Skippack Trail

Trail end points: Perkiomen Trail and Thompson Road Length: 3.3 miles Trail surfaces: Asphalt Activities: Biking, Walking The Skippack Trail traverses a township of the same name in eastern Pennsylvania, about 40 miles northwest of Philadelphia. Its western end connects to the Perkiomen Trail, a 19-mile north-south route from Green Lane to Oaks. From there, the pathway follows the Perkiomen Creek for its first half mile before heading east past a residential area. Here, you'll head up a large hill, under a set of power lines. At about mile 2 from the Perkiomen Trail, the Skippack Trail splits; one branch goes north to the picturesque Village of Skippack. The trail's eastern end offers wide open landscapes and ends near Evansburg State Park, a scenic recreational area bisected by Skippack Creek.
