Pomeroy and Newark Rail Trail

Pomeroy Newark

July, 2021 by jetr22

Great trail by bike. Very shady. Not too hilly

Chester Valley Trail

Beautiful, but is it safe

July, 2021 by shryock111

I cannot claim to be a frequent trail user. I have used the Struble Trail near my home mostly, and have a little experience with several other rail trail systems in SE PA.

Today being especially beautiful and the weather cool I chose to ride on the Chester Valley Trail. It was understandably busy.

This is a well built trail that travels down Pennsylvania's Great Valley. Though the trail is incomplete (the goal is to tie in with the Schuylkill River Trail) it runs through established neighborhoods as well as farm land along an old right of way that is more greenway than suburban. It is a favorite destination for walkers, runners, families, and bikers since it is convenient to a large population.

I found it unsafe since many of the bike riders do not observe the 15mph speed limit that is clearly marked on the pavement and is appropriate for a multi-use trail. It is a wide trail and safe for two way 'traffic'. However, when bikers traveling over 20mph on the trail choose to pass in the middle of the trail, where there is east and west bound congestion, the risk they create for collision is a serious threat to everyone. I found the use of audible signals or vocal warnings by those passing is also infrequent.

I ride on the trail too, but I don't understand why bikers choose to break the speed limit rule on a trail that is so frequently used by runners and walkers - especially when it is crowded. If the CVT was designed for such high speeds there would be mandatory lanes for bike riders.

July 18th 2021 Fun ride with lots of sights and history to take in. Rode with my Nephew, it is his local trail. Parts of our ride were awesome smooth wide trail and other parts were very rough narrow and bumpy. I will ride more of this trail next time that I am in the area.

beautiful trail

July, 2021 by millercamema1_tl

One of the nicest trails we’ve ridden along the C&D canal. Start at Shaffers Canal House Restaurant and ride on blacktop trail. Beautiful scenery! Ice cream shop along trail, or restaurant half way or if you make it to Delaware City, be sure to eat at Crabby Ducks on water!!!

Cross County Trail (PA)

Good Trail, but needs Signage Improvements

July, 2021 by s8kkrpdkbc

I've been on this trail three times, and from my experience there, it was a solid trail but needs improvements. It has a great amount of potential, and could soon live up to its name.

The trail is serene on both sides of the Ikea/Home Depot Business area, it was an enjoyable experience for sure, but there were flaws that should be fixed.

Two of the crossings, which would be the main Ikea entrance and Gallagher Rd, are dangerous to cross and have poor signage. I highly recommend improving the signage to signal drivers of trail users.

Because of the trail being very serene on both sides and having a pleasant experience there, I would have rated this 5 stars, but it loses a star due to poor signage and dangerous crossings.

Not much to see. Narrow path.that runs thru Runnemede. Parking lot at end of trail has signs regarding towing unless restaurant patron. No shade, walk is completely in the sun.

Michael Castle Trail

Chesapeake City MD to Delaware City DE

July, 2021 by boncelet

Combine the Mike Castle trail with the Ben Cardin trail to go between Chesapeake City MD to Delaware City DE, a distance of about 15 miles. The trail runs along the north side of the C&D canal (Chesapeake bay to Delaware river). It is asphalt the whole way, but you can take short gravel excursions if you want. About midway, the trail deviates from the canal to go around a marina. This diversion includes some hills and hairpin turns. Be careful of your speed if on a bike. Other than these diversions, the trail is flat. It can be windy near the Delaware City end (the eastern end).

Lums Pond State Park is just to the north of the trail. It has camping, hiking, and a lake for boating (but not swimming).

Suggested restaurants include Schaeffer's Canal House in Chesapeake City, Grain H2O at the marina midway along the trail, and Crabby Dicks (end of Clinton St in Delaware City--with a great view of the Delaware River).

I like to start at one of the parking spots along the canal and ride the roundtrip (about 30 miles). I get lunch at one of the restaurants.

Schuylkill River Trail

Awesome

Awesome trail

Delaware River Trail

pleasantly surprised

June, 2021 by songsop

I hadn’t ridden in Philly in a while because by parked car was hit and run once and vandalized soon after. I was done. However when I returned to my car it was as I left it. The Delaware River-Penn’s landing area was very nice.
