All reviews green lane bike ride great place to walk valley forge crushed stone great for families entire length walkers runners montgomery county plenty of parking beautiful scenery state park parts hiking shade spring paved
Parts of the trail are paved and parts are fine stone. Some sections are wooded and some are not. The mile posts are well marked and there are occasional benches but it could use more benches. For the most part hikers and bicyclists coexist quite...More
This is a great trail and a wonderful way to spend a Saturday or Sunday. Living about 2 Miles from the trail makes it easy for us to get too. There is plenty of parking and it is very safe. Now my wife and I...More
Love walking this trail with my pups. The beauty is amazing between the canal and the river. The only problem is many people walk their dogs off leash with little control. If your pup is reactive to dogs running up to them unleashed it could...More
The trail is great for walking, running or biking for as long as you like. It's safe and pretty even for a " trail". If biking wear a helmet just in case. Lots of nice people hit this trail so it's a neat social walking...More
I grew up along where part of the tail is now. It's nice, peaceful, and beautiful. A safe place to get out and enjoy the weather in all the seasons. Lots of shade. Long trail that goes for many miles. Pick up at any point...More
Visiting relatives in Collegeville, so decided to try the Perkiomen Trail for a stroll. Although the route in town runs close to a main highway, once the road is crossed the noise quickly fades and Nature takes over. A very welcome walk on a Saturday...More

I live right by the Spring Mount section. There is the Spring Mt Hotel/bar & Johnnies italian restaurant in the parking area for the Spring MT to Green Lane section. Mainly woods bridges little parks that follow the west branch of the Perkiomen Creek to Green Lane. I personally prefer to go north on RT 29 approximately 3 miles up from where (RT 29 & RT 63) meet. Turn left on Knight Rd. There are 5 trails you can do from the 3 trail head parking areas on your left off of Knight Rd. Red Trail access point is off of Knight Rd in 2 different locations. The Blue trail access is a little further up across the bridge on Knight Rd. Both trails are shared with horses & follow around Green Lane Reservoir. If you would rather rent a kayak, paddleboard, canoe or row boat once you turn right at gas station onto RT 29 north @ RT 63 go about 100 yards before hill turn left onto Hill Rd & follow to the Hill Rd entrance. There are grills & picnic tables & shade. This entrance is the lower end of the Blue Trail (7 miles) again following the reservoir. Depends on what you want to do. My dogs & I LOVE GREEN LANE PARK. All three entrances have maps at the trail head. BTW it is BEAUTIFUL here when the leaves change in the fall. You can fish too! Hope this helps. If you see a big version of the dog in the picture along with me & my sheltie. Say Hi! Some spots have little waterfalls & small streams after a heavy rain. Enjoy!

the website has a map, do a search on Perkiomen Trail and it comes up right away. (Tripdvisor doesn't allow me to put websites on this form). It varies between paved/unpaved...so I'm not much help with that.
