The trail was hard to find. We actually walked the roadway thinking it was the trail. No view of the creek which I was expecting.

Great ride, a bit rocky! Beautiful canopy of trees covers most of the trail.

A little hard to find but definitely worth it! Gorgeous rail trail and not very many people. The gate at the cold spring road entrance is open, definitely need 4 by 4 vehicle to get to the lot.

The directions on here are not accurate. You can park at these coordinates and start your ride from here (40.398604,-76.853798).
The trail eventually splits and you can travel to the right and up an incline after crossing Stoney Creek. The other way goes on for miles. I only completed about 8 miles before I turned and headed back. The trail is hard packed and is easy to navigate even for children. The woods are peaceful and the trail is shaded. I highly recommend doing even a portion of this trail if you are in the area.

I had biked this trail many years ago as a kid attending a local YMCA Summer Camp.
It was a light gravel trail, flat, and scenic rolling along Stoney Creek.
From the start, 4-5 miles down the trail is an old wooden bridge with a fresh water spring seeping out of the ground on the NE corner.
And 9-11 miles back there is an old station house. This is a good place to stop and turn back.
Below the Station, there are fresh water springs.
This trail is excellent for all members of the family, and if you have horses, it's a great trail for riding too. Plenty of trail space to maneuver and move.
