Perkiomen Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Perkiomen Trail extends the Schuylkill River Trail system northward into the Perkiomen Creek Valley. The trail connects the many parks in the valley, from Lower Perkiomen Valley Park in the south to Green Lane Park in the north. If you cared to do so, you could load camping equipment on your bike in Center City, stay overnight at the campground in Green Lane Park, and return the next day as many bikers do during the summer months."
