I moved to Parkwood as a child in 1964 and these trails have really changed for the best! I still miss the old corn fields of old Byberry hospital but the trail brings back so many wonderful memories it's a blessing to reconnect!

Warwick-to-Ephrata Rail-Trail

very nice trail

December, 2021 by lowtoyonair

I hopped on this trail somewhere around the mid point and headed towards Lititz. Very nice maintained. I even enjoyed a few alternative routes around a park and a school. I was hoping it would go farther towards the pleasant downtown area in Lititz but feel that the streets are safe enough to travel to all of the shopping attractions in Lititz. I the returned back to the trail and followed it back all the way to Ephrata and was pleasantly surprised to see that that end of the trail leads to downtown. I even caught a glimpse of a small BMX style practice track that I was tempted to try. I also want to mention that there are bike rental options at either end of the trail that makes for a great option for non-owners.

Columbia Trail

Rough Ride last 7 miles to Long Valley

November, 2021 by cathyandjoe

While the views are awesome, be advised that the 2nd half of the trail from Califon to Long Valley is better suited to mountain bikes. We found most of this section to be uncomfortable for our hybrids with concern for our tires. From High Bridge to the mid point (the first 7.5 miles) was good riding and a smoother trail. This section also has the best views of river and woods. Recently made the round trip (30 miles) on November 11, 2021 and would rate only 3 stars due to the mentioned rough 2nd half ride of the trail. Best breakfast/lunch options were in High Bridge. Nice coffee shop on the northern end of trail (the Coffee Potter), but not much else close to the trail.

Schuylkill River Trail

Stellar trail ride in the Fall

November, 2021 by richardsj1

Rode from Valley Forge (Pawlings Rd Access) to end of the trail in Philadelphia and back for around 49 miles or so. It was a weekday morning and the conditions were ideal. The only challenges heading into Philadelphia are figuring out where to go around Manayunk (canal trail or through town) and then connecting to the paved trail at or past Lincoln (?). Easier coming back. Well worth the ride from York.

Greater Hazleton Rails to Trails

Nice Trail, Well Maintained

November, 2021 by gennatesw

I went (mountain) biking in the trail, which I found to be very smooth and enjoyable, with not too many hills along the ride. I was surprised with how well maintained and smooth the path was, I expected to find some washed out spots and/or downed tree limbs, but seriously didn’t run into a single bump along the path. Saw a few people early on, but then had the trail mostly to myself, even on a Saturday. Great job by the service that upkeeps the path! Will definitely be coming back.

Great Valley Trail

nice wide open flat trail

November, 2021 by april.wisniewski

If you like wide open and flat trails then this is for you. Was nice to bring my dog with me; Appalachian trail is too narrow and rocky for my dog on a leash. Overall it was pretty dry, very quiet, and walking next to the Paulinskill was relaxing.

Schuylkill River Trail

love it!

October, 2021 by rosejacquelynn

This is the first huge trail I've been able to find. It's great! I love how easy it is to walk. I usually start where the parking lot is on pawlings or on station and I walk towards oaks near mill road. I'm just starting out walking and it's great for a beginner.

D&L Trail

Great ride north from Glen Onoko, with a few caveats...

October, 2021 by jsshoemaker826

Oct 11, 2021. Parked in Glen Onoko parking lot. Lots of parking, but we could not find any toilets anywhere. Seems like with all that parking for visitors, the town or park should at least provide some porta-potties. We rode north for about 15 miles. Almost all of the trail was in great condition. There were a few spots near Glen Onoko with very loose fill that required walking (32 mm wide tires). Very nice scenery, and not crowded on a holiday Monday. Nice facilities at the Rockport trailhead. Overall a great ride!

Ironton Rail-Trail

Beautiful trail to skate on--just one bad crossing...

October, 2021 by ajazzfan

I did a portion of this trail, Whitehall trail head to East Church Street. It is mostly flat until you hit the loop section, that was a short hill, but a little steep. The only problem I had was crossing 2nd Street--extremely rough pavement, it's like they milled the road and never finished it! Except for that crossing the rest of the trail was fine. Plenty of parking at the trailhead, but there are more parking areas further up the trail as well. I didn't see any public restrooms, there are a few portable toilets along the trail. Plenty of benches and other seating areas along the trail, but no water fountains--make sure you bring enough water! There is a shooting range next to the trail that was Very active while I was skating, some people may be bothered by this, I wasn't. I went in the morning and there were other people on the trail but it was not crowded.

Big Woods Trail

Scenic trail coming together

October, 2021 by jmcginnis12@gmail.com

Situated in the rolling hills of southeast Berks and northwest Chester County, the Big Woods Trail will link several parks and historic sites when completed.
A work in progress, the trail will connect the Schuylkill River Trail to the borough of Elverson when completed. As of 2021, three, disconnected segments of the multi-use trail are finished.
The northern segment begins at the Schuylkill River Trail in the village of Monocacy and winds its way up a grassy hillside to Crusher Road. This section is noted for its rolling pasturelands and panoramic views of the valley below.
The middle segment starts a few miles to the south at the Hopewell Iron Furnace National Historic Site off Park Road. The centerpiece of this site is a restored 19th century-era furnace, which was fed by charcoal produced from the trees of the surrounding Big Woods and used to smelt iron from nearby mines. Trail users should check out the grounds before heading southwest on the greenway, which passes through the woods and connects the Historical Site to the adjacent French Creek State Park. This section also connects to the Horseshoe Trail and the State Park's own network of footpaths and follows the south shoreline of Hopewell Lake, ending at the park's main parking lot and recreation complex.
A shorter, southern segment of the trail extends for about a quarter mile along an abandoned rail line in the borough of Elverson. This segment begins at Park Ave. and extends to Route 23 (Main Street), and is noted for several restored historical buildings.
When the trail is eventually completed, it will link the Schuylkill River and Horseshoe trails as well as several other historical sites and open space areas. It may also be extended further south into Chester County via the old Reading to Coatesville rail line.

Susquehanna Warrior Trail

this trail needs maintained.

September, 2021 by lowtoyonair

I rode the trail today near the nuclear power plant and it was poorly maintained. The gravel was very loose, a lot of fallen tree debris and quite muddy. I traveled on the trail north about 2.5 miles and gave up. I traveled back along US11 and then rode around the trails at the river flatlands which were a bit better. I guess I am spoiled with my local trails (York Heritage and NW Lancaster Co Rail Trail)
