I loved the beautiful vistas and cool rock formations. Can’t wait to do it again!

Trail head is 0.2 miles before where it shows on gps. No parking lot, have to park on the shoulder. Follow yellow rectangle and watch for an unexpected split to the right, marked by a double rectangle. If you reach another road you want too far. My gps was showing me about 250 ft west of trail the whole time. Be prepared for a sustained steep climb.

Always a great ride. Easy access. Exercise or tour with a friend.

breath taking

We attempted to ride the entire length of the trail while bicycle camping along the way. A damaged bike kept us from getting further than Blackwell, PA (starting at the trailhead near Wellsboro, PA), but that portion that we hit through the Natural Area of the "canyon" was great.
We stayed overnight at a camping area at the old CCC town of Tiadagton. Eagles, black bear, ducks, geese, white tailed deer and timber rattlesnakes were seen in plenty. The middle of the Natural Area did not see much in the way of other campers or even bikers during the two weekend August days that we were base camped there. The star gazing was awesome and the night sounds of the old town site kept us wondering since we were the only people camped there.
The town of Blackwell has a general store that should be a standard stop on the trail.
The ride was very easy as the trail is the best Rail Trail that I have ever ridden. And I have ridden on many. I would suggest this trail to anyone looking for a day trip up to a multi night adventure. Caution should be exercised with the numerous bears (storing food stuffs) and the number of rattlesnakes trail side.
This is one of PA Wilds best hidden gems.

Kind of the same thing the entire way, no views. But its out there. Lots of bugs, recommend pants. Easy trail like it states, not very much elevation gain or loss at all.

Not a bad trail, crosses a few roads tho. no scenic views but the forestry is amazing. Saw 2 Owls and a Deer. no bear or snakes. You have to cross a stream once and a swampy mud section once. but both you can rock hop over without much trouble. Markers are yellow. be sure you're following them the trail gets a little overgrown when you're ascending the steepest part (which is right after you cross the stream).

Would love to know where the other reviewer went in. The directions take you to someone's home address and no trail head within 5 miles is marked.

Beautiful woodsy scenery, easy flat ride from Jersey Shore to Waterville access area. Looking forward to using the rest of the trail.

This is a relatively easy rail trail, mild grade heading north, downhill in the other direction. A complete down and back is about 100 miles.

Easy trail, brought my dog and let him off leash. You can park at the top of the mountain and it's right there past a game lands gate. It was "closed" the day I went but no one bothered my dog and I.

Hiked 23 miles on this trail in one day. Was great. Rained for the first 3 hours but then was a beautiful day after. Really enjoyed the solitude. Saw several eagles and deer and a few other animals. Went up the turkey path on the Leonard Harrison side. Adds a little bit of uphill to an otherwise flat hike.

This is a great trail for riders of all levels. A good track for cardio work or easy riding, also a good place to take kids riding. The one and only issue I have found is that bicycle etiquette is not followed by the locals who live along the trail, so if you are there doing cardio work you can plan on being slowed down by large groups of riders.

This is the best for easy biking in a beautiful setting, especially the Waterville area.

I rode this 2 years ago on my road bike. Its a cinder trail so I wouldn't necessarily recommend this for a road bike, but I didn't have any problems. I road the full 64 miles and can attest to the beauty of the area.It follows the railroad so it is a very easy trail to hike. You do have to be careful of rattlesnakes soaking up the sun during the summer months, but overall this is a very popular and enjoyable trail.
