Users should note that the 5+ mile section from River Rd access to Safe Harbor dam is currently under construction due to the much-awaited reconstruction of the Safe Harbor trestle bridge. While the trail is open/accessible to almost the 5 mile mark, the trail is bisected by a chainlink fence and there is equipment activity on and around the trail. Completion is expected by 2021. The Martic trestle bridge (lost to fire several years ago) is set to be rehabbed and reopened as well, making an almost uninterrupted trail from Washington Boro to Atglen.
Started at west Atglen trailend, not much gravel. Muddy. Love Amish country though.
Many will access this from the Schuylkill River Trail in Manyunk, crossing the bridge over the river and the expressway. That way, it is a gentle uphill ride to the train station on a well maintained trail. Once one gets to the train station and turns around, give a few hard pedals, and one can coast almost all the way back. When I have been on it, a nice variety of users. One is unlikely to run into bike racers, as it is too short for them. From signs I have seen along the trail, there may be improvements (amenities) from local groups who may be adopting the trail. There are some benches and also signs pointing out spots of interest.
Great for a moderate bike ride, did and out and back in about 2.5 hours. Started in Easton where the North/South Trail meets the East/West Trail. Nice combination of different trail optionsz
Fun walk across the bridge with beautiful views. You get a great view of the Philadelphia Skyline. Only one walkway on the bridge is open but is easily accessible.
Loved the raised garden beds, was able to feel like walking thru a fall park, with all the bright colors and leaves. Park was clean, plenty of people walking thru, a lot walking their dogs. Wish there where more swings, only 4 so first come. Area history was interesting.
Walked from 222 bridge (bridge not quite open yet as of this writing but looks to be soon) east to Green Tree Hardware on Georgetown Rd. Route 222 to trailhead at route 372 crossing just east of Quarryville is in good shape. Mostly well maintained gravel. East of 372 it is less good but easily manageable walking or biking. A lot of gnats and standing water along the sides in the trenched portion. Otherwise OK all the way to Hollow Rd. From Hollow Rd to almost Lamparter Rd, it is NOT good. It was passable but not easily with lots of mud and the trail is not at all well-kept. An interesting tunnel under Mt Pleasant Rd was barely walkable but may not be during a wetter time of year. However, there is a nice alternative trail to this section on the north ridge which I think is actually one of the nicest portions of the Enola LG trail as it goes through beautiful scenic woods. When coming from the west after crossing Hollow Rd, instead of following the normal trail back down into the rail cut, go around the dirt mound to the left and follow the trail through the woods along the north ridge. The trail through the woods was easy to follow. It crossed Mt Pleasant Rd and continued on the north ridge and eventually provided 3 options to return to the main trail just before getting to Meetinghouse Creek. From there to Green Tree Hardware at route 896 was reasonable. When heading west, look for one of the three trail connections into the woods on the right just after the Meetinghouse Creek Bridge to take the much nicer alternate.
Great trail! Very scenic and the trail is wide enough for walkers, bikes, and electric scooters.
Great trail, super smooth to ride on and got a chance to see some great wildlife on the lake as well. Some stairs do get pretty steep to carry bikes up, but you’ll be able to cover most of the ground on a bike no problem.
Reviewed as recreational biker-
Path quality rates 4.5 stars, scenic value 2 stars
Hard stone dust very wide (12 foot) path with no puddles. Other than road crossings it is basically flat. Very safe to ride with small children. Completely flat means you pedal the whole way in both directions, not a burden but there is no fun coasting with the air blowing through your hair.
Path runs under a wide power line the whole way. Full sun. Even though it is an interesting hilly area, they dug through hilltops so you never see a view and filled in the low areas so you never see the streams below. There are a few farm fields near Quarryville but you are mostly on a wide path beneath power lines looking at the same treescape. A few interesting bridges as you go over busy roads. Goes through no towns. This is not scenic, as far as rail trails go.
Not overly crowded even on a beautiful Saturday in September. Only found one picnic table, at the West end where the trail is closed (why close so far from the scenic trestle instead of right at the bridge?). No Amish sightings.
Again, this is rated as a recreational (rail trail) biker. This trail is better suited to walkers or families not going far. Choose another section to bike for an scenic afternoon outing.
We saw 14 species of birds. Macadam trail. Has small hills. Runs behind development. There is a stream with a bridge going over. Nice trail. Close to home.
