Regional Trails

The Pine Creek Rail Trail is a 62-mile long unpaved pathway located in north central Pennsylvania. The trail was built along an abandoned railroad right-of-way and goes through a very rural and beautiful part of the Pennsylvania countryside. The trail spans between Stokesdale to Jersey Shore and passes several other communities along the way. The route includes the Pine Creek Gorge with its 1000 foot high slopes on each side. The route goes through thickly wooded areas and wildlife is abundant along the trail.


The Pine Creek Rail Trail is not paved, but has an improved graded and compacted stone surface. The trail is open for non-motorized use, such as bike riding and walking. Horses are allowed only in certain sections. The grades are gentle and there are few road crossings, so it makes for a good family outing.


The Pine Creek Rail Trail goes past the following communities: Stokesdale, Asaph, Ansonia, Cedar Run, Slate Run, Cammal, Jersey Mills, Waterville, Ramsey, Tomb and Jersey Shore.
