The 35 mile long Armstrong Trail is located on the former Allegheny Valley Railroad line along the eastern bank of the Allegheny River in Armstrong and Clarion Counties. The trail links such towns as Ford City, Kittanning and East Brady and is a great place to bicycle, walk, jog, bird watch, geocache or exercise in a safe relaxing environment. Horseback riding and cross country skiing are also possible on designated sections. The trail is for non-motorized use only.
20 miles of trail have been improved with crushed limestone or asphalt surface. Funding for materials and volunteer labor have been secured for another 6 miles of trail targeted for completion by 2013. Plans are being developed to improve trail conditions and to better establish connections with the Redbank Valley Trails and others in the Erie to Pittsburgh Trail. Please visit the Interactive Google Map under Trail Maps for updated information on trail improvements, trail surface, and photos of the trail.
