My Fav Place to Ride

July, 2020 by cmaylward

This is my favorite place to ride. So scenic in all seasons including a red covered bridge. Plenty of parking spots, water fountains and restrooms. Trail is for all levels. There are 2 steep hills on one side but just stick to the other side of the creek to exclude them.

Royersford Riverfront Trail

short but sweet

July, 2020 by joelkring

Not bad for an urban trail, to one side is buildings, to the other side is the river. The trail and the park it travels through are well maintained. Worth a visit if you are riding the Schuylkill River Trail through Spring City.

Frog Hollow Trail

not worth the time

July, 2020 by joelkring

Beside there being no place to park, except along the narrow road, there is no clear entrance from the road onto the trail. Add to that the trail is becoming overgrown by lawns, due in large part to its short length (the 0.4 mile length is generous) and poor access. Not recommended.

Limerick Trail

Nothing special

July, 2020 by joelkring

We rode this trail on a sunny morning in late June, one of 8 trails we rode that day. Unless you are also trying to ride 150 trails in one year, I don't recommend this trail. Go to the nearby Limerick Community Park and enjoy that trail instead.

Heritage Rail Trail County Park

Choose start point carefully

June, 2020 by needanewid

I parked at the York Heritage Rail Trail NE Extension Rt30 Parking Lot to go biking. From there you can walk or bike north and go on a very pretty, well maintained loop for about 5 miles (bathrooms at the park at the end.). If that’s enough for you, it’s a great Trailhead. I rode that north section, then came back and went south from my start point. The first part is a very open section that runs along the creek and has cool views of the city skyline. This then takes you into York city and you must go through some sketchy neighborhoods for a mile or two. After that, you are back in the trail; it runs along the actual rail and it’s wooded and quiet. I saw a deer lazily wandering across the track. If it wasn’t for the couple of miles that made me nervous, I’d give this 5 stars. I will go again but park south of York.

Little Lehigh Parkway Path

Little Lehigh Parkway

June, 2020 by davis_melissa

I really enjoy this trail. The terrain is great for all levels and abilities as the trail is cinder for the most part which is easy on the joints, and the majority of it is relatively flat. If you do the outer most loop there will be two somewhat steep uphills and downhills but if you have concerns just take your time and they will not pose not an issue. The outer most loop comes to almost a 10k (6.2 miles) if you go from end to end. There are several bridges along the way where you can create different loops. Most of the path is well shaded which is fantastic on a hot, sunny day. Today we started at the "Runner's House" and went to Fish Hatchery Road, where we then did a loop around the fish hatchery. We then headed back on the opposite side of the river and looped back at the bridge with the parking lot near the opposite entrance. This gave us about 5.28 miles total.

Warwick-to-Ephrata Rail-Trail

Very Nice

June, 2020 by dcsnyder

Rode entire trail. Very nice, much to see. Loved the paved sections. Some inclines but easy enough. Well maintained. It was busy on a Saturday. Very friendly people on the trail.

Enola Low Grade Trail

Nice Flat trail, not much to see.

June, 2020 by dcsnyder

Road from 2 miles east of trail until the closed section. so 24 miles. The 2 miles to Quarryville is very rough. Then it becomes a nicer gravel, flat and straight. Not much to see as there are tree lines on both sides. Wide trail. Probably better to ride when trees are bare. Like that it's open all year and probably great for cross country ski.

Swatara Rail-Trail

Good trail, but needs improvements

June, 2020 by davehrobuchak

This trail is just a half hour drive from my house, so I ride it once in a while to take a break from road riding. From the southern main trailhead parking lot going north, the trail is a fine grit surface, but then becomes a coarse gravel surface for two or so miles that is unpleasant to ride on. This gravel should be removed and replaced with fine grit. Next the trail transitions to pavement, which essentially compromises the aesthetic of a rail to trail and should be replaced with fine grit. The trail again transitions to fine grit for a few miles, but finally transitions to soil with grass/weeds. Yesterday there was ponding water on this section as deep as 3 or 4 inches and we didn’t even bother to ride the last 2 miles of the trail; this area requires improvements as well. This trail is amongst forest and a stream, but the nearby interstate highway noise is noticeable. Overall, the trail is enjoyable, but it could use the noted improvements.

Uwchlan Trail

Nice Trail with some climbing

June, 2020 by sandymo

I rode this a few weeks ago with a friend of mine who’s a hand cyclist. He’s a strong experienced hand cyclist. There are climbs that might be difficult for someone with a single speed bike and as the other reviewer said, several of the road to bridge and back transitions are not smooth. In addition, a few are too tight for a trike to make the corner approach. This is a great walking/running trail and should still be ok for someone on a bicycle with a few gears. It’s pretty and has many shaded sections.

Lebanon Valley Rail-Trail

All-around great trail

June, 2020 by robert.richter89

I rode the entire Lebanon Valley Rail-Trail starting from a nearby trailhead on the Conswego Recreation Trail and finishing at mile 15 in Lebanon. The area experienced heavy rainfall a few days before I rode but aside from a fallen tree branch on the trail that was easy to navigate I couldn't tell as the trail was in perfect condition. I did not notice any trail imperfections.

There were some mild grades that go on for a mile or two in an area or two of the trail but it makes for smooth sailing going downhill. The trail offers a lot of shade and a variety of scenery from farmlands, forests and some housing developments. There are several road crossings but most were not very busy even in Lebanon. The trail was pretty busy on a beautiful Sunday but everyone on the trail was polite and considerate. I did notice that the Cornwall and Colebrook trailheads were very busy so plan on arriving early to assure yourself a spot there.
