Wonderful trail! We rode 15 miles out and 30 total. Trail is in excellent shape. We locked or bikes at Turkey Run trail and hoped to hike to the top of the canyon. Saw some beautiful waterfalls but the trail was closed part way up. Family friendly
I attempted to bike this trail on 6/23/2019 with a hybrid bike but ended up hiking the trail. The trail begins with a narrow, steep ascent from the trail head on Sand Mountain Road. In addition to the steep ascent and narrow path, one needs to be attentive to the tree roots crossing the trail in a couple of places. Once the trail levels out, it also widens. The trail is mostly shaded with lots of wild Mt Laurel along side it. Within .5 miles the Buffalo Flat Trail terminates into the Old Tram Trail.
Not a good view and was muddy for biking
Biked from Black Lick to Nanty Glo, then north, regained the trail, rode back west thru Rexis and completed the "lollipop" back to the start. 58 miles. Excellent trail, nice things to check out on the way, and the scenery for much of the trail feels like Colorado - spectacular !
Went west to East from Saylor Park to Buena Vista furnace, 9.5 miles. Really well maintained trail with lots of old rail and coal mining artifacts as well as the very well preserved 1850s blast furnace. There are several interest market plaques that give you a nice break while you read about the history of the area. It’s uphill going east and downhill back, highly recommend doing it this way!
I ride this trail several times each week. I never get tired of the different views, critters and sounds. Well maintained, good surface and lots of things to do and see at each end of the trail.Enjoy!
Loved this trail! Easy ride with kids of all ages. We started on the paved trail turning right at the Williamsburg trailhead. After a few miles it changed to gravel which was still easy to ride. We were met by a chicken and rooster who came over from a nearby farm to see us. There’s a small ice cream store at the trailhead which was great on a hot day.
We tried to do this trail but could not find the start of the trail (Houtzdale end). There were multiple gravel roads/trails but no markings or designated parking lot. I have never been to a trail where the trailhead was not clearly marked.
My kids did the whole trail and back. Granted we had a picnic for lunch and many breaks. It took us 8 hours to do it. The fun things to cross over and through happen at Newville and northward for a few miles. The rail cars are only at the Shippensburg Trail head. Other than those things there is just trees and farmland to see.
Well maintained, Wellsboro to Jersey shore downhill. Stayed in Wellsboro and can’t wait for trailhead to connect to town. People friendly along the way. 63 mile trail well worth the drive from NJ. Pennsylvania does a great job with all their trails.
Lots of shade.
First time riding this. Very well maintained trail, people are friendly and know trail etiquette! Well done on maintaining this trail! The only downside, it’s 2 hrs from my house, but I will Explorer every inch of it on weekends!
