Oct 2021. Trail in excellent condition. Views of the trail itself is great. Mostly uphill going east/south. Not bad. Easy to follow. Very impressive. Mature Appalachian forest turns to spacious farm land then a little reminder of the business world on both ends. No dogs or distractions. Several road crossings so keep the kids close. Cool watching the creek fall away from the rising rail trail. Then 10 miles later it comes back to greet you. Ye
Rode this trail twice this summer, once in June and again in September. Beautiful trail. Well maintained and mostly flat. Easy to find trailhead.
Rode this trail twice this year, once I. June and again in September. Perfect quick ride on a sunny day. Nice parking lot with a portable bathroom. Great scenery.
I feel other reviews and pictures tell the story but a couple notes from my 2 day trek on the entire trail.
1. From the north side by the airport until Library it is a dedicated trail that is maintained well and has picnic tables, benches, (towards the middle) 2 free primitive camping areas, and portajohns. Completely dedicated portion is almost 40 miles. After Library the trail bounces between dedicated trail and riding on the road. I turned around at Library…. (Bad reviews probably came from section after Library)
2. The Panhandle Trail Connector has a parking lot right beside McDonald and is exactly in the middle of the dedicated portion of the trail. Perfect spot to ride north section and back one day. And south and back the 2nd day.
3. This is an awesome trail! It has wooded areas, hillsides, beautified urban areas, industry, multiple tunnels, spectacular bridge overlooks throughout, and you’re never too far away from lunch or ice cream or cell service. What more could you want????
I rode this trail out of North Bend State Park North to Pennsboro. It was about 11 miles each way. The next day I rode to Petroleum from North Bend State Park. The area is very nice. I saw a lot of deer on my morning ride south to Petroleum. Petroleum had a nice rest stop with bike work stand, restroom and shelter. It happened to be on a road and in someone's front yard. I went thru the "haunted" tunnel. fairly long, one could not see. Either bring a light or walk. I walked and I still went into a wall.
Cairo was in sad shape. The town needs revitalization. Services will be spotty.
Pennsboro has services but it was a Sunday and almost everything was closed. Horse droppings was prevalent going east. It would be a mess on a wet day. Went thru 4 tunnels, it was nice to break the trail monotony.
The trail is in generally in poor quality. Maintenance is done by putting down 1-2 inch gray stone rock as fill. Too bad the people responsible for the trail do not see how other trails across the country are kept. The Pumpkinvine trail in Indiana accepts donations online. There is a fiberoptic underground line being put in along the trail. I hope royalties help with trail maintenance. A town like Cairo could use some business from trail users. A better trail would bring people.
North Bend State Park is a very nice campground. It is very convenient to the Trail. It has showers and flush toilets.
We rode 6 miles in from west end, 5 miles each way from park connector - did not hit any trail closures. They are working on fibre optic, but we able to get around the minor digging where they are pushing the cable.
Tunnels were dark and covered in slick mud - we ended up walking the three east from the park connector.
This is no place for skinny road tires - gonna need fat ones for the mud, dirt, and gravel/ballast.
Riverbend campground is ideal spot to camp and have direct trail access.
Rode 2 miles from the Shinnston terminus. Trail was in excellent condition to that point. They are presently digging up the trail to lay down a sewer line toward Shinnston. About 3 inches of fine gravel sits on the trail north and is currently un-bikeable.
I have ridden the WFRT prior to this construction and found it to be minimally traveled, and in good to excellent shape. Here is hoping they restore it to at least that, if not lay an asphalt base.
Saw this trail on rails to trails site and decided to drive 1.5 hours to try. I parked in Jewett. It was freshly paved and was able to ride 10.6 of the 11.2 miles. The reason I did not ride the last .6 miles was it was being paved at that moment. I think this trail would be a great fall trail when the leaves change. Most of the trail is in the woods.
There are plenty of shelters if it rains. Also covered bridges, benches, and some nearby convenience stores. Also an ice cream stand at the halfway point in Scio. I will go back in the fall. Rpd1
Biked from Library to Hendersonville and back, mile markers 35 to 25. Trail surface is asphalt paved then goes to crushed limestone, then back to paved, then limestone. For the most part this trail section of 10 miles is in very good condition. Some wooded areas provided welcomed shade on a hot sunny day. Saw a few deer. At about mile marker 30 there is a storage place with awesome old signs, two old firetrucks, a restored caboose and interesting information on the former railroad. Trail services in Library just off the trail, a few places to eat. In Hendersonville along the trail there is a bike shop which offers bike rental and service also has pizza and cold drinks. In Hendersonville is a large trailhead with parking for many. Passed a few small trailheads along the way as well. Great ride on this stretch and will return to ride on more of this trail.
Well maintained, shaded, beautiful scenery and beautiful waterfalls around mile marker 12.
Well maintained. Easy walking.
pertaining to the recent june 2021 post regarding the condition of trail surface, both my brother and i can now say emphatically the trail has received a very nice asphalt facelift from mile marker 1 near Bowerston all the way to the end at the covered bridge in Jewett. The only 1 mile stretch is from the trailhead on Broadway st. in Bowerston to the 1 mile marker that still needs new asphalt. But so nice and smooth and you could smell the fresh aroma of the work. Nice job to Harrison County for upgrading the surface. 5 stars definitely and once again a great meal at the Western Grill in Bowerston. Our bike ride closed out the month of July on Saturday so come on down and enjoy the NEW smooth trail in August and the fall
