Bike Grand Canyon of PA on the Pine Creek Rail Trail

Join us on Saturday, September 17, for a one-day bike trip of 29 miles through the "Grand Canyon" of PA," considered the most beautiful stretch of the 62-mile-long Pine Creek Rail Trail in north central Pennsylvania.

We will meet at the parking lot of the trail access point in Slate Run at 9:15 a.m., where we will leave our vehicles and be shuttled with your bike to our starting destination at the Ansonia/Marsh Creek trail access point .

At trip completion, we'll stop at Hotel Manor in Slate Run and relax on their deck overlooking Pine Creek while enjoying food, liquid refreshment, and the camaraderie of your fellow bikers.

  • Difficulty Rating: Easy, level grade, crushed gravel bike path.
  • Helmets are required.
  • Plan on a 4-5 hour leisurely pedal with stops for scenic attractions, ice cream, et al.
  • Slate Run is approximately a 2.5-hour drive from Apalachin.
  • Register below. Remember to renew expired TCSC membership before registering.
  • Registration ends on 8/26/22.

The shuttle will be provided by the Pine Creek Outfitters, 570-724-3003, at a per person cost of $30 payable by check made out to TCSC and mailed to:

Kevin Walters

An email will be sent to participants in early September, listing information helpful in trip preparation. Tune-ups at bike shops usually take 3-4 weeks. If your bike tires use inner tubes, it would be wise to bring a spare with CO2 cartridges and tire levers in case you get a flat.
