Great Allegheny Trail southeast of Pittsburgh?

April, 2023 by eshawger

Surprised to see this amazing trail that has great bed and breakfasts along it is not noted as part of the Great American Rail Trail. It sure would help demonstrate more GART completion if it was.

Gateway to Glacier Trail

Good If In the Area

August, 2022 by acewickwire

Parked in front of the Dam Town Tavern in Hungry Horse and rode from there. (Stay on the right side of road until Coram then switch to left side.) The trail description on TrailLink is pretty accurate plus the trail is easy to follow. Started ride on Sunday morning early, certainly is traffic on highway but not terrible, no other trail users on the way out but did see a few on the return. Trail is in good condition, generally wide and smooth surface. It is gradual uphill for the first 6 miles, didn’t really seem like it with except for a couple steep hills. At West Glacier end of trail continued on into Glacier NP on the bike path from park headquarters area to Apgar. Ended up using all my battery power by time of return to Hungry Horse, total of 30 miles. Normally, can go further on the battery but without realizing how much uphill the first part used more battery. Enjoyed the early morning ride with the real treat of riding into Glacier NP and Apgar. Trail does continue a short distance from center of Hungry Horse to the west and across the South Fork.

Pretty good trail

June, 2022 by georjisue

I would have given it 5 stars but on the Kila side it was BUMPY! Having broken my back a few years ago it was rough. If you start a little bit before Kila it would have been perfect! Loved stopping at Del’s at the end in Somers.

Gateway to Glacier Trail

Great little ride!

June, 2022 by georjisue

We have e-bikes (Pedego) and it was beautiful! Definitely more uphill from the start to Glacier but downhill most the way back. It was a bit tricky sticking to finding the trails off the highway but we did it. Loads of fun!

Gateway to Glacier Trail

Round trip from Hungry Horse

April, 2022 by 4cwkp97b6c

We rode early in the season which meant there was much less road noise than normal. That also meant the trail hadn’t been cleared yet. Lots of debris and pea gravel left over from melting snow. Lots of piled snow on the trail near access roads, not great for me on my road bike but my husband had no trouble with his hybrid. Beautiful wide trail with hills that get you breathing hard without killing you.

Great Northern Historical Trail

Nice recreational ride

August, 2020 by suzie.eades

We enjoyed the ride and did it with our hybrid bikes. The 2-3 miles alongside the highway was a bit loud but still on the designated path. Then you drop down and into a very nice path to the finish - we rode back to Somers and enjoyed an adult beverage at Del’s!

Great ride today

July, 2020 by vlc9802

We rode this trail from Toulon to Princeville today. It was great! The path was very good. It is mostly shaded. Excellent. We stopped in Wyoming on our way back for lunch. Ate at 111 Coffee Shop. Don’t be fooled, this is NOT just a coffee shop. The lunch was delicious. And it is decorated all with bikes! Perfect for us bikers. And check out the bathroom. Cute!!! Can’t wait to do more of the route from Princeville going south.
