I love this nearly hidden gem of a trail. You get to experience the expansive open skies as you cross the river and can meander through the woods in Lower Merion. Comfortable wooden chairs and benches are along the path and hidden on lawns tucked away for those that stray from the path. We extended down to the start of the trail in Lower Merion and then headed up the hills through Westminster Cemetery. We found that is possible to exit the cemetery through the back on a short path near a beautiful partially overgrown historic building and connect back to the trail.

While the trail itself is a little short for biking (what I primarily use it for), there is a gate right off of it into the West Laurel Hill Cemetery-- a fascinating place with extensive intertwined roads and lots of the hills. The funerary architecture is amazing. There's parking right across from the gate on the trail, off Belmont and Levering Mill Road, but I usually park at the Rock Hill Rd trailhead (shares a lot with a CVS). From there, it is pretty much all up hill (slow rise, but noticeable on a bike) to Cynwyd Station and you can also turn off to do the bridge over the Schuykill.

A Manayunk must-do! Highly accessible, on foot or on wheels, for all ages and abilities--with a nice cafe (and a train into the city!) at the finish line.
