Lock Haven Levee Trail

A beautiful trail for walking only. There are signs stating no bikes, rollerblading, and no skateboarding.

Pine Creek Rail Trail

Awesome ride. Just completed this incredible trail over two days. Rode Wellsboro to Jersey Shore with an overnight pause at Slate Run. The trail is an easy ride with spectacular views of nature. Can't wait to ride again.

Buffalo Valley Rail Trail

Great Little Rail Trail

April, 2024 by hughes29187

Drove about 3 hours to try this wonderful little trail. Parked at western terminus in Mifflinburg next to the Rusty Rail Brewing Company, which was a great post ride visit, and rode east to Lewisburg. At both ends of the trail are paved with crush ballast for most of the ride. Some soft gravel so stay in the worn track is recommended. Two cautions: watch the gates and poles as you cross the country roads and there is one very small disconnected section once into Lewisburg and need to cross US15. Recommend head north to light (with bike lane) cross and then ride up half a block and make a right. You'll run into trail that completes a few blocks later. Bonus are the facilities at both ends of the trail.

Bald Eagle Valley Trail

Can't wait until this connects to the Pine Creek Trail

December, 2023 by ericdurante

I'm rating this trail for its future potential more than its current condition.

The two segments that currently exist are nice enough, and the trailhead in Castanea is great. The existing trail segments are well-maintained with decent scenery as they follow close to Bald Eagle Creek and the West Branch of the Susquehanna. They can also easily be connected by traveling a couple of miles on quiet roads in between.

When complete, this trail will effectively become a roughly 10-mile extension of the spectacular Pine Creek Trail, creating a continuous path from Lock Haven nearly to Wellsboro.

I spent a few days bikepacking to, from, and on the Pine Creek Trail in early October 2023, and I attempted to use the existing parts of the Bald Eagle Valley Trail since they were more or less along my route. On my way to Pine Creek I took the existing trail segment east from Castanea and then took the roads to the beginning of the second trail segment. I then rode the second trail segment and crossed the (fantastic) bridge over the West Branch of the Susquehanna. After studying maps and satellite images, I thought that it might be possible to exit the trail from the eastern end and continue on a local road toward Jersey Shore. However, the improved trail ends abruptly after crossing the bridge over the West Branch, and I found that there was definitely no way to access any road from this point (especially with a loaded touring bike). The banks on either side of the trail fell away steeply and were thick with brush, and the adjacent land was posted private property. The old rail bed obviously continued east from this point, but it was too overgrown with weeds to ride. I had to backtrack the second trail segment to the bridge on McElhattan Drive in order to cross the West Branch and continue on my way.

I really look forward to the day when I can hop on this trail in Castanea or Lock Haven (or maybe someday even further south?) and travel all the way to the beginning of the Pine Creek Trail in Jersey Shore...

Pine Creek Rail Trail

Wonderful trail

September, 2023 by adouthett

I rode from Jersey Shore to outside of Wellsboro and back over two days. The trail is well maintained and number of spots you want to stop at and just watch world go by.

Some things to note:
Bring a physical map since cell phones don't work. The trail is well marked concerning the distance between location but without a map, you don't know where you are exactly. And there are no maps on the trail.

Wear sunscreen. If it's a sunny day, it can be brutal with the sun beating down on you.

Bring extra water. Aside from a few stores (Slate Run and Cedar Run) on the trail, there is no sources of drinkable water on the trail that I could find.

No shelters aside from comfort locations. If a storm rolls in, you’re out of luck.

Overall the trail is a wonderful and one I hope to visit again.

Pine Creek Rail Trail

Jaw Dropping Beauty

July, 2023 by bretthburkey

Fantastic trail experience. We rode from Darling Run to Blackwell and back on a flat and groomed surface. The trail is well marked. We chose this section because it’s the full run of the gorge. We left around 9 am in mid-July and the trail heading south had little access to the sun. The ride back, with the sun higher in the sky, was spectacular with gorgeous views around every corner. We saw plenty of deer and a bald eagle. An unforgettable experience.
