Recent Trail Reviews

D&L Trail

Bristol Bust

July, 2020 by sandymo

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.

Switchback Railroad Trail

Switchback Trail

July, 2020 by mfasano1985

Thank you to the previous reviews. They were all very helpful. My sister and I started the trail in Jim Thorpe. We also parked on South Ave as we were unsure where else to park. The trail head is 15 feet from where Hill Ave and South Ave meet. The trail head has no marker but there is a bench and two small concrete posts. We rode 5 miles to Mauch Chunk Lake. It was a slow incline up. Very doable. You need to watch some of the sections but overall the path is well maintained and wide at some parts for two bikes.

Two notable things....
First: At the very beginning, it looks like the trail forks. Take the right upper trail. The lower one just brings you into a street in town and the mistake will cause you a good uphill bike back (yes, we made the mistake)

Second: at one point you come out of the wooded area into a sort of public works building. Go to the road. The trail head continues down the road, to the right, and across the street and at the top of Flagstaff Rd. Flagstaff Rd is about 100 yards from the public works area. There is a trail sign on the road when you come out of the public works area on the right that points this direction. If you are doing the trail starting from Summit Hill, then come off the trail at Flagstaff and head down about 100 yards. You will over a culvert on the left into the public works area. Head to the back to pick up the trail again.

Enjoy!! We will be going back!

Joseph M. McDade Recreational Trail

beautiful but very difficult near visitor center

July, 2020 by calicats

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.

trail closed near tinicum

June, 2020 by judyweinstein

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.

Endless Mountain Riding Trail

Nice trail but know what you’re in for before you go.

June, 2020 by bturner4287

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.

Trolley Trail (PA)

Beautiful and fun, especially the downhill

June, 2020 by denisdevine

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/).

Paulinskill Valley Trail

still a little rough

June, 2020 by meghan.mcquaide

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.

Lackawanna River Heritage Trail

Great for my family

June, 2020 by denisdevine

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.
