We started at the Delaware State Park site off Jefferson Ave. There’s plenty of parking. Unfortunately, there are zero trail signs. There were no signs on the trail either. TrailLink noted some missing sections in the first 9 miles. I’d suggest NOT starting at this trailhead and saving yourself a lot of headaches. The trail is not marked and goes through a lot of bad areas AND along/across a very busy street. It’s just not worth the effort. We’re gong back on a few weeks to check further up the trail, but not this section. I’m sure it’ll get better.
My husband and I are in our 60’s and usually ride flat trails. This trail is beautiful and well maintained but very steep with curves about a mile before and after visitors center. We had to walk our bikes several times while riding. Path is large roads rather than gravel which made for a rough ride. We have hybrid bikes. Definitely not for a road bike. Mountain bikes might be best. Our suggestion is to park at a parking area north of the visitors center such as Bushkill Village and travel north.
Very scenic, started at lehigh canal park in weissport, great parking.Took up past glen onoko.Thanks Brian for recommending!!
According to sign at Elm St, Depot St access is closed for construction.
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.
There’s definitely some really nice areas of this trail with lots of woods and tree cover on a hot day. However, there’s also just as much where after run off has taken its toll, there’s large loose rocks and deep muddy ruts everywhere. Bear in mind starting in Montrose you’re slowly descending for 9 miles. Coming back is more challenging. It’s truly a nice trail but you need to be very aware of sudden changes in the trail. Nice ride, but probably won’t be doing it twice.
My son (age 8) & I really enjoyed this trail on our bikes, leaving from a home in Clarks Green and accessing the Clarks Summit trailhead off Old State Road after a short bike along the Old Lackawanna Trail. (Crossing 6/11 may have been the trickiest part of the whole expedition!) The trip northwest towards Dalton was almost all downhill, and a delight. I got confused by the trail where it hits Arch Ave. near the Abington Little League baseball fields, as it's not clearly marked and the road seems like the right way to go, and we had to turn left on the busier Ackerly Road to return to the trail. But anyway, the downhill part of the trip was a breeze. When the boardwalk met S. Turnpike Rd., we turned around after a brief water break, and then it was all uphill from there. My son had to walk a few times. He loved zooming down the steep hill at the tricky spot that saw us lose the trail coming the other direction, by the ball fields, and we walked up the steep hill of the footpath. But we made it, and topped off our trip with a pair of delicious cones at Manning's scoop shop in the shopping plaza at State St. & Grove St. A lot of fun, and a great trail, thanks to the Countryside Conservancy (https://countrysideconservancy.org/about/).
The trail is moderately level. Some ups and downs but relatively easy. Many places are only wide enough for one bike. Some super muddy spots. Overall the trail could use some grooming and TLC.
My sons (ages 8 and 7) & I really enjoyed biking this trail. We parked and started at the Olive Street trailhead and went south to Elm Street, then back up to Poplar Street, where we had a great riverside snack at Sweeney's Beach, and then rode back to our car. Highly recommend. My youngest had to walk a few times uphill, but otherwise, great riding for our skill levels. Highly recommend. And thanks to the many, many people who've obviously worked hard to bring this amenity to the public.
I have ridden here twice, once in autumn, and this time in late April 2020.
Both times I parked on Haven Road. The first time I mistook where the "official" trail is and rode the eastern side. It is a trail with nice views of the marshy wild life preserve, but was too muddy for me. This time I was on the western side of the Bashakill and it is a fine trail for sturdier bikes, not racing tires. There are some very lovely views and trail floor that varies from old pavement, to grass, to hard and soft dirt, including some mud. There are 2 spots where old bridges are missing so you have to take a very short side detour. It is hard to determine where the trail actually ends, as it seems to just fade into thick forest brush, unless I missed something. I walked the bike about 50 yards to a dirt road, went to the dead end on the water for few minutes, and then road back to the parking area on Route 209, which was quite nice too. There are some hilly trails near the Haven Road parking area if you are an experienced mountain biker. It is worth a visit.
Nice trail, well maintained.
