The camping trip Kevin and I were planning in western PA got rained out (surprised? not really…). Kevin had taken the day off work, so we decided to head up to a rail trail I recently found out about in eastern PA to get a bike ride in before the weather turned.
We loaded up the bikes and headed to Whitehall, PA to check out the Ironton Rail Trail. This trail is shaped like a lollipop so starting at the Levans Road trailhead you cycle for about 4 miles and then come to a loop area. You can go either way and then return to the straight portion to head back to your car. The best part is the trail is fairly FLAT – wahoo!
Along the trail there are plenty of places to stop and explore remnants of the railroad that used to be there – even 2 railroad cars! If you do the entire trail it was about 13 miles from where we parked, but there were plenty of places to park to make the trail shorter.
Happy Trails! 🙂
