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!

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.
