I rode the trail today near the nuclear power plant and it was poorly maintained. The gravel was very loose, a lot of fallen tree debris and quite muddy. I traveled on the trail north about 2.5 miles and gave up. I traveled back along US11 and then rode around the trails at the river flatlands which were a bit better. I guess I am spoiled with my local trails (York Heritage and NW Lancaster Co Rail Trail)
Lewisburg end start at the Miller Center/YMCA. First mile in Lewisburg is confusing and crossing Highway 15 is not at a crosswalk and the trail is not well marked. Mifflinburg end is just beyond the Rusty Rail restaurant. Lots of parking in that area. Lewisburg end first 2 miles are asphalt, many road crossings. Mifflinburg end is 1.5 miles asphalt. Middle is through cornfields and farm fields with several farm access road crossings. Could be a 5 star except for Lewisburg end and a couple of Highway crossings should be more visibly marked - cars don’t stop for bikes.
Nice trail. Relatively flat, although we did have a hard time finding the trailhead. Parked behind stadium in Williamsport. Trail goes through both urban and rural areas. Good for all, levels of riders.
The Pine Creek Trail is located in the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. We rode the 62 mile trek in one day and what a wonderful ride it was. The trail is exceptionally well maintained and God has landscaped this trail with beautiful mountains on each side and (this summer) a flowing ‘creek’ along side. The 62 miles flowed so smoothly that we reached the end before we knew it.
We just took our 11yo and 8yo from Jersey Shore to Waterville (22mi) and it was fantastic. Lots of scenic stopping points including a number of mini-waterfalls and 4 bridges. We stopped halfway for lunch at the Waterville Tavern and the kiddos played at the park adjacent to the restaurant. Headed back to Jersey Shore after that. While the grade seems relatively flat, there is a slight rise - so inexperienced young riders may tucker out on the way out. But the way back is much easier.
Easy trail but beautiful and well maintained!
I did an out-and-back of about 24 miles starting from Wellsboro, on a warm Saturday in June 2021. This trail is almost perfectly flat, with only some very gentle elevations. It is sparsely travelled until you get closer to the Turkey Path Trail Waterfall at Little Fourmile Run. Around this point, I saw larger groups of cyclists and walkers, many with kids. All in all, it's a gorgeous trip, but what made it even better was discovering Pag-Omar Farms Market at the Wellsboro end! While I rested up, my husband walked over to Pag-Omar and got smoked chicken brisket, with some of the best sides I've tasted at any BBQ I've been to (and I lived in Texas for two years): slightly spicy, sweet baked beans; delicious coleslaw; and fantastic potato salad with dill. That made our day complete. I hope to do other sections of this RT in the future.
Started at the Lewisburg end. Great trail, with moderately heavy traffic on a mid-June day. Ideal for my hybrid bike. As others have said, there are lots of road crossings. In the rural areas, be prepared for some dusty riding, as farm machinery crosses the trail frequently. Others have mentioned that the RT splits in Lewisburg, forcing you to cross a 4-lane highway; if you want to avoid that, park, as we did, just off N. 15th St., as there is a nice parking area for trail users, as well as a restroom. On the day I was there, a pop-up food stand greeted me when I finished my out-and-back. It's an urban area, so watch out for cars—speed limits seem to be mere guidelines in PA (I say this as a Pennsylvanian). Even pedestrians don't seem particularly safe from drivers.
Hiked the trail on May 27, 2021. Trail is pleasant , well shaded and fairly flat. We started from the east side and the railroad tunnel was on the far west side. We enjoyed the trail for its connection to nature. We saw a few animals including snakes and a turtle. Penn’s Creek is great at all points. Recommend.
I rode the Trail solo 62 mi to Wellsboro Jct. from Jersey Shore and back to Jersey Shore. I camped at Tiadaghton Campsite both nights. It was in the canyon itself. No services. Entire site is waterfront. Popular with fishermen. Another access is down an extremely steeeeeep road. I hiked up to use different muscles. Hoffman looked like another excellent site. It is about a mile south of Blackwell. No road access. It has a small Pavilion in a grassy area and mature trees and next to Pine Creek.
A very good informative map/brochure is available from Pawilds.com https://pawilds.com/asset/pine-creek-rail-trail/
Order a hard copy. I got mine on the trail itself. The website is a good reference.
The surface is very hard with cinders the entire length. One level under macadam. Well maintained. All water is routed under the trail. no potholes, ruts or even sticks on the trail. The trail is very scenic, especially north of Blackwell in the canyon. Camping by permit only (tel. # 570-724-2868). My only issue was lack of water availability on the trail. Pump water is "not tested". You may want to bring a filter. Plenty of restrooms and canoe access points but not water pumps. "Hotel Manor" is an excellent Pub/restaurant in Slate Run. Go over the bridge. Wolfe's Gen store is also in Slate Run on the tail. Cedar Inn and a Gen store in Cedar Run are on the trail. At the very end of the trail is Pag-Omar where sandwiches drinks and ice cream is available. You could probably find more spotty services if you ventured slightly off the trail to the small villages.
I was surprised at the number of bird species on the trail. I saw Bluebirds, a lot of Goldfinches, Chickadees, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Robins, Hawks and a Bald Eagle. I was expecting a bear but did not see one.
The Trail follows the Pine Creek almost its entire length. It often follows roads especially in the southern part. A lot of trails follow roads. It is an unfortunate annoyance.
For me this trail was a hidden gem which I did not expect and is 3 hours from my home. I will return.
I returned to do a short (7.25 miles) with my wife, as she walked with a friend because she recently sold her bike. The last time I biked on the Pine Creek Rail Trail it was mid-July of 2019 to celebrate my 55th birthday. It was very hot that day and I was tired, but I still biked my age in miles. This time it was the very beginning of May, the 1st and it was a beautiful mild temperature day to do a short ride. The scenery is amazing starting from the Tiadaghton Trail Head, but getting there is not for the faint of heart as there a small bumpy unpaved road that ends with a big downhill to the trail. I seriously wouldn’t recommend using that Trailhead if you don’t have an all wheel or four wheel drive vehicle!
Nice drive up out of the Susquehanna Valley, easy to locate trailhead with good parking. Trail is level, (signs say bikes okay on rail grade only - today we are on foot). Trail is wooded, a couple of side loops for interpretive and conservation information. There were 6 or so inches of snow with a frozen crust that broke through every 6th step or so, but it was quite enjoyable, and this early March Saturday afternoon we had it all to ourselves. We will come back later this spring and see how it looks with leaves. I held back one star because I prefer more rugged trails, but today this was just the thing.
