Sandy Creek Trail
Get started with the 12-mile Sandy Creek Trail in Venango. Start in the village of Van and enjoy downhill cruising for the first eight miles of this paved trail. Then pedal the final four miles along the western bank of the Allegheny River to Fisherman’s Cove. Along the way, you’ll cross the 1,385-foot Belmar Bridge, go through the Sandy Creek Tunnel, and cross numerous railroad trestles with far-reaching views of the surrounding forests and hillsides. For a more challenging ride, start at Fisherman’s Cove and get ready to feel the burn as you pedal those last eight miles uphill!
