Please see Development News  for work in progress.

The Brookville Tunnel at mile post 41.11 and 2 bridges to the east are CLOSED with no current plans or funding for rehabilitation. PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THE TUNNEL FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY.

A bridge was removed at Middle Run Road at MP 21.76 and replaced with steep (10-12% grade) ramps.  Walking your bike is recommended.

The area from Middle Run Road at mile 21.75 west or downstream through Brinker Ave. at mile 21.1 in Fairmount City has not been improved with crushed limestone or compacting yet. DEP finished their work on adjoining property in November 2018.  RVTA hopes to get that section completed early Spring 2019 but in the meantime it is walkable.

The CLIMAX TUNNEL at Mile Post 17 is now open!!  Use caution as the asphalt surface may be slippery in cold weather. Walking your bike and using a light is recommended in both the Long Point and Climax Tunnels.

Work has been done on the northern 5 miles of the Sligo Spur from SR 861 to Walker Farm Road a mile south of Sligo.  The remaining 3 miles from mile 1 to 4 at SR 861 has not yet been improved although work is now underway.  The 2 trestles on the lower spur were decked and railed early in Spring 2018 . The Cherry Run bridge near Spur mile 6 has been decked and railed.  Naming rights for the 3 bridges are still available as memorials for a donation of $5000 each.

Please check Facebook or our current status report for updates on trail conditions.  Improvements are made as funding and volunteer time permits. Your help and patience are appreciated.
