I did this trail twice in a weekend. I liked it.
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.
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
My wife and I rode this trail on Oct 18,2023. We started at the Freeport end, doing the longest incline first to make the return trip easier. That was just a long ,steady, gradual climb. Not hard to do with probably nothing more than a two percent grade. Coming back from Butler was a slightly steeper (maybe 3%) climb but much shorter. We really liked this trail as it follows the Buffalo Creek for much of the ride and it goes through a lot of forested areas and farm fields lined with trees. There are plenty of benches to rest and enjoy the scenery. I think it could have maybe two more porta johns or restrooms. There are plenty of parking areas and trailheads. The Derailuer Bike Shop would have been a nice place to get something to eat or a snack along the way but it was closed for the season on weekdays now. Freeport had no place open to get some food after our ride, and from what we could tell, Butler had nowhere close to bike to for anything to eat or drink. Overall the trail was nice and I'd do it again.
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.
Our annual ride on this trail! Trail is 21ish miles in length and goes from Butler to Freeport. Surface is crushed limestone. Most of it was very well packed but there were some areas where it was kind of loose so be careful. Uphill climb from the Freeport end. Most of the trail is well shaded. On a hot day, take lots of water! We parked at mile 4 at the Buffalo Creek Nature park. It's uphill the whole way towards Herman. But the glide back is enjoyable, It appeared the golf course is closed. The coffee shop along the trail near Herman was open but it's very seasonal. Enjoyed the ride.
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.
Just completed what a hidden gem of a trail although the restroom was out of order very level nice views of the river 90 percent shaded looking to go back in the fall to see the trees change
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
