John C. Oliver Multi-Purpose Loop Trail

Beautiful Bike Trail

July, 2024 by seicats

Enchanting with beautiful scenery and lots of shade.

Beautiful ride
Rather than announcing on your left, just say passing. People start moving left and right and get confused about their left and right. I end up saying "your other left"

Karl Boyes Multi-Purpose National Recreation Trail

A beautiful State Park bike trail

June, 2024 by vicki1960

Presque Isle State Park is a beautiful park located in Erie PA at Lake Erie. Paved trail loop within the park. Some of the trail is share the road which isn't all that bad. The vehicle speed limit is 25mph and the park rangers and PSP do patrol it. At the Coast Guard station there is a lighthouse on the pier, which they are rehabbing the pier this summer. There is another lighthouse in the park, Presque Isle Light, which is open for visiting and climbing and staffed by volunteers, seasonal. The park also offers hiking trails and kayaking, as well as boating, beaches, fishing and picnic grounds. Many restrooms and parking lots along the trail. So much to see and do here and of course enjoy the paved bike path. We visited on a weekday due to sometimes the park is crowded on weekends. As always, PA state parks are free to enter.

John C. Oliver Multi-Purpose Loop Trail

Summer Shade

June, 2024 by vicki1960

June, 2024 ride....enjoy the shade! Most of the nearly 12 mile loop around Lake Wilhelm is very well shaded. A great trail for hot sunny summer months!

Pymatuning State Park Spillway Trail

June 2024 Ride

June, 2024 by vicki1960

Parked at the Spillway, at mile marker 1. Stopped and fed the ducks and fish. At the Spillway, there is a snack shack and public restrooms available. The trail is approx 3.5 miles in length. We went up to Linesville and back and down to mile 0 at Fries Road. If you're looking for more miles, can take Fries Road (low traffic road) to Tuttle Point where there is a beach and restrooms as well as campground newly renovated after have been closed since 2009. Can also follow Lake Road into Espyville. Beautiful area to ride. We got in a total of 23 miles between the trail ride and back roads near the trail . This trail runs through Pymatuning State Park.

Shenango Trail

late spring run

June, 2024 by daniellecerroni

The trail in great shape. Saw eagle, deer, blue herons. Very dry considering the recent rains.

Trail closed at Tare Creek Parkway

Not certain how much of the trail is closed but arrived this morning to discover there was no access at that point.

Ernst Trail

Meadville to Conneaut Lake Ride-May 2024

May, 2024 by vicki1960

Biked from Meadville (Beans Trailhead) to Conneaut Lake, approx 11 miles one way. First 4.25 miles are asphalt paved. Cross over route 19 and go approx 2 miles on gravel section to the Bailey Road trailhead. Continue West using the new Watson Run Bridge. The remaining 4 miles are dirt and grass and follows the old canal. This is very peaceful and scenic. Trail ends behind Conneaut Cellars Winery in Conneaut Lake. Doable on a hybrid bike but a gravel bike would work better. Saw a Beaver Dam, family of geese and various birds. The last 4 miles pass thru PA State Game Lands. Dress accordingly per season.

Niles Greenway

afternoon ride on the Nile

April, 2024 by bos239

The trail was fairly well-maintained sections of the of the trail had a lot of root heaves, which made the riding a little rough. There was a couple of road crossings that had jagged metal supports sticking up from the ground for posts that should’ve been there, if you’re not careful you might run over one as they’re not well marked.

Ernst Trail

Spring Ride

April, 2024 by vicki1960

Spring ride and so much flooding along the trail. French Creek way above its creek banks, into the woods and the fields along the trail flooded. This is due to so much recent rains. Trail is open but high waters along side.

Shenango Trail

Spring Hike 2024 & Flooding

April, 2024 by vicki1960

Mid April, extremely high waters due to very large amounts of recent rains. Some of the trial unable to pass due to overflowing Shenango River. Safety is important! As long as we don't get much rain any time soon, water levels will drop and as always, get out and enjoy some great hiking!

Karl Boyes Multi-Purpose National Recreation Trail

Trail is paved and wide enough, so you will have no problems riding recumbant tricycles. It can get a little crowded with all the park visitors, especially with surrey rentals heading out to the monument.
