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.
