David S. Ammerman Trail

Formerly known as the Clearfield and Grampian Trail, this 10.5 mile rail trail provides scenic views of rivers, creeks, farms, and forests. In 2011, the name was changed to the David S. Ammerman Trail in memory of the man who helped make this trail a reality.

This trail is about 2 hours from Pittsburgh. I stopped here on my way to vacation on the Pine Creek Rail Trail. It was a nice way to break up the long drive to the Pine Creek Gorge area. I parked at the Clearfield trailhead and rode through to the Grampian trailhead, passing through the city of Curwensville about midway on the trail. 

Railroad bridge over West Branch Susquehanna River.

From Curwensville to Grampian there is a slight upward incline, but barely noticeable. Trail surface was well maintained and smooth. There are a few road crossings, but they are not dangerous. Overall a great trail, I would definitely ride this again!
