Blaisdell-Emery Trail Description

The Blaisdell-Emery Trail follows an abandoned railroad bed between South Bradford and the borough of Lewis Run. This scenic trail parallels Tunungant Creek (locally called Tuna Creek) for part of the way and offers a nice quiet stroll or bike ride. The area once had many oil rigs, and you can see the remains of one from the trail; the rig stands at nearby Penn-Brad Historical Oil Well Park.

Parking and Trail Access

At the northern trailhead in South Bradford park just off Owens Way. In Lewis Run the trailhead is next to the entrance of the Keystone Powdered Metal plant. Parking is nearby on-street.

Blaisdell-Emery Trail Reviews

not bad!

This is a great trail for beginners. It's almost all flat, even the slight incline is easy. We had our two children in their rear-seated bike carriers, and it was rather bumpy for them. If bumps don't bother you, this will be a great ride :) nice to have somewhere to ride our bikes, that's safe.

Not bad, in need of some maintenance

The north section between the Oil Well Museum and Owen's Way is in need of some maintenance. There are many mud-holes, which make this part of the trail difficult to navigate on foot, and make a huge mess if you are on bike. The southern part of the trail, between the Oil Well Museum and Lewis Run is much more user-friendly for walking and biking.

Error in link to Tuna Valley Trail Association

The link to the Tuna Valley Trail Association web site will not work because of an underline placed after "index". It should be <http://www.tunavalleytrail.com/index.html>.

Good trail

The trails connects Owens Way in Bradford to Main Street in Lewis run and is pretty flat and well maintained. A couple of nice bridges along the Tunungwant Creek. Graded with fairly large rocks, it's a little rough for smaller children on their bikes or in trailers, but there are a few places to stop and park along the route so it's a good walk.
