This is my favorite place to ride. So scenic in all seasons including a red covered bridge. Plenty of parking spots, water fountains and restrooms. Trail is for all levels. There are 2 steep hills on one side but just stick to the other side of the creek to exclude them.
This trail feels like European palace gardens and woodland . . . it has that "estate" feel to it. The drawbacks are the noise from cars and the very scary short segment on egypt road (they should put some form of barrier there, someone is going to die one day).
While the animal life in general is abundant if you come in June just after dark there are tons and tons of a rare species of synchronous firefly in the fields.
Great trail with plenty of views. Ponds woods and fields.
Not bad for an urban trail, to one side is buildings, to the other side is the river. The trail and the park it travels through are well maintained. Worth a visit if you are riding the Schuylkill River Trail through Spring City.
Beside there being no place to park, except along the narrow road, there is no clear entrance from the road onto the trail. Add to that the trail is becoming overgrown by lawns, due in large part to its short length (the 0.4 mile length is generous) and poor access. Not recommended.
For the most part this is a very scenic trail. The trail now extends briefly beyond Green Hill Road and there are 2 parking areas at Heebner Park, one off of Heebner Road and the other off of South Valley Forge Road. There were clean, well maintained rest rooms at Heebner Park. The one improvement that I would like to see is better signage in the maze of trails.
We rode this trail on a sunny morning in late June, one of 8 trails we rode that day. Unless you are also trying to ride 150 trails in one year, I don't recommend this trail. Go to the nearby Limerick Community Park and enjoy that trail instead.
Great trail until you get close to tinicum. Trail completely closed. Had to go down and up steep embankment to get onto road. It reopens after 100 yards or so. We went up pa side from Stockton and returned on Nj side to avoid it on return. Nj side much wider.
I really enjoy this trail. The terrain is great for all levels and abilities as the trail is cinder for the most part which is easy on the joints, and the majority of it is relatively flat. If you do the outer most loop there will be two somewhat steep uphills and downhills but if you have concerns just take your time and they will not pose not an issue. The outer most loop comes to almost a 10k (6.2 miles) if you go from end to end. There are several bridges along the way where you can create different loops. Most of the path is well shaded which is fantastic on a hot, sunny day. Today we started at the "Runner's House" and went to Fish Hatchery Road, where we then did a loop around the fish hatchery. We then headed back on the opposite side of the river and looped back at the bridge with the parking lot near the opposite entrance. This gave us about 5.28 miles total.
The good thing about this trail is that it's not crowded. But there's a reason it's not crowded: It just isn't anything that special about it. It's very short, and even in that short stretch, you've got to cross 2 roads with cars coming pretty fast. The unpaved stretch is a nice jaunt through the woods, but just 1 mile, and then you have to turn around. The paved part is about 2 miles, but not very scenic.
Can’t beat this view, especially for sunrise or sunset. Nice little breeze up there as well. Race Street Pier only half a mile away from the base of the Philly side entrance/exit. Also not too far from the Rocky Steps either if you want to make a run for it through Center City.
