I would recommend this training. it is easy and so beautiful for walking, biking, riding horses and I saw a few kids skipping. lovely.

Trail is mostly dried out now...nothing significant. There are numerous large trees down over the trail that make you limbo or vault, but the dog, three kids, and I managed just fine.

West and East loops are both impassable from the parking lot after the storm on 29-May due to downed trees and branches. East is bad to worse before you hit the impass and West is OK until you cross the street and immediately hit 3 downed trees. I turned around at both impasses but I can't imagine it gets better. Not that it is worth anything considering the downed trees but the trail itself is incredibly muddy. Gonna take a lot work to clear the whole trail.

Trail is super muddy now, so stay on the gravel Perkiomen Trail until it dries up.

Agree with those of you that note this loop is 12+ miles in length. Done this several times and it usually takes me right around 3 hrs to complete at a pacey clip. Highly recommended. AllTrails profile should be updated.

Much of this was paved, or gravel/mud horse trails. If you look, you’ll often find a lot nicer, more narrow foot path in the woods closer to the lake.

Good trail and really enjoyable combination of technical and trails, with a little path. Worth noting I clocked 20.8km for a full circuit from Hemlock car park, on to black to blue trail, and back on red.

Great trail, well maintained, level for the most part except for a brief 12% grade, crowded when we last went but it was the first nice day of the year and everyone was generally spread out enough it wasn't a problem. Connects directly to the schuylkill river trail on the south end. The northern 2 miles of the trail above Crusher road were closed when we went, not sure why/how long

Road it to Pheonixville. moderate bike ride.

I would not recommend this trail for beginners. I just started hiking 2 weeks ago, I’m 48 and 240 lbs. it claims the hike is 10.5 miles. I followed the map perfectly and map my hike says it is 12.5 miles. A big difference for a fat guy like me.

nice flat trail next to the creek. pleasant stroll.

Nice hike.. would be great in summer months. Trail is not marked well enough to do in winter time with leaves and mud.

A great day hike with beautiful views, nice diversity.

Brought my 9 year old and took my 9 month old in a baby carrier on this trail, so I would definitely say it’s family friendly! Kinda muddy but other than that it was great - will definitely be back!

A family favorite! The kids and our older dogs really enjoy this trail the most.

I love running this trail. Very well marked. Difficulty level varies depending on what side you are on. Some days the run calls for steep and rocky terrain. Some days it calls for a nice flow with some rolling hills. Or run the whole thing and get the best of both worlds. Plenty of bathroom, porta potty, stops. Two thumbs up.

I parked at one of the main lots for the park and fishing area. It took me awhile to find the trail entrance. Once on the trail, I was much happier! It was an easy hike with mostly flat terrain. Any steep incline spots were visibly marked prior for all guests. There were long lasting spots of the trails without any shade. My advice would be to bring LOTS and LOTS of water for those long sunny areas!

A quaint little trail that I’ve been going through almost 3 times a week for nearly a year. A great place to get daily exercise in. Can get very wet and muddy on the way back from the east loop.

Love love love this trail, never crowded and great mix of up and downs

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.

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.
