Recent Trail Reviews

Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail

Loop Trails

February, 2020 by slipsoup

This is my third time on the D&R. There are several loop trails that can be done by crossing from NJ to PA and back. This was my first time doing a loop. It was a 19-mile ride. We rode from Old Frenchtown Field in Frenchtown, NJ. There is a fairly large parking lot adjacent to the trail. We rode to Bull's Island and crossed the pedestrian bridge over to PA. The PA side is more scenic and is called the Delaware Canal State Park. There are a couple of locks right after you cross over. Both sides of the trail flank the Delaware River for most of the ride. At the covered bridge in Uhlerstown, PA, it's a short ride to the car bridge, which takes you back to Frenchtown. There are restaurants and stores easily accessible from the trail here. I recommend either a hybrid or mountain bike, as the surface is gravel (NJ side) and a mixture of dirt and gravel (PA side).

202 Parkway Trail

Just so you know

January, 2020 by robertino

Great path, all asphalt, smooth and no roots, and pretty high speed on the down slopes. Be careful, though, and keep very alert when you have to cross the several big and busy streets. Riding toward Doylestown (going west to east) is easier than heading away from Doylestown.

202 Parkway Trail

Good for Cardio

Plenty of low grade hills so it's good for a workout.

Power Line Trail (PA)

All around great run. Watch traffic!!

January, 2020 by alvarocsanchez896

This has quickly become my go-to long run spot on a Saturday or Sunday. There’s so much to love about it, about a 10 mile run that is not crowded like the Schuykill river trail can get. I just want to caution folks: you will cross a few busy roads and you must be absolutely sure traffic has stopped for you. I have almost been hit by a car once, and it before I hit mile 1/9. That’s the only downside of this trail, car traffic.

Schuylkill Valley Heritage Trail

Please enjoy! Or Stay out then!

November, 2019 by thomascohowell

Great area! Leads to awesome area with great mining history. It may be washed out in some spots *THANKS TO PENNDOT/OR THE ORGANIZATION RESPONSIBLE ** Yeah it is not good for bicycles at all but there are other places to ride as many other miserable ppl mentioned before.. That said its a nice walk, 209 is not thay loud most of the time, leads to 309 south rail trail above north bound 309 tho is only about 4mi one way 8mi both soooo yeah. Don't be afraid to venture off trail bc there os awesome views, streams, trails etcetera. There may be the occasional atv/dirtbike/utv but 85% are very considerate and cautious and DO NOT OR NEVER use the actual sand trail, they stay to the side in grass(cld clrly sea the trackks in grass) and def slow dwn when pedestrians are visible foe safety amd to leep dust down
.. please have fun, be safe, watch for snakes, and thank yakl!!!

A Favorite

Very scenic, paved trail. If you go during the weekday not as crowded. My gps had the mileage as 6 not 4 as in trail description.

Great walk in early fall morning

Paulinskill Valley Trail

No skinny tires here.

October, 2019 by huntingr321_tl

Ive been riding this trail since the 90s. The trail is scenic in certain sections, However, Its pretty rustic & you're gonna need at least a 1.7 tire or higher.

For those of you who have the 700c tire, A 42mm or higher will get you going. After rain fall, You will encounter lots of pockets of puddles & some mud.

Lots of wildlife & on weekends you'll bump into equestrians. If you like fishing, You'll pass a few small lakes & creeks to hang out & wet your line & have lunch.

D&L Trail

Wy Hit Tuk Park (PA) to Trauger's Farm Market - 8mi

October, 2019 by strategy

This was primarily a recon mission planning for a longer ride. The trail does not disappoint, with lovely views and a lot of interesting wooden bridges (they break up trail monotony), locks, spillways and a farm market.

I initially was going to park one access north from the park. However, there is a sewage processing plant there. Need I say more? I doubled back and parked at Wy Hit Tuk.

A couple of notes about Wy Hit Tuk: You have to enter the trail by crossing a small, wooden bridge. I had forgotten about this by the time I got back and blew right by it. The landmark of I-78 crossing overhead --- which I had NOT passed under on the way in --- tipped me off that I had overshot. Also, the gates to this park are closed at sunset. Your car will be locked in, or so the sign says. So if you are heading back, set your watch. I don't know if they go by astronomical sunset or just when it gets dark. Either way, play it safe.

I'll be back to do a lot more on this trail.

Plainfield Township Recreation Trail

Heavenly

Mountain bike. So very scenic. Trees, Water, Sky, Fields, Hills, Nature. At some points you are very high up and other points low. A snapping turtle, many blue jays and a garter snake.

Wyomissing Creek Trail

Our home away from home

September, 2019 by kju92912

My husband, dog and I use this trail system at least 5 times a week. It’s longer than the map shows. If you are familiar with the area, this trail extends out to Lancaster Ave in Shillington. There are 5 places to park. Near the beginning of the trail @ the West Reading Fire House, the Reading Museum, the ponds, the field trail, and one at the Lancaster Ave end next to the soccer fields. From open fields to wooded areas, there are plenty of scenic spots around for everyone. This is my happy place!
