We often ride our bicycles on the Cumberland Valley rail trail. It's mostly flat, with some short hills at the road crossings. Only a short portion, near the Newville trailhead, is paved; the rest is gravel/crushed stone. The surface is okay, but it's probably time...More

NicE Trail through the countryside/farm land. Needs some maintenance to fill areas that have ruts or wash out. Some areas (hills) are paved but the rest is small gravel. Generally not too busy. An occasionally horse on the horse trail.

Very nice trail. Level, crushed gravel. Shaded & open areas. The trailheads at Newville & Shippensburg were very nice with lots of parking, shaded picnic tables. Every person we passed said HELLO! We casually biked the trail over 2 days, starting from Shippensburg first &...More
