Started in Green Lane Park main parking area, went the wrong way and came to the end of the trail. Turned around and headed south. Beginning of the trail is a bit confusing, so I would recommend starting at Snyder Road and Deep Creek Road. Trail from there is great. Mostly well packed gravel and some paved sections. Ride is along the creek and is very scenic and mostly flat. I say mostly because there is a steep hill in Spring Mount by a small ski area. The hill is tough riding from North to South, 12 percent grade going up. We turned around in Schwenksville after ice frexx as m at a small restaurant on the trss as I’m. I really enjoyed this trail s as nd will return to ride further, we road on a 90 degree day and and found it too difficult to go further.
The John Heinz at Tinicum is excellent at the northern end, around the lake and back. Beautiful with abundant wildlife, especially birds. I haven’t seen the middle section because I can’t walk that far. But, parking at the southern end and walking northeast was horrible and I’ll never do that again. It is too close to the road and the noise from interstate 95 was so loud we couldn’t converse. We tried to come back a different way, but because of the rains and lack of bridges, or even boards, we were in water up to our knees.
Great setting on a well maintained trail. Scenery included the canal, numerous bridges, birds and boats. GRAIN has a bar/restaurant right next to the water about halfway and the trail is bookended by Schaeffer’s Canal house to the west and Crabby Dicks to the east. Mostly flat with a few short elevation changes, including the switchbacks at the marina. Also has numerous lots for entry along the way.
Trail is smooth as it gets. Trail seamlessly connects to Wilmington River Walk. No water or restroom on trail. Suggest parking at trailhead just east of 1101 Delaware St, New Castle and ride both ways.
At the south end a few blocks of street riding south on South Street will connect to the Battery Park Trail.
Nice ride, smooth pavement and safe area, just a few road crossings so goes fast. Parking areas have restrooms but no water. At west end in Maryland Schaefers has good sea food and beer.
The gravel on the upper rail line trail is small so it’s easy on training wheels!
Just rode the trail today. The new segment up to PA 232 was open!!! Another mile and a half added to a perfect trail. I’m so excited to see it completed all the way to Newtown.
One of my best trails this far!!!
I love this! It’s not a very nature intense trail, but you basically go up a big hill and at the top is a flat loop around the reservoir. It’s super pretty and was great with the stroller!
Good relaxing trail, just started as a beginner and found this trail. Very easy but at the same time good exercise. Well maintained definitely recommend my go to home track for weekly exercise.
Great easy ride to from city to city. Bring water and sunscreen along with light snacks. There are restroom facilities along the trail and benches for rest.
Quiet trail awaiting completion to connect with Valley Forge. Bathrooms and ball fields in the middle with plenty of parking. Some hills. A couple of tight switchbacks requiring a slow pace and some may need to dismount.
