Pine Creek Rail Trail

Great for kiddos!

July, 2021 by federer_lisa

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.

Pine Creek Rail Trail

Very Scenic

July, 2021 by jcr5411_tl

Easy trail but beautiful and well maintained!

Pine Creek Rail Trail

Easily my favorite trail in PA so far, PLUS fantastic barbecue!

June, 2021 by ladyalchimia

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.

Buffalo Valley Rail Trail

Access Lewisburg parking off N. 15th just north of Wilson Alley

June, 2021 by ladyalchimia

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.

Penns Creek Path (Mid State Trail)

good trail

May, 2021 by mike.love

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.

Pine Creek Rail Trail

Bikepacking 3 day/2 night May 2021 by Paul

May, 2021 by paulz

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.

Pine Creek Rail Trail

The second time around was better because of the weather

May, 2021 by paulruns7777

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!

Conservancy Narrow Gauge Rail Trail

Crusty Snow, Cold Air, Pleasant Walk

March, 2021 by hp98512

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.

Bald Eagle Valley Trail

Nothing special

October, 2020 by joelkring

We rode the western section of the trail, most of the time there is constant noise from the nearby highway. The trail is well maintained but the stone surface is rough compared to many of the stone trails we have ridden. Much of the trail was in full sun, which on a cool day in October was okay. Also the rest room (portable toilet) at the train was closed and a sign read, "Closed for spring cleaning".

Susquehanna River Walk & Timber Trail

Well maintained trail system

October, 2020 by joelkring

We started our ride by doing a loop around the South Williamsport Community Park then on to the Susquehanna River Walk trail to the Timber Trail, back onto the SRW and then on to the Susquehanna Bikeway. We also rode the Canfield Island Heritage Park trail, a very scenic little loop and a loop around a pond in Indian Park near the north end of the Bikeway. For the most part the trails are well maintained, but there is no escaping your proximity to the highways for most of the ride. Not a bad trail but I prefer more seclusion.

Bald Eagle Valley Trail

Good ride for a flat lander

October, 2020 by chrisabeck1959

Good ride for a flat lander from OK with wiener dog in toe. Short but very pleasant!

Buffalo Valley Rail Trail

In great condition...lots of road crossings

September, 2020 by Joshua Brock

We wanted to try a new trail and this was the closest trail with a distance worth driving for. The trail is in stellar shape, well maintained with paved sections at both ends...crushed gravel over the majority. As it’s coming in and out of two towns, lots of crossings, safely identified and set up...just know that. Beautiful Farmland here!! We started and ended in the Madisonburg end as we then went to Rusty Rail afterwards, which you can either walk to from that terminus or drive over to.
