Allegheny River Trail

Calm ride, great food after in Franklin

July, 2020 by akuchta_tl

Great ride. Very peaceful. Way to get in some exercise and some stress reduction. Many places to stop, especially along the Samuel Justus part of the trail going north to Oil City. Nice restaurants in Franklin.....Leonardo's pizza great; Benjamin's Roadhouse has nice variety also. Have not tried Trails to Ales yet, but was told it was also good. Bella Cucina is good, but for eclectic tastes. Pricey, but that's what I would expect for more upscale dining.

Redbank Valley Rail Trail

beautiful trail

June, 2020 by danieljfrank4

One of the best trails I’ve been on.

Allegheny River Trail

50 mile ride

June, 2020 by vicki1960

A week after the 40-mile ride, did a 50-mile ride. This trail is great if you'd like to get in a long ride.
Parked in Franklin and headed South thru Belmar, then Brandon, Kennerdell Tunnel and Rockland Tunnel. Biked to the South end of the Rockland Tunnel which was 22 miles from Franklin. Be sure to have a light for each tunnel as they are nearly a mile in length.
Great day for a ride. The only section not paved is the few mile detour just South of Brandon to a little before the Kennerdell Tunnel.
The detour is due to the trail ends then you have to go on a dirt road section for a few miles before returning back to the actual paved trail.
It was a weekday and the trail had few people on it but they were friendly. We stopped and talked to some along the way.
Once back in Franklin at a tripometer reading of 44, went North onto the Justus trail and back to Franklin to round the trip off to 50 miles.
Once you leave Franklin, heading South, be prepared with water and snacks because there is nothing until you would get all the way to Emlenton!

Allegheny River Trail

Very peaceful trail to ride

June, 2020 by bksmith45713

Very beautiful and peaceful trail to ride along the Allegheny River. Take a strong and bright flashlight to get through the two tunnels as you will definitely need one per person. I will definitely return from the Pittsburgh area to ride this trail again!!!

Kinzua Valley Trail

great trail

June, 2020 by mikeanddee

Really enjoyed this trail. Very scenic grade not to hilly. Was awesome we could see all the places that the turtles had been digging to lay eggs. Trail was very busy this Father’s Day.

Allegheny River Trail

Really nice trail.

June, 2020 by highwheelguy

I did this trail last year and it was really nice. As of June 2020, there are many tree roots that have uplifted the asphalt (many places). I broke 2 spokes and the front wheel hub is loose from this. Maybe the bearings are loose from the asphalt. I doubt it will be an easy fix if it can be done at all. And it can only get worse over time. Thats the problem with asphalt trails where are trees close by. Friendly people along the trail. Several miles near Franklin are open where there is no shade so be prepared. Starting in Emlenton there is plenty of shade.

West Creek Recreational Trail

nice trail

June, 2020 by mikeanddee

Started at west creek trailhead down hill for the first 6 miles. Made for a long 6 miles on the way back. All and all nice trail, scenery not the greatest.

Samuel Justus Recreation Trail

June 2020 Ride

June, 2020 by vicki1960

This trail is 7 miles in length from Franklin to Oil City and is now completely asphalt paved with the missing section now recently paved.
Great little 14 mile round trip from Franklin to Oil City. I rode this along with the Allegheny River Trail for a lovely 40 mile ride.
Trail services and parking at both ends....Franklin and Oil City.
Trail is flat and follows the Allegheny River. There are signs of old oil wells along the trail and in some areas you can actually smell the oil in the soil.

Allegheny River Trail

40-Mile Ride, June 2020

June, 2020 by vicki1960

Parked at the Saltbox/Trailhead on Route 322 in Franklin. Biked from Franklin to South of Brandon where the asphalt ends and gravel section starts. The gravel section is approx 1.5 miles in length detouring around the trail. From Franklin to this point is 12.5 miles. Biked back up to Franklin for a nice 25 mile round trip. To get the additional miles in, once in Franklin jumped on the Samuel Justus trail into Oil City and back.
Great Saturday for a ride. Good amount of people out on the trail as well as enjoying the Allegheny River which follows the trail.
As far as trail services, once you head South out of Franklin there is nothing so be prepared with water and snacks.
Some trail highlights are 5 miles South of Franklin is the Belmar Bridge which is the Sandy Creek Trail. Travel another 3 miles to Indian God Rock and look across the river and you will see the Sandy Creek Trail at Fishermans Cove.
Franklin PA is a fairly decent sized town with gas stations, restaurants and other stores.

Rail 66 Country Trail

Just OK

June, 2020 by pnwtoc

The trail is reasonably scenic. Some forest, many open spaces, farmland, homesteads, that kind of thing. My main problem with the trail from Leeper to Marianne is that the middle half (maybe a 6 mile portion?) is in pretty bad condition. Not smooth asphalt. Not sure what it is but it's very bumpy and crumbling in many places. For a road bike, it's annoying and took a great deal of pleasure out of the ride for me and my crew.

Allegheny National Forest - Minister Creek Trail

like this one

May, 2020 by mikeanddee

Great trail, wife and I love to back back this trail. lots of great camp sights and water sources. Rocks are awesome and the vista view is really great first thing in the morning.

Clarion-Little Toby Trail
