Heritage Rail Trail County Park

4.5 stars

February, 2017 by tim.patz

Starting at Brillhart, south is a very nice run, including tunnel. I am sure fall is spectacular time to be on this trail.
North is likewise a nice run, especially passing the golf course area.
After that is the salvage yard, which is an interesting spectacle.
If the chance, definitely walk, run, bike this beautiful trail.

Warwick-to-Ephrata Rail-Trail

Great trail but will be even better

February, 2017 by kshell

This trail is great but it took a long time for it to be completed. Lancaster County has a good number of rail trails that are heavily used. Finally the local governments are realizing the tremendous benefits that these trails provide. I wonder when this trail will be finally completed from Ephrata to Lititz.

Blue Marsh Lake Multi-Use Trail

Needs Better Trial Markers, Need MTN Bike or Just Hike It

February, 2017 by tifoso0013

Just rode most of the trail, clockwise. There are so many side trails that look like they could be the main trail that it's easy to get off track. The main trail needs better signage, maybe it's own unique blaze, to distinguish it from side roads and side trails. Even white arrows painted on roads were hidden by gravel at times.

You really need a mountain bike to do the whole trail. I used a cyclocross bike and had to walk in many places due to big roots, loose rocks and loose soil on steep uphills or downhills. However, it is still fun - it can feel like skiing on a bike as you carve through single-track curves and bomb down the safer hills.

Chester Creek Trail

Wonderful scenic trail

February, 2017 by profwood1

Beautiful scenic trail. Excellent for walking , running, biking, family walks , dog walking, kids in wagons & strollers, and skateboarding. Lots of families were out on Presidents' Day 2017. I go there almost every day. Easy to get to & is near main roads.

Bedford Heritage Trail

Connects world class resort and spa and award winning downtown area.

February, 2017 by wehlingj

This relatively short trail (2.65 in length at present) connects a charming downtown area of the Borough of Bedford with the Omni Bedford Springs Resort and Spa. The trail is popular among local residents for exercise, and among visitors to the resort for exercise, shopping and dining experiences. The trail has two wetland ponds, two bridges, is adjacent to the Elks Golf Club, and uses borough streets and sidewalks as well. A local agency plans to extend the trail north from the downtown area to Old Bedford Village, a living history museum, and Friendship Village, a popular campground.

Susquehanna River Walk & Timber Trail

City and country

February, 2017 by keithdingler

As described you might believe this trail is only a few miles near the city of Williamsport. It connects to many more miles of urban riding remaining almost entirely off roads. There are several connecting trails to the north, south and east. If you were to ride all of these connections in a single day you could find yourself riding upwards of 50 miles. I frequently ride this trial, to the north you pass several community parks, soccer club, farmers fields and wetlands where you often see wildlife, at the eastern connection you ride further along the north side of Susquehanna river passing boat launches, fisherman, kayakers, and other side trails at Canfield island, ending at Indian Park in Montoursville. The southern connection takes you the river through the community of Sout Williamsport and ends at the community park adjacent to the Little League International complex. A very extensive network of connecting urban trials with access to both nature and city scapes.

Pike 2 Bike Trail

nothing else like it around as unique ¿¿

February, 2017 by ajhammond

My border collie and I love the old tpike! I can no longer do steep hills because of my ms, so this is one of the trails in my area that suits us great! And is especially nice during the peak of tick season because of the pavement, ticks are not as bad. Will always consider this one of my favorite places to hike in PA. walking in our normal wooded trails

Swatara Rail-Trail

Beautiful trail but with problems

February, 2017 by merlinsolis

We decided to ride on Super Bowl Sunday and check out this trail. We started from the Lickdale trailhead. We had two issues right from the beginning. First the trail isn't marked and we went the wrong way about 3/4 of a mile into a KOA campground. Once we hit the right direction, we encountered very large limestone, with the bikes sliding all over the place. After a mile, we hit crushed stone, which was great, then an old abandoned paved road. We could have used 3 different tires on this trip. Then at the halfway point the trail allows horses. It was all chewed up, very bumpy and not so much fun dodging the horse petunias on the trail and bridges! This could be a great trail if it were finished properly and horses were restricted to one side of the trail, said leaving part of the path smooth. The trail has some beautiful scenery and there was ice on the creek. The scenery will bring us back but the state of PA should/must do better to make this trail safer and to facilitate maximum enjoyment and not just survival. I beginning. The trailhead map doesn't indicate the direction of the trail. We went right and in 3/4 of a mile ended up in a campground. Once we got squared away we had our second issue. The state of PA put down large limestone on the trail. It was very dan

Blue Marsh Lake Multi-Use Trail

Circumnavigate entire lake in winter

February, 2017 by unklala

My daughter and I have hiked the entire lake, using the shore line thos winter. This is only possible because the Army Corps of Eng. lowers the lake every winter for flood control. We did it in 3 different sections (Thank goodness for Google maps) using some sections of trail, bridges to traverse areas interrupting the shoreline. Its a seasonal treat to hike the shoreline.

Lehigh and New England Trail

Parking scam

February, 2017 by adka

At the trailhead there is a warning sign that you run the risk of having your car towed, This will happen even if you park on the side of the road. If your tires touch the crushed stone you are taking a great risk. Avoid parking at the trailhead or the trail itself; it is not that great anyway.

Springlawn Trail

Short but bucolic

February, 2017 by pjdoehring

Walked the trail this past weekend with my daughter in her special needs Wike stroller and with her puppy and in the occasional snow squall at dusk (see pix). And I biked it today. Very quiet and shaded trail through the woods, bordering farmer's fields and sometimes the Big Elk Creek Creek, passing some ruins of of stone houses. There is space for a couple of cars to park right at the trailhead at the north end, but at the south end, there is only a muddy pull off maybe for one car 50 yards up the road. And if you have a large stroller be prepared to lift it over the gate. For biking, you can create a nice loop by turning east on Strickersville Rd at the south end, and then turning left onto Mount Olivet rd, which is closed to car traffic for now. Then you make your way back to the north trailhead via Walker and Peacedale roads and then Rt. 841 - 6 miles total.
