THE TRAIL, YESTERDAY AND TODAY:
The Beaver River Trail Association was formed in
December 1998, the first of its kind in Beaver County, to begin developing a hiking and bicycling trail along the Beaver River.
Work on the first section of the trail started in 2005, which opened for public use in April 2006. This
section provides an aproximately one mile, 10 foot wide trail that is paved and clearly marked. The trail
offers spectacular views of the Beaver River and the Eastvale dam.
The Rails to Trails Association continues to
work on extending the rail from 23rd Street north along the river to the northern edge of Geneva College campus. Plans
are eventually to extend the trail through Big Beaver and Koppel Boros to the Lawrence County line and possible link
up with other trails.
DIRECTIONS TO THE TRAIL
From 7th Avenue (Main Street) in Beaver Falls, turn south towards the Beaver River at 11th Street, proceed down
11th Street until you pass 1st Avenue, and you will see the signs marking the beginning of the trail.
