I did this trail twice in a weekend. I liked it.
Super nice trail to ride on a fall day . Well maintained. The ride from Bowerston to scio is very beautiful any time you ride . Make sure you stop at the dairy bar in the summer and take a trip up to Main Street to the country pub food is great and so is the service
Very nice ride till you get to Leetonia.Then it's brick roads and up and down street hills, then you're good to go on the other side of town to Washington ville.
We parked at West Newton both days. On the first day we rode north to Boston and on the second day south to just past Whitsett. The trail is very flat (maybe 3 feet per mile elevation change) and well maintained. We encountered minimal road crossings, plenty of scenery and probably as a whole the friendliest people we've ever encountered on a bike trail. We'll be back!
For a baseline, our home trails are Pine Creek and Buffalo Valley and our favorite trail is the Northwest Lancaster.
On Thursday, 8/24/23, Connellsville PA (and surrounding area) was hit hard by a storm. They were without power for more than 2 days. Businesses were closed etc. HUGE CLEANUP on the trail and even BIGGER THANK YOU TO THE CREW who cleaned it up!!! We had plans to ride the GAP (Connellsville to Ohio Pyle and back) on Friday 8/25. We saw that the electricity was out in town but still thought we would chance it and take the ride. Well....the tree damage was so extensive on the trail, we made it 5 miles with lifting our bikes, climbing over and under trees when we decided to turn back. We had hope that "maybe this is it" each time we lifted our bikes. But another 100 yards (or less) and another huge obstacle. It truly was a mess-the trail took an extensive hit and all we could think about were the poor volunteers who would face this scene with chain saws in hand! THANK YOU TO THEM and ALL RTT Volunteers and donors. We returned to the trail on 9/4. It was cleaned up and wide open. Yes, there are some new ruts and bumps caused by the fallen trees but those volunteers worked a miracle in a short time frame. THANK YOU from a regular user of the GAP and trails across the US.
We stayed in Confluence and rode 30 miles each day from this trail head, which captured beautiful scenery. This trail is stunning, alongside the river the whole time. Ohiopyle was perfect for a coffee or lunch stop! Stayed at Paddlers Lane retreat which was a perfect oasis of calm and tranquility.
Rode this trail today. It was a very interesting trail to say the least. It is rather smooth, just a few hiccups. I would consider it to be a challenging trail. Another of turns, ups and downs, but overall a fun ride
Trail is maintained very well on a weekly basis, but… mile 0-5 have deteriorated over the past 3-4 years to where you are in for a very bumpy (and unsafe) ride. Gaps in the asphalt are extremely jarring to both rider and bike and make for an unpleasant ride. Some sections have been filled in, creating just as jarring humps on trail. Some gaps are an accident waiting to happen. Trail has many loyal users who deserve better to happen. Trail has many loyal users whichdeserve
We spent 4 days, Pittsburgh to Cumberland. Each day was a little different as far as scenery. The trail was in great condition. My favorite was the last day, it had the eastern continental divide and the Mason Dixon line. Crisscrossing the railroad plus the best views that day. Also mostly downhill! Be sure to have good front lights as the last day you go through some tunnels and a few were almost pitch black and too short to get yours eyes adjusted.
Trail is along the main street through the center of the town of Oakmont, which has a very pleasant ambience. It should be noted that there are signs that say bicycles are not allowed.
On a weekend trip recently jogged a few miles starting out at the Roundabout Brewery and going three miles up and three miles back past the two stadiums. Good paved trail with a good amount of tree cover and shade. Was a slight detour at the Clemente Bridge, which is under construction.
Only negative was, there several homeless people that have there tents right off of the trail.
Rode Montour Trail connector to Oakdale - about 10 miles. Trail in great shape. Recommend Hunner's Pizza in Sturgeon and Helicon Brewing in Oakdale - both on the trail. Saw many other places along the trail. Trail well marked. Trail is flat in this section except going up the connector.
