As you start this hike, you’ll see plenty of young mothers with their young children. One reason for this is that the trailhead shares the parking lot with the park playground; another reason is that this is an easy hike with plenty of trees that provide deep shade. There are bicyclists pedaling along as well, but there is room for everyone on this 10-foot-wide trail, which is mostly paved and well-maintained. You get up-close views of Perkiomen Creek and two creek crossings—one on a modern iron bridge, the other on an old railroad trestle bridge.
