Lycoming Creek Bikeway

I've biked it several times from Hepburnville to Wendy's and back. Comes out to close to 30 miles round-trip. Real nice riding along the river across from Williamsport city, Williamsport side.

Buffalo Valley Rail Trail

Biking - middle of trail is best - lots of road crossings, far West and East not for kids

August, 2020 by curlybrian

Biking: Recommend starting at Lewisburg end as there is a slight, but noticeable, uphill about 75% of the way West. Better to have downhill on the way back. If you are starting at the Lewisburg end I highly recommend parking at the lot along the trail via N 15th St. The downtown park suggested in the description costs, as of 8/2020, a quarter coin only per 45 minutes (Mon-Sat) and starts you in a heavy pedestrian and road traffic area. N 15th St starts you past the Western busy streets (inc. Rt 15!). If you want a shorter trip, to avoid most of the walking traffic, and to get the very best of the trail then start at the lot where Beaver Run Road crosses the trail. Head West, and turn around when you hit asphalt. Restrooms at 15th St parking lot on the East end, and nearly at the end of the West end. There is a big park at the West end for picnicking, didn't see any other non-commercial tables.

Rating of 4 stars is based on the middle 6-7 miles of the trail, the scenery is pretty but pretty much just farms. The far ends have busy roads and unshaded asphalt. One road to cross near West end is 50mph+ traffic. Unlike other trails, nearly no cars slow or stop for crossing bike traffic. Parents, the ends are not recommended for children. The middle is mostly beautiful farm land with about 50/50 shade and sun. Lots of crossings (20?) in the middle, but all are side roads or farm driveways giving glimpses of nice Amish farms.

4th St at the West end has a covered bridge 1/4 mile off the trail. It looked like there was at least 3 brewery restaurants on the trail. There is a wonderful homemade whoopie pie, lemonade, and root beer stand near the middle. Reasonable prices, but bring singles since it is self-serve. Delicious and returnable bottled drinks are cold.

Trail is asphalt on the ends and very hard fast packed gray stone in the middle. The stone is dusty, you will be gray if it hasn't rained and passing traffic causes a minor cloud. I'd rate the ride-side-by-side stone trail surface 5 stars for consistency (dust doesn't bother us).

Pine Creek Rail Trail

wonderful

July, 2020 by elj317

62 miles of peace! very well maintained 12 to 20 feet wide hard packed cinder. no potholes, no clumps of dirt to skid in. Well shaded for us on hot July days. Took us three days to complete, doing out and backs of 50,50, 30 miles. Great views of Pine Creek, mountains......a few bridges to cross. interesting informational boards to read at stops along the way. plenty of bathroom facilities, parking areas along the trail. pass through very quaint hamlets if one desires a snack or drink. And....very friendly people. all the locals we met in the area towns were very nice and helpful. We stayed at the Hampton Inn in Mansfield. Very ,very nice Hampton Inn. Went to two craft brewery restaurants...one in Mansfield the other in Wellsboro. The whole area is pretty. Lots of mountains, hills, streams....highly recommend this bike trail .

Roaring Creek Watershed

Hidden Gem

July, 2020 by mfpbike

The parking description on the website is misleading. It is not across from the Aqua office as described. Instead drive past the Aqua Office and watch for a large sign on the left, Roaring Creek Tract Weiser State Forest. You’ll find a large parking lot and restroom. The trail is great. It seems easier to start at the 54 end, some gentle up and down with slight elevation overall.

Switchback Railroad Trail

Switchback Trail

July, 2020 by mfasano1985

Thank you to the previous reviews. They were all very helpful. My sister and I started the trail in Jim Thorpe. We also parked on South Ave as we were unsure where else to park. The trail head is 15 feet from where Hill Ave and South Ave meet. The trail head has no marker but there is a bench and two small concrete posts. We rode 5 miles to Mauch Chunk Lake. It was a slow incline up. Very doable. You need to watch some of the sections but overall the path is well maintained and wide at some parts for two bikes.

Two notable things....
First: At the very beginning, it looks like the trail forks. Take the right upper trail. The lower one just brings you into a street in town and the mistake will cause you a good uphill bike back (yes, we made the mistake)

Second: at one point you come out of the wooded area into a sort of public works building. Go to the road. The trail head continues down the road, to the right, and across the street and at the top of Flagstaff Rd. Flagstaff Rd is about 100 yards from the public works area. There is a trail sign on the road when you come out of the public works area on the right that points this direction. If you are doing the trail starting from Summit Hill, then come off the trail at Flagstaff and head down about 100 yards. You will over a culvert on the left into the public works area. Head to the back to pick up the trail again.

Enjoy!! We will be going back!

We hiked this trail this past Sunday and it was an excellent blend of developed and undeveloped trails. The trail has many points where you can stop and hop in the water to cool off and plenty of challenging hills to climb.

Buffalo Flat Trail

More of a Hiking Trail

June, 2020 by wwwknapp

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.

Swatara Rail-Trail

Good trail, but needs improvements

June, 2020 by davehrobuchak

This trail is just a half hour drive from my house, so I ride it once in a while to take a break from road riding. From the southern main trailhead parking lot going north, the trail is a fine grit surface, but then becomes a coarse gravel surface for two or so miles that is unpleasant to ride on. This gravel should be removed and replaced with fine grit. Next the trail transitions to pavement, which essentially compromises the aesthetic of a rail to trail and should be replaced with fine grit. The trail again transitions to fine grit for a few miles, but finally transitions to soil with grass/weeds. Yesterday there was ponding water on this section as deep as 3 or 4 inches and we didn’t even bother to ride the last 2 miles of the trail; this area requires improvements as well. This trail is amongst forest and a stream, but the nearby interstate highway noise is noticeable. Overall, the trail is enjoyable, but it could use the noted improvements.
