Bucks County Area Hiking and Biking Trails

The Circuit Trail system takes advantage of the many opportunities to build and connect trails across the region that is a product of the area’s success in re-purposing unused rail corridors and developing linear parks along the region’s waterways. Indeed, one of the major goals of the Circuit is to provide access to the region’s rivers, creeks and streams. Just as importantly, the Circuit will also serve as the backbone for a network of "bicycling highways" that will allow safe and efficient travel by bicycle between homes, businesses, parks, schools and institutions free from motorized traffic.

The D&L Trail follows the 165-mile route that anthracite coal took from mine to market. It winds through northern mountains and along the banks of the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers through northeast Pennsylvania, the Lehigh Valley and through Bucks County. The D&L Trail passes through towns, industrial powerhouses and along remnants of the Lehigh and Delaware canals. This earthen path exposes walkers, hikers, bicyclists and others to some of Pennsylvania's finest wild lands, waterfalls, wildflowers and wildlife.

Completed in 1875, this former rail line was established by the Central Railroad of New Jersey as the High Bridge Branch. The line ran from High Bridge to Port Oram, currently known as Wharton, in Morris County. The wooden trestle was replaced by steel piers in 1930 and is now known as the Ken Lockwood Gorge Bridge. Today the trail spans seven miles from High Bridge to the Morris County line. It provides passive recreation to the surrounding communities through hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing.

This website has a nice list of trails in and around the Bucks County area. TrailLink is a free service from Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting local communities in converting unused railroad corridors into community trails. Since 1986, RTC has worked from coast to coast, supporting the development of thousands of miles of rail-trails for millions to explore and enjoy. RTC has helped craft rural trails that spool out over a hundred miles of open prairie, snake through mountain passes, span canyons and hug riverbanks, offering views of the countryside often unknown to the highway traveler. We’ve been a part of the connections between towns and suburbs, linking communities along vibrant corridors in much the same way as the railroads did in their heyday.
