There were too many Road barriers and stops along the way. There were many detours for construction.
Smooth surface the entire length of the trail and the shade from the trees in the hot days of July was a plus. The down side of this trail is the deafening noise from the traffic on 202 and that there’s not much in the way of scenery. Also, many traffic intersections... Note: we started at the King of Prussia end and rode to Exton, but the last mile or so of the trail was closed.
Not a long trail, but completely paved and a beautiful way to see all the high points of the park. There is a spur that goes down to Washington's Headquarters and museum, which is really great.
I used to bike the Schuylkill River Trail starting from the Art Museum area for years. Now starting in Delaware County, this trail is a great entrance option to the SRT, crossing the river on its own bridge that puts you on the northern edge of Manayunk, beyond the bulk of trail congestion and road-hopping. (From there you can take the paved bike path on the side of Umbria, or go a block back down Main to the stone/boardwalk trail, to Shawmont Station and beyond.) This is a great option to avoid riding on busy roads, with blind corners, hills, little to no shoulder, and major intersections to get to the trail for a longer ride.
It’s beautiful, spacious, paved (though will have gravel and dirt spots after a heavy storm, so be aware)- overall a great find!
Headed north toward Manayunk is an easy downhill sloping grade, steeper than it seems until you come back: if you ride the trail from here to Valley Forge, the last mile or so back to Cynwyd Station on this trail is the longest climb.
The only drawback- but it’s a big one for many cyclists- is the Manayunk Bridge doesn’t open until 8am. That’s a few hours too late for most long rides. The option of following this trail to Belmont Ave., crossing at Green Ln., adds in all the dangers mentioned above, taking away the main advantage of this trail’s dominant feature.
I will definitely be using this trail when I start rides later in the mornings or mid-day, but will miss it as a safe option to the SRT on earlier (mostly all) rides when the bridge is, for some reason, closed.
Very scenic, started at lehigh canal park in weissport, great parking.Took up past glen onoko.Thanks Brian for recommending!!
Well shaded, easy terrain. Our family loves hiking halfway down the trail to a little “beach” along the creek where the kids and dog can jump in and swim.
Great running path, people are few. Only problem is there so trash, but the local groups keep it clean that it does not Ruin the trail
This has parts that are next to roads like sidewalks, but most of it is entirely off road. Though most of it is wide and paved, there is a section that is slightly narrower and has a backed pulverized tiny stone which makes a reasonably good surface for my road tires on my hybrid bike. It will get your bike frame dirty from what gets slung by your front tire. The grade is just a little steeper than most rail trails, but it doesn't last that long. It goes though a large complicated intersection. The traffic light walk don't walk system works well.
This trail was paved, wide, unfortunately only 1.76 miles long, and entirely off road. It, however, connects to Pomeroy and Newark Rail Trail which goes a little less than 2 miles. There is an active railroad paralleling the trail (we saw two trains go by while riding our bikes). There were parks, playgrounds, ball fields, a skate board rink, and adult exercise equipment along the path. The hills on the trail were both gentle and fun.
This trail feels like European palace gardens and woodland . . . it has that "estate" feel to it. The drawbacks are the noise from cars and the very scary short segment on egypt road (they should put some form of barrier there, someone is going to die one day).
While the animal life in general is abundant if you come in June just after dark there are tons and tons of a rare species of synchronous firefly in the fields.
Not bad for an urban trail, to one side is buildings, to the other side is the river. The trail and the park it travels through are well maintained. Worth a visit if you are riding the Schuylkill River Trail through Spring City.
Beside there being no place to park, except along the narrow road, there is no clear entrance from the road onto the trail. Add to that the trail is becoming overgrown by lawns, due in large part to its short length (the 0.4 mile length is generous) and poor access. Not recommended.
