This trail goes paste a waste management plant and runs parallel with railroad tracks less than halfway through. And it’s definitely NOT moderate. This is an easy, nicely manicured walking trail

First mile or so was very nice. Got confused when the trail opened up into a large active construction zone just after a waste treatment plant. Turned around at that point.

it is what one my expect for a Rail Trail. it goes through some pretty forest stream areas. there is an active trail that crosses it. this section is a 1% grade with crushed stone and gravel. I did not encounter any trash or dog stool. Make sure you are aware of poison ivy it is located throughout. it makes for a nice in and out but also connects with allegheny passage trail system.

Amazingly something. We were still game to walk it, even after we discovered it was one of those "1% grade trails" or "rail trails". BUT! Ok, it was 70 degrees in February and the sun was burning with having no leaf cover.... we were cool with everything even the waste station... until the flat trail merged with a Wal-mart parking lot wide sized gravel highway leading off to nowhere. We actually turned around. Never before have we given up a trail. Amazing, sad and gross... somebody prove us wrong.

We did this on a day of semi warm temps in January. Lots of ice and then slush, but still a beautiful walk. The sewer treatment plant is about half way (gross, but what can you do). When you cross the rr tracks, look up the hill where you'll see a house. Directly below that house is an old set of coke ovens. Interesting if you like knowing about regional history.

Anyway, I highly recommend this little trail. Nice scenery and about as level as you can get for SW PA.

What an awesome place... Theres a great place to go rafting there too
