Where: Wawa, 120 Schuylkill Rd, Phoenixville, PA 19460
Starting at the Phoenixville Wawa (Rt 23 and Rt 113), we will follow two famous streams as we traverse Chester,
Berks and Lancaster Counties.
From Phoenixville, we will follow the French Creek upstream towards the hills of the Coventry Forest. Along the
way, we will have a picnic lunch in Warwick County Park.
Make sure to pack a tasty lunch!
After exercising our rides on the twisties above Morgantown, we will let them dream of faster runs at Maple Grove
Daydream over, we will be on the final leg of the tour heading down to the Conestoga River. A visit to the Old Poole
Forge Park, on Route 23 by Churchtown, will bring our adventure to an end.
A few highlights along the way will be some old, unique or just plain interesting bridges. Give a shout-out on the
radio when you see a bridge that interests you!
Portions of the trip will be over the actual Horseshoe Trail, https://cart.hstrail.org/home/.
The Horse-Shoe Trail is a 140-mile long hiking and equestrian trail in southeastern Pennsylvania. Starting in Valley
Forge National Historical Park, the trail spans Montgomery, Chester, Berks, Lancaster, Lebanon, and Dauphin
counties, intersecting the Appalachian Trail at its end point.
The Horse-Shoe Trail Conservancy, established in 1935, is a non-profit volunteer organization that maintains and
preserves the 140-mile public Horse-Shoe Trail for hikers and equestrians.
Come and enjoy the beauty of Chester County horse country.
Please note – the Phoenixville Wawa is less than 50 miles from Lancaster.
