Great for running or strolling....too many road crossings for a good bike ride

My wife and I use the rail trail several time per week to do our exercise. While it is great for walking and running there is a road crossing ever mile or two where you have to... read more

My wife and I use the rail trail several time per week to do our exercise. While it is great for walking and running there is a road crossing ever mile or two where you have to get off your bike to cross the road and then get back on. Since I like to ride 20 -25 miles per day... More

This is one of our favorite walking and biking paths. The scenery is tranquil but more importantly it is safe and traffic free, except for certain crosswalks. On the path you see individuals, pets, couples, friends, and families. You often get a friendly greeting or wave. We have a family member that lives off the trail n Hellertown so we... More

This is one of the best features of the Lower Saucon area. The rail trail is the perfect setting for a peaceful nature walk or to get some exercise. We often see deer along the side of or even crossing the trail. We even spotted a blue heron in the wetlands area near the Water St park recently. The trail... More

I really enjoy this trail for running and its nice to take the dog on without having to worry about getting hit by a car. The only annoying this is when bikers are on it the dust from the gravel gets in your face. Definitely not a fan of that but otherwise it's a nice scenic run.

It is so nice that the Saucon Rail Trail was put in and that it continues to grow. It has such a picturesque setting and I feel very safe going out on the trail alone. I wish there were more parking places along the way but because it literally goes right through people's backyards this wouldn't be possible. Great for... More

There are several areas you can enter the bike, walk, running trail. The trail is only 1% grade so easy for anyone. Stay to the right of the trail to allow passing of others using the trail. When passing warn the person's you are passing. Google Saucon Rail Trail for more information.

Best thing Saucon ever did was to open the rail trail. It is a quite path that leads from Memorial living Park in Coopersburg to Hellertown. Great for walking the dog with bags available, running, riding bikes. Nice and quite shady with mature trees. i only wish they would extend it even more. It is the best part of my... More

The trail goes from Coopersburg to Hellertown, winding through wooded areas, through 2 golf courses, a park, a stream, and beautiful backyards. Periodically, there are benches if you need to take in the scenery or rest. The trail is relatively flat, but be careful since the trail crosses some busy streets, and sometimes drivers are not too careful about watching... More

This trail is beautiful! It passes through wooded areas, parks, and streams. In some places, it borders a golf course, suburban yards. It also runs past the Hellertown Historical Society. The trail is very well-maintained. It can be accessed from many parking areas. It is within blocks of several small towns, so food and drinks are available nearby. Although close... More
