Allegheny River Trail & Samuel Justus Trail

Allegheny River Trail & Samuel Justus Trail Overview

Allegheny River Trail The trail is 25 miles of flat, smooth, asphalt surface from Oil City to Emlenton

There are two railroad tunnels on the ART. The Kennerdell Tunnel, 3350’ long, is 15 miles south of Franklin, and the Rockland Tunnel, 2868’ long, is 21 miles south of Franklin. The trail is paved through the tunnels and three rows of reflectors mark the trail edges and center. Both tunnels are very dark. Bring a light!

Picnic tables are located 1/2 mile south of Oil City, at the Franklin trailhead, and 4 miles south of Franklin. Benches with river views are at numerous locations along the trail. Bicycles and canoes can be rented at the Franklin trailhead. Full service repair is available at this location. A number of eating and lodging facilities are available within biking distance of the Oil City and Franklin trailheads.

The Allegheny River and Justus Trails can be accessed from three major trailheads:

Going south from Franklin, the Allegheny River Trail is the southern extension of the Samuel Justus Recreation Trail. Together, these two trails run from Oil City to Franklin (the Samuel Justus Recreation Trail segment) and from Franklin south to Brandon (the Allegheny River Trail segment). These trails will eventually be part of an extensive trail system that extends from the Great Lakes to Washington, DC. They travel along the Allegheny River in northwestern Pennsylvania.
