Allegheny River Trail...

Scenic Biking in the Allegheny Mountains

Allegheny River Trail runs from Franklin to Emlenton, PA, linking to the Samuel Justus Recreational Trail at Franklin for a combined 38 miles of paved biking along the Allegheny River and through woodland to Oil City. Old abandoned (and some working) oil wells, spectacular scenery through the Alleghenies and along the river. At the Belmar Bridge, the Allegheny Trail crosses the Sandy Creek Trail. Another shorter section then runs between Foxburg and Parker. (Detailed map and photos below.)
