On 10/22/20 my friend and I rode the above stretch. It was absolutely beautiful! We were cautious due to the mornings heavy fog and all the damp leaves on the ground. Made the paths edges somewhat difficult to see. The trail was extremely smooth until you get to the Brunswick Waste Treatment Plant, where you share the dusty and bumpy road with big trucks coming and going from the plant. Pot holes were terrible there. But once back on the trail, it was a smooth sail. I believe it was around a 28-mile ride for us.
This is an easy trail for kids. They learn a little history and have fun. One of my kids danced on most of it. The loop is a good feature.
Very scenic route, paved bike path. We went on a Sunday after 2pm and it wasn’t crazy packed. It is true that there are a bunch of hills so be prepared for a workout. Definitely worth a try.
We did about twelve miles of the western part. Really pretty. We will be back!
Did the entire length of the Carl Henn Millennium Trail, starting at Grandin Ave going clockwise. Quite a few stops/intersections in the section near MD 355 but became fewer. Trail is for the most part wide and smooth and well marked with signs and arrows as well as with mile markers on the pavement. Some sections also have a center dividing line, others do not. The section on East Gude Drive is through an industrial area, and is narrower and the least pleasant with heavy traffic, but seemed relatively safe. Portions of the trail appear to be paved over sidewalks that are right next to vehicle traffic, with no buffer or green space in between whatsoever. Few drinking fountain or restroom facilities. However, overall it exceeded what I was expecting for an urban trail, and was a relatively pleasant, safe ride and good workout.
This is a mid-level bike trail with plenty of off trail single tracking. Most of the path is paved. There are some rough areas which is why I say, mid-level. Your gonna carry your $3000 road bike. I would have been very happy on my gravel bike, but I chose my fixed gear road bike. I know! I didn’t read reviews, and I’m kicking myself for it! But I still had an awesome time carrying some of the way.
A hidden gem of diversity and a lot of calmness in many areas. Our first ride on it was in Sept. Labor Day, sunny and 80’s. Looking forward to riding again this fall.
The surface of mostly loose stone dust took a little getting used to as not packed like most rail trails. Was not a fan of the 2 miles of packed bouncy gravel road with potholes, but was doable. Rode from Tatesville to Riddlesburg and back 21.4. Thankfully, small port-a-pot at each end.
We were on gravel bikes (lower tire pressure) which did great. Didn't see anyone for a long time and the ones we saw were on mountain bikes.
Nice to see kept up mowed sides and enjoyed going through the cutout rocks. Some areas had grass in the middle but was mowed. My group thought in areas it was not quite the level trail as described, but we figured the trail variety of surface and scenery made it seem that way. Will do again as it's a great well kept trail, but with a different perspective of what the trail surface actually is.
On June 30, 2020, I started in Cumberland at first light. Bike was fully loaded for a self sufficient adventure. I was on a carbon road bike with 23mm tires. There were only a couple sections where the gravel was soft an pillowy slowing me down a bit to ensure I stayed upright. The key to getting through this brief section is to keep pedaling. The more you pedal the more your bike wants to stay upright. Beyond that the the trail is very isolated in sections. At some parks/ parking lots along the route There are tool stations with air pumps. There are bathrooms along the that I thought were few and far between, perhaps due to Covid and some being removed. I was able to do 122 miles in one day fully loaded at about 13 mph, just interested to see how far I could go. I noticed most others were not moving at that speed. I made the return trip back to Cumberland the next day.
I rode the entire Cumberland Valley Rail Trail this Labor Day weekend. The trail is in perfect condition and is mostly finely crushed gravel with some paved sections. Despite it being a holiday weekend with beautiful weather the trail wasn't very busy.
I started in Shippensburg as you can park at the very beginning of the trail. The trail is mostly heavily shaded with short sections opening up to nice views of farmlands and rolling hills but no shade. Shippensburg, Oakville and Newville are nicely spaced apart giving good spots to rest.
The only negative part of the trail was the last 2.5 miles past the Newville trailhead. It offers no shade, the gravel seems a little deeper there making it the hardest part of the trail for me. I try to complete every trail I ride but you're not missing much if you either turn around at Newville or start there and head towards Shippensburg.
Took my granddaughters to this trail today. One is younger and a new cyclist (training wheels off this past summer). The other a bit older but had not been biking in a while. Very smooth paved trail. Several small bridges to go over and waterways right off the trail. Nice landscaping done by several local businesses. A good amount of benches to take a break on. Glad we found this gem.
This trail is beautiful. You walk and see the colorful wildflowers, birds and can hear the cows splashing in the near by ponds. If your lucky you can stand on the bridge and watch the train go by. These simple pleasures in life might not be for everyone, but for me...I enjoy and appreciate the natural beauty of this trail. Yes, there is a part where you walk by the roads, SO WHAT....This trail is safe, well maintained and LEVEL.
I love this route in part because I grew up in C.T. Hills on northwest end are a great workout. Trail is in excellent shape; no detours. Parking available at both ends. Wear sunscreen because there’s no shade, take plenty of water because there’s no fountains, and be conscious that there are no public toilets on the route.
