Photo Essay of the Perkiomen Trail is now Online

It was a spectacular day for a grand opening in Green Lane Park. A large crowd turned out and the media was there to report it.

Without SEPTA coming anywhere close to the start point, getting to the trail was nearly as adventurous as riding the trail itself. Here was my itinerary
7:59 Leave House on bike
8:11 R7 Train from Holmesburg Jct to North Philadelphia
8:25 Bike North Philadelphia to North Broad St Station
8:35 R5 Train to Lansdale
9:10 Taxi Lansdale to Green Lane Park ($33 plus tip)
Opening Ceremony 10 am
12:30 - 2:57 Leisurely ride on trail
2:57 - Arrive at Trappe Rd and 29 parking lot Rahns
3:00 - SEPTA bus 91 to Norristown Transportation Center
3:52 - SEPTA R6 to Market East Station
4:45 - Market Frankford EL to Frankford Transportation Center
5:25 - SEPTA bus 20 to Holme and Convent NE Philly
