John Heinz Refuge Trail

Airport run

February, 2018 by mikewaine

Working at the airport and looking for a fun, easy run close by to suit my limited ability !! I ran around Derby lake which was about a 5k distance on double track trail. Trail was wide with no elevation, a little muddy after the rain but easily run able. Parking was easy, facilities were clean, run was fun. I will be back next time I’m in town !!

Manayunk Bridge Trail

Cynwyd Heritage Trail

February, 2018 by hmuchnick

The Cynwyd Heritage Trail and the Schuylkill River Trail are wonderful, with one glaring and dangerous exception. There is no easy direct linkage between the two trail systems even though they are two blocks away from each other. For everyone interested in continuing their wonderful journey, they are exposed to a very complicated and unregulated T offset intersection at Umbria and Leverington Sts. Whether walking, biking or running there is no safe way to go. Is there any plan in the offing to solve this issue?

Peace Valley Park Hike & Bike Trail

Beautiful trail! Paved trail all the way around the lake!

January, 2018 by jeantpinelli

Beautiful paved trail all the way around the lake with nice visitor's center with bathroom facilities. Several parking lots around the lake, some paved some gravel. Great place to ride when you don't want to ride on the road and other mixed surface trails are sloppy. Doylestown Bike Trail network connects to this trail with only one very small road section. And, Doylestown Bike Trail connects to 202 Parkway Trail. We did a 30 mile all paved trail ride with 1600 ft of climbing. Bring your climbing legs since this is NOT a flat trail. Also, lots of foot traffic around the lake so go early or out of season. On a warm day in January was amazed at number of people on the trail so can't image how busy it gets in season! Perfect for road or gravel bikes.

Schuylkill River Trail - Valley Forge to Philadelphia

The Grand Lady Of The Schuylkill River Trails

January, 2018 by rcpat

I love this trail for many reasons. I grew up in Manayunk. I played, fished, and explored the banks of the Schuylkill River. In my older years, I got into biking again. I read that they converted a lot of railroad tracks to a trail on the Schuylkill River. I was really excited. I rode the trail in 2015 for the first time. I was like a little kid in a candy store. I could not wait to see what was around the next bend and so on.
The trail is mainly level with little ascents. The trail is mostly asphalt with some crushed gravel on the Manayunk Towpath. There is a " GAP" when you get to Manayunk in the trail. Just stay on the Main St, you will see signs to get on the Towpath. When traveling in Manayunk be careful because the area in the summer is usually crowded.
This trail is truly the Grand Lady of the Schuylkill River Trails. There is so much beauty and history to see. First, biking into Philadelphia showcases some of the most interesting sites along the Schuylkill River such as the rowers, boat house row, The Philadelphia Art Museum and the city skyline etc. Secondly,going west of Philadelphia there are a lot options you can take. Recommended, if you need a break, Manayunk has a lot of eateries. In this area, there are other trails to explore. The Manayunk Trail Bridge is a must. The view is magnificent. Some of the other trails are Lincoln Drive,Cynwyd,Pencyoyd and Wissahickon Valley Park. Finally, after leaving the towpath you will get back on the Schuylkill trail at Shawmont. There the trail really opens up. There are other trails that connect,such as CrossCounty and Perkiomen.
Enclosing, I thank all the people who made these trails available. Even though its wintertime, as I right this review, I am getting the " Itch".

Peace Valley Park Hike & Bike Trail

Trail now goes all the way around the lake

November, 2017 by mjscharpf

The trail now goes all of the way around New Galena Lake. It is 6 miles - much of it newly replaced and you no longer have to go on the road at all.

Lincoln Drive Trail

nice feeder

November, 2017 by teamvolin

This trail handily connects the Schuylkill River trail to the Wissahickon Valley Trail. This allows you to park along the river on Kelly Drive and make your way over to Wissahickon if that is your goal.

Wissahickon Valley Park Trail

beautiful ride

November, 2017 by teamvolin

My husband and I rode this trail today. We started on Kelly Drive and took the Schuylkill River Trail to the Lincoln Drive Trail and then picked up the Wissahickon Valley Park Trail and rode it to the end and back. It was beautiful and peaceful. We saw other bikers, hikers, horses and even a wedding ceremony. We will definitely be back again.

Uwchlan Trail

Scenic with easy hill

November, 2017 by joelkring

We rode the Uwchlan (pronounced you-clin) Trail from the Struble Trail UP HILL to the intersection of Pennsylvania Drive and Eagleview Blvd., where we turned left which took us to the Brandywine Hospital. From the hospital parking lot we crossed on to and turned left on Old Township Line Road to right on West Township Line Road to right on the Uwchlan Trail at Penna. Drive to right on the trail at Rice Blvd. and back down to the Struble Trail. The lower part of the trail is thru a wooded park and very scenic, the upper portion is an asphalt sidewalk beside mostly not too busy streets. I had written out a detailed turn by turn description of the trail, good thing as the trail is not well marked. Also, some of the bridges while visually pleasing, had rough transitions on and off. (I've never understood why a paved trail should not have smooth transitions at bridges.) Still overall a very enjoyable ride. When combined with the Struble and Lions trails they totaled over 13 miles out and back.

Audubon Loop Trail

Scenic treasure

October, 2017 by joelkring

We rode this trail on a weekday in the early afternoon and found it to be quite enjoyable. After crossing over the Perkiomen Creek on Egypt Road we turned onto the well marked and well maintained trail. Most of the trail is in or along the edge of a park so the scenery is pleasant. There is a steep climb less than a mile from the beginning of the ride, 120 feet of elevation gain in about 2 tenths of a mile. If you don't like steep climbs ride the loop counter-clockwise. This trail makes a great addition to a ride on either the Perkiomen Trail or the Schuylkill River Trail.

French Creek Trail

Some corrections

October, 2017 by joelkring

We rode this trail on our long wheelbase recumbents (not recommended). There is a sign at the trailhead at Hares Hill Road that states the trail is 2.1 miles long, and it is, not the 4.6 miles listed on the trail description. Also only a very short maybe 1/4 mile is wheelchair accessible. The scenery is wonderful, the trail is a mountain biking trail (similar to Blue Marsh Lake trail). A nice place to walk if you live near by, not worth the drive to ride there.

Schuylkill River Trail - Thun Trail

October 21, 2017 - Needs some TLC

October, 2017 by alipine

Was in Pottstown for an event decided to take a ride while there.

Parked at Grosstown Road. Rode into Pottstown River Front Park. Trail was paved but rough because of tree root growth. Then rode west to the Main Street crossing. The trail west was mostly gravel in good condition.

Montgomery County portion of trail needs maintenance to the pavement. Tree roots are making the ride uncomfortable and possibly hazardous. Restrooms? Are there any?

Overall a good ride.
