Redbank Valley Trails is a 51-mile non-motorized, 4-season trail currently being developed and improved. 42 miles parallel the scenic Redbank Creek through mostly natural areas. The trail travels from the confluence with the Allegheny River (MP 0) through New Bethlehem in Clarion County at the mid-point, touching on Armstrong County, through Hawthorn (near the Redbank Valley Municipal Park), Summerville and continuing currently to just beyond the Rose Siding Bridge, near Maple Street, (and MP 42) in Brookville, Jefferson County. There is also a 9-mile spur from Lawsonham to Sligo also in Clarion County.
Please check our current status report for current trail conditions. Current Status 10-3-13. Use of the trail is at your own risk.
Redbank Valley Trails connects to the Armstrong Trail and from there to the Erie to Pittsburgh Trail, the Great Allegheny Passage to D.C., and will eventually connect from Rockwood on the Passage to the 9-11 Memorial Trail and become part of the Pittsburgh to Ridgway mega-trail through Brookville. It is also part of an initiative to connect Pittsburgh to Ridgway in the PA Wilds.
Upcoming Event: Run the Redbank on October 19, 2013 in Summerville to benefit the Brookville YMCA and the Brookville Depot Street Spur Development. Run the Redbank 2013 Reg Form. Visit www.brookvilleymca.com to register on line.
