Mountain Biking Heritage Rail Trail

****   Add a review
#59 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#2,199 in the world

Its a rail trail, so for serious mountain bikers itll be nothing special. Its level and wide hardpan. Great for fast riding except in some places where there are lots of people. Generally it can be quiet and open with some nice scenery. There are quite a number of crossings and parking lots and several places to rest and get refreshments.

    My standard go to trail for distance and speed training as well as an easy leisurely ride.

    Easy ride but you can use distance and /or speed to make it a workout.

    Pleasant ride but no technical challenges here. A good way to relax and enjoy scenery and time with friends.
