Great Allegheny Passage

A much improved trail - Ohiopyle to Confluence

August, 2020 by FrankJ

In my last review (very recent, and in fact, just yesterday) of this section of the Great Allegheny Passage, I complained about the very poor condition of the trail. Well, I rode this section again today just to see if it was repaired yet. Lo and behold, it was! New limestone was laid down on the entire 10+ mile length between Ohiopyle and Confluence. This made for a smooth, fantastic ride. I hope that the trail will be continually maintained like this. Congratulations and a BIG Thank You to the crews who did this work!! What a great surprise this was. The trail was fun again.

Rough Trail - Ohiopyle to Confluence

August, 2020 by FrankJ

Generally a great trail. However, the section between Ohiopyle and Confluence is in dire need of repair. I don't know when the last time crushed limestone has been added to this trail, but it must have been 15 years ago. The last few years, this section has been very rough on tires. There is actually no limestone in several places, and you are riding on exposed base stone, which is very rough. Rough enough to destroy a tire if you are moving fast. On my last trip this past spring, the trail condition was still horrible. I'm hoping that the trail has been repaired by now (August 2020).

Henson Creek Trail

upkeep needed

August, 2020 by jadeplusjeremy

This is a very nice creek-side trail, filled with potential for enjoying the creek itself. However it is in need of upkeep, from fallen trees, to filled trash cans, to a portion of the concrete trail being physically damages/broken. I will be reaching out to the county on this matter. Long live our trails!

Little Falls Trail (MD)

The north section is in a very nice neighborhood park, but the southern section steals the show. It is usually uncrowded and the views of the creek are stunning. This is my favorite trail section in MoCo so far.

Magruder Branch Trail

Loved the shade almost through the whole path! Quite a lot of elevation change, but really like it.

Metropolitan Branch Trail

nice ride

August, 2020 by markbrad2002

This trail is good for people who want an urban experience, especially on a weekend morning as the city slowly awakes. Lots of places to stop for food and drinks - even shopping - along the way.

Herring Run Trail

Herring Run. completed 8.1.2020

August, 2020 by cdb91974

Trail needs some serious maintenance. Down trees blocking trail. Untended to vegetation that causes you to tuck, bob, and weave. Trail needs some serious maintenance before another review is possible.

Great Allegheny Passage

wonderful

July, 2020 by stempkajeffrey

Great for cyclists of all ages and levels. Pittsburgh to Ohiopyle was a great trip; lots of shade on a 90+ degree day made the heat not be much of an issue. Riders are very respectful with covid. Bring lots of water- water stations are hit/miss at present. A+ trail!

Indian Creek Trail (MD)

It's very well preserved lots of green and a beautiful lake, it's a short trail and if you're on mood to run with steps there's some stairs near the trail.

Great American Rail-Trail

Great ride today

July, 2020 by vlc9802

We rode this trail from Toulon to Princeville today. It was great! The path was very good. It is mostly shaded. Excellent. We stopped in Wyoming on our way back for lunch. Ate at 111 Coffee Shop. Don’t be fooled, this is NOT just a coffee shop. The lunch was delicious. And it is decorated all with bikes! Perfect for us bikers. And check out the bathroom. Cute!!! Can’t wait to do more of the route from Princeville going south.

Perfect

We enjoyed riding from Ohiopyle to Connellsville. Even on a 90+ degree day , we were fine in the shade.
