Have enjoyed exploring different sections of this trail with my 10 month old puppy. We’ve walked 3 different sections so far & love how well maintained the trail is as well as the beautiful country scenery!! My favorite so far.
A really nice retreat from the city. Tons of different birds, turtles, critters! The path is mostly smooth and wide but definitely would be better on a mountain bike. Pretty quiet
The Pennypack trail is definitely two types of trails. Straight on the Montgomery County part, gravel and just a small incline on both ends. The Philadelphia part is has hills and curves as it follow the creek but paved. Never made it to the river, as we lost the signs when the trail ended at State St. Very busy trail on weekends. Will try it again during a weekday.
Only the first mile was pretty and serene....the rest was basically walking in Ikea and Home Depot parking lots....no thanks!
We started our ride at the parking lot just before Quarryville. It’s the big one on Route 372, but there are no signs to identify it. Fortunately, you can see the trail if you look closely. Also, there doesn’t appear to be any direction signs at the park to show you which direction goes where. That said, if you turn right facing the trail and head that way you’ll be rewarded with a very nice trail. It goes by many beautiful farms. There are a number of trail accessed, but I don’t remember them all on this website so hopefully it will eventually be updated. We picked up a trail brochure at one of the access points and that was helpful. Anyway, we rode to the closed bridge. We took the on road bypass to repartee the trail. It’s not marked but it’s not a long distance but requires significant climbs so I wouldn’t recommend for casual cyclists or with kids as the road was well traveled with dump trucks and tractor trailers.This will be an even better trail once the bridge is repaired. Round trip of about28 miles. Great day for riding on the trail. trail.Thereplenty of benches for
Upon the recommendation of friends, my husband and I walked this trail yesterday. It is as described, flat, well-maintained, quite wide, and with a lovely stream in several places.
However, what we did not expect was that alongside the trail were numerous meat farming operations nearly every quarter to half mile. Be prepared to walk past windowless enclosures with large fans running where the stench of animal waste is rampant. As if this wasn't sad enough, it was our enormous misfortune to pass by a hog farm as animals were being slaughtered and we could hear their cries. This was a particular nightmare for us as we are both vegetarians and animal rights activists. If we'd had any knowledge that these businesses were alongside the trail we would never have gone near it.
I understand that not all people feel the way we do and may not be bothered by any of this. However, I know there are a lot of like-minded people in this area and I could not in good conscience fail to review this trail so that others would not be subject to what we were subject to. It will be a long time, if ever, that I can get those sounds and images out of my mind.
It’s a great bike path for me and my three children it’s not bumpy it’s all level roads well kept and no trash
This is a pleasant escape from the city, largely running along the creek and through woods, but occasionally popping out and paralleling residential neighborhoods. There are also hiking paths off the trail.
I love that it's a full loop (no backtracking!). It's well-maintained and quite flat, so it would be appropriate for all abilities. The southeasternmost extension (behind brewery and post office) is not as well maintained.
The northwest end of the trail (off Harford Road) is about a block from Lake Montebello, which has bike lanes running around the lake (and, as of May 2020, the roads around the lake are temporarily closed to cars). So Herring Run + Lake Montebello forms a pleasant, no-backtracking, extended loop. Also, as of May 2020, Harford Road is under major reconstruction, so finding the entrance to the trail from the Lake Montebello end is a little tricky (there's a temporary path carved out that's quite rugged and may create accessibility issues for those with limited mobility).
My dog enjoyed it. Lots of shade. Perfect for a sunny hot day
Love this local trail. Nice gentle rolling trail with creek scenery along the way.
This trail is poorly marked. Spent more time looking for trail head and got off of trail halfway through because there was no marking.
