Paulinskill Valley Trail

Nice trail if it hasn't rained

January, 2023 by mick22

The trail is a bit more rugged and not as well maintained as the other NJ trails, though a hybrid bike will do the job. West of Blairstown Airport there are a few short sections where you have to get off the bike and deal with steep embankments. There are also a few weird places that seem like dead ends...you come to a road crossing and need to follow it a bit before the trail resumes on the other side. They could use a little signage in these areas...having Google Maps on my phone came in handy on a few occasions.

A good starting point for the Western section is the park at 5 Foot Bridge Lane in Blairstown, and for the Eastern area there's a small lot at 106 County Rd 519 in Newton.

Don't even think of going if it's been raining in the last few days. The last time I went there I parked at the Foot Bridge Lane lot in Blairstown and headed East...I slogged through and around mud flats for a few miles before I came to an impassable one and had to turn around. You also learn pretty quickly to be on the lookout for horse calling cards.

Other than these drawbacks it can be a nice ride...people you meet are friendly and for the most part you're away from traffic noises and off the beaten path.

First Time Starting in Bristol

December, 2022 by rwblackwell

I just discovered the trail and rode it for a few miles earlier today, starting in Bristol. I thought the trail would have gone right next to the Delaware River (like the Schuylkill River Trail), but the path is a bit inland from the river. The path is small gravel. It’s not the most scenic path, but it’s in decent shape. I’ll probably only ride it again if I have the time to make it up to. We Hope.

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.

Iroquois Trail

Simple, a short ride through the woods. Not much to look at besides trees, the end is anticlimactic. Good for beginners.

Lackawanna River Heritage Trail

Love it but needs benches

October, 2022 by bcklymis

I saw someone else doing a review and she was absolutely right it does need benches.

Lackawanna River Heritage Trail

love it.

October, 2022 by bcklymis

I know a lot of people that are using this for biking don’t like how it is broken up but for walking the shorter ones are easier it kind of makes you feel accomplished.

Paulinskill Valley Trail

Watch out for horse poop

October, 2022 by choops104

People use the trail for horse back riding, not sure why the horse can't have a poop bag on them, or why riders do not have to clean it up. This trail should be for everyone. Great place to get shoes covered in horse poop and good luck on a bike you will be covered in it.

Great trail. Weak tie in to D & L trail

September, 2022 by aldcon_tl

Great trail. Paved. In great condition and a great ride to get a feel for the history of how this area was a key part in the birth of the steel and cement industries. Much shade on ride.
Only drawback is no signage and and no arrows painted on pavement to find your way to switch over to D & L trail on the other side of the river. To plan for this the workaround is Rails to Trails maps and Google maps combined.

Disappointing for Bikes - Excellent for Hiking

August, 2022 by raydearmas

Thought I could make a day trip of biking and paid $10 to park at Milford Beach with the intent of taking the 31 mile trail then return back to the parking lot. The trail is easily accessible from the parking lot. All good for about 3.5 miles on a beautiful gravel path. Passed by Raymondskill area and found that one I had two choices with the bike - climb up very steep rock rustic steps or take the highway (206/209?) on my bike. Riding winding roads with cars zooming by wasn’t an option for me.

Paulinskill Valley Trail

ZERO PARKING

August, 2022 by danielhoetzlein

Drove all the way across the state from PGH. Went to the southern part/start of the trail. It’s a grass trail and has no parking, not even at a near by business/plaza. So we drove further north up the trail. The lowest access/parking spot was not accessible due to the bridge being closed. After that, we gave up. (Side note, if you’re not familiar with this area keep in mind that the traffic is horrific. I-80 was gridlocked in both directions (one being a toll stretch ugh) and there was no accidents. Locals said that’s the norm. It took us 35min to drive 6 miles. Then the same thing back. I would suggest avoiding the southern end of this trail, it’s a complete hot mess.

Bridge out at Ringing Rocks Park

August, 2022 by wolinskys_tl

The bridge over high falls creek north of ringing rocks Park is out. The creek gorge is 20-25 feet deep. It’s extremely difficult and dangerous to carry bikes up and down the sides of the gorge.

Fantastic, easy, scenic bike ride

August, 2022 by cat1966

Went on a very sunny, hot (upper 90s) day. Trail is completely paved. Lots of shaded areas. Great historical scenery and info. The only area that sort of freaked me out was riding past the rod and gun club. In certain areas, I could see gaps in the barriers. Yikes! But otherwise, very fun, easy ride!
