Saucon Rail Trail

Jewel of Eastern PA

December, 2020 by jmcginnis12@gmail.com

Stretching nearly 7 miles from Bachman Street in Hellertown south through the picturesque Saucon Valley to East Station Ave. in Coopersburg, the Saucon Rail Trail could easily be considered the Jewel of Eastern PA when it comes to multi-use greenways.
The trail is built along the route of the former North Penn RR, which once hauled iron, steel and coal from the mines of Northeastern PA and mills of the Allentown-Bethlehem metropolitan area south to Philadelphia. The line also doubled as a SEPTA commuter line until abandonment in 1984. The RR itself may be long gone, but numerous vestiges, including old telegraph poles and signal towers, one of which has been refurbished, rock cuts and several bridges that have since been repurposed for trail use, attest to the line's original purpose. The fact that the crushed stone trail is wide enough to easily accommodate two or more cyclists or hikers passing each other simultaneously is made possible by the fact that the line was double tracked for most of its length.
Other highlights along the trail include historical stone buildings and homes that are visible along the northern segment of the trail in Hellertown and Lower Saucon Township, palatial mansions of more recent vintage in Upper Saucon Township, quaint barns north of Coopersburg and the Hellertown wetlands.
The trail also passes several parks on its route, including Water Street and Grist Mill parks in Hellertown, Upper Saucon Township Community Park, located just west of the campus of DeSales University and South Lehigh Living Memorial Park in Coopersburg. In addition to providing opportunities for the kids to play or families to eat picnic lunches, these parks also provide convenient points to access the trail and feature their own, internal trail networks.
In addition to being a great, stand alone trail, the Saucon Rail Trail is also envisioned to become a vital link in an intercity greenway that will eventually connect the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton-Phillipsburg conurbation with the Philly metropolitan area. The Upper Bucks Rail Trail now extends from the southern terminus in Coopersburg south to Veterans Park outside Quakertown, and there are also plans to extend the trail north to Saucon Park in Bethlehem, where it will link to the South Bethlehem Greenway.

Conestoga Greenway Trail

Easy and Nice Scenery

Macadamed easy flat trail right along the Conestoga Creek. Approximately one mile away from traffic.

Northwest Lancaster County River Trail

Recreational biking when leaves are down Falmouth->Marietta

December, 2020 by curlybrian

Started at new section in Falmouth, great big paved parking lot. Nice paved trail on a Saturday in December. A roly-poly trail with turns. Great varied scenery when the leaves are down.

Significant water views with several spots with truly spectacular views (RR bridge). Nice fields and some woodsy areas. Paved trail is about 6-7 feet wide. There were several areas with picnic tables and several benches on this 8 mile stretch. Even a telescope to view Bald Eagles. About 5 places with facilities.

It was crowded in areas (Saturday in December), especially around Bainbridge. People are mostly friendly, but it is paved so there are the "stationary bike exercisers" that only look straight in front of them and down (even at gorgeous river front scenes). It seemed the narrower the tires the more miserable the demeanor. No dangerous road crossing. Many 4-6 person groups having a great social time.

Bring a picnic and enjoy this wonderful ride. Would recommend when leaves are off trees for more varied scenery. One of the most scenic trails we've done in the USA.

Perkiomen Trail

Gorgeous trail

November, 2020 by dee.zduniak

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.

Swatara Rail-Trail

Rough ride at Lickdale

November, 2020 by tatiana.royer

My husband and I started our journey on this trail at the Lickdale trailhead. I do not recommend starting there since trail for the first mile is very large gravel, making this a very bumpy ride. This section isn’t a rail trail , in our opinion. After this first mile the trail is either macadam (old road bed) or fine packed gravel. We rode to Sand Siding trailhead and back, approximately 10 miles. This is a beautiful trail with minimal traffic on a warm autumn Sunday. My rating of this trail would be higher if it was not for that first mile!

Conewago Recreation Trail

Nice, Quiet Trail

November, 2020 by denisegsteed

Nicely maintained trail, scenery from farmhands to woods. Some shade but open areas too. I parked at the Market St lot, (ample parking). About 1 1/4 miles in there is a little rock “canyon” and you can start to hear the river.

Elizabethtown Connector Trail

safely connects town with Amtrak Station

November, 2020 by captinbandwagon

Nice trail on smooth surface that connects downtown with the Amtrak Station and with Wisk Cafe. Also connects micro brewery Moo Duck on Brown St with the downtown brewery Funks.

Capital Area Greenbelt

by River it’s 5-star, rest is blah

November, 2020 by captinbandwagon

By the River in Harrisburg, it’s a great paved trail. The northern section by the River departs the River and winds through houses to 6th Street to join with Fort Hunter. That part overall is nice. The rest of the loop has varying trail surfaces and crosses roads and some biking is in traffic.

Northwest Lancaster County River Trail

Great ride from Falmouth to Bainbridge

October, 2020 by suzn_s

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.
