Always something new to see

This is a great trail. It is maintained extremely well. Vintondale to Nanty Glo is a challenge, but all tje other sections are great. I would recommend anyone on this trail.

Nice walking trail with two historic highway tunnels (being a flashlights)

Visited on 4/7/18. This paved trail would be great for a leisurely walk or bike ride. I made a two hour trip to run this path and it's side trails. The Quarry Rim Trail has some great views of a limestone quarry. The Chestnut Trail has some serious elevation gain with a decent view as payoff. You can access both trails from the main paved path. The wet bridge area has suffered from flooding, so it was extremely muddy when I went through. The Main Parking Lot is paved with quite a few spaces and a bathroom. The West Parking Lot is a small gravel lot off the side of the road. The area is well maintained and I would recommend if you live somewhat close. There is nothing spectacular here, but it's a nice little area to explore.

This was a several mile walk to the abandoned turnpike tunnel. Lots of graffiti and broken up road. It was a good time and great photo opportunities.

I usually run this trail when I’m supposed to be working! There are beautiful long sections of level ground for distance runners.

beautiful scenery for the area with plenty of history to accompany the views! Lots of areas to enjoy and change up for additional visits.

Edit: before leaving I went to the opposite trail head where I found the woodland trails I was looking for. The paths take you on an immediate climb uphill where you get a view of the gorge from above. Stunning. Well worth a regular visit

Was expecting more from my first time trip to a highly rated licking county trail. The whole path appears to be paved. I was looking for something more woodsy. Recent flooding and storms have created severe washout on lowland sections of trail; slick mud over blacktop make walking very tedious. About one mile into trail encountered total river washout over the path and was unable to proceed. This trail seems to offer a promising partial day hike with young or inexperienced hikers maybe to picnic farther out. Best to wait until flood waters recede. Will revisit later in summer.

Great trail with a couple off trail loops you can go around. A lot of great photos can be taken here. Very scenic.

I completed a 2.5 hour walk/jog on the Western MD Rail Trail about a week ago. It was very lovely trail. I mainly explored the area & took in nature and history about the trail. Many pretty views (off paved trail)!!!
Primarily for biking to view more of the area, but the hike was nice. The trail has a paved road and side trail that appears to be where train tracks use to be. Great trail. Will go back with my bike next time! ;)

I have done this trail 2x once only half way walking and once on bike the entire trail. Every time I go I see something else I wasn't to explore.

Lots of interesting topography.

Please stay on the established, official paths at all times. Be very cautious near cliffs.

This trail is a great and easy walking path, a nice way to get out and get some fresh air and easily enjoyable for the whole family....Do get directions for parking off the ghost town trail website instead of using the directions button on this page it does not take you to it but other than that a really nice trail.

Awesome bike or hike. We biker from Breezewood to Houstontown where it ties back into the turnpike. Roughly 13 miles each way. Absolutely worth the trip, but it is a leg killer on a bike. Would definitely do it again.

Another nice one. Maybe I need to learn nordic skiing and come back in the snow.
