About East Branch Trail – Spartansburg
The East Branch Trail was originally a railway line built in the 1860s to connect nearby cities of Titusville and Corry and their burgeoning populations, spurred by the discovery of oil outside of Titusville. Trains of various owners ran on the line until 1978.
Ten years later, the Clear Lake Authority in Spartansburg purchased the defunct rail corridor and helped shape it into the 17-mile multi-use trail it is today. The trail has paved and crushed limestone sections, as well as share the road portions on low-volume roads.
