Rail 66 Country Trail

Summer Ride 2021

July, 2021 by vicki1960

Trail is well shaded on a warm summer day. Tree lined for most of the trail length and some open areas of farmlands/fields as well. The pavement on this trail is in very good condition as it's only a few years old. Great ride as always. Biked from Leeper to Marienville and back, 30 miles round trip.

West Creek Recreational Trail

Trail is well maintained. Several parking areas, both trail heads, along RT 120 and along West Creek Rd. Emporium to St. Mary's is uphill. First 12 MI is gradual grade. Remaining miles a little steeper. Great scenery.

Lowlands Trail

Beautiful, Scenic Trail

May, 2021 by emkellogg

We biked the first 3 miles of this trail (6 miles round trip) from the Wildlife Viewing Area to the 40 Maples Picnic Area. Perfect trail for families. Our kids ages 11, 9, and 6 loved it! The trail follows the river and then goes through a forested stretch. Lots of possibility for wildlife viewing along the trail. A mile in you can bike up to the gorgeous Wildlife Center/Park Office.

Knox Kane Rail Trail

New Segment to Lantz Corners

April, 2021 by seeyajohn

We have biked and walked the trail from Mount Jewett to the bridge and enjoyed it very much. Today I had a chance to walk a portion of the trail starting at Lantz Corners and heading to Mount Jewett.

The trail makes for easy walking but would be a challenge for a road bike. It has some large gravel and is slightly bumpy in some spots. There are plans to improve that section. In the meantime, it makes for a nice 15-mile round trip walk from Lantz Corners to Kinzua Bridge State Park and back. Mount Jewett makes a great place for breakfast, lunch or both. There is a campground (High Pines) across the street from the trailhead at Lantz Corners.

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.

Allegheny National Forest - Kellettville to Nebraska Trace

it does exist

April, 2021 by arisaema

Walked on part yesterday. Wouldn’t want to walk on it when grasses grow tall. Too bad trail couldn’t be cleared because it is beautiful. Bald eagles flying down river. Found old bridge pier where road separated from railroad.

Early March 2021 Ride

March, 2021 by vicki1960

Unseasonably warm Winter day, early March 2021. There was so much snow on the trail these past few months, up to a foot deep in sections, but some of it is finally melting off enough to ride part of the trail. The lower miles 1 thru 8 were clear of snow and able to ride on. At mile 9 and to the end it's ice and snow covered and unpassable. Give it some time to melt of!
Parked at mile 7 in Lucinda and met with others that stated they tried to bike to the North and had to come down to the Southern section to ride.

Lowlands Trail

Not your typical Rail-Trail

November, 2020 by wwwknapp

I biked this trail on 7/18/2020. I initially attempted to find this trail by entering the Sinnemahoning State Park at its south entrance. That was a mistake since this trail does NOT have a trailhead at is southern end unless you wish to bike the park road to get to the trail. Also, it is VERY easy to miss the trail entrance at its southern end. The best location to access this trail is from its northern end where there is a nice sized trailhead parking area. The Trailhead parking area is accessed by taking the 1st road off to the right AFTER passing the Park Entrance at its North End. The Trail is initially pretty flat with a very, very slight downhill grade from the Northern Trailhead and is on a crushed limestone surface; i.e. your typical Rail-Trail. However, at the 2 mile mark where the trail initially crosses over the Park road, the trail veers off the original railroad Right Of Way (ROW) and ascends significantly as it winds its way thru the forest laden with pine trees on a narrow path and then descends sharply back down to the park road. After crossing the park road, the trail gets back on to the Original Railroad ROW. But unlike the trail surface at its northern end, this section of the trail is covered with a rough grass surface for about 3/4 of a mile before the trail makes a very sharp U turn and ascends a VERY steep hill before terminating at the Park Road. Feel Free to reference the DCNR Map: http://elibrary.dcnr.pa.gov/GetDocument?docId=1737237&DocName=SINN_ParkMap.pdf. According to my bike odometer which is accurately calibrated, I had 4.56 miles from the Northern Trailhead to where the trail terminates on to the Park Road.

20 Miles of smooth sailing

October, 2020 by vicki1960

Trail is complete from Route 322 in Shippenville to the Forest County Line. Brand new asphalt paved section recently extended from mile marker 12 in Leeper to mile marker 20.5 at the Clarion-Forest County line.
The mid section of the trail, mile markers 5.5 to 7.5 which were tar and chipped since 2013, has been resurfaced with new asphalt.
Once you come to the end of the trail at Blood road, you can access the Four Seasons Marienville Trail for an additional 6 miles into Marienville.
Beautiful colors of Fall to enjoy on the trail.

Snow Shoe Rail Trail

Very Rough for a bicycle

October, 2020 by vicki1960

Though open to bicycles, this trail is very rough with it's washboard surface and large gravel. I even found it difficult to walk on.
We parked at the Gillentown trailhead (approx mile marker 49) and proceeded to bike towards the higher mile marker numbers. Though it was very pretty, the surface was rough. Some points we got off and walked our bikes and even walking was difficult. We only went out a few miles then turned around coming back to the parking area. We proceed to bike the other direction, lower mile marker numbers and towards the Clarence end of the trail which was packed limestone and much smoother though only 3 miles from Gillentown to Clarence.
We wanted to see the Peale Tunnel which was on the bumpy section of the trail and never made it that far. We also wanted to ride across the Viaduct which is farther out. Found out it's been closed since 2013 and no plans in the near future to open it. It's in very poor rotted condition and would take a lot of work to make it passable.
This trail is mainly for ATV's which you need a membership. It's also open to Equestrians and for walking/hiking.
