D&L Trail

Best Section Of D&L Trail So Far

August, 2022 by wlambert1

Yesterday I rode the section of trail from the trail head at the west end of the 21st street bridge in Northampton to the Gap above Slatington. The round trip was a little under 24 miles. The terrain to the gap is mostly up hill with a gain of 475 feet. Most of the trail is in deep shade which made the heat tolerable. The entire atmosphere is really great. This section of the D&L trail is in very good condition. The fine stone base is well compacted yielding a nice hard surface. It may have rained recently because there was almost no dust. There is a nice little park area in Slatington with rest rooms and a food trailer only a short distance from the trail. I didn't stop this time, but plan to stop for food on my next ride. I only have one complaint about this section of trail. There are a couple of gates where the trail crosses country roads. The gates are closed and have poles on both sides to block motorized vehicles. The polls are too close together and pose a hazard to people on bicycles. Other than that, this and the Lehigh Gorge section are my favorite sections of the D&L trail.

Swatara Rail-Trail

Fun Ride

August, 2022 by scottkris96

First mile bumpy but fine, last two narrow and all natural. The 7 miles in between are really enjoyable, gravel & decommissioned road. Can cross bridges on both ends to ride Bear Hole trail . Didn’t ride this time, but took both bridges over the Swatara creek. Trail is canopied the whole very, lots of Creek views - scenic ride.

Swatara Rail-Trail

A fun adventure

August, 2022 by caseydec

First time on this trail and rode gravel bike - had a blast with all the different trail terrain .. other reviews are spot on. This is a very unique trail! We rode in August, starting in Lickdale at Monroe huge parking area (love the grass spots), since the campground preferred people parking there instead of at their lot. Even though I read the reviews, was still surprised at the distance of the old macadam road (FYI .. it’s easy to move out and has lots of speed bumps & deer jump out). It was fun on gravel bike! As you get close to end of trail you’ll cross Swopes Vally Road .. be prepared if you go the next 1.7 miles (Northern Spur) in the summer, you may experience as we did, way overgrown waist high grass, narrow paths with fun dips before you reach the field by Hampton. Was told there is a really good diner across the street. Plan to go back and glad I had my gravel bike for fun and comfort!

D&L Trail

scenic, historical, variable trail conditions

July, 2022 by marthaallyn

We planned a multi day ride from Black Diamond to Bristol. Currently we have biked as far as New Hope.
From Black Diamond to Jim Thorpe, with the exception of the White Haven work around which has no signage, the trail is in excellent-to-good condition. In White Haven there is a section of the trail that is being improved, however, there is NO signage and no local dependable local knowledge. If you're there, take Tawanda Rd into White Haven. Turn left onto River St. Bridge, cross the Lehigh River and take an immediate right onto River Road. Go several miles, turning right onto Tannery Rd. Cross back over the Lehigh River and the Tannery Trailhead is immediately on your left. Its smooth sailing and beautiful in the gorge to Jim Thorpe after that.
From Jim Thorpe to Weissport is gorgeous. Weissport to Cementon the trail has very large gravel in sections and degrades. The trail basically drops out in Cementon. Its not completed yet. We could not find signage nor a safe work around. Perhaps people who know the area know the back roads to take. We found Saylor Park which was interesting.
From Allentown to Easton, some sections were okay, some were in poor condition especially just north of the National Canal Museum.
We encountered very poor trail conditions from just south of Easton to just north of Uhlerstown. Much of the trail is large gravel, single-track, rutted, rocks and roots. Between lock 20 and 19 there is a huge wash out which is poorly marked without detour signage approaching from the north and no signage approaching from the south. River Road is an easy work around, if you know the area, but it has a lot of traffic and no shoulder. By the time we arrived in Uhlerstown, we decided to take the D & R trail south out of Frenchtown. This trail is well-maintained, shaded and follows the Delaware River. There is a short detour from a washout just north of Lambertville that is an easy work around on New Jersey's River Road which has a nice shoulder. Tomorrow we'll try another section of the D & L south of New Hope to George Washington Crossing, we'll see if the trail is in better condition in that section.
We have biked many multi-day canal trails over the years. We find this trail quite frustrating due to its poor detour signage and lack of cautions about trail conditions. In our experience this information is routinely provided on other trails. The reason I'm giving this review 4 stars and not 3 is because of the scenic and historical value of the trail.

Schuylkill River Trail

Ok but only so so

July, 2022 by gary.edwards

Rode from Birdsboro down and thru Pottstown. Stay out of Pottstown, nothing good about riding in town on those streets. Berks county part of the trail is narrow but smooth cinder. Montgomery county all paved and wider. Want to ride north from Birdsboro some day but confused about unconnected sections.

Lebanon Valley Rail-Trail

Pleasant Ride

July, 2022 by bdowley

I came to scope out this and the connecting Conewago Recreational Trail for my wife and her dog trailer. Mostly shady there is a nice variety of woods, fields, and trail side back yards and regular benches. The surface is well maintained with mowed grass shoulders most of the way. For a midweek morning ride I saw a dozen walkers, another dozen bikers, two folks on horseback, along with a fawn and some smaller critters actually on the trail.

Luzerne County Levee Trail

Too broken up

July, 2022 by loomis13

The trail parts are nice with beautiful views, but its broken apart with large gaps in the middle. Good amount of hills but also alotta flat parts. Pretty well paved

Lackawanna River Heritage Trail

Mostly pleasant

July, 2022 by loomis13

The paved parts were nice, we felt safe, and there was plenty of history to look at but only 4 miles is bikeable, after that it just goes off into swamp. The other end near the high school just turns into a dirt trail. The lack of signs and arrows was a little problematic, had to backtrack twice. Plenty of portojons so that was nice.

D&L Trail

Treacherous

From Stockton to Bulls Island is treacherous. Several washouts and rocky with ruts. Single track and not very wide. Wife hit a rut and fell down the embankment. Only a tree saved her from hitting the water.

Union Canal Trail

Parking and Trail Info

July, 2022 by michelelsensenig

Parking available at Gring’s Mill Recreation Area off Tulpehocken Rd. The trail is beautiful but be aware of loose gravel when biking. It can be a little dicey in some areas. Trail also has a few hills. There is a lot of wildlife to be seen. We road the entire trail up and back. During our ride we saw many birds, squirrels, groundhogs, and deer. Remember this is canal trail, it is narrower than a rail trail. We noticed other patrons were not staying to their side or walking/riding 2 across the trail with no regard to others. This was the first we had encountered this on a trail since we started biking rail trails 5 years ago.
