This past Sunday, October 13th, we rode the Moraine State Park Bike Trail along the northern shore of Lake Arthur.
Moraine State Park is a Pennsylvania state park. It is located near the crossroads of I-79 and I-80 in Butler County. The park’s main feature is its man-made lake, Lake Arthur.
Our origin point for our bicycle ride was off North Shore Drive, at the bike rental place. Our end point was at the Moraine Outdoor Center.
Moraine State Park Bike Trail is asphalt paved in very good condition. It is an in and out, not loop, trail. The trail passes picnic areas, several parking lots, and restrooms. There are a few hill climbs. For the most part, though, the trail consists of gently rolling hills and several bends (some tight). We rode through both tree shaded and open sections and enjoyed the lake views along the way.
This is a video that Bob took with our GoPro7 camera during our bicycle ride.
I took several still images, while bicycling the trail.
It appears that the Outdoor Center itself offered food and beverages at one time. We met a woman on the grounds, who said that the building has been closed for some time.
In the GoPro video that I shared earlier, Bob captured me climbing up the hill that I hiked down to take this picture (and the next).
