Two Montgomery County bike trails are among the nineteen best trails in the Philadelphia area that will provide an exhilarating experience no matter your riding needs, according to the Philadelphia Magazine.

Perkiomen Trail is ideal for biking enthusiasts who are looking for a daylong ride.

The majority of the trail is just ten to 12 feet wide with a crushed-stone surface. It passes through open fields and wooded hillsides and offers plenty of watering hole trailheads alongside the Perkiomen Creek, which it follows.

The route runs for 20 miles and connects Lower Perkiomen Valley Park, Central Perkiomen Valley Park, and Green Lane Park.

Meanwhile, Valley Forge National Historical State Park provides an hour or two of easy biking close to nature.

There are over 20 miles of trails in the park, many of them paved and flat. Among the paved sections is the 6.6-mile Joseph Plumb Martin Trail on the south side of the park.

The park can be accessed from 1400 North Outer Line Drive in King of Prussia.
