Perkiomen Trail

Run, run, run

February, 2024 by geometry

This trail is an absolute gem. I have trained for all my marathons here, and never failed to qualify for Boston. Mostly a very gentle grade up northbound with a few short hills to test your power. Generally shaded so it's still nice on a warm summer day. Low lying sections do flood after very heavy rain so be warned.

Saucon Rail Trail

alert when passing someone

January, 2024 by jfjnrun1

i really like the Saucon rail train and have run, walked and biked.
but my experience is not many bikers announce when they are coming up on you. one proper warning would be on you right or on your left.
i have almost ben hit a few times. i think it would be good to promote users to give some kind of heads up especially when they are going fast
maybe a sign at each crossing may help

Schuylkill River Trail

It was fun. Was severely dehydrated and had to call an ambulance the end, but it was definitely worth it! Would do it again just not to Phoenixville lol

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.

Schuylkill Valley Heritage Trail

Ok for running or walking but surface too soft and rocky for riding. Rode half way and gave up and moved to road. Parallel tracks indicate it's used by 4 x 4s more than bikes. Also, there's not much to look at since it's right by the road.

Lehigh and New England Trail

Trail surface was great for a gravel ride. Not overgrown at all. Scenic, and the fact that it's 20' above the adjacent highway keeps noise and vehicle intimidation to a minimum.

Angelica Creek Trail

Enjoyable Scenery

November, 2023 by emfref_tl

I enjoyed the trail from Brentwood Trailhead up to where the residential street started…. need more signage at that location to tell people they have to walk thru the neighborhood to pick up the rest of the trail. Or that they can take that little path to the right that leads one back to the University grounds.

Big Woods Trail

Conewago Recreation Trail

Nice route and connects to the LVRT

October, 2023 by bestesbrau56_tl

I always park at the RT230 lot because it is only about 5 miles from my house. I have been on this trail more times than I can count over a lot of years and nothing has much changed. That is why I keep going back. Quiet, calm, peaceful are all proper descriptions of the ride in my book. And that it connects to the longer LVRT and also to Horseshoe trail and the MB trails at MT Gretna make it a truly unique ride for me. In fact one I will be doing that ride tomorrow. It's Sunday and you can ride through the Game Lands.

Warwick Township Highlands Trail

Railroads Never Got Close to This Trail

October, 2023 by dcwarner

If you're looking for a rail-trailesque experience, this is not that trail. While nicely built into an area of relatively new housing and commercial developments, there are very steep grades connecting the two loops, as the northern loop circles a housing development on a Kissel Hill, and the other goes around a commercial area in the valley.

Plainfield Township Recreation Trail

scenic trail

October, 2023 by kulickk

A nice ride especially in the fall At the far north end a couple of very steep short sections that are gravel The rest of the trail is on the railroad right of way so an easy ride

Rim Trail

Shady retreat

September, 2023 by weymouth.wellness
