Currently, the Apollo's Kiski Riverfront Trail starts where the Roaring Run Trail ends – at a trailhead at the end of Canal Road – and extends for 1.5 miles through Apollo Borough to North Apollo. Now users of the Roaring Run Trail can ride into downtown Apollo, where they can patronize restaurants and historical sites. Eventually, trail developers hope to extend the trail to the west along the north bank of the Kiskiminetas River.
