Gary - I know what you mean about the lack of restroom facilities. In fact, they recently found Howard Stern's Ball Sack there, bababoyee's teeth as well. Now how did that happen?

What should someone do if they have to go to the bathroom (and I don't mean simply peeing behind a tree? Are there places to go our Port-A-Poties?

A month off the bike due to weather & holiday activities (especially ingestion of a large number of calories) has me desparate to ride: What's the trail like between Boston & W Newton??? Please??? Anyone???

Agreed, the site is outdated and it needs to be changed. It is not a good site at all. Someone needs to get in there and know what they are doing. Since I am good in developing web sites I might create a site in the near future. I will keep you posted on this.

You should clarify. The Web site you are posting these comments to IS NOT the same site with the broken links. The Yough River Trail site links to this one for the comments section.

Looks like I'll have to add another vote to say how badly done The Yough River Trail Website has become, out of date items and many links that don't work anymore. Some wrong information also. Lets try and give our World Class Trail the type of webpage it should have, Meaning nothing but the best guys.

I have to admit I agree with both Ted Howard and Sy Klist that who ever they have doing the Yough River Trail nodays is doing a bad job at keeping the site up to date. Some stuff on the site is over a few years old. (no Excuse for that). Many people use they sites to decide weather they want to come and ride on a trail. I know I do and they need to do a much inproved job of getting good information on this site. http://www.youghrivertrail.com/ Lets hope that before the next riding season starts they get things in order and give the Yough Trail a first class site like it should have. On another front I don't feel that the Yough River Transport should even have a link on the website, it's a for profit business enough said on that. I see a lot more ubofficial site that do more for the trail than it does and they have no links here.

Ted's right about this web site. Take, for example, the 'trail conditions' link. It has the potential to be a good source of information about what the surface is like today; instead, there's a so-what comment about the Big Savage River Tunnel that had to have been written last spring. If Ted wanted to drive down from Upstate NY for a weekend of cycling, and wanted to know if the trail was soft & rutted, or icy and rutted, or even smooth and firm, how would he know?

Who do they have doing the Yough River Trail Website Nowdays? http://www.youghrivertrail.com/ I think they need to get someone that knows how to do website, you have one of the best trails in the nation yet you have one of the worst sites I have ever seen. Why not ask one of the people that do one of the unofficial sites to do it, most of them are done much better and do more to promote use than the official site does.

Hello All: I am currently planninga bike trip on the C&O Canal starting in Georgetown D.C. and riding back to Connellsville on the Yough River Trail. This will be a ten day trip of about 280 miles. I will be camping and lodging depending on the weather. I have made this trip in the summer of 2003 and it was great. I am looking for a riding partner or partners on this trip. If any of you are up for the challage please reply. Thanks: David

I can't believe that there is not more disscusion about cleaning up/digging out the Bee Hive coke ovens along this stretch, so the could be seen and appreciated for the fabulous engineering. YOu can walk inside one and just feel the history. They really stick out in the fall when the leaves drop. It would make for a wonderful addition to the historical appreciation of the trail. Also at Dickerson Run (Yough Bridge at PA 819) there was a trolley/train station that was the end of the line of the West Penn Railways. There is nothing denoting this. This 5 mile section is chock full of history and it really could become one of the more interesting stretches.

Rode the re-opened Montour Trail today, on the first anniversary of the day IVAN left it's nasty mess behind. The trail re-opened in late August, and is in EXCELLENT shape! Gone are the lava stones below Robinson Towne Centre, and other than some washed out areas near Mile Post 11 (Boggs Rd) the trail has certainly come out of the storm better than it was beforehand. I recommend the 29-mile round trip from the Ohio River along Rt. 51 up to Quicksilver. Check it out! Ah - someone mentioned Whitsett... when on earth are they ever going to widen that 1 mile stretch of trail that's only like 20 inches wide? The Boston trailhead is Pittsburgh's hidden secret. You don't have to go all the way to Ohiopyle to enjoy the trail! The 4-mile stretch south of the town of Boston (starting about 3 miles south of the Boston trailhead) is just as scenic and remote as the trail in Ohiopyle State Park, and much less congested. Other than the horrible sewage treatment plant (and the bugs!) around Buena Vista, the 10 miles to Sutersville makes for a very level trip. Bring the bug spray!
