Nice ride along this part of the trail. Beautiful views of the Lehigh River and along the canal. Some color on the foliage is looking awesome. Road our EBikes round trip 29 miles.
Beautiful section for a long run in the morning. Very serene and peaceful
Great ride on a great trail. It was in near perfect shape with the unpaved sections nice and packed and smooth. There were hardly any sections with deep or loose TSA, trail surface aggregate. Keep in mind there is some double track as you approach Reading but my handcyclist friend said it wasn’t too bad. But be aware if you’re riding a trike if pulling a trailer with kids. Beautiful, uncrowded trail with great river views especially at the bridges.
The section from Jim Thorpe to Weissport was probably the most scenic as you were riding along side the old canal but also the roughest.From there down to Cementon was very pleasant riding even though there were a few steep grades. A lot of nice history on the trail. I was a bit dissapointed in the Cementon trail head. I guess I expected more than just a packing lot. I am looking forward to riding farther south once the gaps are closed.
Exquisite ride. Bring the whole family. Excellent packed gravel trail. We went north to south so really no uphill grades makes it sweet for the little ones. So much to see. Wildlife, history, waterfalls, trains, you really can’t beat it.
This trail has extreme damage at the west end (Slatedale) as of Sept. 2020. Coming out of Slatington it is fine for the first mile or so, but when you get to the Turnpike overhead bridge, the trail surface is large rough stone. Looks like it was never restored after the construction work was completed. Beyond that, it is Ok for about half a mile, then the packed fines have washed away in many places. some people are using the grass shoulder to get around this, but that can be very soft if there have been rains. Not worth the effort to go west of the Turnpike bridge until repaired.
First I was torn welcher her to give this trail a 3 or a 4. This is a really great trail to hook up Montoursville to the trails of Williamsport and for the most part, keep you away from car traffic. There are some scenic sections, for instance from Indian Park, along side and crossing over Loyalsock Creek. However to me it really stands out as a great commuter trail to get you into the more scene in portions along the West Branch of the Susquehanna. As it runs along some of the busier highways, again keeping you separate from traffic, it has a lot of traffic noise. Once it crosses the Creek and follows a bike lane (unprotected) along Old Montoursville Road, near the Motel 6, the bike lane is drawn on the left side so it appears bike traffic in both directions is to be on the one side. Then in front of “Club Fred”, there is a dangerous crossing of the lane to the right side...it’s right as the Canfield Lane curves up from the plant below it. My recommendation...once you pass the Litho business near Motel 6, stay on the righthand side. Once you hit Greevey Road things quiet down a bit and defined bike lanes are on eithe side of the road. This portion is where it gets scenic passing farm fields before hitting Riverfront Park. It’s an easy to follow, well marked trail. I gave it a 3 vs a 4 as it lacks what most bike/rail-trails offer with a bit more scenery and quiet. I do recommend this as part of the connecting rail trails.
Nice piece of trail, much better than leaving Morrisville. There is a lot of narrow single and double track so be aware if you’re planning on riding a trike or pulling a trailer. That would be a tough ride. Also, really need some signage around New Hope to help with getting through there. Still, it was a pretty nice scenic ride. The trail is in good shape but you can see it could be a bit muddy after rain.
One of my new Favorites. But people need to stop littering the trail with used surgical masks and hand sanitizing wipes.
Path was great cinder. Delaware all the way. Places to stop. Blessed to have this path near home.
My first time on the trail going towards Forest City. Started at Fiddle Lake Rd. Went about 20 miles. The trail is clean and so many cool things to see along the way!
We read the reviews about the northern end of the trail not being finished, so we decided to start at Luciana Park, hoping to avoid any unkept areas. Luciana Park itself, is pretty bleak but at least you could park your vehicle safely and the trail starts off to the right, east of the beautiful Viaduct structure.
The northern part of the trail is obviously used by ATVs, so you'll do better with a mountain or gravel bike as it's rocky and loose in certain sections. On the bright side, the bridge crossings are new and quite pristine, making for great photo opportunities. The grade is a very gentle uphill, which made the thought of riding back very pleasant.
The most negative aspect of the trail is that it crosses a major trafficked road at least twice. This was very intimidating for our novice rider and we ended up turning around at the 2 or 3 mile mark, just barely scratching the surface of the 40 mile route. My wife didn't like that it was so desolate - but on the flip side, those looking for solitude will enjoy this area.
To be fair, my wife and I (who are more experienced mountain bikers) should probably start at Carbondale and work our way up the trail to give it a fair chance. But for the near future, we will try other trails in the area first.
