Audubon Loop Trail Description

The Audubon Loop Trail is only 2.5 miles in length, but is over four miles when adjacent sections of the Perkiomen and Schuylkill River trails are added. The trail begins in Lower Perkiomen Valley Park immediately south of the Egypt Road bridge over Perkiomen Creek. After crossing that bridge, it turns southeast, crossing the Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary and running behind local subdivisions. The trail turns southwest near the John Audubon home, paralleling Pawlings Road to the trailhead just south of Route 422, where it joins the Schuylkill River Trail. Trail users can easily loop back to the starting point by taking the Schuylkill River Trail west to Oaks, then going back north on the Perkiomen Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Lower Perkiomen Valley Park (101 New Mill Rd, Norristown) and off Pawlings Road.

Audubon Loop Trail Reviews

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.
