We received a report from a trail user that Google has a note that the trail is temporarily closed. That is incorrect. The trail is open for its entire 51 mile length.

We will always post any closures due to trees down, landslides, work areas or other issues here on Facebook for the latest status or you can call 814-275-1718 for information. Right now the trail is open all the way. Our volunteers do our best to keep the trail open at all times.

We just walked from NB to mile marker 18 and the trail was clear. Thank you for the hard work clearing the trees!

We rode on the Sligo Spur on Sunday and there is a branch down slightly before the four mile marker. There is also a red gate down at the road crossing at around the same point. The branch isn't large so you can easily lift your bike over it but I thought you might want to fix the gate and could cut the branch at the same time. Sorry, I didn't think to take pictures. Other than that, the trail up from the Allegheny River and back was in great shape! Thanks for all your hard work!

Thank you!

We have a tree down on the New Bethlehem side of the trail just upstream of the Bostonia Bridge to South Bethlehem. You should still be able to get by it.

Please report any downed trees with location, type, size and photo if possible. Thanks.

Pictured is Birdman, a sculpture that was donated by a now deceased trail supporter. The second bird from the left has been stolen. This is a devastating development because RVTA is trying to bring art to add to the beauty of nature for all to enjoy. The value of the cardinal makes the theft at least a misdemeanor and possibly a felony if there was damage to the rest of the sculpture. This theft is being reported to the police department for prosecution. If you find the Cardinal or know of who stole this piece of art, please have them turn it in to the Brookville police department, Brookville Borough Council office or drop it off at the foot of the sculpture for restoration to its place, or to RVTA's office at 419 Arch Street, New Bethlehem, no questions asked. Theft and vandalism has no place in our community when so many work so hard to make it an enjoyable place for all. ... See MoreSee Less

Awe ..that’s awful. Praying that the person or persons responsible will do the right thing.

This makes me so sad to think anyone would destroy the art sculpture! Just disgusting people act like this.

So sad ! And I agree with Diana

I Love birdman. So sad it has been vandalized.

People have no respect for anything!!

I was out on the trail on the 9th around noon and, didn't know there were to be 3 birds, but there were only two on the statue at that time. Not sure if that information is of any help, but.

This so saddens me!!!

That is just sad. You have to feel sorry for those who have nothing better to do than destroy what others have created for the betterment of thier fellow man.

So terrible

Takes all kinds--unfortunately the few rotten apples spoil it for all! What a LOSER he/she must be to do something like this!!!

Hope it is recognized and recovery. Thieving idiots

Stupid ignorant people makes me so mad...what would be the point of stealing that bird?..leave things alone!!!

Don't know for sure, but I'd guess the same artist did this one, located at Mile Marker 16, south of Climax tunnel. The red birds seem to be a theme.

Very nice but I don't remember them asking if they could use my likeness...

Both sculptures are by Massachusetts artist Dale Rogers, along with several other sculptures on the trail. The one near mile 16 is Bird in Hand.

They are wonderful

Awesomeness
