Here you'll find links to pages that gives information on each of the parking areas on the Pine Creek Rail Trail. I've added pictures of the locations and I will tell you what amenities are at each location. I've started my trip at the Jersey Shore Parking area and all the driving distance estimations will originate from that point.
NOTE: You are allowed to park over night at all of the designated Pine Creek Rail Trail Parking Locations.
-Pine Creek Rail Trail, Pa Parking Locations-
First of all, to get to the Jersey Shore Parking Area you'll want to travel Interstate 220. From Interstate 220 you'll take the Thomas Street exit and head into town. At the bottom of the hill, as soon a you get
into town, you'll find Railroad Street. Turn right at the light and just a bit down you'll find the Jersey Shore Parking Area for the Pine Creek Rail Trail.
- For our purposes this will be mile marker 0.0
From the Jersey Shore Parking Area you will want to turn left onto Railroad street and head toward Avis. You'll come to an intersection where you'll see W & W Body Shop on the left hand side. Turn right and you will turn onto State Route 44 North. Continue on 44 for the following rail trail parking areas:
Once you cross the bridge at Waterville you'll travel about a half mile or so until you'll see a "Y" in the road. Take the road to the right which will be State Route 414 North and travel it for the following rail trail parking areas:
- 1.9 Miles from Black Walnut Bottom
If you continue past the Robert McCullough Jr. or Blackwell Parking area you will find quite a trip to the next rail trail parking area. First you would continue on 414 for another 5.4 miles and you'll come to an intersection where you will turn left onto 287N. Next go .7 miles, stay left on 287N. You will then travel 11.9 miles until you reach the Wellsboro area. At the second light there you will turn left onto 660W. Next, you will travel another 3.0 miles and turn right onto 362W. Lastly go another 4.7 miles and you will find the Darling Run Pine Creek Rail Trail parking area on your left.
To get to the next parking areas you will have a decision to make. First travel .8 miles further on 362W and you will come to the intersection of Route 6. If you turn right you will only find 1 more
rail trail parking area, which is the very tip of the trail. To find this area you must turn right onto 6E and travel 8.2 miles and turn left onto 287N. Go another .4 miles and you will see a street sign for Marsh Creek. Turn left onto Marsh Creek and go another .1 mile then turn left onto Butler and you will find the Stokesdale rail trail parking area. This area is not marked with a sign.
Note: You can also get to the Stokesdale parking location by turning right onto Route 660 East / 287 North in Wellsboro. You will then travel .2 miles and stay straight on 6 West/287 North, take a left when you come to a "Y" in the road (If you turn towards McDonalds you went the wrong way). From the "Y" in the road you will travel 2.8 Miles and veer right onto 287 North. Go another .4 miles and you will see a street sign for Marsh Creek. Turn left onto Marsh Creek and go another .1 mile then turn left onto Butler and you will find the Stokesdale rail trail parking area. This area is not marked with a sign.
If you turn left onto 6W you can find two more parking locations. Just .1 miles on your left you will find the entrance to the Big Meadows Parking Area. If you turn right onto the dirt nearly across from the entrance to Big Meadows you will find the Ansonia
parking area, which is also the Horseback Riding entrance and parking..
