While the trail itself is a little short for biking (what I primarily use it for), there is a gate right off of it into the West Laurel Hill Cemetery-- a fascinating place with extensive intertwined roads and lots of the hills. The funerary architecture is amazing. There's parking right across from the gate on the trail, off Belmont and Levering Mill Road, but I usually park at the Rock Hill Rd trailhead (shares a lot with a CVS). From there, it is pretty much all up hill (slow rise, but noticeable on a bike) to Cynwyd Station and you can also turn off to do the bridge over the Schuykill.
