This short section of the Allegheny River Trail in Kennerdell, Pennsylvania is an easy 1.8-mile out-and-back hike from mile 23 to 24 and back to parking. This is a flat and paved trail that runs the length of the Allegheny River and is part of the Erie to Pittsburgh Trail.

We stumbled on this trail after trying to reach Freedom Falls, which is currently inaccessible to drive to due to the closed bridge on the road. The closed bridge to Freedom Falls, along T522, is just a stones-throw away from the parking lot here.

Follow the trail from the parking lot and head up the small hill to the paved trail and follow the trail north along the river, with the river to your left-hand side.

The trail goes on for dozens of miles, hence why we only walked a couple here; however, it does not link up with Freedom Falls unfortunately. If you plan to reach Freedom Falls from the parking lot here, it's a 10-mile bushwhack - up and down massive and steep hills to get there. This parking lot is likely the closest place you can park to reach Freedom Falls, which is a shame.

Waterfalls: During the rainy seasons you can find waterfalls cascading down the hillsides along the cliffs next to the trail. Some of the waterfalls are a bit tough to see since they sit far back from the trail, but are really nice nonetheless.

Dogs and biking are both allowed on this trail.

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.
