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!
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.
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.
We used this for the return from Pine Grove. It’s a great trail but no flat like Swatara Trail. Don’t use unless you are ok with climbing some hills, one with a grade in excess of 10%. They are no long, but just letting you know they exist. Enjoyed the fall colors.
Great tandem ride from Lickdale to Pine Grove and back. The Swatara Trail is a mix of rough gravel, new pavement, old pavement, crushed limestone, a little dirt, and even some grass lawns thrown in just before the end in the parking lot of a Hampton Inn. Kinda strange, but no big deal. We can back vis the Bear Hole Trail. It’s also very nice, BUT if you expecting a flat trail, return via the Swatara Trail. The hills are not long but one exceeds 10% grade. Otherwise, it’s a great route back. Very q on both routes.
Switches from gravel to fine grit to dirt. The north spur is mostly grass and dirt and I can see how it could become muddy if it had rained. But overall a very pretty wooded ride.
We rode the western section of the trail, most of the time there is constant noise from the nearby highway. The trail is well maintained but the stone surface is rough compared to many of the stone trails we have ridden. Much of the trail was in full sun, which on a cool day in October was okay. Also the rest room (portable toilet) at the train was closed and a sign read, "Closed for spring cleaning".
We started our ride by doing a loop around the South Williamsport Community Park then on to the Susquehanna River Walk trail to the Timber Trail, back onto the SRW and then on to the Susquehanna Bikeway. We also rode the Canfield Island Heritage Park trail, a very scenic little loop and a loop around a pond in Indian Park near the north end of the Bikeway. For the most part the trails are well maintained, but there is no escaping your proximity to the highways for most of the ride. Not a bad trail but I prefer more seclusion.
Great ride on a great trail. It was in near perfect shape with the unpaved sections nice and packed and smooth. There were hardly any sections with deep or loose TSA, trail surface aggregate. Keep in mind there is some double track as you approach Reading but my handcyclist friend said it wasn’t too bad. But be aware if you’re riding a trike if pulling a trailer with kids. Beautiful, uncrowded trail with great river views especially at the bridges.
Good ride for a flat lander from OK with wiener dog in toe. Short but very pleasant!
I parked at the mid point of the trail, near the lake. Started off and found the trail was extremely overgrown with weeds. I found it difficult to navigate as the trail was very narrow for the bike tire.
We wanted to try a new trail and this was the closest trail with a distance worth driving for. The trail is in stellar shape, well maintained with paved sections at both ends...crushed gravel over the majority. As it’s coming in and out of two towns, lots of crossings, safely identified and set up...just know that. Beautiful Farmland here!! We started and ended in the Madisonburg end as we then went to Rusty Rail afterwards, which you can either walk to from that terminus or drive over to.
