The Lake Galena Park Hike & Bike Trail (alternatively the Peace Valley Park Hike & Bike Trail) offers 6 miles of blacktop along the shores of Lake Galena, just north of Doylestown in eastern Pennsylvania. The scenic trail travels through woodlands and meadows and is generally flat, except for one hill at the northeast corner of the lake.
A good place to begin is at the nature center at the eastern end of the lake. Along your journey, you'll find an abundance of recreational opportunities, including playgrounds, fishing, boating, picnicking and nature hikes. Note that some areas of the park are restricted to the public for wildlife preservation. Keep a lookout for birds; more than 250 species have been sighted here, including cardinals, woodpeckers and finches. You also might see deer, groundhogs and muskrats.
At the end of the trail, you can continue the circuit around the lake on Creek Road, a lightly trafficked roadway.
Parking is available adjacent to the Peace Valley Nature Center (170 N. Chapman Road), as well as off New Galena Road and Creek Road.
