“The Panhandle Trail runs 29 miles (47 km).”
— Jeffrey Go
The Panhandle Trail is a rail trail in southern Pennsylvania and the northern panhandle of West Virginia. It occupies an abandoned railroad corridor that had been known as the Panhandle route which has been converted to a bicycle and walking trail. The rail line was abandoned in 1992.
Although the Panhandle Trail occupies 29 miles of the Panhandle Route, the remaining portion of the route is owned by the Pittsburgh and Ohio Central Railroad, but it is very rarely used and may not be open to public use.
