Isaac Branch Greenway Trail

My local favorite

January, 2023 by fifty3tango

This is a great trail, well maintained, connects to other trails and full of wildlife. I have walked biked and run this trail for over ten years and it's never crowded. There is a small parking area on the southern end at the Rt 10 trail head with direct access to the trail. It's my go to place to walk my dogs or a bike ride without traffic.

Enola Low Grade Trail

Nice easy ride

December, 2022 by wadebusha

It's nice to be able to ride all the way through again but Too bad they had to build this hideous concrete and steel bridge though, instead of finding the person who burned the old one and hanging them from the trestle as an example.

Exeter Scenic River Trail

scenic, but a bit rough for biking

December, 2022 by joelkring

We rode this trail on a Monday in early December when the temp. was in the low to mid 40s. We rode past the gate at the end of the parking lot and onto a wide path with a fine stone surface. After about a half of a mile the trail surface changed to a more coarse stone surface. The is one short steep section near the end of the trail. The scenery is very nice, even with leaves on the trees.

Angelica Creek Trail

still needs improvements

December, 2022 by joelkring

Its been 5 years since we last did this trail and not much has changed. Starting at the Brentwood parking lot the trail descends on a paved surface that has many stones, up to 2" to 3" in size, from a road running parallel to the trail, making the decent less fun and more stressful. The trail turns right at the bottom of the hill and becomes a wide path covered with fine stone. It doesn't last long and soon the trail surface is a mix of mid size stone and gravel. The trail improves for a short time near the education building but not for long. There are several intersections that are not marked as which way to turn and the trail, while paved, is in need of repair. After crossing a road and climbing a short but quite steep hill the trail resembles more a mountain bike trail, little more than a dirt single track. After a short (a block or 2) on road the trail again is more like a mountain bike trail. Just before it reached the end there was a 12 inch rock in the middle of a narrow section of trail. The only reason for giving the 2 star rating is the pleasant scenery along most of the trail.

Stockton Station Park Rail Trail

Great Park and Trail!

November, 2022 by eston.spain

Stockton Station Park offers peaceful and spacious amenities and an excellent paved trail. Although the length of the main trail is 0.36 miles long, there are paved sub-trails that connect the park features like ball diamonds, soccer pitch, and skateboard park and then reconnect to the main trail, allowing trail users greater than a half mile of paved walking surfaces. There are also benches and dog waste stations along the lighted trails.

Jones Falls Trail

Beautiful Trail in the Heart of Baltimore

November, 2022 by tonybonta

Love this trail. Druid Hill Park is very scenic (and will only get better as the Druid Hill Reservoir project completes hopefully next year). It's great to be able to ride all the way down to the Baltimore Visitor Center and get something to eat in the inner harbor without having to deal with major traffic.

Two things to make note of. Be prepared for some fairly decent climbs heading south to north. And it's good to have the TrailLink app installed on your phone if you haven't done the trail before and don't know the turns. There are markings on the path and sidewalks, but they're starting to fade and in the fall, leaves cover a lot of them.

Schuylkill River Trail

people complain way too much

November, 2022 by powhiteboy

This trail was great!!! Transported my bike on the Amtrak bus from Philly to Reading and then rode the SRT back to Philly, staying the night at the Doberstein Campsite. Very enjoyable trip, highly recommend it.

Gwynns Falls Trail

Stream side Trail

November, 2022 by comebackcityus

I walked the trail for about 2 miles (4 miles round trip) starting at the trail head off of Washington Blvd near Carroll Park.

The pros are the scenery, beautiful trees and the stream views. The cons are you can hear I-95 at the beginning of trail and the isolation---few trail users.

Enola Low Grade Trail

Quarryville to Safe Harbor

October, 2022 by chboddy1963

Last Friday I rode my bike 28 miles I enjoyed it

Michael N. Castle C&D Canal Trail

Great trail

October, 2022 by tpnj

Road this trail with my wife 22 October 2022. Was very beautiful and temps were in the 60’s. Went from Delaware City to Chesapeake City and back for approximately 30 miles.

Hollow Creek Greenway

Enjoyable, easy access & lots of nature

October, 2022 by lrock

The Hollow Creek is sure- a thing trail to walk, alone, or with a friend, kids, and a dog! My 2 dachshunds & I love the wide windy gravel path through wood with colorful trees, deer, streams, and flowers. The shade shelters us from light rain, winds, and hot sun. The trail is accessible from a variety of entry points because it intersects side roads connected to neighborhoods and the pathways of Dallastown Intermediate School.
Often I walk from the Valley road entrance to the end where it meets Susquehanna Trail, turn around, and walk back. My dogs love to stop at the creek and cool off, then we continue on. Often I see deer in the woods or up on the hill across from a farm. One time I saw a huge turtle hanging out and we were amazed.
Sometimes I make my walk longer by going to the connecting trail on Beck road. That trail passes a neighbor and connects to the Dallastown Intermediate School path around the school.
This trail is a great trail to take a friend who doesn't walk a lot because one can decide how long or short one wants to go. Please know the Valley Road entrance is about 2/10 of a mile from a beautiful nature walk that takes you to Richard Nixon Park.
On each walk, I finish feeling relaxed and happy. My dogs and I appreciate the wide trail especially when bikes or others need to pass around or opposite me.

Enola Low Grade Trail

Worth the Wait

October, 2022 by zave smith

On Saturday, October 22nd, my wife and I, with a few friends, road this trail from Quarryville to the Safe Harbor bridge. With the reopening of both the Safe Harbor and Martic Forge bridges, this trail has become a delight. The trail is very flat, the surface is in excellent shape, and the scenery is wonderful. It was not very busy considering that it was a beautiful autumn day for riding.

It is also only an hour from our home near Philadelphia which means it will become part of our regular rotating weekend rides.
