Chester Valley Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

Chester Valley Trail currently stretches 13 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).

An additional mile is open in Exton, but is disconnected from the rest of the trail. This short section, on the trail’s western end, runs between Iron Lake Drive and a point behind commercial properties on Commerce Drive. It will be connected to the main stretch of trail at N. Ship Road during Phase III of the trail’s development, set to begin construction in 2014.

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

Parking for the Chester Valley Trail is available at Exton Park on Church Farm Lane in Exton. Farther east, 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).

This is a great trail for those that want to get in a good workout either running or biking without battling the hills of Chester County. Very well maintained with good shade. The trail section near Exton out to CFS has a lot of points where you cross more
