Panhandle Trail

Beautifully Boring

June, 2024 by wj.larkin123

Been at least 3 yrs since I did this trail, probably longer. Took off at Walkers Mill Rd lot and headed west. The part in Allegheny County is crushed limestone, quite decent shape (been very dry here lately), not many ridges, or bumps or washouts. The only unpleasant portion has a mix of old asphalt and gravel, that was quite bumpy for less than a full mile.

Once you reach Washington county, the trail turns to smooth asphalt and is great! Very beautiful, quiet, not very crowded (saw maybe 20 users over 2 hrs). Wildflowers of purple and yellow all along the trail in full bloom. Got close to a doe who was eating trailside and not scared by our presence.

Turned around after 12.5 miles, somewhere past Midway and near Bulger. Mostly downhill on way back so that is nice!

Armstrong Trails

A pleasant ride with historic artifacts

June, 2024 by bruceamiller@comcast.net

A friend and I rode the Armstrong Trail out and back from East Brady to Kittanning in June 2024. Temperatures were in the 90s with some humidity. Fortunately a fair amount of the trail had full or partial shade, even in the middle of the day.
On this stretch the trail surface is good, mostly packed dirt with occasional small or medium stones. At the north end of Kittanning, the pavement was quite rough from tree roots in places. At times the trail narrows to a track when coming to a crossing road.
The trail mostly follows the wide Allegheny River, a change from other regional rail-trails which follow creeks or small rivers. On the trail are a magnificent coaling tower at Redbank, a railroad turntable at Phillipston, and several locks and dams.
The trail passes through several towns, and past clusters of trailers and houses used as summer/weekend retreats. Their boats and jet skis were in use on the river.

McClintock Trail

This is a road and a trail

June, 2024 by bruceamiller@comcast.net

Much of this route is road, not trail. The only trail is the first mile at the south end (Oil City) and within Oil Creek State Park. Otherwise it's road - and some of that is dirt with medium-size gravel.
A friend and I planned to ride the trail in June 2024 using 35mm tires. We turned around when we hit the gravel (tires were not wide enough to ride safely). We drove to the state park, and rode its smooth asphalt trail with partial shade. The trail is slightly uphill to Titusville, and runs along Oil Creek. The trail is just wide enough to ride 2 abreast.
Trail signage is spotty south of the park, particularly where the trail becomes paved road then dirt road with gravel.

Allegheny River Trail

June 2024 enjoy the shade!

June, 2024 by vicki1960

Emlenton end of the trail, enjoy the shade! Parked in Emlenton at mile marker 27.5 (27.5 miles South of Franklin). Biked North to mile marker 13.5 at Kent South or Sunnyslope (take your pick what you call it) which is a 14 mile ride on this section. Very well shaded for most of it. Has 2 tunnels, each several thousand feet in length, bring a light. At Kent South there is a short section of gravel road through Sunnyslope to reconnect to the trail. From Emlenton traveling North you may experience some sections of the trail which are lifted from tree roots but it's not the entire length. Enjoy the ride this summer and soak up the shade, leave the sunscreen at home!

Extremely bumpy from roots under the blacktop

Pymatuning State Park Spillway Trail

June 2024 Ride

June, 2024 by vicki1960

Parked at the Spillway, at mile marker 1. Stopped and fed the ducks and fish. At the Spillway, there is a snack shack and public restrooms available. The trail is approx 3.5 miles in length. We went up to Linesville and back and down to mile 0 at Fries Road. If you're looking for more miles, can take Fries Road (low traffic road) to Tuttle Point where there is a beach and restrooms as well as campground newly renovated after have been closed since 2009. Can also follow Lake Road into Espyville. Beautiful area to ride. We got in a total of 23 miles between the trail ride and back roads near the trail . This trail runs through Pymatuning State Park.

Shenango Trail

late spring run

June, 2024 by daniellecerroni

The trail in great shape. Saw eagle, deer, blue herons. Very dry considering the recent rains.

Allegheny River Trail

Bring a GOOD light, prepare for some bumpy sections

June, 2024 by tmiller48111

This is a beautiful trail with stunning views of the river. It winds its way along the river with remote sections and sections with a few cottages and homes. I rode from the North end of the Kennerdel tunnel, south to the south end of the Rockland Tunnel. I camped in Kennerdell on the opposite side of the river and attempted to access the trail through the North Tunnel Road in Kennerdell. It is marked private. The South Tunnel road has a short trail at the end that will come out at the southern end of the Kennerdell Tunnel. Bring a GOOD bike light. I have a light I use for night riding that is uber bright. There are doglegs in both the Kennerdell and Rockland tunnels at the southern end. Traveling North the South the tunnels are pitch black. The trail does have reflectors on it but the tunnel soaked up most of the light from my light making it that the only things I could see were the reflectors and the occasional bit of graffiti on the walls. A bit disconcerting to be sure. Going from the South to north as soon as you round the bend of the short dogleg the other end of the tunnel becomes visible and the ride is much easier. The interior of the tunnels are 15 to 20 degrees cooler than the outside air so be prepared for that also The other note on this trail is that roots have begun to push up the pavement in spots. There were some 100 yard long sections that were pretty teeth jaring. I don’t know why trails like this are paved when trails done with crushed stone are much more durable.

Sandy Creek Trail (PA)

Spring Ride

May, 2024 by vicki1960

Spring Ride, May 2024. Parked at the lot in Belmar and biked 7.8 miles slight uphill to Van. The ride back was like coasting! The trail offers several wooden bridges which cross over Sandy Creek. One short tunnel, the Mays Mill tunnel, 970 feet, do not need a light. Beautiful views of the Allegheny River from the Belmar Bridge, built in 1907. Also biked down to Fishermans Cove, 4 miles from Belmar. Saw a turtle on the trail. And one deer. No trail services, take water/snacks. Picnic tables at Belmar.

Montour Trail

Great scenic trail!

May, 2024 by behe.amanda_tl

Loved the Montour trail. Easy parking at Tandem Connections. Rode a bit in both directions to see both the National and Greer tunnels. Scenery is great, with a private golf course within view. Trail is well taken care of and provides nice shade along the way. National tunnel felt amazing on a hot day, like a natural air conditioner!

Oil Creek State Park Trail

Great Spring Ride

May, 2024 by vicki1960

Warm and sunny Spring day parked in Petroleum Center next to the Park Office. Very well shaded. Biked to Titusville and back for a 25 mile round trip. While in Titusville also rode on Queen City Trail and rode through Drake Well park. The vehicle bridge in Petroleum Center has been closed at least 18 months and a new one isn't scheduled to be rebuilt until 2026. In the meantime, the bridge is open for pedestrians and cyclists. And as always, our State Parks in Pennsylvania are free to visit.

The trail was in good shape. We enjoyed riding through the Greer and National tunnels.
