.05 round trip.

Nice clean and easy trail. Nice history signage. Good combo of shade and sun. Nothing spectacular, but still very nice.

Susquehanna Warrior Trail

Nice local trail

Really enjoyed our trip on the Warrior Trail today from the Garden Drive-In to Shickshinny, about 7.5 miles. Grabbed lunch at J-Angelos and found a picnic table in Shickshinny Park before heading back to our car. Elevation change was 62ft. one way which feels very gradual over 7+ miles. There were a few puddles and muddy patches, not surprising given the recent rain. Also quite a few tree limbs growing over the trail that we had to duck. Overall a very nice trail with little traffic on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. As we were leaving I noticed there is a trail section heading north of the Drive-In, it appears to go at least to the intersection with Rt-29. Maybe we'll park at near JJ Banko's next time.
