Trail Summary

Making its way along a preserved rail corridor, the Iron Horse Trail is a natural oasis in suburban southern Montgomery County.

More Detail

The Iron Horse Trail begins in Iron Horse Park, site of an historic railroad yard. The bikeway is a combination of trail, shared roadway and wide sidewalk stretching north to Stroop Road. A very comfortable on-road route may be used to connect this segment to Delco Park and then to State Farm Park, where the north segment can be accessed. Take Valleywood Drive from Wilmington to Dorothy, and follow Vale Drive and Galewood from Delco Park to State Farm Park.

Delco Park has looping walking paths and a BMX bike track to try your racing skills.

The Iron Horse Trail (north segment) begins in State Farm Park, follows County Line Road and travels along Spaulding Road on a widened concrete sidewalk. From there it travels on asphalt adjacent to Eastown Shopping Center along the abandoned railway corridor, eventually merging with the Creekside Trail.
