Shenango Trail

February 2021 Hike

February, 2021 by vicki1960

So much snow! Parked at the Kidds Mill Trailhead, at mile marker 8.75 and went to mile 7 and back. Well maintained trail with great markings and bridges in good condition. There was a lot of snow on the ground but trail easy to hike on due to trail traffic. Nice trail.!

Sandy Creek Trail

Winter Walk

February, 2021 by vicki1960

February, 2021. A good bit of snow on the trail provided for a lovely winter walk. Though off the trail a good foot deep, it was nicely packed down to a few inches deep along the trail. Parked at the Belmar Bridge and went out towards Van.

Shenango Trail

February, 2021 by joseph_torok

Began hike at the pipeline access point from River Road; hiked 2.1 miles south crossing the beaver dam to mile marker 5. Weather clear and sunny, around 37°. Some snow remaining in shaded areas. Little evidence of recent fellow hikers. Geese present at beaver dam and recently gnawed beaver trees can be seen throughout the area.

Mid February 2021 Hike

February, 2021 by vicki1960

Parked in the lot at the intersection on Valley and North Bend Roads which is mile 0 of the trai. We headed North for a few miles and turned around. A few inches of snow on the trail was easy to hike on. Very well maintained trail. Trail follows the Shenango River, recently named Pennsylvania's River of the Year.

February 2021 Ride

February, 2021 by vicki1960

A lot of snow this Winter but fortunately this trail happened to be plowed this time. On occasion it is plowed, most times it's not.

Samuel Justus Recreation Trail

Winter Ride 2021

February, 2021 by vicki1960

Why not bike ride all year 'round! Though a few inches of snow on the trail, it was passable. Started at the Franklin end and headed North towards Oil City. For the first few miles there were foot tracks then nothing but animal tracks. Trail is flat so easy to bike ride on in the snow. It doesn't appear there is any Winter maintenance on it. But good to see people still using the trail. Just use common sense and be careful!

Moraine State Park Bike Trail

Nice for Winter walking

February, 2021 by vicki1960

A great trail to get out there and walk on in the Winter!

8+ mile hike on trail. Began at 11:30 AM at Kidd's Mill trailhead. Trail still frozen from previous evening. Spotted two mature bald eagles. Deer, squirrel and FISHER sign. Cold 27° but very sunny day; fourteen fellow hikers and four dogs on trail. Finished hike at Big Bend trailhead.

Kidd's Mill/Shenango Trail

January, 2021 by joseph_torok

Began afternoon hike from Kidd's Mill intending to hike 4.0 miles out and back total. Trail was untouched after .5 mile with newly fallen snow from previous night. At mile 1.25 crossing the puncheon bridge area was somewhat muddy but expected this time of year. Lots of deer and turkey sign digging up acorns. Beaver have been busy on the trail; a newly constructed dam has been installed in the feeder stream near bridge number 14. Hopefully it doesn't cause flooding up to the bridge. On return trip spotted a total of five bald eagles; four in one grouping! Eagles just watched us as we quietly passed. No other hikers on a Tuesday afternoon. Trail is in good shape for mid-winter.

Allegheny River Trail

Great Trail

January, 2021 by k9copilot

My wife and I enjoy the trail so much we bought a small house in Franklin to spend the summers biking and hiking, We also enjoy the other trails in the area and can't wait for the completion of Erie to Pittsburgh. I have completed the GAP and most of the C&O trails and believe the Allegheny River Trail to be the cream of the crop.

January, 2021 by joseph_torok

Hiking the Shenango Trail on January 1/2021! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Order of the day; lots of rain. Began hike at 10 AM intending to hike up to 2 miles completing trail work along the way. Cleaned out a number of knicks and sumps. At bridge 1 completed some needed side hill benching after crossing the bridge. Rain began falling about 11:15 AM. Spoke with three fat tire bikers from Warren, Saegertown, PA and Cleveland, OH. Positive comments in regard to trail maintenance; stated they were very happy with trail and intend to return! Shared some history of Shenango Trail and canal. Hiked out during steady rain and completed more work; out by 2PM.
