Recent Trail Reviews

Ghost Town Trail

RT from Dilltown to the dead end spur for the North Branch of Blacklick Creek

June, 2021 by jessevirago

I enjoyed this 36 mile RT ride and recommend exploring this spur. I found it even more enjoyable than the very pleasant Dilltown to Vintondale segment of the trail that immediately preceded it. The first 4 miles of the spur were great, with some surprises at the end of that segment, i.e. scenic rapids and a section that allowed me to ride just inches from the water, which was high from recent rains. The next four miles (Snitty's Way) were an uphill grade and very sunny with too little shade for my taste on a hot day. The last 4 miles were pleasant and shady again. The ride back down the spur to Vintondale was easy and fast, mostly a slight downhill grade. All in all, a good day on the trail.

Panhandle Trail

Good, with some reservations

June, 2021 by jessevirago

This pretty trail is less than ideal for only a few reasons: 1) parts are gravel and parts paved, which frustrates riders who crave pave 2) it can be quite hot on a warm day, with too little shade for long stretches, 3) it does not parallel a stream or river, for those who prefer to bike along waterways, and 4) if you want to do the whole trail from PA to WVA in one day, stay overnight, and come back the next, the good news is that there are at least 3 motels near the trail's end in Weirton. The bad news is that they're over 1 mile straight up a long hill from the trail's end, requiring bikers to ride on the berm of busy Rte. 22 (or take the longer Cove Rd.) to the lodging options at Three Springs Drive. For those who might want to travel from Weirton to Pittsburgh and stay over, I know of no lodging w/i 3 miles of the Walker's Mill endpoint.

Allegheny River Trail

Emlenton Ride

May, 2021 by vicki1960

May, 2021 we parked in Emlenton and biked North towards Franklin. We went from mile marker 98 (we think, didn't see one) to mile marker 111 at Sunny Slope. This was a 26 mile round trip. During our ride we went through the Rockland tunnel and Kennerdell Tunnel. Tunnels are lengthy, you can't see the other end, you need a light! Great ride except for a few bumpy sections in the asphalt from tree roots. No services along that stretch, take snacks and water.

Westmoreland Heritage Trail

Absolutely fantastic trail

May, 2021 by vdeal

Rode from Saltsburg to Rangos and back. This section of the trail lives up to it's five star rating. If you're looking for bridges or tunnels all you get are two bridges and a road underpass in the first 3 minutes of riding but you do ride along the Loyalhanna Creek for a ways. This is just a very nice, shady trail in the woods most of the time and the trail surface is in good condition. The caveat is that after a few miles you start a long, consistent uphill climb. My Garmin bike computer put it at 3% most of the time and at 4% once. There is one small community, Slickville, along the way but I didn't see any amenities there. After you top out you'll go back down a ways and cross a large reservoir before coming to the end of this section. Of course, that climb means a nice run back down on the way back. I thoroughly enjoyed this trail.

Allegheny River Trail

great trail

May, 2021 by brianfred52_tl

The flattest trail I’ve ever ridden. Very fragrant honeysuckle bushes abound. The only flaw is the .75 mile gravel section. My skinny tire recumbent bounced like I was riding over marbles. Empty your bladder before riding the trail, potties are few and far between.

Cowanshannock Trail

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.

Allegheny River Trail

25-Mile Ride

May, 2021 by vicki1960

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.

Montour Trail

Don't start at Clairton if you expect to go far

May, 2021 by keltic

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.

Mahoning Shadow Trail

Lack of Distance and Defining Features

April, 2021 by barrysherry

This is a wonderful trail in a beautiful area. It would not be a destination trail because of its short distance (15 mi.) and lack of defining features (no tunnels, just one small trestle). It's basically Punxsutawney in the middle of two seven-mile spurs - one to Winslow to the east and Valier to the west.

The trail is crushed limestone and I rode it with my road bike with 700x32c tires and could have been smaller. There are no facilities on the trail (food, water, restrooms - although you are in a forest) but you are never more than seven miles from Punxs'y. The on-street portion in Punxs'y is poorly signed and my experience mirrors with many reviews.

The western portion is basically flat and follows the Mahoning Creek which is beautiful. It also passes a number of abandoned coke ovens in the hillside worth stopping and exploring. The eastern portion follows the Mahoning as far as Cloe. Leaving the parking lot one needs to go straight on Cloe-Rossiter Road for about 200 yards just past Cloe Lumber where the trail continues. The last four miles average 2% grade uphill which can be taxing for some users but it sure makes a nice ride back. This portion is also in a deep forest with no sign of human activity - very peaceful and serene.

On the spring day I rode I saw about a dozen other riders/walkers on the portion to Valier. Past Cloe, I saw no users on the Winslow portion.

This trail is well-kept and is pretty, particularly along the Mahoning Creek. The locals should be and are proud of their trail. Users just need to be aware that there are no facilities on the trail but plenty in Punxsutawney.

Little Crabtree Creek Trail

Great little walk

April, 2021 by twoskies57

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

Three Rivers Heritage Trail

Lovely ride except Baldwin area

April, 2021 by amcmoss

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?
