Trail Description

The Bells Gap Rail-Trail is really two trails in one—a flat 2.1-mile southern section with smooth crushed limestone surface, and a rougher, more difficult northern section best-suited for mountain bike enthusiasts or hikers seeking a challenge. Horseback riding is permitted on the grass edge of the trail. The southern 2.1 miles of the trail consist of fresh crushed limestone surface. There are several covered benches on which to rest and enjoy the scenery. After the first 2.1 miles, the trail abruptly changes to an unimproved game lands trail that consists of dirt, ballast, and grass. The trail ends at Route 865 in Lloydsville; there is no trailhead or parking here.
