Name: Pine Creek Rail Trail
Stats: 52 mi.
Speed: 11-13 mph
Start Location: Jersey Shore at Railroad Street and Humes Street
Well, this is called the East Shore Flex Ride and we’ll be really flexin’ it on Sunday morning when we start on the east shore of Pine Creek at Jersey Shore for our bike ride along the Grand Canyon of PA.
Lori & I and a couple of others are meeting 9:45 AM at the southern-most parking lot of the Pine Creek Rail Trail in Jersey Shore. We’ll be riding by 10:00 AM along the Pine Creek Rail Trail on what will be a gorgeous, sunny and warm fall day. We don’t get too many of these! So, if you are able, please take advantage and join us to see the fall foliage in the Grand Canyon of PA.
It’s a generally flat ride with a slight upgrade for 26 mi. as we ride upstream at the start and a slight downgrade as we finish the last 26 mi. The trail is packed cinders and my understanding is that it’s in good shape. I’d recommend a bike with minimum 28 mm tires…that’s what Lori & I are using.
We’ll be enjoying lunch on the deck overlooking Pine Creek around 12:15 PM at the halfway point at the Hotel Manor Bar & Restaurant in Slate Run (www.hotel-manor.com).
Following is the itinerary with approximate times:
7:15 AM - Depart from Harrisburg (Your departure time will depend on your home location. It’s a 2 hr. 15 min. ride from our house in Lower Paxton Township.)
10:00 AM – Begin biking.
12:15 PM – Lunch
1:15 PM – Begin biking back.
3:30 PM – Arrive at parking lot.

For directions, you can enter “Railroad St and Humes St, Jersey Shore” in Google Maps and it'll get you to the parking lot.
Please send me a text if you are planning on joining us so we can have a bike count before leaving at 10:00 AM.
