Karl Boyes Multi-Purpose National Recreation Trail

Great Trail for an ebike ride!

July, 2021 by dan380

My wife and I are traveling the country with some of the ebikes from our rental fleet in our Riverside Retro RV Bunkhouse Travel Trailer, specifically to ride our nation's bike trails. This was the second stop on our inaugural trip, and what a great stop it was! We stayed at Sara's Campground and were able to ride our Rad Power Bikes to the trailhead directly from the campground! Even though we were on ebikes - I was on the RadRover and my wife was on the RadMini - we kept our Pedal Assist to low levels and stayed in lower gears to get a nice burn going. This trail is beautiful, with many opportunities to stop along the way and take in the scenery, including the beaches along Lake Erie. I highly recommend adding this trail to your bucket list!

Rail 66 Country Trail

Summer Ride 2021

July, 2021 by vicki1960

Trail is well shaded on a warm summer day. Tree lined for most of the trail length and some open areas of farmlands/fields as well. The pavement on this trail is in very good condition as it's only a few years old. Great ride as always. Biked from Leeper to Marienville and back, 30 miles round trip.

Cold May Ride

We practically had the trail to ourselves. Seen so many birds, even an eagle. Lots of deer too. Beautiful park and will recommend this trail to anyone we know who rides.

Knox Kane Rail Trail

New Segment to Lantz Corners

April, 2021 by seeyajohn

We have biked and walked the trail from Mount Jewett to the bridge and enjoyed it very much. Today I had a chance to walk a portion of the trail starting at Lantz Corners and heading to Mount Jewett.

The trail makes for easy walking but would be a challenge for a road bike. It has some large gravel and is slightly bumpy in some spots. There are plans to improve that section. In the meantime, it makes for a nice 15-mile round trip walk from Lantz Corners to Kinzua Bridge State Park and back. Mount Jewett makes a great place for breakfast, lunch or both. There is a campground (High Pines) across the street from the trailhead at Lantz Corners.

Walked on part yesterday. Wouldn’t want to walk on it when grasses grow tall. Too bad trail couldn’t be cleared because it is beautiful. Bald eagles flying down river. Found old bridge pier where road separated from railroad.

Rail 66 Country Trail

Early March 2021 Ride

March, 2021 by vicki1960

Unseasonably warm Winter day, early March 2021. There was so much snow on the trail these past few months, up to a foot deep in sections, but some of it is finally melting off enough to ride part of the trail. The lower miles 1 thru 8 were clear of snow and able to ride on. At mile 9 and to the end it's ice and snow covered and unpassable. Give it some time to melt of!
Parked at mile 7 in Lucinda and met with others that stated they tried to bike to the North and had to come down to the Southern section to ride.

Karl Boyes Multi-Purpose National Recreation Trail

End of February 2021

March, 2021 by vicki1960

The last week of February we had a warm up and some of the lake had started to thaw. Most of the foot of snow had been melted off. Always great to see different weather changes on the Peninsula.

Karl Boyes Multi-Purpose National Recreation Trail

February 2021 Ride

February, 2021 by vicki1960

A few mile section of this trail has been snowplowed providing the opportunity to take in a Winter ride. Though the temp was a mere 20 degrees, the sun was out and there was barely any wind. The lake and bay had just frozen this early in February. It does not freeze every year. Also ice dunes had formed on the Lake (Lake Erie) side of the Peninsula. Ice dunes do not occur every year. The section of the trail which was plowed was at the State Park entrance and out a few miles. Still able to get in a decent ride and enjoy a beautiful Winter in the park via bicycle.

Springville Pop Warner Rail Trail

Not for Cross Country Skiers

January, 2021 by mbeatty1

This is a beautiful trail, very well groomed and serene surroundings. If the rating was for those issues, I would give it a 5 star, HOWEVER, if you wish to use it for cross country skiing, you will be assaulted w/ the sounds, smells and close encounters w/ snowmobiles, and, if my experience on Sunday is any indicator, many of them. This greatly compromises the experience if you are hoping for a quiet, fresh air commune w/ nature type of skiing. I definitely will not be going back. Please understand, I am not dissing snowmobiles, just saying they are incompatible w/ Xcountry skiing, at least on this trail,
