According to sign at Elm St, Depot St access is closed for construction.
Great trail until you get close to tinicum. Trail completely closed. Had to go down and up steep embankment to get onto road. It reopens after 100 yards or so. We went up pa side from Stockton and returned on Nj side to avoid it on return. Nj side much wider.
There’s definitely some really nice areas of this trail with lots of woods and tree cover on a hot day. However, there’s also just as much where after run off has taken its toll, there’s large loose rocks and deep muddy ruts everywhere. Bear in mind starting in Montrose you’re slowly descending for 9 miles. Coming back is more challenging. It’s truly a nice trail but you need to be very aware of sudden changes in the trail. Nice ride, but probably won’t be doing it twice.
My son (age 8) & I really enjoyed this trail on our bikes, leaving from a home in Clarks Green and accessing the Clarks Summit trailhead off Old State Road after a short bike along the Old Lackawanna Trail. (Crossing 6/11 may have been the trickiest part of the whole expedition!) The trip northwest towards Dalton was almost all downhill, and a delight. I got confused by the trail where it hits Arch Ave. near the Abington Little League baseball fields, as it's not clearly marked and the road seems like the right way to go, and we had to turn left on the busier Ackerly Road to return to the trail. But anyway, the downhill part of the trip was a breeze. When the boardwalk met S. Turnpike Rd., we turned around after a brief water break, and then it was all uphill from there. My son had to walk a few times. He loved zooming down the steep hill at the tricky spot that saw us lose the trail coming the other direction, by the ball fields, and we walked up the steep hill of the footpath. But we made it, and topped off our trip with a pair of delicious cones at Manning's scoop shop in the shopping plaza at State St. & Grove St. A lot of fun, and a great trail, thanks to the Countryside Conservancy (https://countrysideconservancy.org/about/).
The trail is moderately level. Some ups and downs but relatively easy. Many places are only wide enough for one bike. Some super muddy spots. Overall the trail could use some grooming and TLC.
My sons (ages 8 and 7) & I really enjoyed biking this trail. We parked and started at the Olive Street trailhead and went south to Elm Street, then back up to Poplar Street, where we had a great riverside snack at Sweeney's Beach, and then rode back to our car. Highly recommend. My youngest had to walk a few times uphill, but otherwise, great riding for our skill levels. Highly recommend. And thanks to the many, many people who've obviously worked hard to bring this amenity to the public.
Nice trail, well maintained.
Nice, quiet and flat ride along the canal. First time riding this portion. Unfortunately, saw trash in the canal including soccer balls, basketballs, diapers, red stool with a yellow seat, plastic bags, styrofoam containers and other debris. It wasn't a lot of trash but just enough to sully the view of the canal. Could have been blown in by storms but some of it looked like it was placed there by humans. Positive side: peaceful with cool-looking large turtles and ducks :) There are probably volunteers that work very hard to take care of this part of the trail. If I could have somehow fished out the trash, I would have done so to help them out!
The levee is a beautiful scenic trail from Wyoming to Kirby park. I have been riding by bike for 30 plus years on the trail. The grass is always cut and the trail is well maintained, however the voids in the pavement have been getting worse. A contractor performed a lick and a promise on the cracks last year. The workmanship was well below industry standard's. Every time I ride over the cracks my teeth chatter. Please look into this concern.
Just ok, nice community trail
Loved this trail it’s a great ride. Just the right amount of Challenge to make it fun. Not to many hills not to difficult it was a really fun ride. Can’t wait to ride it again.
