This is a short trail so it’s perfect for the new riders in your family and for teaching little ones the joy of bike riding.
Valley Forge National Park Loop
AKA the Joseph Plumb Martin Trail. Stop along the loop to see the historical sites. Bicycle rentals are available.
Betzwood Park Trailhead for Schuylkill River Trail
From here you can go in many directions for many miles! Try biking to the Philadelphia Art Museum. Stop in Manayunk for lunch or make a pit stop for a cold brew at Conshohocken Brewery. Go west to Collegeville or Phoenixville for less trail traffic and a quieter ride.
Wissahickon Valley Park
Great shade on this ride! There’s even a covered bridge that dates back to the 1700’s. Many bikers use Forbidden Drive because of its flat, gravel path. The Yellow Trail and White Trail are also accessible to bikers.
Chester Valley Trail
This is a rail-to-trail ride along U.S. Routes 30 and 202 through central Chester County from West Whiteland Township east into Montgomery County.
The Circuit Trail
Greater Philadelphia is growing a vast regional network of hundreds of miles of multi-use trails connecting many of our communities. Find trails and learn what’s happening on the circuit.
