Running through woods and fields, the Lockport Rail Trail follows a former railbed of the Erie Railroad in the town of Lockport. The path is 8-feet-wide and is paved for about half-a-mile from Lockport Rd to Murphy Rd. The trail surface is gravel for the rest of the route. There are plans to possibly pave the existing gravel path and potentially extend the rail-trail from the town into the city of Lockport. The paved section of the trail is likely accessible for those using mobility aids and will be a smoother ride for those with strollers.
At its southern terminus on Lockport Rd, the trail connects with the Pendleton Rail Trail, which stretches 6.3 miles from the town of Pendleton. Together, the two rail-trails create a continuous route from Pendleton to Lockport, providing an alternative to roads for commutes and recreation.
Parking is available by the trailhead at 5300 Lockport Rd.
Trail is not very well kept. Several large piles of dumped household items, garbage and tires all along the trail. No markings or signs. Would not suggest this one.
I didn’t read the description carefully and couldn’t finish the trail since I don’t have a dirt bike. So I am just rating the paved part. Decent path, just not much going on. I ended up taking the paved path across the street headed south to Mapleton and Feigle.
