I have been riding this trail for a couple of years now. The trail is flat and puts you along some very nice scenery, river views from Oaks Pa down to the Philly Art museum. The trail connects to Martin Luther King blvd in Phila. which is closed to cars on the weekends, providing a nice wide street to ride on safely, its’ fantastic. It’s nice to go from suburban to urban down into Manayunk and through to center city. You can park at one of the many trail heads along the way and ride a good number of miles non-stop and there are some great places to stop for coffee or a craft beer along the way. That’s the good.
This past weekend I went for the first time this season and I found it getting a bit more dangerous than usuall. There’s quite a few folks out there that have falsely convinced themselves that the Tour De France is in their future and this trail provides their own personal training ride. The trail for the most part does not accommodate 3 or 4 riders across in a safe manner. That being the case there are many times where the fast and furious riders try to overtake slower riders while there are folks coming toward them in the opposite direction creating a 3 across situation on a narrow path. There are also the groups of riders who “need” to ride 2 and 3 across to chat and refuse to go single file when other riders approach in the opposite direction. I have been forced onto the lawn a few times last year. All of this behavior is at best rude and at worse dangerous. I have seen collisions that have sent people off to the hospital that could have been avoided with a little bit of behavioral modification toward the courteous side. If you’re out there “training” you can spare a second or 2 to apply the breaks and or go single file to avoid a dangerous situation.
This site promotes the rails-to-trails conservancy which attempts to raise money for these types of trails. These trails can be great and worthwhile benefiting many people in the long run by promoting a healthier lifestyle that has a cost benefit to the entire society. However if there are accidents that leave people bloody and in need of an emergency room tax dollars and donation support for this will dry up. The trails (this one in particular) could benefit from some signage outlining proper etiquette and behavior. It would be money well spent.
we decided to try out this trail and found that is absolutely wonderful. not many hills at all which was great. it was busy at times but not bad at all. will definitely make this a favorite of ours for weekend rides.
I rode the trail on 5/20/17 starting at Hellertown's Water Street Park to East Landis St. in Coopersburg, and back again (approx 14 miles). Nice flat, wide trail, packed cinder. Lovely spring day with wildflowers in bloom all along the trail. Water Street Park is nice starting point with lots of parking and public restroom. Since there is a slight 1% grade uphill heading south, the return ride heading back north was just a bit easier. I viewed the map online before my ride and noticed you have to ride through Upper Saucon Community Park to pick up the southern section of the trail.
This trail is awesome due to mature and well designed landscaping. Greater still is that it connects with Thun SRT system.
this park is beautiful!!! the Martin Trail takes you through this scenic park with some shady tree spots and some exspansive valley views. easy walking trail around Valley Forge park but there are also some dirt trails through the park if you want to go your own way.
This is a great trail for running or walking (maybe not biking until they extend it...would be a quick bike ride). Parking lot is small, but it was not busy on a Tuesday morning in May (use address 3700 Trout Island Road; Sharpsville, PA, to get to the lot). The only downside to the trail was that there were huge swarms of gnats the entire time I was running, which was annoying. Perhaps that would only be at certain times of the day or year, though.
Brought my 7 year old 9 year old 12 year old and they enjoyed the different trail surfaces. Was an easy ride with well-marked trails. We'll return and ride the loop trails off of the Swatara Trail.
Having children with us, this trail was perfect. Nice n wide n the distance was perfect!
I have ridden the trail many times, from Milford and from Dingmans Ferry.
I love the surface. Just enough gravel to protect the trail. I love riding through the pine forest areas and over the pine needles.
I do wish the trail was rideable just past Raymondskill Road. This is the hiking only section. Otherwise, this is a beautiful option for families or groups to get outside and enjoy the river, the corn fields, pine forests and all that this gorgeous trail has to offer.
Lucky to live so close.
there are so many little paved loop trails in this park. it has incredible views, a creek wandering through it, a disc golf course (if you like to throw frisbees while you hike!!) and plenty of trees to shade you on sunny & hot days or protect you from rain showers on cloudy days
The first 3/4 of a mile the trail is very fine stone from edge to edge, after that the trail gets rough. We had to walk the bikes through what looked like a stream crossing the trail. The "steps" near mile 2.25 should be noted in the official description of the trail, not buried in riders comments. There is some nice scenery on the side of the trail away from the highway, whoever even the sound of the stream rushing over rapids could not drown out the noise of the highway.
The first and last miles are not too bad as far as trail maintenance are concerned, there was also a short section near the middle where some recent work was done. That earned the one star. The trail is very close to a busy highway, except for a section by an active shooting range. I was confused by the signs that read, "Stay on Trail, Keep Moving" when there are new benches there. There were several areas with drainage problems, water flowing over the trail and cutting gullies into the trail. If you just want to be alone this is a good trail, we rode the entire 12 plus miles out and back and saw 2 walkers and no other bikers, not surprised at that fact.
