Buffalo Valley Rail Trail

Nice Ride, Mostly Crushed Aggregate

September, 2021 by shumakers

Lewisburg end start at the Miller Center/YMCA. First mile in Lewisburg is confusing and crossing Highway 15 is not at a crosswalk and the trail is not well marked. Mifflinburg end is just beyond the Rusty Rail restaurant. Lots of parking in that area. Lewisburg end first 2 miles are asphalt, many road crossings. Mifflinburg end is 1.5 miles asphalt. Middle is through cornfields and farm fields with several farm access road crossings. Could be a 5 star except for Lewisburg end and a couple of Highway crossings should be more visibly marked - cars don’t stop for bikes.

Schuylkill River Trail

Good trail with some significant irritations

September, 2021 by kws24

Overall a good trail but there are some irritations. The missing section between Lincoln Drive in Wissahickon and Lock Street in Manayunk is very annoying. You have a choice of dealing with the usually heavy traffic on Main street, or bumps, driveways, pedestrians and dogs on the sidewalk. This makes accessing Philadelphia from the north using this trail unsuitable, (or at least very intimidating) for novice/casual riders. Immediately north of that section there is a section on planks that will rattle your teeth loose, then there is a gravel/dirt section that tends to be muddy. This renders the trail undesirable as a commuting route. North of Shawmont Ave. it's good for a long stretch out to Oaks. Parking is not reliably available at Spring Mill or Conshohocken, which also makes the trail much less useful for commuting into Philly, especially on weekdays. The trail tends to get very heavy use, (increasingly so as one approaches Philly) and a considerable fraction of riders go faster than is appropriate.

Schuylkill River Trail

Easy and scenic ride - horrible etiquette

August, 2021 by zm00707

Ride this trail from Valley Forge / Betzwood Park into Philly and the return. While I enjoyed the scenery and the paved trail, I don’t recommend this trail on the weekend as a large percentage of riders don’t call out when passing and quite a few passed in unsafe fashion (eg zig zagging at high speeds around walkers, passing walkers while cutting in front of bikers from other direction, etc).

Lycoming Creek Bikeway

Nice trail. Relatively flat, although we did have a hard time finding the trailhead. Parked behind stadium in Williamsport. Trail goes through both urban and rural areas. Good for all, levels of riders.

Schuylkill River Trail

wish i had done the whole trail

August, 2021 by jeffdeitrick60

I used to live near philly and only did about 8 miles of the Philly portion. I am not a city person, but this area was beautiful. Trail was great. Extremely scenic. Lots of fun.

Pine Creek Rail Trail

Pine Creek Trail paradise

July, 2021 by dldjmitchell

The Pine Creek Trail is located in the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. We rode the 62 mile trek in one day and what a wonderful ride it was. The trail is exceptionally well maintained and God has landscaped this trail with beautiful mountains on each side and (this summer) a flowing ‘creek’ along side. The 62 miles flowed so smoothly that we reached the end before we knew it.

Conewago Recreation Trail

Lots of shade on this trail. Downed trees noted in an earlier review have been cleared. Could really use some fine gravel over much of the trail. Watch the crossing at Route 743. Cars are flying. Steep grades on either side of the former tressel.

Lebanon Valley Rail-Trail

Great trail

July, 2021 by jack.mcgarry

I did my first ride on this trail from Lebanon to Mt Gretna with a side trip to The Jigger Shop for an ice cream. 21 miles. My longest ride to date and it was so easy!

Pine Creek Rail Trail

Great for kiddos!

July, 2021 by federer_lisa

We just took our 11yo and 8yo from Jersey Shore to Waterville (22mi) and it was fantastic. Lots of scenic stopping points including a number of mini-waterfalls and 4 bridges. We stopped halfway for lunch at the Waterville Tavern and the kiddos played at the park adjacent to the restaurant. Headed back to Jersey Shore after that. While the grade seems relatively flat, there is a slight rise - so inexperienced young riders may tucker out on the way out. But the way back is much easier.

Conewago Recreation Trail

Needs work

July, 2021 by tandem42

The trail surface is in desperate need of a fine layer of gravel to make it a five star trail. Scenery is great, but its past time for some much needed maintenance.

Blue Marsh Lake Multi-Use Trail

absolutely stunning

July, 2021 by alyssarae122398

Trail had no debris or tree branches. Pathway was clear and it was a beautiful view! It was my first time with my fiancé and it was amazing! Highly recommend.
