The reviews of this trail are true. Pa side is well maintained and very nice. Got to the Ohio line and turned around. Caution , you will get a flat tire ! This was a nice trail when it was new and looks like Ohio side has never had anything done since it was new. What a shame !!!
A numberof us got together for a group ride on a beautiful fall day. Though a little on the cool side, it was nice out in the sun.
Some of the leaves were beginning to change colors.
We biked from Belmar to Van and back, and then some, down towards Fishermans Cove. Total for the day was 22 miles.
Always a great ride on this trail.

I would recommend this trail to anyone who wants a well maintained trail with a slight incline. Thanks to the volunteers.
There’s nothing really special about this trail as mentioned by other reviewers. It runs through the urban part of Wheeling and parallels Rt 2 in sections so closely that you almost feel like you’re riding on the shoulder of the road. The other trails in the region such as the Panhandle, Montour, or GAP have more of the scenery and character which we enjoy.
A group from the local trail association had a group ride. We enjoyed ourselves. Lot's of goldenrod fields along the trail and some leaves are beginning to change. Saw the osprey in their nest and one of the many Eagles that reside in the park. The new Children's Playground has been set up but is not open.
Love the trail, but surface could use a little TLC though, many gravely spots for folks with three wheels on the ground.
Brings back a lot of childhood memories, I was always riding my bike on this trial, started the trial in West Newton, PA!!!
Parked in Franklin at the Saltbox visitor center and biked to just South of Brandon and back which is 12.5 miles each way. Nice asphalt pavement the entire way.
At the 12.5 mile marker the asphalt ends. To continue on the trail you have to take a bumpy gravel dirt road for a few miles then the trail does pick up again at the Kennerdell tunnel for more miles of asphalt.
Basically flat trail follows the Allegheny River.
From Franklin the Belmar Bridge is approx 5 miles and go another 3.5 miles for Indian God Rock, on the National Register of Historic places.
There are no services along the trail so take plenty of water and / or snacks.
A nice 25 mile round trip is from Franklin to where the asphalt ends, and back. Franklin PA is mile 0.
We have done this trail multiple times and have always been thrilled with the greenery and condition of the asphalt. At mile five don’t miss the opportunity to take a quick jaunt down to the historic covered bridge.
Normally trails from rails are great for our disabled son, who walks with some difficulty. Not this one. It was eroded and rutted, making for a very uneven and difficult walk. There is abundant poison ivy on at least one side of the trail for much of its length. And everywhere the trail is overgrown with invasive plant species, honeysuckle and bush honeysuckle, English ivy, Japanese knotweed, etc. The electric company had massacred the trees along the side where the electric lines run. All in all, it was a mess, narrow, pitted, and not pretty. Honestly, the walk down from the top of the trail along the adjacent street was far more enjoyable. We'll never go back to this trail again.
I love walking on the Panhandle Trail and have been doing so for well over a decade. I usually start where the trail intersects with Scotch Hill Road and walk to Sturgeon and beyond. Unfortunately, the rains this year have washed away much, and in some places all, of the crushed stone between Scotch Hill Road and Sturgeon, so now I start at Sturgeon and walk to McDonald and beyond. It would be great if the aforementioned section could be fixed.
