Pennsy Trail (PA)

The south side of this trail is not maintained.

September, 2017 by gallihue1

The southside of this trail is not maintained. In fact it seems like alot of it has been sprayed with herbicide or left to grow over. It is terrible how Haverford Township does not value
it's trail resources.

Enola Low Grade Trail

Quarryville to Atglen, take two.

September, 2017 by joelkring

We tried to ride this section of trail last year but got turned around when we came upon deep mud. This year we had a plan. I used the satellite view on the TrailLink map to determine which roads we could use to access the trail. We started at Quarryville and rode east, the trail is in great condition, smooth fine stone from edge to edge. Shortly after crossing under State Street (PA 372) the trail becomes 2 slightly worn single tracks over very large (for a rail trail) stones. Between Mt. Pleasant Rd. and Lamparter Rd. we came upon deep soft sandy soil. A truck had left 9 inch deep tire ruts in the trail. Even with 1 1/2 inch tires the sand was too soft to ride through. We returned to our car and drove to Lamparter Rd. to continue our adventure. From there we rode west about half a mile to the sand pit then headed east toward Atglen. The trail surface varied greatly, sometimes very smooth more often rough. Most of the road crossings were steep descents to the road then steep climbs back to the railroad grade. One crossing, I think it was Orchard Buck Rd. was a steep rough climb, lifting bikes over guard rails on both sides of the road then a steep rocky descent back to the trail. There was a short section near the end of the trail where the weeds were waist high, but we kept going. So we can now say that we did the entire Enola Low Grade trail. We give the trail a low grade, but it was an adventure.

Industrial Track Greenway Trail

September 10, 2017

September, 2017 by snowland

Biked from New Castle to the Christiana River today. This portion of the trail is all paved except for the tunnel under 295 (stone), and a 50 - 100 foot section north of the tunnel (dirt). Total time walking the bike was around 5 minutes - tunnel is pretty dark. All the construction gates were open. Hopefully the small amount of paving at the tunnel will be done soon. The bridge over the Christiana is under construction.

If you park your car at the Battery Park tennis courts and bike this section of the Industrial Track and then cross Battery Park on the grass and bike the trail from Battery Park south along the Delaware, it's about 6.5 miles total, or 13 miles out and back on both. You can extend the miles by connecting the Battery Park trail with Route 9. Only saw a couple of other bikers.

Note: there is a confusing sign that says "End of Trail" as you approach 295 from the New Castle side - continue on the quiet road, then you will see the first tunnel and the trail restarts. My guess is that the sign is marking the transition from trail to the short stretch of barely used road.

Great Ride

Lots of hills and beautiful landscape. Would highly recommend!

Monroe Township Bikeway

My Come To Trail for Shade, Coolness, And Beauty, Especially, Summertime

August, 2017 by rcpat

I have been coming to this trail for about four years. I really like it for its beauty, shade, and well maintained. I usually bike 20 to 25 miles 3 times a week. I bike half of my workout in Washington Township mainly because they have some hills. I need hills in my workout because when i go over to Pennsylvania they have hills. By the time i get done with that segment i can`t wait to get to the trail. The trail rejuvenates me because the temperature is much cooler and the lush forest, especially, between Fries Mill Rd. and Delsea DR. (rte 47).
Finally, when I am all done, I have a spot I go to relax. If I am lucky I watch the skydivers jumping from the plane. This really makes my day.

Ben Cardin C&D Canal Recreational Trail

Historic canal, good workout trail, nice breeze off the water

August, 2017 by khrysinwythe

Didn't realize that the C&D and the Castle trail combined to make the 17 mile trail. The sign near Schaefer's Canal House restaurant gave me the impression that all of it was the C&D. Even the map on the trail link site says the C&D is the 12 mile from Delaware City to Cheapeake City. This was my 152 ride (trail) in 47 states.
Wife and I had some great crab bisque and Maryland chowder at Kath's Crab House at the end of the trail in Delaware City.

Michael Castle Trail

Great trail - prepare for switchbacks

August, 2017 by bweids5

We parked in Chesapeake City (under bridge past Schaefer's Canal House) and rode to the trail head. We rode about 6.5 mile East turning around at the Summit North Marina. The entire ride was on a paved surface and very smooth. There was a section that was gravel and flat that hugged the canal, but we stayed on the paved surface. There are a couple of switchbacks on the trail going up or down hill (depending on direction). May need or want to walk part of them and these climbs are the reason for 4 rather than 5 stars). Along our route, there are two good restaurants to get some food or a drink of your choice. Schaefer's and Grain at the Summit North Marina. There was some shaded path along with some in the sun. All in all, an enjoyable ride and we are working our way up to the full trail (Chesapeake City to Delaware City).

Downs Park Trail

Poor biking trail, great for walkers and joggers

August, 2017 by grillingitup

I'm rating this for biking. If you're under the age of 70, and if you ride faster than 5 miles per hour, this trail is not for you. I ride a street (racing) bike, and this trail was a very bad experience for me. The "trail" is extremely bumpy throughout because of tree roots. It winds through the woods, which makes for beautiful scenery, but because of the twisty nature, it also has poor visibility. I turned a curve and almost ran into a woman and her child because they were stopped and completely blocking the trail. There are sections where you can see more than 20 feet, but overall, I would not ride this again. It was rough on my bike and on my rear.

John Heinz Refuge Trail

Walk or Bike

August, 2017 by memeticeffects

I took my bike (with mountain bike tires on it) and rode the loop. The path is wide and pretty smooth so you don't really need the mountain bike tires. Beautiful day, beautiful place, not overrun with too many people to make it difficult to ride without constantly stopping (wide paths help). The earlier you go, the more birds and wildlife you'll see. It's about a 45 minute ride up I-95 and worth it. Fish, boat, walk or ride, you'll enjoy your time here.

Chester Valley Trail

Tree lined trail - shady and flat!

August, 2017 by adriannebelcher

Went for a bike ride on this trail with my boys and it was fantastic! Not too difficult and the trail is shady so for an August day it wasn't too hot. Lots of benches to stop and take a break. There are several street crossings but they have pedestrian blinking lights and the crossings are well marked so I felt safe crossing with my boys. Drivers always slowed down for us to cross. Overall a great trail! Definitely recommend for a family bike ride.

East Branch Brandywine Trail

Great Trail!

August, 2017 by adriannebelcher

Took my boys on this trial for a bike ride. The paved part is nice and they had an awesome time on the alternate trail along the river. I definitely recommend going on the alternate trail. Road noise was quieter too.

Michael Castle Trail

July 2017

July, 2017 by scholastica

While pavement is certainly nice, the views are "okay" from the South Lums Pond entrance to DE City. You've got unchanging canal on one side, and nothing to look at on the other, just a berm of brush - with some exceptions. There is no shade at all, so be forewarned. Did enjoy seeing the various boats, altho was disappointed no ships went thru while I rode. At the Delaware City end, you do encounter nice scenery, with tidal marsh (if that's what you call it), an African-American cemetery, and a park. It was a pleasant jaunt.
