Kent Island South Trail

Nice trail

May, 2023 by electrksparky

This was my wife and I first time on this trail, we parked in the over flow parking lot I guess you don't have to pay to park in this lot where as the other lot it $2.50 hour. This is a 6 mile trail one way at the end is the Eastern Bay the Romancoke Pier, there is a restroom facility and soda machines at the end and places to sit and rest. Along the trail it is paved and one wooden bridge that you cross, there is also a golf course on this route. We rode to the end and then on our way back we rode down some of the side streets to see the homes, there were a few others riding bikes and some walking and jogging. over all a nice quick ride.

Enola Low Grade Trail

Midweek Marvel

May, 2023 by cindy.gerner.5

May 25th we rode 15 miles out and back from the Turkey Hill Preserve just off River Road. Crossing over both the Safe Harbor and Martic Trestles. Kudos to everyone who has made this trail what it is today. The condition of the trail is excellent. The trail is mostly flat both directions in the section we rode. There are plenty of wildlife especially birds including eagles and vultures. I highly recommend everyone to put this trail on their to do list.

Kent Island South Trail

Not a bad trail but not one you would want to ride every month

May, 2023 by carrollball99

This trail is quiet as far as other people are concerned. During 75% of the 6-mile trail you are riding within 10-15 yards of route 8, so there is noise from traffic. I rode this trail on a weekday, so I only saw 2-3 other bikes on the trail and 10 people walking or jogging. The first two miles of the trail are shady as you are riding through woods. There is a 2-mile section in the middle of the trail where there is no shade as you are riding past open fields. At the southern end there are flush restrooms at the Romancoke fishing pier. The are no places along the trail to get food or beverages, but these are available about 4 miles prior to arriving at the northern trailhead. There are park benches about every mile, and one picnic table, but again you are only yards off of the highway. The asphalt is in very good condition and the trail is relatively flat.


PennDel Trail

Very beautiful trails, but lots of ticks

May, 2023 by jejohnson2

We walked here for our first time and the family went went 3 hours. Trails are well maintained, nice river scenery, and clean! There is a sign about ticks, and we found 5 on us, but that was the only negative.

Northwest Lancaster County River Trail

perfect for bikes, walking, running, family

May, 2023 by nadine7410

So many things to see, side paths to the river, white cliffs of Conoy, historic towns, interpretive signs, and frequent potties ¿ The whole 14 miles was paved, but there was a small detour told it would be done soon. Nice mix of sunny and shady. Pretty busy for a weekday, don’t recommend a weekend if you avoid it.

Cross Island Trail

Mellow, beautiful, and perfect for young riders.

May, 2023 by danadominguez75

My 5 yo enjoyed this trail immensely! Frequently changing scenery. Mellow hills and turns. This is the perfect trail for new riders needing to build some skills. Shaded parking if you’re lucky. Clean restrooms at the Terrapin trailhead.

Cross Island Trail

Cross Island trail

May, 2023 by carrollball99

This trail is beautiful. The first 5 miles you are riding under a canopy of large trees on the well-shaded, pristine asphalt trail. I had only ridden a ½ mile when I came upon 5 deer just feet off the trail standing in the woods. The trail crosses several small creeks off the Chester River and the scenery is gorgeous. There are clean restrooms at the trailhead and another restroom about three miles east, just look for the large white-water tower. After you cross the Kent Narrows Drawbridge you are riding mostly on low wooden bridges over swampy areas the last 1 1/2 miles of the trail. The wooden planks are a little rough to ride on. There are several gas stations just off the trail where you could get a snack or something to drink. I tried to ride the dirt loop near the trailhead that takes you to the Chesapeake Bay but after a mile the dirt trail turned into sand and my tires were not made for this. This is a trail I will definitely ride about once a month. Maybe next time I’ll eat breakfast at home and instead stop mid-way through my ride to enjoy a seafood lunch at one of the restaurants near the narrows.

Conestoga Greenway Trail

Cruising on longboard/skateboard

May, 2023 by poetry.lover222

It’s a cool area to cruise on a longboard or skateboard. It’s hilly at some points flattish at others.

Canning House Run Trail

it’s a start

May, 2023 by redlocs_99

Basic walking “sidewalk” that’s only .8 mi, but a good start Parked at the Rodgers house. Bikes the .8 and back just to start my rambling in a new town If you follow the closed road behind Rodgers, and stay to the right,,you begin a road that goes behind lots of VA buildings to the left (fields between you and the bldgs, so it’s not like in a city , and the water to the right…very peaceful and quiet ride. Only goes maybe 3/4mi and ends at another closed (to cars)road that leads around the Perryville community park (one way, counter clockwise) and though there were families out, the road was basically deserted at 3p on a Sunday in May. It circles around the park and when u get to the opposite end of where you started, it’s the exit Technically a small winding road through the woods (fortunately onky came upon a couple of cars

Torrey C. Brown Rail Trail

Nice Trail- some surface issues

May, 2023 by dcsnyder

Rode this entire trail from Hunt Valley to New Freedom PA a day after it rained hard all day. The rain held off and the trail drained nicely. The surface was not bad until about 5 miles before the PA border got narrow and a bit rough, thus the four star rating. And its a huge difference once you cross the border in PA to the Heritage trail as the surface is nicer and wider. We stayed in Hunt Valley at the Holiday Inn Express and it was only a 1/4 mile from the trail. Don't recommend that you ride to it as the road was very busy and narrow and no shoulder
