The recovered former rail line from Rockledge to, now, Bristol Road in Bucks County is the paradigm of rail trail projects. The missing part, though, is a southward continuation into the City of Philadelphia, maybe a mile and a half, to the Fox Chase SEPTA station. That, however, will require an uncharacteristic effort on the part of the city. At least Bucks County seems to be making steady progress in extending the trail northward to the old rail terminus in Newtown.
Despite reliable information to the contrary, the Pennypack Creek bridge gate was locked this weekend. It seems a big water lines construction project in the area of State Road and Pennypack Street has obliterated, for now, a significant length of this trail causing the closure. Looking at the scale of that project, the outlook for access to this trail for the foreseeable future seems grim.
Parked at Green Lane Park, was not aware that there is a bridge out shortly after the park. There is a workaround if you don’t mind driving on a busy road for a bit. The road is a bit hilly.
Nice ride on a Thursday night. There is street parking at the bridge end of trail. We parked in Victors pub parking loy, did our ride, then grabbed cocktails. Summer months will be very busy on weekends so suggest a weekday ride.
A previous review mentioned a homeless camp but I didn’t see any. You can walk along the creek on a dirt trail from Illick’s mill parking lot and eventually you have to cross the train tracks to pick up the paved trail. On return trip, if you miss the cross-over, just follow paved path to the end and take sidewalk back to car. It’s mostly shaded, passes thru burnside plantation. I’ll enjoy this in the hot summer because of the shade.
Beautiful wilderness amid the city.
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.
really nice & scenic BUT we went early evening. by the water we were swarmed by bugs to the point of distraction and annoyance. Grings mill area has a very clean rest room facility. If the bugs were not so bad. this would have been a 5 star.
Good walk distance for pedestrians, also to have a short run for easy runners. You can go with kids and have the option to ride the bike with a trailer.
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.
Nice flat and paved trail. Great for bike rides, scooters, jogging or walks. If you have kids, you might like that there is a playground with picnic tables along the trail. It would be nice to pack a lunch and stop to play. After you pass the playground on the trail there is an exit where you can get off the trail and cross the street to the playground.
The Chester Valley Trail now extends 5 miles east in King of Prussia to Norristown where it connects to the Schuylkill River Trail.
