Road a seven mile section of the Heritage Rail Trail (miles 15-8) today and was really impressed. It was my first time on this level and scenic trail. Lots to see and the trees provided great shade throughout the trip. It was a little busy in sections but overall it was an easy ride (ideal for my 10 year old). Definitely recommend this for people with kids who want a trail that is well-kept and thoroughly marked.
Every Saturday and Sunday morning, i like to take my dogs walking on this trail. It's a great way to get my workout/steps in.
Good distance with some nice shady spots. Fairly easy paved trail with nice scenery and very quiet.
Really enjoyed our trip on the Warrior Trail today from the Garden Drive-In to Shickshinny, about 7.5 miles. Grabbed lunch at J-Angelos and found a picnic table in Shickshinny Park before heading back to our car. Elevation change was 62ft. one way which feels very gradual over 7+ miles. There were a few puddles and muddy patches, not surprising given the recent rain. Also quite a few tree limbs growing over the trail that we had to duck. Overall a very nice trail with little traffic on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. As we were leaving I noticed there is a trail section heading north of the Drive-In, it appears to go at least to the intersection with Rt-29. Maybe we'll park at near JJ Banko's next time.
I was underwhelmed on my first trip on this trail. Rode from Hares Hill to Rapps Dam yesterday... the trail was closed from Rapps Dam to Township Line. I was able to ride 1.2 miles on the trail This trail is about a 4 mile round trip if you go the full distance (not one way) and the paved section is less than a quarter mile.
Still, nice scenery and the bridges are beautiful with some areas to pull over and picnic or swim. I was able to ride about 2 miles up Rapps Dam/Mowere to the Schuylkill River Trail trailhead and take the trail to Spring City, then the same route on return for a good 10.5 mile ride.
The French Creek Trail is unsuitable for road bikes. I was on a Trek 3700 with fat slick tires and that was OK, but since most of the trial is natural surface a knobby tire would work best. I also had my toddler riding in a seat on the back but he was OK with the bumps (rocks, roots) and I was careful to take it slow.
I would love to see the trail continue to be developed and paved as it offers great scenery and could easily connect Kimberton with downtown Phoenixville
So much has been written about this wonderful trail, and our experience was the same. One of our favorite things was that the trail was mostly shaded, making it possible/comfortable to ride on a warmer day. The surface was well cared for, and the friendly maintenance crews were mowing while we were there. It was great to see the many benches and bird shelters located all along the trail. We came from approximately two hours away, and consider ourselves lucky that the trail is one of our "local" options!
My wife and I love this trail. It makes you feel like you're in the Poconos, but in reality, you're still in the city. We love nature.
Rode the northern section of the trail, from the parking area in Mountain Top to Middleburg Road, which was about 8.5 miles according to my GPS. Trail condition is great, mostly smooth double track. The elevation grade is noticeably steeper than other rail to trails. Next time we'll start in White Haven, pedal north and coast all the way back down.
I biked a short stretch of the trail between Poyntelle and Preston Park with my hybrid bike and it actually wasn't that bad, although I did have to keep my eyes on the trail at all times to avoid scattered large rocks. Most of this section is open to ATVs (and snowmobiles in winter) although I didn't encounter any during my ride. Definitely not for road bikes or those expecting a perfectly smooth surface. There was a steepish hill south of Preston Park with many large rocks which those with less robust bikes might want to walk their bikes over (though mountain bikers might enjoy it). Mostly a "green tunnel," but some views between the trees in spots.
As a separate matter, note that the first two miles north from Simpson are closed until October or November of 2017 for installation of a gas pipeline.
Please note that the trail is closed between Simpson and Union Dale from May 2017 until October or November 2017 for installation of a natural gas pipeline.
We rode on hybrid bikes from Hare's Hill Rd trailhead to Township Line Rd. trailhead. The 2 bridges over French Creek are quite impressive for such an undeveloped trail. Hopefully someday the trail will match their magnificence! Most of the trail is natural surface and the section between Rapps Dam Rd and Township Line Rd is just a little wider than a rocky deer path. Many muddy areas encountered as remnants of rain puddles. Nice day out exploring but not what we had expected.
From where this trail turns off of the D&L it climbs gently along a stream. There is one very rough bridge and then all too soon you reach where the trail is blocked. We saw no sign of construction still going on. Still it was a pleasant ride, mostly in full shade, which was appreciated on a hot June day.
