Pine Creek Rail Trail

Bikepacking 3 day/2 night May 2021 by Paul

May, 2021 by paulz

I rode the Trail solo 62 mi to Wellsboro Jct. from Jersey Shore and back to Jersey Shore. I camped at Tiadaghton Campsite both nights. It was in the canyon itself. No services. Entire site is waterfront. Popular with fishermen. Another access is down an extremely steeeeeep road. I hiked up to use different muscles. Hoffman looked like another excellent site. It is about a mile south of Blackwell. No road access. It has a small Pavilion in a grassy area and mature trees and next to Pine Creek.
A very good informative map/brochure is available from Pawilds.com https://pawilds.com/asset/pine-creek-rail-trail/
Order a hard copy. I got mine on the trail itself. The website is a good reference.
The surface is very hard with cinders the entire length. One level under macadam. Well maintained. All water is routed under the trail. no potholes, ruts or even sticks on the trail. The trail is very scenic, especially north of Blackwell in the canyon. Camping by permit only (tel. # 570-724-2868). My only issue was lack of water availability on the trail. Pump water is "not tested". You may want to bring a filter. Plenty of restrooms and canoe access points but not water pumps. "Hotel Manor" is an excellent Pub/restaurant in Slate Run. Go over the bridge. Wolfe's Gen store is also in Slate Run on the tail. Cedar Inn and a Gen store in Cedar Run are on the trail. At the very end of the trail is Pag-Omar where sandwiches drinks and ice cream is available. You could probably find more spotty services if you ventured slightly off the trail to the small villages.
I was surprised at the number of bird species on the trail. I saw Bluebirds, a lot of Goldfinches, Chickadees, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Robins, Hawks and a Bald Eagle. I was expecting a bear but did not see one.
The Trail follows the Pine Creek almost its entire length. It often follows roads especially in the southern part. A lot of trails follow roads. It is an unfortunate annoyance.
For me this trail was a hidden gem which I did not expect and is 3 hours from my home. I will return.

Pine Creek Rail Trail

The second time around was better because of the weather

May, 2021 by paulruns7777

I returned to do a short (7.25 miles) with my wife, as she walked with a friend because she recently sold her bike. The last time I biked on the Pine Creek Rail Trail it was mid-July of 2019 to celebrate my 55th birthday. It was very hot that day and I was tired, but I still biked my age in miles. This time it was the very beginning of May, the 1st and it was a beautiful mild temperature day to do a short ride. The scenery is amazing starting from the Tiadaghton Trail Head, but getting there is not for the faint of heart as there a small bumpy unpaved road that ends with a big downhill to the trail. I seriously wouldn’t recommend using that Trailhead if you don’t have an all wheel or four wheel drive vehicle!

Union Canal Trail

Lovely trail, quite crowded

May, 2021 by mrychene

We enjoyed the trail and all of the areas of interest. However, if you are not comfortable being around large groups of unmasked people yet, give this one a miss - at least on a busy weekend day.

Swatara Rail-Trail

Just beautiful this time of the year

March, 2021 by karobino

If you are looking for something a little different with variation of trail bedding, this is it! Just enough of a challenge for a workout. Absolutely loved the views and now one of my favorite pa trails. If you are looking for an easy ride for the 10 miles, this is not it. So much to see and a few little side trails for exploring. So another visit can give different experience. Can’t wait to tackle this one again.

Schuylkill River Trail

great trail

March, 2021 by ford6668

Started at the trail end near Phoenixville did 11 miles towards Oaks. It was a beautiful day and not many people on trail. Most of the way the views were great and trail was very wide. Some hills but not to bad.

Lackawanna River Heritage Trail

Judy

March, 2021 by judyjaymes1

Just recently biked the Jermyn to Mellow Park section of the trail. It was beautiful and well maintained. Only issue was PARKING at Jermyn trailhead. I don't know where there would have been alternate parking nearby since the few assigned spaces were taken ( including some spots through the gate along the side of trail) (???) I parked, probably illegally, on the road adjacent to parking area.

Conservancy Narrow Gauge Rail Trail

Crusty Snow, Cold Air, Pleasant Walk

March, 2021 by hp98512

Nice drive up out of the Susquehanna Valley, easy to locate trailhead with good parking. Trail is level, (signs say bikes okay on rail grade only - today we are on foot). Trail is wooded, a couple of side loops for interpretive and conservation information. There were 6 or so inches of snow with a frozen crust that broke through every 6th step or so, but it was quite enjoyable, and this early March Saturday afternoon we had it all to ourselves. We will come back later this spring and see how it looks with leaves. I held back one star because I prefer more rugged trails, but today this was just the thing.

Swatara Rail-Trail

Rough ride at Lickdale

November, 2020 by tatiana.royer

My husband and I started our journey on this trail at the Lickdale trailhead. I do not recommend starting there since trail for the first mile is very large gravel, making this a very bumpy ride. This section isn’t a rail trail , in our opinion. After this first mile the trail is either macadam (old road bed) or fine packed gravel. We rode to Sand Siding trailhead and back, approximately 10 miles. This is a beautiful trail with minimal traffic on a warm autumn Sunday. My rating of this trail would be higher if it was not for that first mile!
