Gerard Trail & Bike Trail Loop

4.6 Miles Hard

Oil Creek State Park
Near Titusville, Pennsylvania

The Gerard Trail & Bike Trail loop in Oil Creek State Park, PA, is a moderate 4.6 mile hike that starts at the north entrance of the park.

This trail spans ~2 miles of the Gerard Trail, then crosses the suspension bridge to the bike trail on the opposite side of the river.

You'll hike along the Gerard Trail until heading downhill on switchbacks towards the suspension bridge. Along the way, you'll find old metal shacks that were built to house oil machinery. Some of these shacks and machines can be found along the hillside.

Once you make it across the suspension bridge, head back north along the Bike Path Trail to parking for an additional ~2.6 miles or so to make a 4.6 mile loop.
