As it winds along Oil Creek, McClintock Trail connects Oil Creek State Park with Oil City. Note that much of the route is on-road.
Just south of the park, a 1.8-mile section on Waitz Road, a dirt road with a few steep slopes in Cornplanter Township, provides access to the historic McClintock Well #1.
The southern section of the McClintock Trail was completed in September 2013, moving bicyclists and other trail users off busy State Route 8. This segment is a smooth, flat asphalt trail that aligns with an active class three railroad; the train is slow moving at approximately 15 MPH. This segment of the trail takes users from McClintock Well #1 to Oil City, where users can pick up the trail route through Oil City to the Samuel Justus Recreation Trail.
McClintock Trail is part of the Erie-To-Pittsburgh Trail; please see the link in the Explore Related Content box for more information.
On the north end of the trail, there is a small trailhead at McClintock Well #1 on Waitz Road, as well as a large trailhead on Old Bankson Road, approximately 800 feet off State Route 8.
If you are getting on the trail from the southern end, there is no designated parking area.
