Loantaka Brook Reservation Trail

Nice but icy

February, 2024 by hrowan1029

We went to this trail, beginning right next to Seaton Hackney Stable, because we knew it had a paved path and we had a lot of snow. We didn't know the trail would be covered with ice and snow and after a very short walk we decided it would be wise to turn around before one of us fell. We intent to go back when the weather gets warmer because it's a beautiful park and trail.

Nice and long bike path

December, 2023 by kzhang20000

During the summer, there are more than 2 stops along the way you can buy drinks and food.

27 mile total. On my way back, I was riding against the wind, so tired......

Vanderbilt Motor Parkway

It's not bad

December, 2023 by kzhang20000

It's not too long, but watch out for sharp turns and steep climb onto the cross over bridge.
Also there were junkies in the Allie pond park parking lot asking people for money.

D&L Trail

Bethlehem Section

November, 2023 by getbobk

Love this trail in the Bethlehem area. You can access downtown Bethlehem from the trail at Main Street. From there, it's about a 10 minute walk up where you can grab a bite to eat and some refreshments. Only downside last time we were there, saw dozens of people long-term "camping" along the trail east of Bethlehem. Probably not allowed but also does not seem to be disallowed. Just want to make people aware so they are not surprised by this while on the trail.

Columbia Trail

Columbia Trail

November, 2023 by thejake91739

On an especially brisk, early morning weekday in late October, I had the pleasure of riding my bike on this beautiful trail. There were plenty of walkers and joggers for the first couple of miles, and then me on my bike.

I started at the High Bridge trailhead. The gravel trail made me wish I had my old mountain bike, but after awhile you get used to it and realize your bike isn't going to fall apart. My hybrid did just fine. Just beyond Califon the trail became hard packed dirt and allowed for a smoother, faster ride. Due to time constraints I only went eleven miles out and then back, so I didn't get to discover what the last four or five miles are like.

The Raritan River views are absolutely amazing, and the fall colors dazzling! The sounds of the river and the chirping birds are an additional joy. After Califon the terrain is more suited to land occupied by charming homes and farmland, but there is still plenty of woodlands and river. If I hadn't stopped so many times to take photos and video, I probably could have done the full thirty mile round trip.

After a couple of hours and eleven miles I turned back. It was then that I started passing many, many bicyclists. I think they preferred the warmer temps of late morning to avoid the frozen fingers I had to endure. In fact, I was surprised at how many cars were in the High Bridge parking lot with their bike racks and many, like this Californian, with out of state plates which attests to this trail's fame and popularity. I'm just speculating, but this trail must be super busy on weekends.

What a gem of a trail! A+

Vanderbilt Motor Parkway

Entire trail now reopened, repaved, with historic signs

November, 2023 by tom0153

The history of the Long Island Motor Parkway (as it was first recalled) is revealed with signage along the length of the Parkway, including the site of the Jacob Johnson Family Burial Ground who appears in the 1830 Census as a "free colored man." At least two of his sons served in a segregated unit in the Civil War. He was a farmer in the area until retirement when he lived very close to Alley Pond.
The length of the entire park roadway, designated as part of the Greenway, has been repaved.
Review other park features when you come. In another area of the larger Alley Pond Park is found the oldest and tallest tree in NYC, already growing at the time of George Washington, known as the Alley Pond Giant. Hiking trails throughout the Park are well maintained.

Power Line Trail (PA)

I am not an owner of a dog but coming on this trail and getting to love on so many dogs makes me happy. I met some very nice people with their companions.

Barnegat Branch Trail

We started at the south end in Barnegat. We bikes the first 7 miles. There is a lot of opportunities between mile maker 2.5 and 3.5 to eat, drink, restroom.

Henry Hudson Trail

Awesome! started in Aberdeen

August, 2023 by ed.alba1

12 miles to a awesome payoff. NYC Skyline in the distance. A bit bumpy at times. Great way to get used to clipping in. You do it a lot. Lol Many road crossings. Half the ride under shade. Clean path. 2 hours there and back at 11MPH Enjoy the ride!

Pennypack Trail

La Familia Ladies

August, 2023 by ruthbasco

Todays walk was very enjoyable. It was 5 ladies walking and everyone we encountered was friendly. The walk was clear and even. We did 4 miles and I would have completed more. I would return to this trail again.

D&L Trail

Freemansburg to Hill to Hill Bridge

August, 2023 by howe.freelancer

Portions of the trail were super narrow to navigate and are almost more of a footpath. Signage isn’t the greatest, quite a few homeless camps along this section.
