My wife and I rode the trail this morning. Excellent ride for e-bikes. Most of trail is asphalt. A small section is dirt/small gravel but very easy to ride on. Beautiful ride through the country side. Be sure not to miss the Gnome Village!
As previous reviewers have noted the last 5.5 miles at the eastern end of the trail ending in the charming little town of Atglen is not passable by bicycle and includes numerous gates and concrete blockades designed to keep people off what is nothing more than an electrical power line right of way. Might be a future rail trail but at present it should not even be included on the map. Better to head west toward Quarryville. Fortunately, the country roads through the beautiful Amish countryside make for a nice cycling outing.
Great trail through the woods but the constant hills make it pretty challenging.
Nice loop around local park. Very busy with walkers every time I've ever been there.
A great trail to use if you want get to Skippack from the Perkiomen Trail. All other reviews were spot on. Quiet narrow trail with some blind turns and rolling hills. Trail passes through power lines, a horse farm, and a large park. Skippack is a great place to take a break at any of the various restaurants and shops.
Great trail by bike. Very shady. Not too hilly
Lots of shade on this trail. Downed trees noted in an earlier review have been cleared. Could really use some fine gravel over much of the trail. Watch the crossing at Route 743. Cars are flying. Steep grades on either side of the former tressel.
Trail is very hilly and crushed stone is not good for hybrids. Shame because the trail looked like it was very picturesque if we could go further.
I cannot claim to be a frequent trail user. I have used the Struble Trail near my home mostly, and have a little experience with several other rail trail systems in SE PA.
Today being especially beautiful and the weather cool I chose to ride on the Chester Valley Trail. It was understandably busy.
This is a well built trail that travels down Pennsylvania's Great Valley. Though the trail is incomplete (the goal is to tie in with the Schuylkill River Trail) it runs through established neighborhoods as well as farm land along an old right of way that is more greenway than suburban. It is a favorite destination for walkers, runners, families, and bikers since it is convenient to a large population.
I found it unsafe since many of the bike riders do not observe the 15mph speed limit that is clearly marked on the pavement and is appropriate for a multi-use trail. It is a wide trail and safe for two way 'traffic'. However, when bikers traveling over 20mph on the trail choose to pass in the middle of the trail, where there is east and west bound congestion, the risk they create for collision is a serious threat to everyone. I found the use of audible signals or vocal warnings by those passing is also infrequent.
I ride on the trail too, but I don't understand why bikers choose to break the speed limit rule on a trail that is so frequently used by runners and walkers - especially when it is crowded. If the CVT was designed for such high speeds there would be mandatory lanes for bike riders.
I did my first ride on this trail from Lebanon to Mt Gretna with a side trip to The Jigger Shop for an ice cream. 21 miles. My longest ride to date and it was so easy!
Great ride. Trail was in great shape. Did 8 mile stretch from Tannery to State Park.
I recently rode from New Freedom To York on a nice Sunday in July. The trail was fairly busy but it is wide, in great condition and mostly shaded allowing a pleasant ride. An active rail road runs next to almost the entire Heritage Rail Trail that carries a sightseeing locomotive which was exciting to see during my ride!
There are many places to stop to eat along the many trailheads as well as plenty of benches along the trail to take a break. There are also many art installations at each trailhead which provide many photo opportunities. I stopped in York as I could not find the extension and did not feel comfortable in the traffic of York.
