Located about 25 miles east of Philadelphia, the Pemberton Rail-Trail is an excellent example of grassroots activism resulting in the creation of a community-based rail-trail. The group most responsible for getting this trail built is the Pemberton Rotary Club, who took the leadership role in planning, developing and maintaining the trail. Walking, Biking, Cross Country skiing.
This is a lovely trail to jog first thing in the morning. Although the far west end passes by a smelly water procesing plant, the rest follows the Rancocas Creek for a delightful hike-jog-bikeride in a tunnel of trees. Watch for deer, boxturtles, rabbits, squirrels, chicadees and other active wildlife.You can park either by the former Pemberton rail station or across from the Burger King south of the trail.
