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.

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.
