Welcome back! This is not a trail for beginners. The uphill is some work. Most of the downhill part you will coast.
RPD1 Sept 21, Nice trail that we will ride again. Couldn't quite give a 5 though. The cracks in the asphalt are in need of repair and a bit annoying. Also, a few too many road crossings than I would like. One other thing that would be nice to see is some picnic tables for resting along the way. The only nice rest area is at the bike shop at Kirk Road. As others have described the PA side of this trail is fairly well maintained. There are a couple bad spots that are marked so you can avoid them as of September I crossed into Ohio and immediately had to turn around because the pavement was ridiculous.
The trail has a few gradual inclines, if you park at the New Castle lot you will have that last little workout as its a gradual uphill to the parking lot. Team Dash is a husky and wheelchair team. The Rails to Trails greenway has been the best by far for Team Dash to get in some miles. Today we did 7 miles. Love it x Once you get over there, the bike trail is very rocky, which makes it difficult to ride.
We ended up ditching the trail and riding around the area on the sidewalks and roads since there was hardly any car traffic. We rode out of Emlenton, where you can only ride north. We did a total of The trail blacktop was buckled in areas, it was worse coming back.
Otherwise, it was a gorgeous ride. Heed the warnings about a flashlight. The tunnels were around miles 7 and Started at Freeport and rode 7 miles and back.
Slight uphill the way out, but not too difficult. Parking lots were full at every stop we passed, but the trail was never crowded. Enjoyed the shaded and wide trail. Spotted 2 deer chasing each other across the creek and 2 Great Blue Heron fishing for their lunch. We will return to complete the trail soon. This 7 mile trail is very technical. Out and back, winding and uphill both ways. A great workout for sure. Trail follows along the lake.
Picnic areas and restrooms along the trail. Most of it is shaded traveling though the woods. You have to really pay attention on this one as this trail is very well used by all out enjoying it. You may be cruising along then come to a quick turn to discover people out in the middle around the bend.
So if you're out there going for speed, this is not the trail. If you're out for a leisurely ride, this is the right trail. There is a bike rental at the trail head, call ahead for hours.
Open most days throughout the summer and shortened hours off season. However if the weather is nice and people are looking to rent, they will be open. Gravel trail in multiple widths. Sometimes just a few feet wide and hope no one is coming the other way and other times very wide like a 2-lane highway. High point on the trail is midway.
Not exactly sure but I am guessing Cabot. There is no water along the trail. No where to get water close to the trail. Sign up!

Updating list Reviewed June 21, Haven't seen a beaver that big since Junior High.Big Beaver opened up just recently in a small facility in Loveland. While not quite ready for prime-time, they are offering tastings of their beers - spanning wheat, bock, brown ale, and IPA. The IPA and wheat, in particular, were outstanding, but all of them are quite good.4/5(56).
