We wanted to try a new trail and this was the closest trail with a distance worth driving for. The trail is in stellar shape, well maintained with paved sections at both ends...crushed gravel over the majority. As it’s coming in and out of two towns, lots of crossings, safely identified and set up...just know that. Beautiful Farmland here!! We started and ended in the Madisonburg end as we then went to Rusty Rail afterwards, which you can either walk to from that terminus or drive over to.
The section from Jim Thorpe to Weissport was probably the most scenic as you were riding along side the old canal but also the roughest.From there down to Cementon was very pleasant riding even though there were a few steep grades. A lot of nice history on the trail. I was a bit dissapointed in the Cementon trail head. I guess I expected more than just a packing lot. I am looking forward to riding farther south once the gaps are closed.
Rode with my friends Sept 19, 2020. Started at Pittman’s orchard which was the wrong choice. Single and narrow track and met with lotsa roots and rocks and then the stairs. We made it alive though after encountering 2 cubs by Dingman’s. I suggest an easy start at Hialeah for an easier and more scenic ride. Carry a bear spray too if you decide riding during cooler weather.
About one quarter of the trail is paved, the rest is packed gravel. There is a great rest area about halfway and a small refreshment stand by a local farmer not far away. Can be crowded close to Lewisburg as it was today around lunch time. Many road and driveway crossings, so be careful. Plenty of parking at both ends of the trail. One of our favorite trails!
Exquisite ride. Bring the whole family. Excellent packed gravel trail. We went north to south so really no uphill grades makes it sweet for the little ones. So much to see. Wildlife, history, waterfalls, trains, you really can’t beat it.
This trail has extreme damage at the west end (Slatedale) as of Sept. 2020. Coming out of Slatington it is fine for the first mile or so, but when you get to the Turnpike overhead bridge, the trail surface is large rough stone. Looks like it was never restored after the construction work was completed. Beyond that, it is Ok for about half a mile, then the packed fines have washed away in many places. some people are using the grass shoulder to get around this, but that can be very soft if there have been rains. Not worth the effort to go west of the Turnpike bridge until repaired.
The information ¿ stands for history, etc are great for learning. I’d like to see signs advising walkers to stay to the left & cyclists on the right. I’m concerned that walkers are blind to movement behind them. Rail-Trail surface is smooth & well maintained. Thank you ¿¿¿¿ for this treasure of history Re-purposed!
First I was torn welcher her to give this trail a 3 or a 4. This is a really great trail to hook up Montoursville to the trails of Williamsport and for the most part, keep you away from car traffic. There are some scenic sections, for instance from Indian Park, along side and crossing over Loyalsock Creek. However to me it really stands out as a great commuter trail to get you into the more scene in portions along the West Branch of the Susquehanna. As it runs along some of the busier highways, again keeping you separate from traffic, it has a lot of traffic noise. Once it crosses the Creek and follows a bike lane (unprotected) along Old Montoursville Road, near the Motel 6, the bike lane is drawn on the left side so it appears bike traffic in both directions is to be on the one side. Then in front of “Club Fred”, there is a dangerous crossing of the lane to the right side...it’s right as the Canfield Lane curves up from the plant below it. My recommendation...once you pass the Litho business near Motel 6, stay on the righthand side. Once you hit Greevey Road things quiet down a bit and defined bike lanes are on eithe side of the road. This portion is where it gets scenic passing farm fields before hitting Riverfront Park. It’s an easy to follow, well marked trail. I gave it a 3 vs a 4 as it lacks what most bike/rail-trails offer with a bit more scenery and quiet. I do recommend this as part of the connecting rail trails.
Nice piece of trail, much better than leaving Morrisville. There is a lot of narrow single and double track so be aware if you’re planning on riding a trike or pulling a trailer. That would be a tough ride. Also, really need some signage around New Hope to help with getting through there. Still, it was a pretty nice scenic ride. The trail is in good shape but you can see it could be a bit muddy after rain.
Nice trail bed (not for rode tires), I wouldn't ride anything thinner than 38mm on a drop bar. Short punchy climbs on either ends other wise fairly flat river side riding. Has a nice flow and is not heavily used. Access to the River via camping areas or launch areas are throughout the length of the trail. A short section of single track between Namanock Island & Raymondskill road is not recommended for bikes (both locations have trail access via parking areas). Route 209 has a decent shoulder between these 2 points so you can ride the road. A fun way to check out the river or pound out some miles without worrying about cars.
We followed the app’s suggestion to park the car at Hufnagle Park in Lewisburg, but didn’t realize that shortly after its beginning adjacent to the Park, the trail has a gap in Lewisburg, requiring riders to find their way through borough streets (and across a 4-lane highway) to find where the trail picks up again several blocks away. Much better to park at the lot near 15th street.
One of my new Favorites. But people need to stop littering the trail with used surgical masks and hand sanitizing wipes.
