Arboretum Trail

VERY short trail

January, 2021 by joelkring

Back in 2017 we were biking trails in the Pittsburg area (using the older PA, NY & NJ book) and trying to ride all of the trails in PA so we rode this trail too. It probably took as long to unload and reload the bikes as it did to ride the trail. It is an urban trail so nothing special about the scenery. Like many of the trails we have ridden over the past few years about the only reason to ride it is to be able to say that you rode it.

Allegheny River Trail

Great Trail

January, 2021 by k9copilot

My wife and I enjoy the trail so much we bought a small house in Franklin to spend the summers biking and hiking, We also enjoy the other trails in the area and can't wait for the completion of Erie to Pittsburgh. I have completed the GAP and most of the C&O trails and believe the Allegheny River Trail to be the cream of the crop.

Rt 22 tunnel gives access to Canoe Creek SP

November, 2020 by bikerbabe69

I see very few recent reviews of this lovely trail. The tunnel under Rt 22 is indeed open and allows road access to Canoe Creek SP. The signage to Flowing Springs Rd access and parking appears to be upgraded as well, as another user noted it may have been missing in the past. This under-utilized trail continues to be a year round favorite of this biker.

Allegheny River Trail

Early November Ride-Trail is cleared of leaves

November, 2020 by vicki1960

Biked 30 miles early November. From Franklin to 12 miles South and back then up a few miles on the Samuel Justus Trail.
The trails association, AVTA, have cleared the leaves from the trail. They spent a good deal of time on cleaning up the fallen leaves and cleared the trail nicely.
Unseasonal warm temps and was able to get out and enjoy the trail.

Ghost Town Trail

Wehrum to Claghorn Bridge

November, 2020 by davegoll.occ

What a great section of the Ghost Trail. Wehrum has a large parking lot and is easily found. Only a little over 2 miles from Route 22. No one else was parked there, so there is plenty of room. Trail is very flat and very well maintained. Less than 48 hours since a big rain storm and the trail was dry! Good idea to wear bright colors (orange) since you'll see some hunters this time of year. This was our first cold weather (48 degrees) ride and we learned plenty. Next time gloves and a scarf. Can't wait to come back and explore another part of this trail.

Allegheny River Trail

60k for my 60th Birthday

November, 2020 by vicki1960

Did a 60k ride (40 miles). Dreary and cool fall day with sections of the trail covered in thick and heavy wet leaves. But overall, and as always, a great ride. Biked from Franklin to below Brandon and back then up to Oil City and back on the connecting Justus Trail.

Westmoreland Heritage Trail

great and relaxing!

November, 2020 by j69brdkiw8

Trafford to Export and back! Nice relaxing trail! Stopped at nice cafe (Wade’s breakfast & grille) in town Export for halftime meal! Lots of nice people enjoying the weather and exercise! Well maintained!!!!

Rail 66 Country Trail

Fall ride

November, 2020 by hanzeljames

Was superb ride Just flew along Saw a owl Heard different birds than I'm used to had a great time Gates very bike friendly Trail Surface brand new at least 20 miles Total asphalt is 25.6 mi Lot of road crossings but it is what it is Stop means stop !! Easy 1-1/2 hrs from Pgh
May ride again this week
And there is a DQ at one end lol
How good does that get

Path of the Flood Trail/Staple Bend Tunnel Trail

A little rough in the south end,

November, 2020 by deerepartsgirl_tl

We started the trail from the Frank’s town end biking, the first 1/2 mile was not too bad, but the next 1/2 to 3/4 mile is pretty rough and steep if you are used to a smoother surface, there is a pretty steep hill down and then up to the tunnel, once you get to the north side of the tunnel, the surface is great to mineral point , I would caution if you are doubt this with children you will be going on the road to cross the river at Mineral point, once north of Mineral point, you have another climb and not as good of a surface, we only rode about 1 mile north of Mineral point, so I can’t comment on there north, my recommendation if you want a short smooth ride part at Mineral point .overall a fair trail.trailhead and go sout 2

Lower Trail

fantastic, scenic by River, wildlife

November, 2020 by captinbandwagon

It’s a fantastic trail, scenic by the River and we saw wildlife and it’s in superb condition.

Rail 66 Country Trail

20 Miles of smooth sailing

October, 2020 by vicki1960

Trail is complete from Route 322 in Shippenville to the Forest County Line. Brand new asphalt paved section recently extended from mile marker 12 in Leeper to mile marker 20.5 at the Clarion-Forest County line.
The mid section of the trail, mile markers 5.5 to 7.5 which were tar and chipped since 2013, has been resurfaced with new asphalt.
Once you come to the end of the trail at Blood road, you can access the Four Seasons Marienville Trail for an additional 6 miles into Marienville.
Beautiful colors of Fall to enjoy on the trail.
