Butler-Freeport Community Trail

June 16 ride

June, 2018 by rpd1

The trail is 20.5 miles in length. We started in Freeport and rode north to Butler. The first 13.5 miles is uphill. When you return, you will find an easy ride. From mile marker 16.5 to 20 is downhill to Butler. The trail will end at a parking lot .5 mile past marker 20. The trail is mostly along a stream and through woods. Many people seem to use this trail on weekends. My favorite part between mile marker 17 and 17.5. There are signs that you are entering a shooting range. CAUTION. I guess if you hear a bullet coming you are to duck. You will also bike past a small shop for bicyclists at marker 15.9. At the highest point on the trail at 13.3 is a historical sign about the area and the old railway. It is wide enough for two riders except between 16.5 and 19.5. The grass through the years has grown in on the sides to narrow the path to about 3 feet wide.

Ghost Town Trail

Decent trail.

June, 2018 by mcfdtony

Rode this from Saylor Park to Nanty Glo and back. The uphill grade from Vintondale to Nanty Glo is challenging at times for the mediocre rider and the weekend warrior.
It's not a bad trail. Smooth, compact gravel makes it perfect for any type of bike. If you grew up around the mining industry, this trail offers very little scenery. If that history interests you, you may find this trail more interesting. Signs along the trail and the orange-red creek provide the backdrop of an industry long gone.
The trail heads offer rest stops and restrooms but between Saylor Park and Nanty Glo there's nothing as far as convenience stores in the little villages along the trail.

Hoodlebug Trail

Nice Trail

June, 2018 by mcfdtony

Drove almost 4 hours to ride this trail, which connects to the Ghost Town trail at Saylor's Park. I started in Indiana and rode the entire 10 1/2 miles. There's a definite downhill feel to it when starting in Indiana. There's no parking area at the trailhead in Indiana. I believe you can park at the IUP baseball field about 1/2 mile away or in IUP lot along the highway. (For no advertised parking, I dropped a star.) As others have stated it's a nice trail with a variety of scenery and a local brewery in Homer City. Trail is well marked.

lovely trail

Rode sections from Nanty Glo to Ebensburg and Heshbon past Dilltown. Great trai with a number of interesting signs on the mining in the area and the status of the river.

Little Crabtree Creek Trail

Beautiful Trail

June, 2018 by pemaquidsunrise4

I grew up near Crabtree and would ride my bike on roads that paralleled the railroad to Twin Lakes. Now I walk the Rails to Trails section that has been completed. Most of the trail is in wooded areas providing a green canopy that is beautiful. It is very well maintained and the crushed stone is great to walk on. There is enough of a gentle grade to give a nice workout. I’m really looking forward to walking the next section to Crabtree when it’s completed. We used to walk the tracks from Crabtree to New Alexandria when we were kids. That section will be fantastic because of its remoteness.

Allegheny River Trail

Biking Adventure to the Winery

May, 2018 by uncheels1710

We went from Kennerdell to Foxburg. The first part of the trail was great. A fun tunnel, nice views along the Allegheny River, benches and white picket fences along the bike ride. After Emlenton, there is no easy path to Foxburg. We wanted the winery to be our midway point, so we trudged through the undeveloped trail from Emlenton to Foxburg Winery. If this path ever gets paved, remove trees, and overall maintained, this route would get 5 stars.

Coal & Coke Trail

Trail from Mount Pleasant to BridgePort

May, 2018 by cybert2

Parts of the Trail from Mount Pleasant to BridgePort are terrible. Large section of the trail is basically large gravel instead of crushed gravel making it very hard to ride a bike on. Also some of the benches are covered with weeds. Trail used to be very nice. Hopefully it will get better soon

Brooke Pioneer Trail

First time on this trail

May, 2018 by pflux1950

I parked in Wellsburg and biked toward Wheeling since this is the direction I was traveling from. I had a little trouble finding the parking lot and the start of the trail isn't visible from the road. The lot is a sharp left turn into a dirt area and is not well marked. After I got on the trail I noticed locals parked in a gas station a little beyond the trail head. The trail is a pleasant easy ride on asphalt that is tree covered and shaded most of the way. There are nice views of the Ohio River along the way. There is a Porta John at the opposite trail head about 7 miles down the trail. Though the trail ends at about 7 miles it is still paved through Wheeling. This part of the trail runs parallel to a highway but that isn't a big problem it is worth the ride to see the locks.

Use caution on the Brook trail there are two sections that have sink holes. One is very clearly marked but is dangerous to ride through the other is really just a big dip but isn't marked and can sneak up on you. I still recommend the trail for a bike or nice run/walk.

Panhandle Trail

panhandle trail

May, 2018 by brodylittle

The only highlights on this trail from Rennerdale to Oakdale were some of the different bird species that we saw. There were no amenities, nor were there cute little picnic stops along the stream. The Helicon Brewing company should have consulted an architect and the Robinson run was completely rust colored. I was disappointed to say the least. The only other highlight of the day were the surprisingly good pretzel sticks at the Rennerdale Corner Store.

Wellsburg Yankee Trail

Wellsburg Yankee Trail

May, 2018 by bertaloug

My husband and I came to bike this trail. I believe it would be a better walking trail. It would be great if we lived around this area. It was awkward to bike because we were constantly crossing streets or riding on the road. However, it was a nice little area.

Stavich Bicycle Trail

Nice Trail but Don't Ride it on a Hot Sunny Day

February, 2018 by orangedoug

This was a fairly straight trail from Struthers, Ohio through Lowellville, Ohio and then on to close to New Castle, Pennsylvania. The trail follows pathway of an old electric rail line that traveled between the cities previously mentioned. I don't know if the original line was any longer than the route we traveled and I don't think that there is much chance of this trail being extended in either direction as it parallels a fairly active rail line.

This trail isn't exactly flat, but the length of climbs and the gradualness of the trails grade don't make this trail particularly difficult. I mention it simply because you find yourself comparing the elevation of the bikeway to that of the parallel active rail lines. Sometimes you find yourself looking down on the tracks, sometimes you actually find yourself several feet below them.

I rode this as an out and back on what was probably the first really hot day of the summer. Bring plenty of water, as the only source of water would be in Lowellville, Ohio at a grocery or convenience store. I did not see a source of water along the 10 miles of trail.

Great Allegheny Passage

Allegheny/ CO Labor Day

I rode the GAP /CO this past Labor Day weekend- best bike trip ever. 120 miles from Pittsburgh to Meyersdale (120 miles). Almost flat- never any sense of climbing, smooth trail on a road bike with 32mm tires and fenders. The ride from Meyersdale to Cumberland was easy- downhill the last 30 miles or so. Thanks to all the groups that put the trail together- what an asset to the region.
