About the Adventure

Activity Level 2: Moderate Location: Rennerdale, PA Guide: Meisha Let's cycle on the scenic Panhandle Trail! Located in Washington County, the Panhandle Trail is a beautiful 26-mile trail which runs from Walker's Mill in Allegheny County to Weirton, WV. Built on an abandoned grade of the Pennsylvania Railroad, the trail is relatively flat with a 1% average grade. Our 13 mile out-and-back ride will start below the cliffs of the Neville Woods Conservation Area and will follow the crushed limestone path out to McDonald, PA. Bring your road bike, hybrid, street bike, or cruiser. Total distance is 13 miles. Total elevation gained is 320 feet. 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.
