But none of these Although less than 2 miles, the Port Richmond Trail—a key component of the North Delaware River Greenway—provides an important connection between northeast Philadelphia and the Delaware River. The bikeway is constructed on an Although a small part of it follows the route of the former Pickering Creek Railroad, Ok for walking or as a cut through to avoid busy roads. Not good for road bikes. Narrow, bumpy and muddy. I clocked it from one end to the other and came out with. If you walk one end to the other and then back, it would be 1.
Hoping it will be improved. Very nice paved trail from Columbia to Bainbridge. Beyond Bainbridge you need a mountain bike and know how to use it.
58th Street Greenway
We struggled for about a mile on a hybrid but it wasn't worth it. Beyond Bainbridge trail turned to dirt and intermittant large gravel. Trail kind of peters out into tall grass. Ride offers parallel trail at Marietta one through town and one along river, both are nice and suggest both especially for round trippers as the 10 mile ride each way is nice for a round trip. Traffic on trail became heavy on weekend after 10 am.
Trail is narrow so for those who like to cruise I do not recommend a weekend. This is one of my favorite trails so far here in Delaware. I appreciated being able to go pretty continuously without stopping at a light except for one. The signage was a bit confusing as there were multiple locations with trail intersections that were not the Greenway Trail. Also, there is a 2. Whether this is due to trail erosion or unclear signage, I was frustrated that there are apparently 2 miles of trail that does not exist.
For that reason I am marking g down to a 4, otherwise the varied landscape and hills intermixed with flat areas and thick trees was fantastic.

I enjoyed this bike trail. Great for the non-pro riders who just wanted a nice bike ride. The trail begins at the park. Paved trail with no difficult hills. Ride continues past a meadow which I am sure will be beautiful in the fall. It is a short trail, approx 2 mi but was good enough for me! It may be perfect for the families who ride with younger kids. I've never walked this end to end but have walked the various sections many times over. My favorites are Alapocas and Rockwood. Great scenery along the way. Can't wait til the expansion to New Castle opens!
The limited access bridge provides another way to get over Schuylkill into Philly south of Manayunk near entrance to Wissahickon Valley trails. You can do a fun loop along Schuylkill River trail, take the Cynwyd trail bridge over river, continue on Cynwyd Trail and cut through cemetery the signage is great back to Pencoyd Bridge. Found nothing scenic or enjoyable on this trail. Rode thru questionable areas, not enough light in the tunnels to see the ground, crossed two busy roads, rode the trail right next to the women's prison.
This is my new favorite trail. It is flat, shady and immaculately maintained. Not one rough spot in the paving, not one piece of trash on the entire 14 mile length. There is lots of green space on both sides of the trail so that most of the time you don't realize that you are in the middle of quite a built-up area. We've started at both the Exton end and the King of Prussia end 2 different days and in both cases rode about 7 miles to Media, where we had lunch, and then did the return trip. The Exton end is very flat while the King of Prussia end has a few not-too-difficult hills.
There are a few road crossings but they are well controlled by lights and the drivers in this area seem to be familiar with the trail crossings and often stop before you get to push the button for the traffic signal. The only crossing that is a real pain is going over Route if you want to ride past Main Street at Exton.
We won't bother with that again. The trail is well used by walkers and bikers on weekdays but there was not so much traffic to make it feel crowded. Not sure how busy it is one weekends. We love this trail! TrailLink is a free service provided by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy a non-profit and we need your support! Elkton Trails and Maps.
