About the Adventure

Activity Level 2: Moderate Location: Montour Trail Mile 0, Coraopolis Guide: Meisha-lead, Lindsay-sweep There’s a lot to love on Western Pennsylvania’s Montour Trail! The 61.5-mile Montour Trail follows most of the former Montour Railroad’s main line west and south of Pittsburgh. Our ride will take us from Coraopolis (mile 0 on the trail) to Enlow (mile 7.8) and back. Both the trail and the railroad are named for the creek that runs alongside them; we'll cycle alongside the babbling Montour Run waterway for the trail’s first 7.8 miles. A highlight of the trip includes the Enlow Tunnel in Findlay Township, about 7.2 miles along the trail. Not only is its 575-foot expanse fun to traverse, but the journey on either end is a treat as the path winds through a scenic wooded valley here. The Montour Trail surface is crushed limestone. Total distance will be 15 miles. What kind of bike is best for this trail? Most people ride hybrid or gravel bikes. Some use mountain bikes. A road bike equipped with slightly knobby tires will also work. A road bike with slick, skinny tires is unsuitable for this trip. What equipment do I need? All participants must have their own bike (or rent one.) Helmets are mandatory. Other gear to have: • a spare tube • water (hydration pack; bottle with cage) • snacks/energy food • eye protection ( sunglasses or clear safety glasses) • padded bike shorts • bike gloves • rain gear, • saddle (underseat) bag to keep keys, phone, etc. WAC Biking Safety and Etiquette 1. Helmets are required and must be worn while riding. 2. Eye protection is strongly recommended. (sunglasses or clear safety glasses) 3. Using phones for talking or taking pictures while riding is unsafe and not permitted. 4. Front and rear lights are recommended. Lights are required for tunnels. (Headlamp is fine.) 5. We ride single file and maintain 1-2 bike lengths between riders. 6. We ride on the right side of the trail and pass on the left. 7. We use hand signals for turns and braking.
