Corry Junction Greenway Trail

A less travelled trail with potential

July, 2017 by daveswife

Went bike riding on this trail with children and grandchild just yesterday. We had newbie riders and experienced ones. Everyone had a great time. The trail is beautiful and mostly flat.

We parked at the parking area just out of Corry and proceeded to ride our bikes north towards NY. The crushed stone in some places was deep which made it a bit challenging to pull trailers through it. This was only in a couple of areas and short distances. The newbie riders came to a stop upon hitting it and had to walk a little ways.

We rode middle of the day and there was plenty of shade to make it pleasant and avoid sunburns. There are a few benches and new picnic tables along the way.

Once we crossed into NY the trail wasn't as nicely maintained. Needed a good mowing. The overgrown grass was a bit much for the newbies and the trailers, so we turned back.

Definitely will ride this again and look forward to running it as well.

BTW no toilets at parking area.
Also, have to cross a few roads; one was fairly busy so be careful with children.

Conewago Recreation Trail

This plus another trail

July, 2017 by kiasmama223

Started at Mt. Gretna then rode towards Middletown. Was on this trail, then another for a total of 20 miles (full trip)-Just can't remember the name of the other trail but it connected right into this one. It was a wonderful ride. The trail was in very good condition and was very enjoyable. A few places to stop and have a lunch if you wanted to.

Penns Creek Path (Mid State Trail)

Tunnel Complete and ready to ride

July, 2017 by ghritter9680

Rode the Penns Creek Path thru the completed remodel of the old train tunnel. Included some pics. On the other side of the tunnel is the Poe Paddy Campground, and another 3 to 4 miles further up the road is the Poe Valley Campground and lake. Lovely ride along the Penns Creek until you get to the tunnel, then the road turns to a dirt road to take you to the parks. Saw quite a bit of blooming mountain laurel today, and enjoyed the cool temperatures thru the forest. There are picnic tables and comfort facilities in the park you can use for free.

Great Allegheny Passage

Just great!!

July, 2017 by jfriez

Can't say more been riding the YRT trail for years!!

Chester Valley Trail

Nice and flat, lots of access..lots of road crossings

July, 2017 by komalley1

A popular well kept asphalt trail of 14 miles. Many points of access as the mostly tree-line trail runs besides neighborhoods, corporate parks, and shopping centers. There are many well marked road crossings with gates and audible crossing signals. If you're riding the entire trial, all the crossing can become a bit burdensome.

I look forward to learning how to connect, on the east end, to the Schuylkill River Trail that goes all the way to Center City (PHL). That would be nice to include on the trail information page.

D & L Trail - Asher F. Boyer Trail (Slatington-Northampton)

Really Cool.

July, 2017 by jamminjr57

This trail runs from Northampton along the Lehigh River to Slatington,10 miles, then continues to Lehighton for another ten miles. there are stores in Slatington and Lehighton for water, snacks, Gatorade etc. I'm looking to ride 60 miles Sunday and this trail is probably it. I'll be double covering some of the trail. Mostly shaded. I still recommend sunscreen. Great riding.

Wyomissing Creek Trail

Museum section not bike friendly

July, 2017 by joelkring

While I agree that the scenery along this trail is wonderful, the section of trail through the Reading Museum grounds is a bumpy ride on a narrow path. By the looks of the people we passed, I got the feeling that bikes were not expected or welcome. Next time we will stay on the roads.

Angelica Creek Trail

Trail still needs improvement

July, 2017 by joelkring

We started at the Brentwood parking area and rode to the Angelica pool and back. The stone and gravel sections of the trail are smoother than many of the paved sections. The tiny trail markers made it challenging to follow the trail at times.

Powerline Trail (PA)

better than I expected

July, 2017 by joelkring

This is a great short trail. The rolling hills were not too steep or too long and were fun to go down. The trail is in excellent condition. There are controls for flashing lights at the road crossings but most of the roads were not busy at all. Okay scenery for being under a power line. Not much shade as most of the trail in near the center of the power line cut.

Peace Valley Park Hike & Bike Trail

great scenery, rough trail

July, 2017 by joelkring

The parking area where we started had no signs or maps of the trail, we saw another biker and she told us we were on the trail and that it did loop around the lake with a short road section. We began by climbing a hill, when we got to the top I saw a sign for riders going the other direction of the 8% grade approaching. Turns or intersections were not marked especially when it came to the road section. Most of the trail has significant washboarding, very bumpy ride. The scenery is great, that earned the stars. Also, the porta-potty at the parking area was one of the worst I've ever been in and as a frequent trail rider (58 so far this year) that's saying a lot.

East Branch Trail (PA)

Short and Sweet-Well Maintained

July, 2017 by vicki1960

3.1 miles of the trail is completed and fully asphalt paved in very good condition. Flat and fast.....great for bicycles, rollerblading, strollers and walking.
There are 3 parking areas, 2 of those located on Route 89 and one on Main Street in Spartansburg at Clear Lake Park.
Trail runs 1.5 miles North of Spartansburg along side of Clear Lake.
Dirt section follows the trail which is used by Amish buggies.
In Spartansburg there is a large parking area with a picnic shelter and a portable restroom. On Main Street there is an ice-cream stand and a Dollar Store a few hundred yards off the trail.
Trail runs 1.5 South of Spartansburg.
The trail does continue where the asphalt pavement ends but it's nothing more than a dirt path. You could probably hoof it!
Trail in very good condition and well maintained.

Allegheny River Trail

Franklin to Emlenton to Franklin

July, 2017 by stevepocock

Leisurely ride to Franklin. Overnight at Barnard House B&B (lovely) and back to Franklin the next day. Path was stellar. Smooth and level. The tunnels were an adventure. Bike headlights were enough, but it was still a surprise at how dark it is in the middle of the Kennerdell 3/4 mile. The detour at Sunny Slopes is a big disappointment and the road is not maintained well, so be prepared to dismount if you're on a road bike. Fortunately that detour is only 3/4 mile and most of can be ridden at this point, but at some point the state needs to exercise its domain rights and force the man who is blocking the improvement of the detour road to allow it. Ridiculous and mean-spirited. Lovely path, full of interesting sights and not crowded at all. Excellent.
