The Avonmore Branch Trail at the Pasternak Recreation Area in Avonmore, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.8-mile out-and-back grass-surfaced rail-trail, which runs on the former right-of-way of the Avonmore Branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad. It ends by a fence, right before an old railroad bridge which runs above the western Salina Tunnel portal.

It starts in the Pasternak Recreation Area/Avonmore Canoe launch, at the top of the hill (past the lake) on the right side.

Length (0.4 miles) is currently (2019) estimated one-way length.

Note that there are not currently (summer 2019) any signs or the like pointing out where the trail is.

Pets: Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
