welcome to kinzua valley trail

Hike, bike, or ski the beautiful Kinzua Valley Trail in Northwestern Pennsylvania! Travel along the banks of the Kinzua Creek through vibrant forest and marshland bounding with wildlife. Just bring your boots, bike, or skis and take to the trail for serenity or adventure.

Snowshoeing is gaining popularity on the trail, and sections of the trail will soon be open for Equestrian Use.

With grant funding and the tireless effort of dedicated volunteers, the Kinzua Valley Trail Club added 4 miles to the trail in 2016 -- and they continue to Blaze the Trail! Presently, the KVT spans 7 miles, starting at the trailhead in the Village of Westline and continuing to Red Bridge Recreation Area of the Allegheny Reservoir. But, work is ongoing to extend the trail all the way to Kinzua Bridge State Park near Mount Jewett for a total of 21 miles!

The Kinzua Valley Trail Club, a non-profit organization formed in 1999, maintains the trail with the goal of providing accessible outdoor experience through all four seasons. Dedicated volunteers put in the heavy lifting to keep the KVT in top shape, but none of it would be possible without the financial support of memberships, donations, and fundraising events.
