whitehaven to Jim Thorpe

September, 2020 by mristine1

Exquisite ride. Bring the whole family. Excellent packed gravel trail. We went north to south so really no uphill grades makes it sweet for the little ones. So much to see. Wildlife, history, waterfalls, trains, you really can’t beat it.

Hunters Crossing and Brayton Garden Trails

update from my 2017 review

September, 2020 by joelkring

While the trail is still very scenic considering how close it is to homes and businesses, the trail is in need of some TLC. There are cracks with gaps and cracks with bumps that run across the entire width of the trail making for a very bumpy ride. All of the bumps mean more time watching the trail and less time enjoying the scenery. Putting a coating of driveway sealer does nothing to smooth out the bumps.

Slate Heritage Trail

Largely washed out

September, 2020 by johnfh1

This trail has extreme damage at the west end (Slatedale) as of Sept. 2020. Coming out of Slatington it is fine for the first mile or so, but when you get to the Turnpike overhead bridge, the trail surface is large rough stone. Looks like it was never restored after the construction work was completed. Beyond that, it is Ok for about half a mile, then the packed fines have washed away in many places. some people are using the grass shoulder to get around this, but that can be very soft if there have been rains. Not worth the effort to go west of the Turnpike bridge until repaired.

Washington Crossing to Lumberville and return

August, 2020 by sandymo

Nice piece of trail, much better than leaving Morrisville. There is a lot of narrow single and double track so be aware if you’re planning on riding a trike or pulling a trailer. That would be a tough ride. Also, really need some signage around New Hope to help with getting through there. Still, it was a pretty nice scenic ride. The trail is in good shape but you can see it could be a bit muddy after rain.

Joseph M. McDade Recreational Trail

Bike Riding: Good for the novice to the intermediate

August, 2020 by kdeclerck

Nice trail bed (not for rode tires), I wouldn't ride anything thinner than 38mm on a drop bar. Short punchy climbs on either ends other wise fairly flat river side riding. Has a nice flow and is not heavily used. Access to the River via camping areas or launch areas are throughout the length of the trail. A short section of single track between Namanock Island & Raymondskill road is not recommended for bikes (both locations have trail access via parking areas). Route 209 has a decent shoulder between these 2 points so you can ride the road. A fun way to check out the river or pound out some miles without worrying about cars.

Buffalo Valley Rail Trail

Great ride, but confusing at Lewisburg end

August, 2020 by gwlrisk

We followed the app’s suggestion to park the car at Hufnagle Park in Lewisburg, but didn’t realize that shortly after its beginning adjacent to the Park, the trail has a gap in Lewisburg, requiring riders to find their way through borough streets (and across a 4-lane highway) to find where the trail picks up again several blocks away. Much better to park at the lot near 15th street.

Lebanon Valley Rail-Trail

my "go to trail", mile by mile review

August, 2020 by joelkring

The LVRT along with the Conawago trail make a great day trip ride of around 50 miles. I ride all or at least part of the trail almost every week if the weather permits. So here is my mile by mile assessment of the trail condition as of August 20, 2020. Starting at mile marker (MM) 0 the trail surface is in very good condition until almost MM 5 where some storm damage was repaired with much larger stone than the rest of the trail. The surface continues to be in mostly good condition until just after MM 6 (near where the trail to Mount Gretna turns off) from here to Butler Road the trail is in fair condition at best. There are spots with deep sand followed by rocky areas. After crossing Butler Road (near MM 7) the trail has two distinct sides, the much smoother northbound side and the quite bumpy southbound side. Riders heading north may notice oncoming riders trying to stay in the smoother lane as long as possible. This condition continues until a paved section that begins just before a bridge crossing over Mine Road. The trail is in very good condition again until just past MM 10 and before crossing PA 419 at Cornwall where tree roots under the asphalt have created many hard bumps across the trail. From PA 419 to US 422 (Benjamin Franklin Highway) the trail is mostly in very good condition. The transition from paved trail to concrete bridge over Wilhelm Avenue is a but jarring. I hope this info helps someone, this is a great trail that just needs a little more TLC.

Lebanon Valley Rail-Trail

scenic but rough ride at places

August, 2020 by joelkring

I wrote over 4 years ago that repairs made to this trail needed to be repaired as they were very rough to ride over. No additional work was ever done on those areas but the worst of the larger stones have been worn to the sides slightly by bikes over the years. The bridges near the E-Town end of the trail have very hard transitions from stone trail to concrete bridge, and they are not getting better with time. On the plus side there are now portable toilets at the Old Trolley Line Park (between mile markers 2.5 and 3). Didn't see many people wearing face masks and there are lots of people that don't seem to understand the idea of social distancing while on the trail.
