Allegheny River Valley Trail

Wonderful

August, 2017 by streak1

Ran here in July on vacation.Started at St Bonaventure Tennis Courts.Cool summer morning.Just a very pleasant trail,scenic views of river,and friendly people.

Mahoning Shadow Trail

Quiet, well maintained, very few use the trail outside of Punxsy

August, 2017 by robrosey

We parked in Cloe, and headed into Punxsy, then turned around went back to Cloe and headed to the Winslow trail head. You have to briefly ride on the road to reconnect to the trail, just past the Cloe Lumber yard. The ride to Winslow is mostly up hill and was a great work out. Crews had obviously been out to do trail maintainence with the heavy rain the area has received this summer. Saw only a few others when we were on the trail. The trail is very secluded, with only a few benches. Seeing hunting tree stands right next to the trail is a bit unnerving, but I just won't ride this trail come Fall.

Kinzua Valley Trail

Nice trail though the mountains

July, 2017 by vicki1960

Trail runs along the Allegheny River, along the bottom of the mountains. We parked at the Trailhead in Westline and biked to Route 321 at Little Meade Run. Trail did continue to Red Bridge, another mile and a half away. Total trail that is completed is 6.3 miles as of July, 2017. In Westline there is the Westline Inn which offers lodging and food. Check with their website on hours.
Trail goes through wooded and open areas. Seems kind of on the remote side. There is no cell phone service. Trail surface is a little rough but we knew this ahead of time. Not a bad trail surface. Some areas were washed out due to storms but very much passable. We didn't have any trouble getting through the trail. Saw a few people.
At the Trailhead in Westline there is parking for about 20 cars and a picnic area. At the 321 area of the trail there is parking for about 10 cars.
All in all, a great little trail if you want to experience the Allegheny National Forest.
Trail is about a half hour away (by vehicle) from Kinzua Dam if you want to check it out while in the area.

July, 2017 by aslan11

This was the ugliest trail I've ever seen. First of all, didn't even look like a trail. We had a hard time even finding it. All gravelly, rutted and too rough. More like a four wheeler trail. And the black flies were horrible. Looks abandoned and creepy. Should be taken off this link. Waste of a Saturday

Beautiful scenery along the trail. This one needs a lot of work but was a great experience. Make sure you take the bug spray, they were awful, and take along plenty of fluids! This is definitely a Trail for a mountain bike, many very rough & rocky areas as well as many soft/muddy areas.

David S. Ammerman Trail (formerly Clearfield to Grampian Trail)

Curwensville to Grampian End, Nice, but Fair Amount of Road Noise

June, 2017 by jeffs1

We live about 30 minutes from Curwensville, and have done a few of the other rail trails in central PA, but never tried this one as on the maps it appeared to run pretty close to some well-traveled roads. After putting it off for several years though, and wanting to try something different, we finally decided to give it a shot.

After reading several reviews and talking to others who have done the trail, we decided to try the section from Curwensville to Grampian first as it was described as more scenic that the Clearfield to Curwensville section. It was hard to find good information on parking facilities and mileage points for the trail online (other than the two trailhead ends), and we didn't want to park right in Curwensville. I finally found info that there was limited parking on Rustic Road, across from Aletta's Farm Market. Just outside of Curwensville, we came to a large parking area in front of an old brick factory, and decided to parked there instead. This increased the ride to Grampian by about half a mile, and added some nice scenery. During the course of our ride, we discovered, there is also unofficial parking at almost every country road the trail crosses, of which there are several.

The trail itself was in good shape, but there were a few small holes along the edges where some culverts had caved-in, if you were accidentally riding too close to the edge and hit one it would definitely be a big bump, but chances of that would be pretty slim, there were only one or two over 5 miles. The main thing to be aware of going towards Grampian is the climb. Technically, it's not that steep (4%?), but it is a constant uphill the whole ride from where we started almost to the Grampian trailhead, and seems steeper in short sections. Being 54 and 51, and in so-so physical condition, it was a real workout for the legs, but down-shitfing to a low gear made it do-able with only one stop at about the halfway point. Our 15-year old son had no trouble whatsoever. The nice thing is you can coast the whole way back in no time at all.

Scenery-wise, I'd rate this section of the trail a 7+ (comparing to Clarion/Little Toby Trail or Lower Trail at 8-9). It crosses some nice streams, passes under an old RR bridge (abandoned line), and follows Kratzer Run for much of the route. There are a lot of rhododendron along the sides, some small rock overhangs at one spot, and lots of mountain laurel in one area. 90% of this section was in shade. The biggest negative was the road noise. You are riding parallel to a fairly well-traveled, 2-lane road for about 85% of the route, and you can definitely hear cars and trucks on it, although if the leaves are out, you can't see it, as it is on the other side of Kratzer Run.

I had read that there were no bathroom facilities along the route, but when we crossed Rustic Road there was a sign indicating restrooms were available at Aletta's Market (across the road), and it looked like there was a port-a-potty in the parking lot there. Further on, there was a port-a-potty actually on the side of the trail (I'm guessing around a mile/mile-and-a-half or so from the Grampian end?) There were 2 picnic tables under shelters on this section, and a couple of benches.

Eventually, we would like to do the section from Curwensville to Clearfield, although that looks to be much less scenic.

If you are looking for a scenic trail in this region with a lot of historic spots to explore, I suggest the Clarion–Little Toby Trail from Brockway to Ridgeway.

Rail 66 Country Trail

It's going to be nice when it's done!

As of May, 2017: The finished section of the trail runs from mile 5 to approx mile 9. Finished as in some type of gravel on top of asphalt. Trail surface is rough. But passable. Would not recommend Rollerblading. You can bike it or go on foot. Parking in Lucinda at old train station....near the US post office. There are no trail signs along Route 66. We found it off Maple Drive in Lucinda. Trail will eventually begin at mile 0 along Route 322 in Shippensville behind the Italian Restaurant. Right now it's not even recognizable as a trail on that end. Just after Mile 9 the trail surface switches to cinder and hard dirt, I found it ok to bike on using a street bike. It seemed smoother than the gravel section. Someday it will be really nice....takes time!

Redbank Valley Rail Trail

Beautiful Trail

June, 2017 by fearless.leader75

I entered the trail from the Brookville side. The directions to this entrance show 2nd and Western St. This is not accurate. Take Main St to White St and head south. Entrance is on the West side of the road <.25 miles from Main. Entrance is clearly marked.

The trail is lovely. I used a trail stroller to run with my little one and had no problems at all. The ground is hard packed sand like texture so great for some reason assistance but definitely easy to navigate. The area is clean and free of debris. If you live nearby and do not take advantage of this trail, you're really missing out. We only went in a few miles, but I noted that it is very easy for walk, run, bike and stroller activities. Definitely looking forward to seeing all of the trail.
