Rode from East Brady to Rossford, around 29 mile. Very nice trail especially the upper half of it. Was an easy ride. Lots of signs to mark the trail. Want to ride this trail again in the fall. Great trail, and well maintained.

We rode from East Brady to Kittanning and back. Great trail! This is the flattest trail you can find near the Pittsburgh area. The trail runs along the Allegheny river, by locks river homes, small towns, under trestles and over bridges. Mile markers are visible with maps at each. The trail is mostly shaded and well groomed. There are always a few rougher areas, but they are scattered and passable at a slower speed. Highly recommend this trail.

Starting in Ford City and riding to East Brady and back, Armstrong Trail is generally well maintained and scenic. Recent storms had a tree down and minor washouts, but this wasn't unexpected. The Allegheny River Valley has beautiful valley views, interesting historical markers. The flat and wide trail allows fast easy riding, day dreaming and occasional benches to stop an soak it all in. This was my first time on the Armstrong, but not my last. Thumbs up to Armstrong County.

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.

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.
