About the Trail

The Pennypack Trail was built on the Fox Chase-Newtown SEPTA rail line. It is a  6.2 mile crushed stone path that travels along a scenic corridor beginning at Rockledge Park and continuing north to the Bucks-Montgomery border at County Line Road. 

 The trail crosses the active SEPTA West Trenton line. Please obey the signals and gates when trains approach! 

Please push the buttons to activate the signals to alert motorists and still proceed with caution when crossing, look both ways and bicyclists please dismount!

The trail continues north, bisecting the lands of the Pennypack Ecological Restoration Trust (PERT). This conservation organization is dedicated to preserving the natural landscape of the Pennypack watershed. Many areas are environmentally sensitive, so please do not venture off the main trails into the woods.
