Review: A beautiful trail running near the river at the bottom of the PA Gorge (PA "Grand Canyon"). Our ride was cut short by a sudden change in weather but it was still a good ride.

Review: This is as luxurious as rail trails come. Smooth, paved road for the entire length of the trail. It's a straight shot so you can work up some speed. There are gates at the street intersections that you have to veer right and then left to get through.

There are several outhouses located throughout, and great places for camping. No pumps for water, but the trail goes through several towns so you can stop at the general store for any supplies.

Review: This trail has some great scenic views, but is not for any hard core mountain biker. It's a nice Sunday afternoon trail with your girlfriend or family to enjoy a nice day of riding in nature. Saw several bald eagles, porcupine, and bear scat.

Review: This trail is all "rail-trail". A friend and I went from Jersey Shore to Ansonia and back in a two day trip (128 miles total). We saw multiple Bald eagles and tented in a campground along the trail. Its a workout as you never really get to coast. Its not technically "Mountain biking" but it was still a good time. You certainly dont have to do all of it and there were restrooms along the trail as well.
