Joseph M. McDade Recreational Trail

Pittman orchard

September, 2020 by lia_fangs

Rode with my friends Sept 19, 2020. Started at Pittman’s orchard which was the wrong choice. Single and narrow track and met with lotsa roots and rocks and then the stairs. We made it alive though after encountering 2 cubs by Dingman’s. I suggest an easy start at Hialeah for an easier and more scenic ride. Carry a bear spray too if you decide riding during cooler weather.

D&L Trail

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.

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.

D&L Trail

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.

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.

D&L Trail

great trail!

August, 2020 by ghmason1

One of my new Favorites. But people need to stop littering the trail with used surgical masks and hand sanitizing wipes.

Another gorgeous ride Stockton to Frenchtown

August, 2020 by teresanj50

Path was great cinder. Delaware all the way. Places to stop. Blessed to have this path near home.

Nor-Bath Trail

more of a suggestion than a review

August, 2020 by joelkring

We rode the Ironton Trail in the morning and the Nor-Bath in the afternoon, it would have been nice if there were a more clear path (or even roads) to connect the two trails. There looked to be an access trail under the Coplay-Northampton bridge but it was very well blocked off.

Tatamy Trail

hills

August, 2020 by zap26

I started in Easton at the Aldi on Freemansburg Ave. I will never start here again! Need to cross Freemansburg Ave and William Penn, neither are bike friendly cross walks. Signage is poor in this area. Next is a big hill I needed to walk up and come to a park. Signage poor, go left down hill. At bottom no signage, cross the road and you should seen bike path. Trail is flat and beautiful from here. Next time I will start at the spot by crayons buildings.

D&H Rail Trail

My first time on the trail going towards Forest City. Started at Fiddle Lake Rd. Went about 20 miles. The trail is clean and so many cool things to see along the way!

Nor-Bath Trail

Good Trail

August, 2020 by dcsnyder

Very nice trail, but there are surface changes. From paved to blue fine gravel to a more limestone surface that had more friction. Once out of Northampton the trail is very straight and lots of shade. Railroad grade down toward Northampton.

D&H Rail Trail

Kind of disappointing for a newbie

August, 2020 by kevinoriol

We read the reviews about the northern end of the trail not being finished, so we decided to start at Luciana Park, hoping to avoid any unkept areas. Luciana Park itself, is pretty bleak but at least you could park your vehicle safely and the trail starts off to the right, east of the beautiful Viaduct structure.

The northern part of the trail is obviously used by ATVs, so you'll do better with a mountain or gravel bike as it's rocky and loose in certain sections. On the bright side, the bridge crossings are new and quite pristine, making for great photo opportunities. The grade is a very gentle uphill, which made the thought of riding back very pleasant.

The most negative aspect of the trail is that it crosses a major trafficked road at least twice. This was very intimidating for our novice rider and we ended up turning around at the 2 or 3 mile mark, just barely scratching the surface of the 40 mile route. My wife didn't like that it was so desolate - but on the flip side, those looking for solitude will enjoy this area.

To be fair, my wife and I (who are more experienced mountain bikers) should probably start at Carbondale and work our way up the trail to give it a fair chance. But for the near future, we will try other trails in the area first.
