D&L Trail

D&L - Lehigh Gorge Section.

May, 2024 by wrogers1

We made our annual pilgrimage to the Lehigh Gorge section of the D&L trail. As usual we had a wonderful ride. Rode 48 miles round trip from Jim Thorpe to White Haven and back. Waterfalls were flowing and rapids were high, providing for some of the best scenery PA has to offer.

To add to the excitement, we saw a large rattlesnake crossing the trail. It had to be at least two feet long. Quite an exciting afternoon.

On a practical side, the White Haven renovations are complete with some of the best bathroom facilities I have seen on a trail anywhere.

Dinner on the porch of Molly McGuire’s in Jim Thorpe capped off the day.

So glad we decided to keep of the tradition of an annual visit.

Royersford Riverfront Trail

Nice riverfront park trail

May, 2024 by marksv

I knew about this trail in Royersford, but just discovered that it connected to the SRT. It would be even better if a restaurant or pub opened nearby. Most of the town is up the hill and is probably too steep for many. Plus, Main St has lots of traffic. Lots of walkers on some days so plan for a casual ride.

It is a nice little out and back from the SRT if you are looking to add a scenic detour.

Schuylkill River East Trail

One of the prettiest sections along the river

May, 2024 by marksv

I discovered this after I got my gravel bike last year. It is short however this is one of the few places you are right by the Schuylkill River for a significant amount of trail and can actually see the river. Most of the primary right of way for the SRT is either along the canal or you cannot see any scenery. There is a reason Schuylkill in Dutch I believe means "hidden river".

If you want to do a longer gravel ride under a treed canopy, park at the Longford Road Dog Park at the end of Longford Road and take the canal trail from there through Mont Clare. After crossing under PA Rt 29 you will come to the paved section of Lock 60. Go a short way and cross the little bridge on the right and that's where this trail officially begins. Worth the trip.

Note: the trail is often closed for a short duration after flooding events.

Chester Valley Trail

It is connectivity

May, 2024 by marksv

This is a local trail for me. I used it twice a week when working in West Goshen, Chester County. The trail is in very good shape and Chester County is to be commended for the trail. Today I use the trail to go deep into the hills of Chester County on my roadbike and get back to where I live not far from Valley Forge.

The good: It provides non-car connectivity! The surface is very good and provides the ability to get in and out of the area without cars. The canopy of trees as you get towards Montgomery County is great on hot days.

The not so good: There are a significant number of road crossings. The trail also parallels US 202 and is noisy in many spots.

I can't wait until the trail is extended further into beautiful Chester County. It is a shame it doesn't connect directly to Malvern, Paoli or Downingtown Boros.

Pennypack Trail

Overall very good trail but an exception…

May, 2024 by carlschrass_tl

This is, generally, an enjoyable ride, an unexpected green oasis in a congested urban landscape. However, at the southern end, between Torresdale Av. and State Rd., the trail is in pretty poor condition, especially in the amount of mud that has been allowed to accumulate on it. That stretch just projects an indifference on the part of the city to what was a really nice civic resource when it first opened.

Warwick to Ephrata Rail Trail

Awesome trail available to me locally. Very high quality facilities. This is the best trail my wife and I agreed we ever used.

Heritage Rail Trail County Park

very good

May, 2024 by blarnold

Just completed York to Maryland . Stopped in Railroad to spend the night at The Jackson House B and B. Great place. Ale Craft brewery nearby was excellent. Coming south through York was a bit of a challenge. We got off trail twice for a short period. Needs to be better marked

Northwest Lancaster County River Trail

Great trail

May, 2024 by dshadern01

What an amazing trail. Beautiful scenery, smooth, lots of areas to take a break, or break the trail up. Great for new riders.

Chickies Rock Overlook Trail

Short hike with a nice view

May, 2024 by megr_tl

Definitely not for biking the whole way, but nice for a short hike. Good view of the river! Without looking at the map, we took the steeper right trail at the first marked intersection that just showed it going to the overlook. That side trail is confusing without a map, as we ended up in a dead end without a view and had to backtrack a little and then the path ended up on the main trail. If you don't want to have to climb over a very short section of rocks at the end to see the western view, this path wouldn't be for you.

Big Woods Trail (PA)

Mixed reviews

May, 2024 by joelkring

We have ridden the section that connects with the Schuylkill River Trail several times and that section is fine. We went to ride the other two sections. First we stopped at the Hopewell Furnace Visitor's Center. there is lots of parking and clean rest rooms, however we could not find the trail. We asked a park ranger and he directed us to the trail. It was down a steep hill covered with large stones (for biking over) followed by an unmarked turn. Finally there was a sign and the trail was wide and paved most of the way to the pool where we turned around although a wide gravel path continued on. Next we drove to Elverson and rode that section of trail. Other than being short, part of the trail was little more than a single track.

Greater Lancaster Heritage Pathway

nice, but short

May, 2024 by joelkring

We rode this trail on a sunny spring Sunday. The trail is beautiful, the only problems are its total lack of shade and its short length. Looking forward to when this trail is completed.

Conewago Recreation Trail

Rough Ride

April, 2024 by joerebman

My first ride of the season on this trail in my hometown. Lancaster Co. Parks & Rec Dept decided to patch this trail with large non-bike-friendly gravel which makes for a rough ride where it's patched. It is especially bad in the first couple miles between Rtes. 230 and 743. The Rt. 743 (55 mph 2 lane road) crossing is dangerous, but they are working on putting up lights, for what it's worth. If you want to ride this trail, park at Trolly Line Park off of Beverly Road and just ride north to the connecting Lebanon Valley Trail. ...you'll avoid the Rt 743 crossing and the roughest part of the trail.
