Trail Overview

Redbank Valley Trails is a 51-mile non-motorized, 4-season trail currently being improved and maintained mainly by volunteers. It was recognized by DCNR as PA’s first Trail of the Year for 2014 for its scenic beauty, connections to other trails and the amazing dedication and hard work of our volunteers. 42 miles parallel the scenic Red Bank Creek through mostly natural areas over many bridges and stone arches. Trail improvements began in late 2010. Please be patient with us as we work to develop and maintain the trails. PLEASE CHECK OUR CURRENT STATUS REPORT AND FACEBOOK for current trail conditions and progress on the disastrous flood of July 19, 2019 that created a gap in the trail at mile 19 by destroying the stone arch bridge over Long Run.

Redbank Valley Trail connects to the Armstrong Trail and from there to the Erie to Pittsburgh Trail Alliance trails, the Great Allegheny Passage to D.C., and will eventually connect from Rockwood on the Passage to the 9-11 Memorial Trail when that trail is developed. It is also part of an initiative to connect Pittsburgh via the Redbank Valley Trails to Ridgway in the heart of the PA Wilds. Please enjoy your visit!
