We parked at the Bailey Road trailhead/parking and walked approx 2 miles on the gravel surface for 2 miles which almost takes you into the trailer park. Trail weaves through a cornfield passed a large pond. You will cross over Johnson Road and the trail continues to near the trailer park.
Tried biking this section. Due to it not being asphalt paved, and the gravel is relatively a few years old, it's kinda rough. But nice for a walk.
A section of this particular section is actually on the old railroad bed.
Cute thing to see on this gravel section is the fallen log that sticks out on the trail and it's painted to look like an alligator. Nice to see someone took the time to decorate it! (See photo submitted).
Gravel parking lot at Bailey Road has parking for approx 20-30 cars. Also offers a picnic shelter with tables.
This trail handily connects the Schuylkill River trail to the Wissahickon Valley Trail. This allows you to park along the river on Kelly Drive and make your way over to Wissahickon if that is your goal.
My husband and I rode this trail today. We started on Kelly Drive and took the Schuylkill River Trail to the Lincoln Drive Trail and then picked up the Wissahickon Valley Park Trail and rode it to the end and back. It was beautiful and peaceful. We saw other bikers, hikers, horses and even a wedding ceremony. We will definitely be back again.
We rode the Uwchlan (pronounced you-clin) Trail from the Struble Trail UP HILL to the intersection of Pennsylvania Drive and Eagleview Blvd., where we turned left which took us to the Brandywine Hospital. From the hospital parking lot we crossed on to and turned left on Old Township Line Road to right on West Township Line Road to right on the Uwchlan Trail at Penna. Drive to right on the trail at Rice Blvd. and back down to the Struble Trail. The lower part of the trail is thru a wooded park and very scenic, the upper portion is an asphalt sidewalk beside mostly not too busy streets. I had written out a detailed turn by turn description of the trail, good thing as the trail is not well marked. Also, some of the bridges while visually pleasing, had rough transitions on and off. (I've never understood why a paved trail should not have smooth transitions at bridges.) Still overall a very enjoyable ride. When combined with the Struble and Lions trails they totaled over 13 miles out and back.
We rode this trail on a weekday in the early afternoon and found it to be quite enjoyable. After crossing over the Perkiomen Creek on Egypt Road we turned onto the well marked and well maintained trail. Most of the trail is in or along the edge of a park so the scenery is pleasant. There is a steep climb less than a mile from the beginning of the ride, 120 feet of elevation gain in about 2 tenths of a mile. If you don't like steep climbs ride the loop counter-clockwise. This trail makes a great addition to a ride on either the Perkiomen Trail or the Schuylkill River Trail.
We rode this trail on our long wheelbase recumbents (not recommended). There is a sign at the trailhead at Hares Hill Road that states the trail is 2.1 miles long, and it is, not the 4.6 miles listed on the trail description. Also only a very short maybe 1/4 mile is wheelchair accessible. The scenery is wonderful, the trail is a mountain biking trail (similar to Blue Marsh Lake trail). A nice place to walk if you live near by, not worth the drive to ride there.
I started from the very south end of the trail off of Triangle Tech Road on 10/21/2017 and biked uphill from here to the end of the trail. The surface is comprised of small gravel; not crushed limestone. The trail passes thru rock cuts with a nice tree canopy for the 1st three miles with lots of glacier rocks nestled in the woods next to the trail. At mile #3, the trail opens up very briefly before entering back into seclusion. You will cross over Wolf Run several times via 3 bridges. There are 4 mileposts on the trail but they are not accurate; distance between mileposts is less than a mile. There are several picnic tables along the way nestled between the trail and the embankment of the cuts. Occasionally, one will get a glimpse of the BP&R Railroad tracks that parallel the trail on its west side. The only complaint that I have regarding this trail is the trail surface itself. Most Rail-Trails use a fine crushed limestone that is rolled making for a firm riding surface with minimal resistance. The surface of this trail however was comprised of small gravel which offered more resistance and frequent fishtailing. I found this trail absolutely gorgeous and it is well worth the trip to experience it.
Please check that the trail head is open after November 2017. The impression I got after reading the signage at the trail head is that the trail might not be accessible at Simpson, PA until the beginning of 2018; even then, I suggest that you check that it is open and accessible.
Trail is very nice in Scranton but things are poorly marked. maps are limited and it seems there is no overall plan or management to show people where to park and where trail goes. At Olive street going north no signs to show how to stay on the trail. Sure love riding and walking it and would make more use of more of it if there was better info.
Just wanted to share that the section from Marietta Boat Club to and including the parking lot at Decatur St is now completely paved. This is the formerly dirt, then gravel, "woods" section that is an alternate to the "town" section that now has signage in Marietta. The lowermost section extending down to the boat ramp parking lot off Furnace Rd is not paved, and from what I understand may never be completely finished due to Norfolk Southern's right of way for the active railroad tracks. Also, for trail users beginning in Columbia, there is parking off Front St directly under the Route 462 (Veteran Memorial) bridge. This eliminates the active railroad crossing for those who wish to get right on the trail across front St.
Rented bikes from Cumberland Connection (they were AWESOME!). We didn't get on the trail till 4:30 and made it to Gunter Hotel in Frostburg by sunset at 6:29. It is a lot of uphill walking from the trail to downtown Frostburg. Ask for room with new beds at Gunter and make sure and go to the mens bathroom to see the 'jail cell'. Ate at Shift which was amazing! We were on the trail by 8:40am, lunch at Rockwood (Rockwood Mills-the dessert were amazing!) by 12:30 and made it to Confluence by 3:30 for our shuttle pick up . We stopped many, many times for pictures! I hardly wanted to blink because this was such an amazing, beautiful experience!
Was in Pottstown for an event decided to take a ride while there.
Parked at Grosstown Road. Rode into Pottstown River Front Park. Trail was paved but rough because of tree root growth. Then rode west to the Main Street crossing. The trail west was mostly gravel in good condition.
Montgomery County portion of trail needs maintenance to the pavement. Tree roots are making the ride uncomfortable and possibly hazardous. Restrooms? Are there any?
Overall a good ride.
