Really enjoyed this trail! We went last Saturday and took lots of pictures! Very scenic route!! Traveled in the morning to mid- afternoon and never experienced heavy traffic. I would categorize this ride as easy; majority flat trail.

Surprising clean and well maintained for a train that doesn’t get tons of people. Flat, more of a bike trail than hike. Very nice views.

Best to start this trail at Buttermilk Falls parking lot. Beautiful river trail north of kittanning,Pa, connects to the beautiful red bank creek trail. Great scenery. Beautiful valleys.

The trail itself is very nice. Parking lot is hard to find. You have to be careful to stay on the trail, but it's a very pleasant ride! I only rode about 15 miles out and then back, so I didn't complete the entire trail.

Nice river trail. Lots of nice views. Needs better markers on the trail. It is easy to get off trail in the small towns. I also had a hard time finding the trail head parking since there isn't many signs.
