The Pennypack Trail is over 14 miles of trails beginning in Holmsburg, PA and ending in Huntingdon Valley. The trail follows the former corridor of the Fox Chase – Newtown Branch Line. In the Philadelphia area, the trail is paved, but once the trail crosses into Montgomery County it is crushed stone (not suitable for road bikes.) There are a few busy street crossings, as well as a train crossing, so obey signals and be cautious at these intersections. A popular access point for the trail is the entrance off of Byberry Road, just across the street from the Huntingdon Valley Christian Academy in Holmesburg, PA. The trail is open year-round, but is not recommended for after-dark use.
