Description
Waypoints (0)

It seems everyone in Manayunk knows the tow path along the river. Few have found this trail from downtown Manayunk to the Baga Cynwyd SEPTA station, and it's got it all: views over Manayunk, the canal, river, and freeway, a pleasant stream, interpretive signage, access to the historic cemetery, and even a cafe at the end of the trail! With virtually no elevation change and both paved and unpaved paths, it's accessible for everyone from walkers to runners, tricycles to road bikes. Accessibility: The paved trail surface is most accessible for wheelchairs and strollers and is typically at least eight feet wide. The grade is mostly gentle (all estimated under 5% except for a steep 12% section at 0.2 miles).

WalkingGreat!

Great trail for a gorgeous day! Loved seeing the Cynwyd Station at the end of the trail. Easy paved trail for my son who is currently in a wheelchair due to a broken ankle.

Only did a small portion of the upper section. Paved path. Very warm and sunny. No shade midday. Mild downhill (steepness limited by the grade of the former railroad).

Ok mixed terrain addicts, this one is for you! About 1/2 road riding (as I live in south philly), 1/4 protected bike lanes, nice gravel run and a smidge of single track. Love this ride!!

Not a hike but a beautiful walk reminiscent of the Atlanta Beltline with city views on the Manayunk Bridge Trail

Easy trail, entirely paved. Most of the trail is noisy due to traffic around, especially on Schuykill Expy.

Nice easy going trail with some decent scenery along the way. The Trails End Coffee shop is unfortunately closed right now if anyone was looking forward to it such as myself.

This was a nice easy hike, took a little over an hour to complete the trip there and back. It was a bit crowded and there were bugs out, but otherwise a pleasant experience!
