Little Lehigh Parkway

Average Rating:    (3.83 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 6

Mostly wide, flat gravel paths that parallel the Little Lehigh creek on both sides with interesting, technical singletrack offshoots for the more adventurous, skilled rider. Watch out for the Christmas Light displays during the holidays.

Summary:
Great trail for beginers, my 10 year old is starting to learn and he's doing great on this trail, even the singletrack.

Recommended Route:
Start at fish hatchery and try to ride the uphill singletrack, then continue downhill and loop back up park area before riding the park.

Summary:
I actually ride these trails more than once a week. There are so many different technical trails to take - some of which you really have to look for to find. The trails here are very diverse and challenging. Some good logs to hop over too.

Recommended Route:
The gravel paths are nice but taking the side trails is more fun.

Summary:
This is my home trail so I have to give it a 5/5... if you are a beginner you can stick to the gravel loop that parallels the canal on both sides. If you are more advanced there are numerous side trails that can keep you busy for hours (keep your eyes open... if the canal is on your right, look to your left for excellent climbs/decents). I recommend hooking up w/ someone who knows the area, or just explore it on your own.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
South Mountain, Jim Thorpe

Reviewed by: Brian , from Bucks County

Summary:
This is a great trail if you have a friend or significant other you want to get into riding. The main road is gravel and generally level excpet for a few easy climb. Although there is a couple of semi-technical trails that run off the main course. Great for tutorials for inexperienced riders.

Recommended Route:
Start at the fish hatchery

Reviewed by: Sid , from Pa

Summary:
I always thought the Parway sucked until I road it with
with some people who know the place. There is a ton of
tough climbs and single track in that little area just
look to the out side of the main trail when riding there are about 20 trails off the main one that go to
the top and then back to the main loop.A real good ride
is to ride up south mnt. and do one loop of the single track at the parkway this will give you a 25 mile ride.
For a good thrill go to the mulch dump and do the 80 ft
drop into the parkway ( it's real fun at night )

Recommended Route:
It is a loop so you can start any were in the Parkway

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lehigh/Thorpe/Bluemarsh/South Mnt./Jordan/The Burg.
