Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail

A Long and Enjoyable Trail

September, 2021 by augustine_salazar

I only did 40 miles of the trail staring in New Brunswick; did enjoy it. I was impressed by the difference in temperature provided by the tree canopy during a good portion of the trail. My only concern, especially when riding with children, is that little attention has been given to traffic intersections. Too many drivers are careless and could prove hazardous. An enjoyable trail otherwise.

Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail

Lots of Storm Damage

September, 2021 by wbdonohue84

I was really pumped to go for a long run on this trail, heard nothing but amazing things. But it seems TS Henry and Ida took its toll on this path. LOTS of washouts, bridges closed and areas completely washed away. I’m sure it will get fixed in time but just be cautious for the time being

Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail

not impressed

September, 2021 by jiggs1960

We rode this portion of the D&R trail two years ago, and thought we'd do it again yesterday. Started at the trail head along Carnegie Road at Lawrenceville, and rode for about 2 1/2 miles going north-east (we were plaining on doing 20 out and 20 back) . That was enough to decide to pack it up, and go to another trail closer to home. I guess, because of the heavy rains we had in August/September, to repair wash-outs, they just threw very fine gravel down, not packed, and in many places about 2" thick. It made for miserable riding on our cyclocross bikes with 32mm tires. Whoever is in charge of the trail maintenance needs to educate themselves of proper materials and techniques to be used for the trail repairs. Maybe it got better as you got further away from Lawrenceville, but we weren't going to chance it. A real shame, it used to be a great trail.

Unami Creek Trail

Nice quiet trail!

September, 2021 by aunyjes

We enjoyed this quiet mostly shaded trail! Took our 2 dogs. I like that it’s paved, pretty scenery, not real busy.

Jack A. Markell Trail

A nice ride around the city

September, 2021 by m.p.schneider.lc

THe trail is well maintained, well-marked and relatively scenic. It almost gets five stars but it has a lot of awkward turns and blind corners in the top half of the trail and has some odd things where it appears to have access but there's a big fence without a pedestrian opening for no apparent reason.

202 Parkway Trail

Although the trail is noisy because of its proximity to Rt. 202, it is beautifully maintained, asphalt all the way and offers pleasant views. Very hilly headed south but fun downhills on the northward journey.

John Heinz Refuge Trail

wonderful resource

September, 2021 by jules251.business

Great trail system with lots of wonderful habitat especially for birds. Tried the west entrance off 420 and there is lots of construction going on. It could really use better signage at that end. Once I figured out where I was supposed to be it was a nice flat gravel route.

Little Lehigh Parkway Path

Too Loud

September, 2021 by docjedi

Scenery wise, the park is great and the grounds crew keeps it beautiful. The down fall is the sound. There is a shooting range on the park, so its a terrible place to walk a rescue dog. In other locations, its so close to the highway that all you here is traffic.

Jordan Creek Greenway Trail (PA)

Beautiful and Awesome

September, 2021 by docjedi

The flow of the trail is perfect as it follows the creek.

Chester Valley Trail

Nice Labor Day Ride

September, 2021 by sgraham127

Fun outing overall. Smooth asphalt trail and well maintained with lots of shaded areas. Agree some parts were not scenic and were near busy roadways but crossings were safe and clearly marked. Lots of bikers, walkers and families on this trail but majority were friendly as you passed. Even saw a group walking with a large American flag…a great bonus to our Labor Day ride!

Cross County Trail (PA)

Good concept but not here yet

September, 2021 by kws24

Only the westernmost 3 miles of this trail exist. The surface is good, but there are one or two nerve-wracking crossings. The summary here states, "You can also park in the lots owned by the big box stores found along the route." but I'm skeptical that parking in the strip-mall lot off chemical road is legal when you aren't on mall property. When completed this could potentially be a very useful trail, but is not there yet.

Schuylkill River Trail

Good trail with some significant irritations

September, 2021 by kws24

Overall a good trail but there are some irritations. The missing section between Lincoln Drive in Wissahickon and Lock Street in Manayunk is very annoying. You have a choice of dealing with the usually heavy traffic on Main street, or bumps, driveways, pedestrians and dogs on the sidewalk. This makes accessing Philadelphia from the north using this trail unsuitable, (or at least very intimidating) for novice/casual riders. Immediately north of that section there is a section on planks that will rattle your teeth loose, then there is a gravel/dirt section that tends to be muddy. This renders the trail undesirable as a commuting route. North of Shawmont Ave. it's good for a long stretch out to Oaks. Parking is not reliably available at Spring Mill or Conshohocken, which also makes the trail much less useful for commuting into Philly, especially on weekdays. The trail tends to get very heavy use, (increasingly so as one approaches Philly) and a considerable fraction of riders go faster than is appropriate.
