Powerline Trail (PA) Description

The Powerline Trail in Horsham Township connects schools, parks, business centers and neighborhoods along an easement managed by PECO/Exelon. Parts of the trail have road crossings, so use caution. The trail will eventually extend west through Montgomery and Upper Gwynedd townships and east to the Pennypack Trail and Cross County Trail in Upper Moreland Township.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and restrooms are available at the south end of the trail in Lukens Park (540 Dresher Road). Towards the northern end of the trail, parking can be found at Jarrett Road Park (726 Jarrett Road).

Powerline Trail (PA) Reviews

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.

I LOVE that you can ride horses here!

This is a great find. Wide smooth trail that was a breeze to walk.

there is a good sized parking lot near the south end or the trail. it's located on Dreshertown rd stone unpaved lot. which makes it a little rough but once you get to the trail it is like warm butter. I can't wait till more connections are made. It would be nice in the future to replace the portable potties with something permanent

This trail is great for long distance push. The pavement is pretty smooth for the whole trip, not a lot of shade though. There are some moderate hills which I would either foot break slide or just walk down. Dog walkers frequent this trail; though, so be prepared to step off and jog around them. Over all its a great trail to start off or train for bigger distances for long distance push or long distance pump. Definitely don't want to miss this trail.

Modest elevation changes. Very open, so you will get sun. Smooth paved surface in very good condition (2014). Love to see this connect up to 202.

Because a huge power line follows the trail (or vice versa), there is little shade. That being said, there is plenty of nature to be enjoyed along the power line's right of way. The path is well-paved and dotted with parks, tidy neighborhoods, vegetable gardens, and even a tree farm. The trail would benefit from some sort of distance markers (other than those of the most recent 5K) since it's basically an out-and-back path.

Had a great bike ride. There was lots of activity. Connects to the Horsham Library, a dog park, and Kohler soccer fields. Really nice ride. I will definitely do this trail again.

I am always looking for a new trail to run. This one is awesome. I started at Dreshertown Road and went to Cedar Hill and back! Beautiful, no trash, well kept and hardly any people! A greeat way to see beautiful Horsham Township. Kudos to all who creted and are maintaining this trail!

The trail is now like 6 to 7 miles long with the connection of the trail from Babylon Road to Kohler Park (route 152 entrance). The eventual plans are to connect it to the 202 Parkway Trail in the Montgomeryville area.

Enjoyable path for walking, jogging, and relaxed pace biking.

I scoped out this trail for the first time today, walking from the lot at Dresher Road up to Norristown and back down again. Looking forward to when all of the leaves change....it should be lovely! Well kept, not much trash at all. Definitely worthy of 5 stars.

Wide newer paved path through wooded areas that goes through a dog park, soccer fields, passed a golf course, and softball fields.
