Ready for the summer?

It’s already beginning the May and summer is right around the corner! So, today I brought some places for you to exercise and be ready for healthy summer. It’s Rails to Trails near PJPII High School.

  1. Perkiomen Trail – The Perkiomen trail spans 20 miles and was established in 2003. Most of this trail is gravel and some sections are paved. Some sections don’t have many hills. My favorite part of the trail is the parts that are under the trees. Even on sunny days, trees block the sunlight and keep you cool. You might be able to see turtles, deer and even a fox on the trail if you are lucky!
  2. Schuylkill River Trail – The Schuylkill River Trail stretches 18 miles, from Philadelphia to Mont Clare, with a long-range goal of extending it to 115 miles. Most of this trail is paved. There are not many trees like Perkiomen trail, so it can make you really hot during the summer. My favorite part of this trail is the river right next to the trail! Once in awhile, you can stop on the bench and enjoy the view of the river. During the summer you can also ride a canoe or kayak instead of walking and jogging.
  3. Lehigh Gorge Trail – This trail is about 20 miles long and has a river nearby. I chose this trail because the picture of it looked beautiful. At their website dcnr.State.pa.us, they also mentioned that you could enjoy fishing, hiking, biking, hunting, and even Cross-Country skiing! I haven’t been able to try this trail yet but I will find out soon!

 

To enjoy the summer 100%, why don’t you start visiting these during weekends and get ready for the perfect summer? Happy trails!
