Panhandle Trail

warning.

May, 2020 by jlhendricks1965

We ride multiple times per week between Oakdale and Burgettstown. This morning we decided to do the short ride between Oakdale and Rennerdell and then head to McDonald. By the time we got to Greggs Station both my husband and I had flat tires with multiple holes in them. Something has to be either in the trail parking lot (we normally park across the street at the brewery) or somewhere on the trail.

Panhandle Trail

Great ride

May, 2020 by bksmith45713

Washington County portion is in excellent condition!!! Allegheny portion is not paved with a few bumps. Still good trail to ride. I highly recommend riding.

Deckers Creek Trail

Good Trail

May, 2020 by mountaineer4life

We enjoyed this trail and my wife and I walked and the kids rode their bikes. The only down side was the amount of snakes we saw. I realize that it is spring and snakes are going to be out but there seemed to be a lot of them today.

Montour Trail

Montour Trail/Panhandle connector.

April, 2020 by jlhendricks1965

The Trail currently has an area near the Panhandle connector that is not rideable due to the I-576 construction. You can push your bike thru the gravel to get thru it. (I think it’s around mile 17) Also if you get off on the Panhandle connector it is torn up and rough so be careful. Just last week they added another area of the I-576 construction where there is more gravel that you have to push the bike thru. However when you are 1/2 way thru you can see the Panhandle trail and ride thru the construction road to it. There are no signs there but if you turn left you are heading toward the McDonald station then on to Oakdale. If you turn right you are heading toward Midway.

Panhandle Trail

Great trail

April, 2020 by jlhendricks1965

Other than a few puddles, the ride from Oakdale to MCDonald is awesome. It starts out as crushed limestone and then becomes paved. It’s also flat so once you are on the paved section it’s a great place to take kids to learn to ride or skate. From McDonald to Burgettstown there are quite a few hills so it’s a great workout.

Montour Trail - Airport Connector

pros and the cons

April, 2020 by jlhendricks1965

If you start at the airport a short portion of the route is on Clinton Rd which is a very busy road with no berm to ride on. Definitely ride this part at your own risk. Once you turn onto McCaslin Rd (right past the Dollar General) you pass a few houses and the road turns into a bike trail to Enlow. The trail is paved. It starts out smooth but about half way thru the pavement gets a little rough but it is better than a lot of trails. You are mostly going downhill in this direction but there are several hills. Once you reach Enlow you are back on a road but it’s a nice residential street. When you reach the end there is a 5 way intersection and you can cross to get on the Montour Trail. Note: if you are going in the other direction there are numerous hills and you will get a good workout.

Panhandle Trail

A decent spot

March, 2020 by timmy0728

Parked at the lot near Colliers Road.
Ran East, towards Pittsburgh.
1st half mile or so is hard packed dirt/rocks. Relatively smooth.
Then once in PA, the trail is paved.
Mostly level and only small inclines.
Ok scenary, the garbage dumped on the one hillside is an eyesore, but if you're looking for some used tires...
The trail follows along a stream which is nice. Saw a couple squirrels while running.
So, as always, if in the area and want to get some miles in, give this trail a try.
And you can always tell your friends and family that you ran all the way from West Virginia to Pennsylvania.
Just dont tell them its only about a half mile.
Enjoy.

Beautiful ride along the quiet river. Fort is a good place for a snack/lunch before heading back into Morgantown.

North Bend Rail Trail

varied surfaces

October, 2019 by jtw312

EASTERN SECTION. Starting at the Wolf Summit terminus, I rode 10 miles (and 10 back) on a Saturday afternoon 10/19/19 on an old Schwinn LeTour w/ 27 x 1 1/4 tires. I knew it was not an appropriate bike for this trail but it's what I've got.
Yes, the trail is in awful shape, and the state should invest in its improvement. Even during an especially dry fall, I encountered mud and soft ground frequently. The surfaces really varied. The most common surface was grass, but there were sections of fine stone/hard trail (w/in Salem especially) and sections of single and double track. There were a few spots where gravel had been put over previously-muddy problem areas. But the gravel was too big and laid thick to bike through. In the 10 mile section I biked, there were a lot of paved roads that ran parallel to the trail in part. On the way back, I took those to switch it up.
I will bike here again because I live closeby, the tunnels are cool, and it's remote. I will absolutely not bike here in the spring (trail will be soft&wet and a mess then) or after a lot of rainfall.
