Good trail to walk or run.

Clean area to walk and take your children. Nice benches along the route to rest. Well maintained includes trash cans and doggy bags.

Not overly impressed with this trail. I've ridden rail trails in PA, and this was more of a sidewalk type ride. Not a lot of scenery, but if you want a little exercise, it will do. There's a stretch that's about 3/4 mile long down hill coast, and the exercise will come on the way back out/up.

We found a trailhead before the Pizza Hut off Oyler road. From the gravel lot, turn left and then left again for a ride through town, past the fire station,... More

These trails are just great. Since they were created from railroad tracks through Oak Hill, the grade is never too steep. I've seen foxes, raccoons, snakes (just the small garden variety) and plenty of cats. Unfortunately, there are also a few dogs whose owners do not keep them on leashes. As a runner, this is a particular problem and I... More
