Trail Description

The longest BicyclePA Route, it extends from Washington County (east of Wheeling, WV) to Washington Crossing Military Park on the Delaware River in Bucks County, and skirts the metropolitan areas of Pittsburgh, York, Lancaster, and Philadelphia. Part of the route includes 65 miles along the Youghiogheny River and Allegheny Highlands Rail-Trails through southwest Pennsylvania, a beautiful ride that saves thousands of vertical feet of steep climbing. A recently added attraction is the Pike-to-Bike Trail, an 8.5 mile long route option east of Breezewood. It incorporates an abandoned section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, including two tunnels totaling 2.0 miles in length. Bring your bicycle lights. BicyclePA routes were designed by experienced bicyclists to provide bicycling members of the traveling public who wish to traverse the state with a guide to some of the Commonwealth’s highways and rail-trails. Few of these routes contain bike lanes or other facilities designed specifically for bicyclists traveling within the four corners of the Commonwealth. Every bicyclist is responsible for his or her personal safety and welfare and for remaining alert and mindful of conditions on the roads or trails. BicyclePA users are expected to be licensed drivers or persons at least sixteen years of age who have several years of road bicycling experience.
