Was excited to check it out. It was a mixture of paved, gravel and dirt with exposed roots so it went from smooth to pretty bumpy. Our group had a mix of mountain and gravel bikes and it was slow going on the rough sections. The drought made it a bit less scenic but nice pass under a trail trestle. Trail ends at Race St. and after a brief stint on roads, continues at the back of Taylor House Brewing. After that, goes on for the smallest bit before going back up to road.
This trail is perfect for beginner bicycle riders or older folks like me and my wife. It's flat, wide, and paved and maintained nicely.
Nice well maintained, shady and pleasant to ride… after a nice you have something wonderful to eat at the Lake House.
The trail is wonderful, very scenic. Wonderful for biking and hiking further north of Jim Thorpe, if possible, more benches along the trail to stop and take a rest would be nice.
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.
