This is a hard one to rate properly. I completed the entire trail from Green Lane to Oaks today. The path is paved and gravel (loose and pressed), which makes that part of it easy, especially with the distance. Aesthetically, it’s hit or miss. There are lots of beautiful parts of this trail, but there are also plenty of boring and not-so-beautiful parts. There are quite a few major street crossings and walking behind businesses, but that’s up to the individual how to feel about that. There are a couple of restaurants that back right up to the trail in the Schwenksville area, so that could be fun to plan to stop at. The 12% grade that’s been mentioned here and there is right by Spring Mountain, so about 6 miles in coming from the north. It goes up and turns in a few spots, so prepare your footing accordingly. The people along the trail are mostly polite and keep to themselves. Lots of dogs all throughout and each one I encountered today was well behaved.

I hiked the Orange Trail, east and west loops. The east loop is about one mile total and combined, they are close to three miles. Nice walk in the woods. Easy, with some elevation.

Very nice trail! Clean and very well maintained, I hiked this trail with my dog and we had a great time

very hard to bike

This hike provides a wide variety of landscapes and nice view of the reservoir. We saw an abundance of wildlife and bountiful wine berries ripe for the picking. The loop is really closer to 12.5 miles and took us 5.75 hours to complete with a lunch break. I hiked with my dog and my sister.
