Enola Low Grade Trail

not worthy of a trail

August, 2022 by chris.snyder3

Going east past Quarryville is interesting to say the least. Nothing has been done to make it a trail. Weeds are knee high and the path is literally a bike tire wide. Gates are up to keep cars off the trail. You would need to hoist your bike over the gate to proceed. I tried to get to atglan to go to victory brewery but it can’t be done. Bart township hasn’t done a thing for years to live up to their responsibility to keep the trail rideable

Windsor Hills Conservation Trail

First Time Finding Trail

August, 2022 by kashanae.simpson

It was definitely more than I thought it would be in the best way. Trail had a few benches along the way, a lot of deer (tho they ran once u make eye contact¿), and a nice stream at the end which I had the pleasure of accidentally falling in¿. If u cross the stream through some semi-tall grass there’s also a bike trail. Overall, it was a nice little adventure¿¿

Swatara Rail-Trail

Fun Ride

August, 2022 by scottkris96

First mile bumpy but fine, last two narrow and all natural. The 7 miles in between are really enjoyable, gravel & decommissioned road. Can cross bridges on both ends to ride Bear Hole trail . Didn’t ride this time, but took both bridges over the Swatara creek. Trail is canopied the whole very, lots of Creek views - scenic ride.

Swatara Rail-Trail

A fun adventure

August, 2022 by caseydec

First time on this trail and rode gravel bike - had a blast with all the different trail terrain .. other reviews are spot on. This is a very unique trail! We rode in August, starting in Lickdale at Monroe huge parking area (love the grass spots), since the campground preferred people parking there instead of at their lot. Even though I read the reviews, was still surprised at the distance of the old macadam road (FYI .. it’s easy to move out and has lots of speed bumps & deer jump out). It was fun on gravel bike! As you get close to end of trail you’ll cross Swopes Vally Road .. be prepared if you go the next 1.7 miles (Northern Spur) in the summer, you may experience as we did, way overgrown waist high grass, narrow paths with fun dips before you reach the field by Hampton. Was told there is a really good diner across the street. Plan to go back and glad I had my gravel bike for fun and comfort!

Northwest Lancaster County River Trail

Best in the area, maybe the state?

August, 2022 by deckm00

The NW Lancaster County River Trail is my go-to for weekend rides. Notwithstanding the fact that it's only 12 mins from my house, it is as all the other reviews attest to a most pleasant ride. It is almost entirely paved and even part of that one very short section is being repaved as I type this.

It is wide with varied scenery, has very few hills and even those are short and low grade. The entire path is very well maintained and has many portable toilets along the way, two covered picnic areas, tons of park benches, two air pumps, mileage signs, and a rock climbing wall (real rock).

Most of the time you'll be in woods or going past fields that are farmed. In Marietta at Furnace Rd you there's a place to rent kayaks, bikes, and he sometimes has a food stand open (be sure to buy something!). After passing an excavating company and a small water treatment plant you'll see the interesting Mussellman Vesta Furnace Museum. The trail then takes you on E. Front St, where you'll pass a couple blocks of houses and then you cross back over the RR tracks and back onto the trail. If you get hungry there are tons of eateries in the town there. After that, you may notice a sort of sweet food smell in the air on certain days emanating from the Perdue Grain elevator complex I believe ( I could be wrong though).

You won't see any more civilization until you get to Bainbridge (burgers and beer at the Bainbridge Inn) and then another three miles of scenery until you get to the trailhead at the Falmouth Boat Launch. Speaking of trailheads, there are many boat launches and parking areas along the way but most people including yours truly park in the shade under the old bridge in Columbia, and it's a 13-mile ride from there to the end. When you get back there is a popular ice cream stand across from the Columbia Crossing River Trails Center, where you can also park.

My final recommendation is that if you're there on the weekend the earlier you start the less crowded it will be with groups of casual walkers. It's nothing bad but you'll be slowing down while uttering "On your left" a lot.

Following is a link to a video I made recently of one of my rides. It took place shortly after a nasty local storm had knocked down many trees along the trail but they were cleaned up almost immediately. https://youtu.be/i6a2JLxV-n8

Northwest Lancaster County River Trail

Fantastic trail!

July, 2022 by christinajsnyder

This trail has it all- paved surfaces, beautiful scenery, a good mix of shade & sun, benches, and porta potties all along the way. Early mornings are best to beat the crowds.

Cumberland Valley Rail Trail

July 4, 2022

July, 2022 by david156

Very nice trail: Started in Shippensburg where it’s paved the first mile or so, then crushed stone. Adjoining path along the NW side for horses. I like the combination historic & agriculture markers making it equally informational. Mostly shaded, but one stretch went through an alfalfa field and the scent was wonderful! A first cousin to honeysuckle! The NE portion, the newest section toward Carlisle, goes under large power lines about 2 miles, so it’s exposed and no shade. I’ll ride it again!

Northwest Lancaster County River Trail

Love this trail!

July, 2022 by jeaniepro

First time on this trail and will definitely be back. 99 percent paved surface and very well maintained. The wide path winds through woods, farmland, and local areas with amazing scenery of the Susquehanna River, historic buildings, flowers, farm fields and more. Lots of shade and benches to rest on along the way…

Mill Creek Trail (PA)

7/13/22

July, 2022 by kimberly.worley

Nice, shorter trail. I parked at Little Hill. Make sure to wear older sneakers if it has rained. The wood chips are fine to walk on….just spongy in spots. Some of the brush along the trail needs cut back a bit. You may want to apply bug spray depending on what time of year you are there. Very pretty setting….peaceful and serene with Mill Creek beside you most of the way to gate off of Conard Road.

Warwick-to-Ephrata Rail-Trail

Perfect trail for us

July, 2022 by sjashman

We rode our bikes 7 miles from Ephrata to Lititz and arrived at lunch time a break and some nourishment in town. Lititz is cute as a button for all kinds of shopping and history. After time in Lititz we got back on the trail and got to Ephrata Linear parking lot in about 40 minutes. For us, this was the perfect length. The “hills” were pretty easy, the gravel parts were not a problem at all and the weather was sunny and warm, with low humidity. We would do it again if we are in the area!

Schuylkill River Trail

Ok but only so so

July, 2022 by gary.edwards

Rode from Birdsboro down and thru Pottstown. Stay out of Pottstown, nothing good about riding in town on those streets. Berks county part of the trail is narrow but smooth cinder. Montgomery county all paved and wider. Want to ride north from Birdsboro some day but confused about unconnected sections.

Lebanon Valley Rail-Trail

Pleasant Ride

July, 2022 by bdowley

I came to scope out this and the connecting Conewago Recreational Trail for my wife and her dog trailer. Mostly shady there is a nice variety of woods, fields, and trail side back yards and regular benches. The surface is well maintained with mowed grass shoulders most of the way. For a midweek morning ride I saw a dozen walkers, another dozen bikers, two folks on horseback, along with a fawn and some smaller critters actually on the trail.
