Good for bikes but boring views. the trail is a former train track so it's flat and raised (very high on some places). it's lined by small trees on both sides so views of the river are from a distance with trees in the way (with signs prohibiting venturing off the trail and down to the river).

Very nice ride to Saltsburg. Lots of shade, trail was in very good shape. The last mile or so along the Loyalhanna into Saltsburg was great. Only downside was a fair number of stops at road crossings.

Took the entire family including 2 boys 10 and 8 and a little one in a trailer. Started at Delmont trailhead and went to Slickville and back for a total of about 10 miles. Traffic was light on the trail with walkers and bikers. Slight grades except for at road crossings with a few small ascents/descents. Not a ton to look at but it was a nice ride and good for the kids to get on to riding rails to trails.

Great trail that runs from Saltsburg to Delmont. It's fairly scenic and has a few gradual climbs. Both ends and even Slickville in the middle have nice trail access and parking.

Nice trail. Little too steep at times. Needs more benches to sit on when catching your breath after a long upgrade.

very flat, easy to ride, very nice overall

I came walking with my dog. I had a great time enjoyed it. Fellow hikers were extremely friendly and nice. The trail is designed for bikers, runners, and those looking for a peaceful yet simple walk in the woods. I should have done my research because I wanted to see the lake and spend time there. I started at the wrong end apparently which was the 8 1/2 mile marker. Does anyone know where the lake is on the trail?

It was great, but more difficult on the return trip. My wife and I rode from Delmont to Saltsburg and the scenery is nice and is a nice ride.

I ran this trail yesterday. I started just off of 819 and parked in a church parking lot. I now see that I should have used the Slickville VFD trail parking. Heading East I ran to Saltsburg and picked up the West Penn trail. This is a great rail-to-trail for running or biking. The trail is in great shape. No real hills to speak of in this section. Maybe a long 1% grade which really feels like a flat run. Saw lots of deer. Nice bridge crossing at Saltsburg. For this San Diegan desert dweller, it was scenic. For locals, I can see how a gently winding trail through the woods can be same-old... Made me melancholy growing up in PA.

Very nice trail. Some scenic areas along the Beaver reservoir and the Loyalhanna river. Decent parking at either end, I parked on the Delmont side. About 10 parking spaces. The road crossings were good and bad, the bad was the steep decent then acent from the road. The good part was the cautions for the automobilers. In 2 areas, there are lights that flash when a bike approaches, very very nice feature indeed. The incline and decline was a little more substantial than most easy trails, but nothing to fret about. I like the fact that this trail is expanding, it will end in Trafford someday, according to them. It also has a great link in Saltsburg to the West Penn Trail, which is another great trail I hear. Looking forward to that one soon. My number 1 dislike about the trail.....bugs. I think I got my protein fix for the day swallowing bugs and my shins were covered. All in all, good trail, would do again.
