This a flat easy ride on an old railroad grade. Would be especially scenic in spring or fall. Wellsboro is a fun place to runaround.

We rode the 16 miles through the PA Canyon. A very nice ride, no more than 1% grade, along the Pine Creek Canyon. 62 miles total. Great surface and well maintained. Small stores and restrooms along the way.

A great rail trail of finely crushed rock that was well maintained and very wide - about 15 feet average. Cleared either side too. Many villages/intersections with small stores for refreshments, etc. Great $5 sandwich at the local store in Slate Run where we began...More
