    Really enjoyed this trail! There could be less of just constant rocks that make me feel like I'm riding a jack hammer. Plenty of fun rock sections and logs to hop though!

    Easy-to moderate hiking trails with a couple of steep climbing. Some great views - including vegetation. Would do this again.

    At about the 6 mile point, the bridge was out over the creek so we couldn't turn onto Main Street. Took the detour which took us about 4.5 miles out of our way. Not wanting to do an extra 9 miles RT in the 94 degree heat, we passed the turn onto Shed Road toward French Creek and stayed on the road we were on. At about the 12-mile point, we picked up the Schuylkill River Trail's Thun Trail and followed that to Birdsboro. From there we followed South Center Road back to the Daniel Boone Homestead. Total ride approx 16 miles.

    Trail was marked well. Pretty rocky and loose packed at times. Beautiful being in the woods, but not the most senic trail. Stopped at a creek and put my toes in for a minute. Would do it again.

    The ride was hillier that we had thought. the beginning and end are through farmland and is great. The highway was busier that we also thought. It is a great ride for those who need hill training.

    I view myself as a moderate skill level and I thoroughly enjoyed this trail. The map on this site is very outdated so I highly recommend contacting the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation & Natural Resources (PA DCNR) to get an updated map. Otherwise, it is a beautiful area and I highly recommend the ride.

    These trails are fun but if you really want to ride what French Creek has to offer then Race the "on the rocks at French Creek" race in the mid spring, part of the mid atlantic super series. It lets you go on all the trails that you otherwise would not be "allowed" on. And they, are where it really gets fun! It is very rocky but worth it.
