Chester Valley Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

Chester Valley Trail currently stretches 14 miles between Exton and King of Prussia. Its west end is anchored by Exton Park, while its east end stops just shy of the King of Prussia Mall. Along the way, the trail also passes through Tredyffrin Township and includes a bridge crossing of Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway).

When fully complete, the trail will continue farther east and west from Norristown to Downingtown—connecting to a number of other regional trails in both cities—via a former railroad corridor.

Parking and Trail Access

To access the parking lot at the Exton Park Trailhead, drive east on East Swedesford Road and turn right onto Church Farm Lane. (Note that you will not be able to access the trailhead via Church Farm Lane coming from Lincoln Highway/Business 30 because Church Farm Lane is a private road on the south side of the trail.)

Farther east, you can park at Battle of the Clouds Park on Phoenixville Pike in East Whiteland Township.

Additional parking is available at East Whiteland Township’s municipal building on State Route 401/Conestoga Road, south of US 202. Designated parking spaces are located adjacent to the trail (to the left and rear of the building).

Starting from King of Prussia (South Gulph Road Parking Area) and riding out to West Whiteland Township Trailhead (Main Street at Exton), the ride is relatively flat with a slow and constant elevation gain. Just need to be attentive around mile 7.5 when more

It is a nice long trail with things to see and do easily accessible from the trail. The only real problem is the many many crossings. Some are ok and easy, some are a lot more difficult. Currently part of the trail is under repair so there is a clearly more
