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.

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.

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.

Mon River Trail

Mon River Trail (South)

November, 2023 by thejake91739

After going out and back on the MC Trail (only a five mile round trip but totally worth it!), I connected to the Mon River Trail.

Starting at Pricketts Fort, I only went about six miles or so to just beyond the dam before heading back to the trailhead.

That twelve mile ride on a cloudy, late October Saturday afternoon were plenty enough to get awesome views of the Monongahela River, its dam, homes (some stately; some not so much), and dazzling fall color. Plenty of photo ops await!

The trail is hard packed dirt, covered in a layer of golden leaves, and despite rain earlier in the day, it was still smooth, fast, and navigable. I would say it was almost as smooth as asphalt.

I would suspect that because of the continued threat of rain, I pretty much had the trail to myself. My shoes and bike got mud splattered, but it was worth it. The Mon River Trail (South) is worthy of your time, and worthy of its status as a Rails-to-Trails Hall of Famer!

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.

Ghost Town Trail

A great trail for scenery and a lot of solitude

October, 2023 by bestesbrau56_tl

Anyone who rides Rails to Trails and have been on this trail loved it like we have. The trail is well maintained and there is plenty to see like the history, the fauna and the wildlife. We have not completed MM 18 to Ebensburg yet but we plan to. We don't mark a trail as completed until we ride both ways because the view is so different. And this trail is no exception to that rule. We have done MM 1 to 15, then 15 to 18 to the CI extension to MM 9, to Duman Lake which for a 1/4 mile or so is a pretty nice single track. We plan on coming back in the spring when the rhododendron are blooming. Can't wait!

Armstrong Trail

beautiful ¿¿¿

October, 2023 by vickyemberg

This is a really nice trail to ride. It is the closest trail to our house so it’s our go to trail. The northern end it is somewhat desolate, and sometimes we don’t even see any other riders! The lower end is a little busier, but fun! Be very careful between the YMCA and the Mariner around mile post 46. The trail is paved, but very, very bumpy! Especially in the right hand lane heading to Ford City. Bikers were actually walking their bikes through the stretch. I’m

Redbank Valley Rail Trail

No Ballast on This Trail

October, 2023 by grantworld

I did a round trip ride on the Redbank this summer. (As an FYI I ride on 700x35 Marathon Plus tires.) I might suggest this trail is among the best maintained trails I have been on. Even the morning I rode in a light rain there were no puddles or mud. I don’t know why TrailLink says there is ballast. That is very unfair to the folks who have done such a great job on this trail. It’s very scenic as you would expect for this part of the country. And who doesn’t love (2) tunnels! There are also informative markers that are, well, informative and add a bit of local color to the ride. Depending on how much and where on the trail you ride you may need to plan your food stops. For example, on the western end of the trail I continued north on the Armstrong Trail to East Brady for lunch. Bring a bit of extra cash since not every restaurant takes credit cards. I plan to be back and will be bringing a few friends along this time.

Ghost Town Trail

This was on my bucket list

October, 2023 by fujiguy

A few months ago we were camping in the Raystown Lake area and drove to the the trail head at Saylor park in Black Lick. We rode the whole trail to Ebensburg which was about 32 miles. It was slightly uphill that direction. We turned around and rode back to the truck the same day and it was slightly downhill and went much faster. It totaled about 64 miles for the day. So glad we took the time to finally do this ride It was wonderful. Great trail, great condition.
