Lower Trail

A Great Trail…

May, 2024 by bespo09

Always a favorite trail as it’s close to State College, PA, I rode it again yesterday with friends. Scenic and really well maintained, the trail offers a little bit of everything. Thanks and appreciation to those who maintain the trail—especially at the picnic area.

Great Allegheny Passage

Definite Bucket List Ride

May, 2024 by d_morris

One of the top 10 bucket list rides in the US, easily. And when combined with another, the C&O Canal, you can cycle on dedicated bike paths for 330 miles from DC to Pittsburgh. The 150 miles of the GAP ribbons through pristine forest, past former railway towns being resurrected by all the cycling tourists using the trail.

Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park

Awesome Nature Rides

May, 2024 by d_morris

Whether a multi-day ride from DC 180 miles to Cumberland or individual day rides along the tow path next to the C&O canal, this trail is awesome. And now that much of it has been resurfaced to be crushed granite rather than just dirt, muddy rides will no longer be a problem after and during rains. One of the top 10 bucket list rides in the US, easily.

Huntingdon and Broad Top Rail Trail

good ride

April, 2024 by eisamanj

Did the entire trail with e-bike. Great ride in lowest pedal assist mode! Few areas washed out by recent rains but able to navigate.

Armstrong Trails

Nice trail

April, 2024 by vicki1960

While in the Schenley area, decided to scope the new bridge over the Kiskiminetas River. The historic bridge was recently refurbished to accommodate the bike trail. This bridge is at the very southern end of the trail at the Kiskiminetas Junction where the is an active rail line looking to the South towards the Tredway Trail. At the Kiski Junction/Schenley there is ample parking and lock #5 on the Allegheny River is nearby. Trail surface is crushed limestone and newly laid. Will get more packed down as there are more trail users. Headed North on this trail a few miles. Follows the Allegheny River. In Schenley there are quite a few old factories along the trail but heading North, becomes scenic and peaceful.

Tredway Trail

Spring 2023 Ride

April, 2024 by vicki1960

Trail is 5.5 miles in length. Parked under the 356 bridge at Freeport and biked North 1.5 miles to the Kiskiminetas Junction at the Kiskiminetas River. At this point there is an active rail line with No Trespassing signs. Just ahead on the other side of the tracks is the end of the Armstrong Trail but you cannot get to it. Turned around and went back to where the car was parked and went 4ish miles South on the trail almost to Braeburn where it ends. Nice wide trail of packed crushed limestone. Ok/doable on a hybrid bike. Trail follows the Allegheny River.

Roaring Run Trail

The crushed stone surface was in good condition despite the recent heavy rain. I look forward to visiting again when the trees have leaves.

Butler-Freeport Community Trail

I live in Butler and this is my go-to home trail. I set out to do the entire trail round trip but the trail was closed 5 miles from Freeport so today was only 30 miles round trip.
