The Pymatuning ramble and the longer Pymatuning cruise offer some of the flattest and easiest cycling in Western Pennsylvania. Starting near the dam in Pymatuning State Park, both routes head west and north to follow the shoreline of Pennsylvania’s largest reservoir. While the ramble takes the 2-mile-long causeway shortcut, the cruise heads farther north to Linesville, where three exciting rest stops await. Take your pick of a state fish hatchery and aquarium, a wildlife museum, or an opportunity to feed the fish at the spillway, a place so congested with carp that ducks literally walk on the fishes’ backs. Stop at one of several restaurants along the route, or plan a picnic at one of many waterfront sites along the lake. Plan to stay at one of the many campgrounds surrounding the lake and spend the evening fishing one of the state’s hot spots.
