Even though we started early in the morning the trail was at times crowded with families - not all understanding the concept of social distancing :).

Great series of trails. The off rod trails run alongside the paved trail along Pennypack creek so frequent “breaks” on flat pavement are available for mountain bikers who aren’t in the best of shape.

Mostly paved by the river with some dirt trails into the woods. Dirt trails not the best scenery but nice scenery on the paved trail.

Did a mix of gravel, dirt and paved trails. Lots of little gnats on this spring day. Trails were in good shape and views of the creek were nice. Forget to stop recording at parking lot. Actually walked 3.1 miles.

Nice little out and back. First half was on the paved creek trail, then ducked up into the trails on the way back.

Nice trail - all on pavement, but one small section. It is not well maintained and the stickers get you! Enter that section with caution. Great trail for running and biking.

Not a bad trail. Very populated and lots of graffiti and random clothes/trash.

To date, these are and have been some of the best bike trails we've ridden. You can ride on the blacktop bike trail or on the horse trails for a more adventurous time.

Great trail to walk or run. Bikers too. Have walked many miles starting when the snow has melted to when it returns. Good to get in shape for more strenuous treks in the Poconos

This is a great trail except there are some serious hazards as of May 2019. First, there are some roots coming through the pavement at mile 13 (if you are doing round trip starting at Frankfort Ave) someone could literally kill themselves on that if they come around the corner and don’t know it’s there. Second, over abundance of clueless pedestrians and no signage telling them to keep right. Third, greenery is so overgrown that you can’t see what’s coming. A guy was riding on the left and nearly crashed into me, which I couldn’t see because of the overgrown bushes. I hope they make some improvements on this beautiful park.

Well groomed. Can bike. Lots of dogs. Not a lot of bathroom locations so plan ahead.

Nice, clean and easy trail for you and your dog. The trail is all paved with minimal incline. It’s perfect for Sunday morning jogging or walking. Love how close it is to my house!
