Green Lane Extension Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Hike through a diverse upper Montgomery County landscape of woods and meadows and deep ravines, around a forested lake reminiscent of New England."

"As you head out the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike toward the Lehigh Valley, you will notice the land becoming more rural and slightly hillier. There are a lot of quiet roads and trails out this way that you can enjoy as long as you don’t mind a few ups and downs. This ride will take you on a hilly ride in and around Green Lane Park.

Green Lane Park is a nice place to spend a warm summer day. Whether you want to relax on the beach, do a little fishing, or enjoy the biking or hiking trails, this park has enough variety to keep you busy. During the colder months people
use this park for ice skating, cross-country skiing, sledding, and ice fishing. Green Lane Park is at one end of the Perkiomen Trail, which is described in Ride 25. For this ride we are going to explore some of the roads around the park and climb a few hills to get a view of the rural landscape."

"Green Lane Park in northwestern Montgomery County has oodles of things to do, from fishing and boating to picnicking, and it has trails for equestrians, mountain bikers, and hikers. The park has three lakes within its boundaries, including the 814-acre Green Lane Reservoir, which was created from the damming of the Perkiomen Creek.

The county partnered with the water company decades ago to create the reservoir to ensure a reliable water supply for the area. The path is hard-packed gravel and starts off in full sun. The beginning of the hike has meadows on either side of the trail. There’s a fair amount of poison ivy along the narrow path, so be mindful of that while you’re walking"
