We’ve been hiking this trail for awhile. We walk the whole way to longs park and could even go the whole way to park city. There’s so many trails to hike with different terrains and views with plenty of wildlife.
Had a little trouble finding a good spot to park and the trailhead in the shopping center off 309 so we decided to start at Blue Heron park. Once we got there it was very obvious where to go. My 5 y/o and I road the meandering trail with little incline through housing developments but it was still nicely wooded and spotted with lovely little ponds. Overall, we felt the trails were well maintained for us. We liked riding over the bridge and on the boardwalk. You do have to cross a busy road at one point but I felt we were visible enough to safely cross. It took us about an hour, there and back. We both had a great time. Bonus, there is a great playground my son was able to play on afterwards. Highly recommend this fun little ride for anyone with kids.
I use a section of this trail when I travel to Lansdale by bike, it is a wonderful trail that offers a safe route away from cars for part of my ride. I am glad that Lansdale and Hatfield townships are working toward providing people with safe, protected trails for cycling, walking, running, and scooting. Please keep this up and bring more things like this to our Montgomery County communities!
Great 29 mile out and back from Route 372 trailhead. Introduced a friend to the trail. Sorely need a big sign for the trailhead and an actual address. Still, it was a great day to be out, nice and sunny. Nice frozen trail on the way out and a little softer on the return. There were a few rock climbers along the river. I thought both bridges were being repaired but the first one didn’t appear to started yet. The trail has so much potential. I can’t wait for the bridges to be repaired. Highly recommend the trail even if it’s a little bumpy high now.
Started at the North Gulf road. Nice trail. Little loud since your close to the interstate. My recommendation would be to drive further down (3-4 miles in the trail, around Penn medicine) and it’s getting quieter. Overall nice trail to bike and be out of the house.
Great trail parking a little hard if you come at a busy time
Flat and paved is always a welcome reprieve from crushed stone or otherwise. The drawbacks (frequent road crossings and occasional visual proximity to rte 202) are easily outweighed by the quality of the trail. Signage makes the trail easy to follow, and the quarter mile markers are an improvement over the usual half mile markers. The crossings are well designed to keep cyclists and pedestrians safe.
Stretching nearly 7 miles from Bachman Street in Hellertown south through the picturesque Saucon Valley to East Station Ave. in Coopersburg, the Saucon Rail Trail could easily be considered the Jewel of Eastern PA when it comes to multi-use greenways.
The trail is built along the route of the former North Penn RR, which once hauled iron, steel and coal from the mines of Northeastern PA and mills of the Allentown-Bethlehem metropolitan area south to Philadelphia. The line also doubled as a SEPTA commuter line until abandonment in 1984. The RR itself may be long gone, but numerous vestiges, including old telegraph poles and signal towers, one of which has been refurbished, rock cuts and several bridges that have since been repurposed for trail use, attest to the line's original purpose. The fact that the crushed stone trail is wide enough to easily accommodate two or more cyclists or hikers passing each other simultaneously is made possible by the fact that the line was double tracked for most of its length.
Other highlights along the trail include historical stone buildings and homes that are visible along the northern segment of the trail in Hellertown and Lower Saucon Township, palatial mansions of more recent vintage in Upper Saucon Township, quaint barns north of Coopersburg and the Hellertown wetlands.
The trail also passes several parks on its route, including Water Street and Grist Mill parks in Hellertown, Upper Saucon Township Community Park, located just west of the campus of DeSales University and South Lehigh Living Memorial Park in Coopersburg. In addition to providing opportunities for the kids to play or families to eat picnic lunches, these parks also provide convenient points to access the trail and feature their own, internal trail networks.
In addition to being a great, stand alone trail, the Saucon Rail Trail is also envisioned to become a vital link in an intercity greenway that will eventually connect the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton-Phillipsburg conurbation with the Philly metropolitan area. The Upper Bucks Rail Trail now extends from the southern terminus in Coopersburg south to Veterans Park outside Quakertown, and there are also plans to extend the trail north to Saucon Park in Bethlehem, where it will link to the South Bethlehem Greenway.
Macadamed easy flat trail right along the Conestoga Creek. Approximately one mile away from traffic.
run here daily, short but peaceful trail
it's a good trail
I live super close to Battery Park and can actually access this park and it's subsequent trail through the Jack A. Markell trail, which is also very nice(10/10 recommend). But this trail offers great views, especially during sunrise and sunset. Never too crowded, lined with some trees along with labels on a few of them for their biological information to keep things interesting, and close enough to some shores of sand to collect shells, rocks, etc!
