Nice easy trail for biking with a mountain bike. Nice view of the river in the beginning, less of a view as you go inland.

Good for casual biking. A bit rocky so probably a mtn bike or larger hybrid tires

As noted straight and easy path. Considerable traffic.

You have to love the people shocked by the lack of elevation change and/or scenery. What did you expect?

If you’re looking for a leisurely stroll or to bike on a relatively flat surface this might be a good trail for you. I found it to be a bit boring. There wasn’t much to look at and it runs parallel to a main road so you hear traffic the entire time.

Went 3 1/2 miles from Bushkill boat launch. Probably the most boring trail I’ve done. Unless you really enjoy corn fields...

This section of the trail was wide and a very easy hike. We went in about a mile and a half to the Valley View Camp Ground and back

Attention bikers. There are stairs and narrow overgrown trails between Milford and Digmans. Mountain biking with my 9 year old son. Started at Milford beach and rode to Digmans campground. Trail starts off nice and wide and turns into a narrow singletrack trail with a few staircases. The trail turns back into a wide trail and again back to staircases and overgrown trail and back to a wide trail finishing at Digmans campground. Needless to say my son did not enjoy the ride due to the stairs and overgrown trail. I didn't see anything in the description of the trail about the narrow trail and stairs. Otherwise it's a nice trail if you know where the stairs are, you can bump out onto the road to avoid these areas.

Absolutely stunning bike trail, maybe the best in the region. Skirting golden fields with the ridges as backdrop, meandering through nature forest, enough good upheilland downhill to make for challenging moments, and of course the river!

Nice and easy, mostly a bike trail. Wide and almost completely flat, was a really chill walk in the park. We ended where the canoes and kayaks were cast off, there were no benches or shade over there so we turned around. Cute little cafe across the street from the start of the trail for snacks and Italian iced as well!

We hiked about half the trail. It's often very close to the road and one section of it, surprisingly, is a road. I was upset and embarrassed because there is no forewarning that there will suddenly be motorized vehicles on the trail. This trail would be much more suited to mountain biking than hiking.

Highs and lows, mounting biking portion, unsuspected part where the trail leads to the little cliff and had to hope off the bike and push it and carry it a bit before the trail regained its width.

I wasn't a fan of it, but it's better than not riding anything while I'm out in Pa

Husband and I biked 15 miles of the 32 mile trail -- from Dingmans Access to Bushkill Access -- along the Delaware River. Mostly easy to moderate in this stretch; trail runs along the river. Can take a quick dip in the river; some restrooms along trail.
