is the parking across the river (along MLK Drive) any better? my presumption is that they won't be?
I tried parking at United last week but was scared off by all the signs that say if you're not a customer, you'll get towed. I ended up using the small lot on Lincoln.
See posts above from Oct '18. Cadence has now moved into the Manayunk Diner location. Not unusual to see cars with bike racks there anymore. As for route, this was my last ride there. Starting from the movie theater parking lot. https://www.strava.com/activities/2691257190Will be riding here Sunday afternoon for the first time, would welcome any parking and/or route advice.
Solid loop. Definitely some good stuff that was missed. Early bird avoids the crowd on weekends.Got off my planned route a few times and had to cut the ride short, but some great singletrack there and some very challenging climbs. Beautiful area, and would be also be fun to do the rail trail with kids. Was pretty crowded but everyone was cool so not a problem.
You are correct. New switchback trail will be constructed and I believe the old trail will be closed.If anyone is riding here anytime soon, the Bells Mill Monster is currently closed (not sure when its going to reopen), looks like they are re-doing the drainage and trail surface. Can't say it didn't need it, the next climb up just south of the monster is no gimme with loose larger rocks.
Excited about that, it was eroded to all hell.You are correct. New switchback trail will be constructed and I believe the old trail will be closed.
Yeah, just read that after I posted. Should be done soon according to the site which is nice, the top looked really good when I rode past it.By Pauline Berkowitz, FOW Capital Projects Coordinator “The Monster”: Building Sustainability on the Yellow Trail The steep, rocky section of the Yellow Trail heading south from West Bell’s Mill Road, is favored by park users who enjoy a physical and technical challenge – and known...fow.org
