Blue Marsh Trail is a 23.7 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Reading, Pennsylvania that features a lake and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from March until November. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
It's a long trail, moderate difficulty. The trails are well-marked. We only did 6.5 mi. of it today.
Im ganna have to go back because the main trail is long. My friends and i only had a couple hours since it was well over 90 degrees out. We chose a short loop trail that ended up being an atv tail. The lake seems awesome and very busy. Lots of water activity. My only issue was that the tails were not marked well. I just kind of guessed where i was and used the gps from the map to see where i may be. Other than that, im looking forward to going back :)
Long trail around the lake with some slightly challenging ascents. Mostly covered wooded trails, so there's good stretches of trail with shade. Difficult level is hard mostly due to length. As the trail is a big loop be sure to set a manageable place to turn back around or be prepared to trek all 23+ miles. Trail offers a good challenge for mountain biking.
Loved the hike, but I did get lost lol
I use the trails to hike with my dog. Well trained, obedient, dogs are welcomed off-leash. I always hold on to my pup and yield to cyclists and horses, though. I've done 15 of the 24 miles. Difficulty varies from easy stroll to very rugged climbs. Trails are extremely well maintained from mid-April until winter and marked (to include mile markers).
I live right around the block from blue mash and I love coming here and hiking a short distance or something long. Many trails
