Great place to run !!!

Great, scenic trail. I would recommend this trail for anyone else that is new to rail trail biking. It was great to have several places to stop and take a break if you needed one. Everyone out riding was very friendly.

A very easy and flat trail through farmlands of the area. I did the 10 mile Ramble a week ago and enjoyed it very much.

A lovely, quiet, well maintained trail that starts in a little college/agricultural town and runs thru idyllic farmland with mountains on both sides of the valley. The extra couple of miles recently completed makes the out and back closer to 24 miles. Great ice cream at "The Cabin on King" back in Shipsburg made for a splendid day!

Scenic trail for easy bike riding through agricultural lands with nice views of mountains to the north. Good comfort stations and parking at trailheads in Shippensburg and Newville. Low traffic at road crossings allows for brisk riding speeds and little braking.

We loved this trail! Lots of scenic views and the trail is shaded along most of the route. Fun, easy ride!

Rode bikes from Newville to Shippensburg. Nice park at the Shippensburg to stop for lunch. Took Bert (schnauzer) in his Hound-about. Great ride.
