Pennypack Trail

Lorimar Park to Delaware River

November, 2022 by rwblackwell

I rode this route for the first time today. It’s a very well maintained paved trail. I really enjoyed the ride. The creek is very nice, and you can hardly tell you’re in the city. There are many more hills on this section of trail than the more northerly sections.Looking forward to the next time.

Blue Marsh Lake Multi-Use Trail

mountain biking level trails

November, 2022 by 62p9cpnkw7

Little too extreme for electric bikers who prefer the rails-to-trials. We went in both directions from the visitor center, but turned around when the trail turned rough or a little too steep. We did see mountain bikers out having a good time.

Union Canal Trail

Great Ride

November, 2022 by twirfel

Started at Stonecliffe Action Park to Blue Marsh Lake and back. Trail was groomed well and mostly flat with small inclines until closer to the lake. Great scenery with creek and marked historical areas. Covered bridge was an added bonus.

Sussex Branch Trail

Flooding at the southern end.

November, 2022 by steve.schwinn

To add to the previous review, on 11/3 the trail was completely flooded at Jefferson Lake, just north of the Waterloo Road parking area.

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.

Warwick-to-Ephrata Rail-Trail

Trash???

October, 2022 by trailkeeper

Was on the trail on Fri. 10/14/2022. spoke with one of the maintenance men, near the Dick Winters memorial. He stated that they have a broom attachment for the skid loader that they use to brush aside all of the fallen black walnut husks on the paved sections. I find the trail very well kept.

Perkiomen Trail

North end is horribly signed.

October, 2022 by

We started the trail at Green Lane. Can’t believe how poorly this trail is marked. Maps don’t help much either in this area.

Chester Valley Trail

fun outing!

October, 2022 by patticampbell4

We’ve ridden short distances on this trail toward King of Prussia ( ride to K of P Town Center and eat outside at one of the many restaurants) but last week was Our first excursion towards Exton. There are lots of road crossings, and road noise from Route 202, but it was so pretty! We’ll maintained, plenty of benches to sit and have a drink. I thought it was a great ride. Other riders were friendly and there were walkers too. I highly recommend it!

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.

Warwick-to-Ephrata Rail-Trail

Very nice trail, well maintained

October, 2022 by jtwigg52

I'm not sure what the person complaining about rails and trash on the trail is talking about. We rode this trail end-to-end and back yesterday. It's a very nice well maintained trail. The surface is a combination of paved and crushed stone. even the unpaved portions are pretty smooth. The trail travels through some scenic farmland as well as some neighborhoods. Portions of it are shaded by the tree canopy and there is also a gnome garden.
