Nice scenic ride along the Clarion river and Toby creek

David S. Ammerman Trail (formerly Clearfield to Grampian Trail)

Beautiful trail...the majority of it!!!

May, 2020 by Joshua Brock

We needed to find a trail between State College and Saint Marys as we were meeting my wife’s folks halfway to drop off food and some supplies (the days of COVID-19)...and walla, Clearfield! The directions to the Clearfield terminus are a tad off...we drove right by it. It shows it near/beside a grocery store. It’s actually right before it and the signage doesn’t jump out at you. Once we found it, plenty of parking. The trail as you head west for the first mile or two is more practical than attractive...it happens in places where the rail went through industrial parts of a town. But once you leave Clearfield and heads towards Curwensville, it’s a beautiful ride...some gorgeous scenery...classic farmland and creeksides.

Not a very easy trail, rail 66 is only a few miles away. Recommend a mountain bike.

Rail 66 Country Trail

Spring Ride

April, 2020 by vicki1960

Despite the Covid 19 pandemic, people were out and about safely enjoying the trail practicing social distancing. A beautiful country trail.

Houtzdale Line Trail

Great Ride

March, 2020 by brb1351

This trail is a hidden gem! Small inclined but relatively flat the majority of the trip. The trail head was hard to find. It is mixed right in with some ATV trails. The first 2 miles was pretty muddy and rocky but if you have the right bike it’s fun. Once you get to cen clear entrance in Houtzdale it’s an easy path. We only went to Ramey because it was later in the evening. Which was 14 miles total for us. Will be doing this again but with better, thicker tires

Allegheny National Forest - Tidioute Riverside RecTrek Trail

Beautiful

March, 2020 by janel4333

My son and I have hiked this trail a couple times. It is wonderful. Beautiful Allegheny river views, waterfalls and an eagles nest are some of the many things to see. Would highly recommend!

Allegheny National Forest - Twin Lakes Trail

Great Trail with lots of potential!

December, 2019 by srhayduk

I've hiked the entire trail from end to end. It's not an easy hike. The trail has been neglected for years, but has recently been adopted by a few locals who are working hard to get it back in shape. There are areas on the west end that have been rerouted due to beaver dams flooding the area. Follow the diamonds and look for orange ribbons to guide you. There are areas of heavy blow-down which have been cleaned up, but you'll find yourself climbing and ducking a bit. There's a camp site at the top of the hill that overlooks the valley below and another at Coon Run. Both are great for camping overnight or just a day stop. Most of the trail on the east end has been marked for night hiking as well. During winter months the TL Rec area is closed so you won't be able to park at the campground. You can park at Seven Mile Road, hike 2 miles east to the Twin Lakes Campground and walk around the lake (it's beautiful at night, bring a headlamp). Or you can travel west from this parking spot and continue onto the remaining 14+ miles of trail. There is another parking spot along Route 66 just south of James City (on the left). And a few others along forest roads 152 and 133. There are plenty of natural springs along the trail, keep your eyes open for these, as they are not yet marked with signs. I suggest hiking smaller sections of this trail (out and back) if you have never hiked it. But it would make a great 2-day backpacking trip too! Park one vehicle at Twin Lakes Rec Area (during open season) get dropped off along FR 133 at the NCT trailhead. You'll be hiking almost 19 miles from start to finish, including the two connecting trails on each end.
