Houtzdale Line Trail

Parking in Houtzdale

June, 2019 by djmiller9975

The trail is nice from Houtzdale west. We only road to mile marker 9. There are sections of the trail that are all grass, so you'll probably want a mountain bike. The trail east of Houtzdale is all grass and muddy in spots, so be prepared. The Bilo market is no longer in Houtzdale; it appears to be replaced by a Family Dollar. There's a large parking lot, so you can park there and take one of the streets about a block north to find the trail.

Pine Creek Rail Trail

A fantastic resource

June, 2019 by craigs24

It's a beautiful ride through one of the most scenic areas in the Northeast. The State of Pennsylvania deserves a medal for its work building and maintaining this trail. For all of its 62 miles the trail is consistent, very rideable and well maintained. Campgrounds and access areas along the trail are similarly immaculate - they have a strict carry-in, carry-out policy. There are also several villages along the way and general stores where food and water is available.

Buffalo Valley Rail Trail

Wonderful time experiencing farm land and rural area on a beautiful day

June, 2019 by keeperbordner

My husband and I enjoyed the beautiful weather and rural landscape. Passed many friendly people along the way. Bathroom facilities at each end of the 9 mile Trail. Shaded by tree lined trail broken up with sunny open field areas along the way. Great places for a snack/meal either in Mifflinburg or Lewisburg. Also an Amish "serve yourself" stand midway to pick up some lemonade or a whoopie pie. A country treat.
We are very fortunate to have this great local RTT.
I did not give a 5 star rating because the restroom facilities in Lewisburg were in poor condition and the facilities in Mifflinburg were locked but replaced with a "port-a-potty".

Lower Trail

Great trail for hiking, horseback riding, and biking

June, 2019 by angiekeating67

Not only is it beautiful, the people I’ve interacted with are courteous to each other. There is lots of shade making it ideal for very hot days. It’s very flat making it great for people of all ages and abilities.

Huntingdon and Broad Top Rail Trail

Nice pit stop along the PA Turnpike

June, 2019 by bikin-mike

Always looking for a place to take a break and stretch my legs on a long road trip. This trail is the perfect place to do that. Exactly half way between Breezewood and Bedford. Easy hop off the pike and then take Rt 30 which parallels the pike. Trail is only about 2.5 miles north of 30.

The Bedford County folks have built a beautiful trail. The scenery is a tale of two trails. The south end is wooded and passes through many rock cuts. The north end after the bridge follows the river and is open county and even uses a gravel road for about 1.5 miles.

The only loose gravel that I encountered was at about MP 4.5 north of the bridge. Luckily it was only about 30’ long.

Where the trail joins Cooper Sawmill road at the south end I was riding on 1/2” gravel. Said to myself can’t bounce on this for too long. Luckily, it was gone after only a couple hundred feet. Road was hard-packed with only scattered potholes filled with the 1/2” gravel. Might get dusty during a dry spell. Only encountered 3 cars and they were moving slowly.

Trail seemed pretty flat except for about MP 5 to MP 2. Heading south the uphill grade started at about MP 5. Probably only about 3% but very noticeable and the gravel surface makes it tougher. After about a mile I was thinking this won’t be fun until the end. Luckily at about MP 2 the grade reduced and it wasn’t so bad to the end.

Saw lots of kayaks along the river, so might be an easy pedal-n-paddle trip in the future. Looks like a pretty easy takeout in Riddlesburg. Didn’t see an easy put-in real close to the bridge in Cypher, but might be one down the road a little ways.

Great place to enjoy some pretty scenery and stretch the legs before getting back on the Turnpike for my trip from OH to the MD shore. If you just want a short walk, about 1 mile north of Tatesville there was a nice bench overlooking a pond (see photo). Enjoy. Thanks Bedford County and Broad Top Twp for a beautiful trail.....Bikin-Mike 5/2019

p.s. Abandoned Turnpike is another awesome ride in the Breezewood area. It’s only about 1/2 a mile from the Turnpike exit.

Bald Eagle Valley Trail

Nice and easy ride.

May, 2019 by etown4sale

Rode this trail yesterday. Very nice and well maintained trail. Mountain, river and farmland views. As of now it is 2 segments for a total of 5.5 miles. Will be a great trail once all segments are completed and connects with the Pine Creek Trail.

This is a beautiful ride from Newville to Shippensburg! The trail is well maintained an offers scenic views of woodland and picturesque farmlands. We will definitely be back!

Pine Creek Rail Trail

Awesome trail

February, 2019 by dleberjr

Great view of Pine Creek and the mountains. Rode this trail in the summer and in the fall. This is a must do trail for anyone who loves nature.

Buffalo Valley Rail Trail

Awesome little trail

January, 2019 by mcfdtony

I wish the Buffalo Valley Rail Trail were much longer. Being it's only an 18-mile round trip ride, it's hard to justify driving over 90 minutes to get here. That said, I do ride this trail at least twice a year. The BVRT is a flat, smooth compact gravel trail with an equal portions of shade and open riding, good for all riders, all styles of bikes. In Mifflinburg, you've got the Rusty Rail Brewing Company & Restaurant at the end of the trail. I recommend making a reservation and head over to the brewery for a bite to eat and a cold refreshment after the ride.

Pine Creek Rail Trail

2nd best Rail Trail in PA

January, 2019 by mcfdtony

Only surpassed by the GAP trail, Pine Creek is the 2nd best rail trails in PA (IMHO). I've ridden it numerous times. It's smooth, compact gravel makes it enjoyable for all bike types, all riders. This 63 mile trail is best described by dividing it into 2 sections. North of Slate Run and Sorth of Slate Run. Starting at the northern-most end, it's about 25 miles to teh village of Blackwell. This section is mostly open with plenty of scenery. Be sure to bring extra water as there are no places to stop to refill until and limited restrooms along this section. From Blackwell, south you'll begin to ride through small villages that offer opportunities for food and water. Cedar Run is 5 miles away and offers a general store and a small hotel/B&B, another 5 - 5 1/2 miles and your at Slate Run, with another general store for food and refreshments along with a hotel/B&B/Restaurant. From Slate Run, it's about another 26 miles to the end of the trail in Jersey Shore. This section is mostly shaded with numerous restrooms along the way and another spot for food and water.
From the trail head at the north, it's about a 4 1/2 mile bike ride along the road into Wellsboro and construction has begun to extend the trail into town - I'm not sure when completion is expected.
Wellsboro offers additional lodging and food.. highly recommended to stay in Wellsboro.

Iron Horse Trail (PA)

iron horse trail

January, 2019 by davidmaschak

Having seen the reviews and the dates they were submitted I am glad to say that work has been done to upgrade the trail in the summer of 2018. A group of Conservation Corps workers worked on parts of the trail and local
mountain bikers also continue to do work. Haven't hiked the whole trail but a lot of progress was made. Will update when I hike the complete trail.

Lower Trail

Favorite trail of the 6 we rode Oct. 2019

December, 2018 by aeboe

We spent a week riding 6 different trails in PA (Alleghany River Trail, Oil Creek State Park Trail, Presque Isle State Park, Kinzua Trail, Pine Creek, and Lower Trail). We rode the GAP trail last October. Because of my fear of snakes, we do a fall ride, hoping the snakes have all gone to their dens! My favorite PA trail is the GAP. My second favorite is Lower. I found Pine Creek well maintained and beautiful, but a bit remote (for me) and saw snake tracks on the path. We rode Lower (33 miles) the next day and this was my favorite of the 6 this year. Path is well maintained and beautiful(rocks, trees, and stream!). You do hear rode noise during small portion of trail, but I didn't mind it at all. We parked at Flowing Spring Station by Canoe Creek State Park. They are working on connecting the path to Canoe Creek. As a side note, we stayed at Reynolds Mansion (loved it!) the night before and got a massage by Lisa at Cloud 9. It was an amazing way to finish our bike week! It was the best massage we have gotten and such a treat for our bike muscles!
