Royersford Riverfront Trail

Nice riverfront park trail

May, 2024 by marksv

I knew about this trail in Royersford, but just discovered that it connected to the SRT. It would be even better if a restaurant or pub opened nearby. Most of the town is up the hill and is probably too steep for many. Plus, Main St has lots of traffic. Lots of walkers on some days so plan for a casual ride.

It is a nice little out and back from the SRT if you are looking to add a scenic detour.

Schuylkill River East Trail

One of the prettiest sections along the river

May, 2024 by marksv

I discovered this after I got my gravel bike last year. It is short however this is one of the few places you are right by the Schuylkill River for a significant amount of trail and can actually see the river. Most of the primary right of way for the SRT is either along the canal or you cannot see any scenery. There is a reason Schuylkill in Dutch I believe means "hidden river".

If you want to do a longer gravel ride under a treed canopy, park at the Longford Road Dog Park at the end of Longford Road and take the canal trail from there through Mont Clare. After crossing under PA Rt 29 you will come to the paved section of Lock 60. Go a short way and cross the little bridge on the right and that's where this trail officially begins. Worth the trip.

Note: the trail is often closed for a short duration after flooding events.

Chester Valley Trail

It is connectivity

May, 2024 by marksv

This is a local trail for me. I used it twice a week when working in West Goshen, Chester County. The trail is in very good shape and Chester County is to be commended for the trail. Today I use the trail to go deep into the hills of Chester County on my roadbike and get back to where I live not far from Valley Forge.

The good: It provides non-car connectivity! The surface is very good and provides the ability to get in and out of the area without cars. The canopy of trees as you get towards Montgomery County is great on hot days.

The not so good: There are a significant number of road crossings. The trail also parallels US 202 and is noisy in many spots.

I can't wait until the trail is extended further into beautiful Chester County. It is a shame it doesn't connect directly to Malvern, Paoli or Downingtown Boros.

Pennypack Trail

Overall very good trail but an exception…

May, 2024 by carlschrass_tl

This is, generally, an enjoyable ride, an unexpected green oasis in a congested urban landscape. However, at the southern end, between Torresdale Av. and State Rd., the trail is in pretty poor condition, especially in the amount of mud that has been allowed to accumulate on it. That stretch just projects an indifference on the part of the city to what was a really nice civic resource when it first opened.

Henry Hudson Trail

Great Views

May, 2024 by jorgeosoria

I completed 26 miles this morning with beautiful views of the jersey shore..Trail is paved and can be completed on a road bike. Trail splits twice and it is quite confusing as to where the trail picks up again. Make sure you have you phone for map details or plan ahead. Other than that a nice trail.

D&L Trail

D & L from Jim Thorpe

April, 2024 by bsnicholson63

Rode 10 miles north from Jim Thorpe parking lot today. Very nice ride along the Lehigh River. Parking lot was 2/3rds full so easy to off load bikes and pay the $8 at the kiosk. Trail is well marked and easy to navigate. The only issue is the compacted stone has turned into several inches of loose sand in some areas. Between miles posts 110-112 it was most noticeable. My wife and I have regular 2 inch mountain bike/cruiser tires, so the sand slowed us down but did not stop us. Roadbikers may have more trouble. All in all it is a great section and worth Another vists. And some really nice old trains to He k out.

D&L Trail

Narrow Gorge with Lovely Waterfalls

April, 2024 by aguttell

Truly a magical and wonderful place.

The wide crushed stone trail is nestled on a shelf between the Lehigh River and the vertical gorge wall of red/purple/brown shale and sandstone. The rushing river alternates between white water and calmer sections. North of Rockport, there are a number of remnants of the locks that were built with the local rock during the industrial revolution. The vertical gorge wall is exposed rock in many parts and covered with mountain laurel in others. The wider sections of the valley are forested with hemlock and hardwoods. Throughout the entire trail waterfalls and rushing streams cascade down the gorge wall and into the river. Even during the this rainy spring, the trail was puddle and mud free and in great condition from Glen Onoko to White Haven.

Thompson Park Trails

Moderately Sized Park

April, 2024 by z4g9gshqpr

Good for a light ride but better suited for runners and walkers. Excellent spot for children learning to bike.

West Deptford Scenic Trail

great beginner trail

April, 2024 by mattf5164

Trail was really nice and there was a lot of shade. It was pretty cool to see different types of trees with descriptions. However the end of the trail was flooded and had to walk back.

Pennypack Trail

Missing signs

March, 2024 by margatt58

The Pennypack is an incredibly scenic trail and well maintained. It’s definitely a year round rideable path. As a new rider of the trail, I thought there could be a few more signs with distances given; it would be nice to know if there are services nearby at crossroads/junctions. I also felt there was a lack of signs at Lorimer Park (riding south) showing the link to the Delaware. I ended up at Cliff Ridge Park with no sign/map indicating where to go next.

Perkiomen Trail

Bridge is Open

March, 2024 by purnell4

Very nice ride. We parked at Green Lane and rode to Swenksville. Stopped at Perikomen Bicycle Shop along the trail, friendly staff. There is an ice cream shop along the trail too.

Perkiomen Trail

Run, run, run

February, 2024 by geometry

This trail is an absolute gem. I have trained for all my marathons here, and never failed to qualify for Boston. Mostly a very gentle grade up northbound with a few short hills to test your power. Generally shaded so it's still nice on a warm summer day. Low lying sections do flood after very heavy rain so be warned.
