The recovered former rail line from Rockledge to, now, Bristol Road in Bucks County is the paradigm of rail trail projects. The missing part, though, is a southward continuation into the City of Philadelphia, maybe a mile and a half, to the Fox Chase SEPTA station. That, however, will require an uncharacteristic effort on the part of the city. At least Bucks County seems to be making steady progress in extending the trail northward to the old rail terminus in Newtown.
Despite reliable information to the contrary, the Pennypack Creek bridge gate was locked this weekend. It seems a big water lines construction project in the area of State Road and Pennypack Street has obliterated, for now, a significant length of this trail causing the closure. Looking at the scale of that project, the outlook for access to this trail for the foreseeable future seems grim.
Parked at Green Lane Park, was not aware that there is a bridge out shortly after the park. There is a workaround if you don’t mind driving on a busy road for a bit. The road is a bit hilly.
This was my first ride on this trail. Not too crowded for a gorgeous Sunday. I parked in Palmer Park in Chester and headed to High Bridge. The pavement for the first few miles had some rough areas but very manageable after that the pavement is very nicely packed. You can get a glimpse of the Lake Solitude from the trail but if you have the time and don’t mind riding on the road I recommend riding to the base of the waterfall. It’s worth it.Overall I enjoyed the ride and look forward to riding it in the fall.
Crushed stone most of the way made it a somewhat noisy ride. A gentle upgrade most of the way out then the reverse coming back. When on dirt was quieter and more peaceful. We rode yesterday (a Saturday) so we had lots of fellow riders on the trail. Unfortunately a good number of them fail to follow basic biking courtesy and call out when passing you. Was a lovely day to ride. The trail is well maintained and the rating of a 2 out of 3 seemed appropriate. We would definitely ride there again.
Nice ride on a Thursday night. There is street parking at the bridge end of trail. We parked in Victors pub parking loy, did our ride, then grabbed cocktails. Summer months will be very busy on weekends so suggest a weekday ride.
Good walk distance for pedestrians, also to have a short run for easy runners. You can go with kids and have the option to ride the bike with a trailer.
We walked here for our first time and the family went went 3 hours. Trails are well maintained, nice river scenery, and clean! There is a sign about ticks, and we found 5 on us, but that was the only negative.
The Chester Valley Trail now extends 5 miles east in King of Prussia to Norristown where it connects to the Schuylkill River Trail.
I hiked this on 4/22/23 ! It is a really nice!
I rode this trail in April 23 its a well maintained trail with plenty of areas to stop relax and buy food if you need to. Some busy rode crossings but no big deal not as remote as the Schuylkill River trail but nice mostly flat riding except for the large hill around Spring Mont I had no problem following trail fairly well marked really enjoyed it!
Not a huge fan of the share with the ATVs. or the trash littered.
