Clarion Little Toby Trail is an 18 mile crushed limestone trail from Ridgway to Brockway. This scenic trail runs along the Clarion River and Little Toby Creek on the former Ridgway and Clearfield branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad. The line was built in 1885 and ran from Ridgway through Carman, Croyland, Blue Rock, Carrier, Brockwayville (now Brockway), Lanes Mills, McMinn's Summit and ended at Falls Creek (near Dubois). Accessibility: This packed sediment and grass trail is estimated to typically be at least 6 feet wide. In many sections the trail is a distinct double track. This means there is often grass growing up in between parallel gravel tracks to either side. Trail goers using mobility equipment may need assistance to navigate this possibly uneven cross grade. In autumn this trail is inundated with leaves. The surface may be slippery, use caution. The slope is estimated to be moderately steep (8% grade) at a maximum. There do not seem to be any designated accessible parking spaces with access aisles at the small unpaved trailhead lot. There are at least 2 accessible car parking spots at the nearby Taylor Memorial Park. This park is marked with a waypoint.

Beautiful trail nice and peaceful. The historic markers along the way made for a very interesting ride. We stopped at the swinging bridge and walked across it. We Did 10 miles out and back but my phone died so it didn’t record the full ride.

This is my go to trail for a bike ride or jog or a long walk with the kids. There are a lot of bugs for the first mile or so but they clear up after you pass the pond. This is a good trail for biking with a mountain bike and I have even had my road bike on it but I would only recommend a road bike if you have some robust tires. There is a pretty cool bridge and swimming hole about 8 miles in and a few benches that make it a good place to take a break.

Road bikingGreat!

Beautiful, level bike trail with plenty of shade and creek/river views. Lots of deer and kayaker sightings, as well as an eagle over Little Toby Creek. Excellent new(er) brewery in Ridgeway for post-ride food and drink.

Great trail! My sister and I took her dog on the long hike and we all loved it! The swinging bridge was definitely the highlight. There was plenty of places to rest along the trial and the scenery was beautiful! Just be sure to check yourself thoroughly for ticks after. Would do this hike again!

Beautiful trail, but I lost cell reception less than a mile in which I didn't like while running alone and each time I stopped I had to pick at least one tick off my dog.
