Walked the trail on May 15th. It looks like they did alot of work on drainage, more stones and fencing. Well taken care of and a beautiful view.
May 2021- Spring ride. Biked from Franklin and traveled South to Sunnyslope and back for a 25 mile round trip ride. Beautiful day for a nice ride along the trail. This trail is asphalt paved. We started in Franklin and saw Belmar Bridge approx 5 miles into the ride, traveled 3 more miles to Indian God Rock. 2 more miles thru Brandon and another 2 to Sunnyslope.
Then headed back.
The trail is in 2 sections. A north and south section. In between these 2 portions is Morgantowns' downtown Caperton Trail. You can ride the entire Mon River Trail by using the 6 mile Caperton Trail as a connector. Bringing the total mileage to around 30miles one way.
The entire trail is currently maintained very well. Any bike should be able to easily traverse it. No downed trees or unkept areas. The path was very packed down and smooth for not being asphalt. A gravel/road bike would have no problem. I was able to maintain a consistent speed I normally have on asphalt.
There is a parking area for around 5 cars that's almost exactly in the middle of the trail, east of I-79 bridge. Morning could be a 30mile round trip to do the south section. Grab lunch back at your car. Then head north for another 30 miles doing the Caperton Trail and North section of Mon River Trail.
We started at Clairton today, spent about 2 miles on trail, were thrust onto the highway, and the rest was "share the road" back roads without much traffic, but definitely not a trail ride. Disappointing. We turned around after about 7 miles, drove to Peters Twp and picked up the trail there.
That part was much better! Nice trail, shaded ride, places to rest, and plenty of people to greet as you pass by.
Just a pleasant short out and back walk. Trail is in excellent condition, scenery represents the area well. A very slight slope should no be much of an issue for anyone. Including children. Easy to find with ample parking nearby. Benches along the way if you need to rest or just want to take a enjoyable break. At a easy pace, about an hour to cover the out and back, add the lakes into the mix and you've got a really nice workout walk. Great way for the family to spend a few hours together outside
The trail is wonderful. I feel safe and comfortable while enjoying beautiful scenery. I love going as long or as short a ride as I want each time. The only frustrating part is the poor drainage in the section located in Baldwin Borough. The ponding is in such a small area one would think it could be addressed without major infrastructure changes. The question is why it not corrected?
This is walk has many different tree species on it as well as being in the quaint downtown of Oakmont. Small shops to visit, great restaurants and friendly people. The trail is great for an evening walk.
Armstrong Trail is across the road from the parking lot for the Cowanshannock Trail, you can take a easy hike on the crushed gravel with the site of the river which runs beside it. If you go in Early Spring bundle up the wind off the river is icy cold¿ but sight is pretty.
Closed for construction since March 8th no indication of when it will reopen. Really looking forward to hiking it since others said there are some pretty sights. To compensate the Armstrong Trail is across the road from the parking lot you can hike on the crushed gravel with the site of the river which runs beside it in the meantime.
I have done this trail a few times. I usually start near the college & go to Saylor Park, then back again. Stop by Sheetz along the way for a drink. I like the scenery.
First time on this leg of the trail. Found the parking lot very easily I think it was about 2 miles east of the bridge which crosses the Ohio river. Nice signs at exit showing were the parking lot was located. Very large parking lot but no where to change clothes. Heading east first couple miles were packed gravel then paved nicely for the rest of the trail. Lots of rest stops and scenery here. Long climb up Midway then to to McDonald bridge / trestle where I rode on the panhandle connector at nice picnic table rest stop. 22 miles to this point decided to head back to Weirton. I also went on the unimproved section toward town. Maybe someday the trail will go to the ohio river.
This is my go to trail. Southern end is in Braeburn. Northern end is under bridge. Soon the trail will go past the bridge to connect to Kiski junction, running alongside the Baker Trail. Great to hike in all seasons and to bike when the weather is good.
