This is a wonderful trail in a beautiful area. It would not be a destination trail because of its short distance (15 mi.) and lack of defining features (no tunnels, just one small trestle). It's basically Punxsutawney in the middle of two seven-mile spurs - one to Winslow to the east and Valier to the west.
The trail is crushed limestone and I rode it with my road bike with 700x32c tires and could have been smaller. There are no facilities on the trail (food, water, restrooms - although you are in a forest) but you are never more than seven miles from Punxs'y. The on-street portion in Punxs'y is poorly signed and my experience mirrors with many reviews.
The western portion is basically flat and follows the Mahoning Creek which is beautiful. It also passes a number of abandoned coke ovens in the hillside worth stopping and exploring. The eastern portion follows the Mahoning as far as Cloe. Leaving the parking lot one needs to go straight on Cloe-Rossiter Road for about 200 yards just past Cloe Lumber where the trail continues. The last four miles average 2% grade uphill which can be taxing for some users but it sure makes a nice ride back. This portion is also in a deep forest with no sign of human activity - very peaceful and serene.
On the spring day I rode I saw about a dozen other riders/walkers on the portion to Valier. Past Cloe, I saw no users on the Winslow portion.
This trail is well-kept and is pretty, particularly along the Mahoning Creek. The locals should be and are proud of their trail. Users just need to be aware that there are no facilities on the trail but plenty in Punxsutawney.
Just a pleasant short out and back walk. Trail is in excellent condition, scenery represents the area well. A very slight slope should no be much of an issue for anyone. Including children. Easy to find with ample parking nearby. Benches along the way if you need to rest or just want to take a enjoyable break. At a easy pace, about an hour to cover the out and back, add the lakes into the mix and you've got a really nice workout walk. Great way for the family to spend a few hours together outside
The trail is wonderful. I feel safe and comfortable while enjoying beautiful scenery. I love going as long or as short a ride as I want each time. The only frustrating part is the poor drainage in the section located in Baldwin Borough. The ponding is in such a small area one would think it could be addressed without major infrastructure changes. The question is why it not corrected?
Was a great run visiting from out of town, easy to find trail head. Main trail is wide and fine limestone. Fun little Spurs that allow you to run more single trek along old trails that are slowly over growing. Will definitely come here again next time I’m in the area.
This is walk has many different tree species on it as well as being in the quaint downtown of Oakmont. Small shops to visit, great restaurants and friendly people. The trail is great for an evening walk.
Armstrong Trail is across the road from the parking lot for the Cowanshannock Trail, you can take a easy hike on the crushed gravel with the site of the river which runs beside it. If you go in Early Spring bundle up the wind off the river is icy cold¿ but sight is pretty.
Closed for construction since March 8th no indication of when it will reopen. Really looking forward to hiking it since others said there are some pretty sights. To compensate the Armstrong Trail is across the road from the parking lot you can hike on the crushed gravel with the site of the river which runs beside it in the meantime.
I have done this trail a few times. I usually start near the college & go to Saylor Park, then back again. Stop by Sheetz along the way for a drink. I like the scenery.
This is my go to trail. Southern end is in Braeburn. Northern end is under bridge. Soon the trail will go past the bridge to connect to Kiski junction, running alongside the Baker Trail. Great to hike in all seasons and to bike when the weather is good.
Went for a ride 3-27-2021 from the bike parking to redbank and I loved it. Crushed gravel trail makes for a small bit of drag but still very easy. I'll be returning more often.
I live in Pittsburgh and have been on the Montour Trail many times. It is one of the most incredible rail trails in the middle of an urban area in the United States and deserves the many accolades it has received over the years. It is a relatively flat, easy ride and although there are still some areas where you have to be on the street for a bit, it is, for the most part, just plain beautiful rail trail that can be enjoyed by all. I'm hoping that safer street connections can be made from downtown Pittsburgh (hooking up the Three Rivers Heritage Trail) to the Coraopolis Trail Head and from the Clairton Trail Head to The Great Allegheny Passage in McKeesport. That would create an 80 mile (or thereabouts) biking loop that would be absolutely world class. Given the extent of community work that has gone into and created the Montour Trail, the above scenario is probably in the cards at some point. Kudos to all of the amazing people who have made the Montour Trail possible and continue to support it today.
I've lived in Pittsburgh for three years, so I've had the privilege of biking this trail often. I enjoy every part of it. The amenities in the downtown area are wonderful and there are plenty of places to enjoy incredible scenery, visit historic landmarks and enjoy the Allegheny, Ohio and Monongahela Rivers. There are also many excellent places to stop and eat on the Southside and in The Strip. Ongoing work on the trail will ensure a nice loop in the days ahead with new parklands and bridge-crossings planned to make the biking or walking better. This is, without a doubt, one of the great urban trails and is enjoyable year round.
