Shouldn't even be on this app. Overgrown and not enjoyable. Less than halfway up and we gave it up as a bad job. Might be better after the frost kills off some of the undergrowth, but wear long pants. The saw briars made my legs look like a herd of housecats had attacked me.

Pretty difficult trail. No parking and serious thorn overgrowth. It was so bad we had to let the dogs off leash to get through it. You probably won't see anyone else on this trail. It's completely secluded which I enjoyed. Beautiful mature forest on a back road but I still had cell phone service.

Started at Pine Grove to Juniata River. My 1st solo back pack experience. It was quite challenging on the first day but add some heavy rain and the rocky terrain slowed the pace quite a bit on day 2.

This is most certainly a difficult trail. Turning off the rocky midstate trail to descend and get water i was looking forward to an easy stretch down off the mountain. Turns out it is more challenging than a particularly rocky stretch of the midstate.

This is a wonderful and flat trail that’s perfect for running, walking, and riding bicycles. Especially for beginners. It follows the river and is very well maintained. I use the Lower Trail often.

Fell in love with this trail as a kid. Still love it! Shoutout to whomever owns those wonderful chickens that frequent the trail (PS they love mealworms haha).

Beautifull Trail I rode my horse on this Trail on a Father's Day weekend it was busy but the nice thing if you have a horse is that they provide a grassy Trail that was to the right of the main trail and sometimes the left it allows you to ride on that part and not be right on the asphalt and or stone dust trail that people ride and bicycle on. also on that weekend something was blooming along the river that smelled absolutely heavenly very very pretty Trail.

Great trail for hiking, running, and riding bicycles. It is wonderfully maintained and we really enjoyed the sights and the sounds of nature. I plan to use this trail over and over again. Five star rating for me!

Stumbled onto this place after getting directions and a great beer and burger at the bar along the river in Alexandria. Only went 4 miles from the parking lot up river to the big bridge over the river and 4 miles back. It was warm and muggy so took advantage of the river and went in for a dip. Don't worry about a swim suit as it's a very quite ride up that far and the bridge is high over the river. Got back to the car in the lot just as it was getting dark. The bugs were becoming annoying as the sun went down. Beautifully groomed and smooth. Perfect for a leisurely ride along the river on a lazy day. Starting at Alexandria and heading up river makes for a nice "downhill" ride on the way back, although the whole trail is only a slight grade as it follows the river. I want to make the whole trip someday.

That trails is so easy that if you wanna do mountain biking this place is the one to start with. It's easy, flat on ups or downs, and in a wonderful scenic area. It's about 13 miles long but never worry about doing it. It's so easy that you can do in your first or second visit. It has many rest places and it passes by houses, playgrounds , and a gas station.

Bring the whole family on this one! Easy and level ground, many places to stop and observe nature, picnic, fish, swim. All types of trail users can be found throughout the trail. Hikers, backpackers, bikers, runners, and horse riders. You will be walking along the river and see a multitude of conoes, kayaks, and inner tubes enjoying the Frankstown Branch of the Juniata River. Don'tbe afraid to bring the little ones. You will see many people with strollers or kidson the shoulder's. If hte kids wan to walk they can handle the terrain as well as anyone else. The foundation is constantly improving the trail system with pavillions, restrooms and excellent maintenance with the help and cooperation of PA Department of Natural Resources. You won't be disappointed.

This is the first rail trail I've ever biked... The trail is very smooth and even paved for a few miles. Very peaceful and scenic I try to go at least twice a month when the weather is nice.
