This trail might be good for hiking but it is terrible for biking. Very narrow in most spots. It is real bumpy and poorly maintained. Compared to the rail trail in York County, PA, this Maryland trail is a major disappointment.
We were a bit strapped for time but we were able to ride our bikes from the route 372 trailhead to the Fairview trailhead. The gravel path is in good shape and the new bridge over route 222 was in place. A easy ride and we are looking forward to going further on the trail the next time we are in the area.
Generally flat, gravel/small rock trail along the creek. Enjoyable trail run for all seasons.
This is one of my favorite rides, which we do every year in the fall when the leaves are turning. Spectacular. Superb trail, gorgeous & varied scenery. We do an up & back ride from Betzwood to Green Lane Park over two separate days, with Central Perkiomen Valley Park as our mid-point. All three endpoints offer welcoming amenities - restrooms, water, picnic tables, beautiful surroundings. The trail is not for road bikes/tires - trail is rough in many places for extended stretches. There are several hills besides the infamous 12% grade going up Spring Mountain. They are currently doing some township work - a sewage pipe project I think - that is large & visible for about 1/2 mile along the trail, with a black barrier along the trail. Unsightly, but temporary until the project is over. Does not affect the trail except for aesthetics over that 1/2 mile stretch.
Users should note that the 5+ mile section from River Rd access to Safe Harbor dam is currently under construction due to the much-awaited reconstruction of the Safe Harbor trestle bridge. While the trail is open/accessible to almost the 5 mile mark, the trail is bisected by a chainlink fence and there is equipment activity on and around the trail. Completion is expected by 2021. The Martic trestle bridge (lost to fire several years ago) is set to be rehabbed and reopened as well, making an almost uninterrupted trail from Washington Boro to Atglen.
Started at west Atglen trailend, not much gravel. Muddy. Love Amish country though.
Many will access this from the Schuylkill River Trail in Manyunk, crossing the bridge over the river and the expressway. That way, it is a gentle uphill ride to the train station on a well maintained trail. Once one gets to the train station and turns around, give a few hard pedals, and one can coast almost all the way back. When I have been on it, a nice variety of users. One is unlikely to run into bike racers, as it is too short for them. From signs I have seen along the trail, there may be improvements (amenities) from local groups who may be adopting the trail. There are some benches and also signs pointing out spots of interest.
We biked from Falmouth to Marrietta and back. Awesome trail!
Fun walk across the bridge with beautiful views. You get a great view of the Philadelphia Skyline. Only one walkway on the bridge is open but is easily accessible.
Loved the raised garden beds, was able to feel like walking thru a fall park, with all the bright colors and leaves. Park was clean, plenty of people walking thru, a lot walking their dogs. Wish there where more swings, only 4 so first come. Area history was interesting.
10/24/20 - friends and I rode the newly completed section at Falmouth. What a beautiful job they did. Nice wide path to Bainbridge, where it connects to the rest of the trail. If walking, beware of snakes! My friend almost ran over a rat snake that blended with the pavement. Copperheads are blending with the leaves.
Walked from 222 bridge (bridge not quite open yet as of this writing but looks to be soon) east to Green Tree Hardware on Georgetown Rd. Route 222 to trailhead at route 372 crossing just east of Quarryville is in good shape. Mostly well maintained gravel. East of 372 it is less good but easily manageable walking or biking. A lot of gnats and standing water along the sides in the trenched portion. Otherwise OK all the way to Hollow Rd. From Hollow Rd to almost Lamparter Rd, it is NOT good. It was passable but not easily with lots of mud and the trail is not at all well-kept. An interesting tunnel under Mt Pleasant Rd was barely walkable but may not be during a wetter time of year. However, there is a nice alternative trail to this section on the north ridge which I think is actually one of the nicest portions of the Enola LG trail as it goes through beautiful scenic woods. When coming from the west after crossing Hollow Rd, instead of following the normal trail back down into the rail cut, go around the dirt mound to the left and follow the trail through the woods along the north ridge. The trail through the woods was easy to follow. It crossed Mt Pleasant Rd and continued on the north ridge and eventually provided 3 options to return to the main trail just before getting to Meetinghouse Creek. From there to Green Tree Hardware at route 896 was reasonable. When heading west, look for one of the three trail connections into the woods on the right just after the Meetinghouse Creek Bridge to take the much nicer alternate.
