From its junction with the Schuylkill River Trail in Conshohocken, the Cross County Trail heads north through a mix of urban and suburban areas. Currently, 3 miles are completed, from Conshohocken to Germantown Pike in Plymouth Township. Eventually, the completed 17.5-mile trail will connect to Willow Grove and into Bucks County-providing a major north-south route through the heart of Montgomery County. It will also join up with the Wissahickon Green Ribbon Trail, giving users access to Fort Washington State Park, Morris Arboretum, and Fairmount Park in Philadelphia. The trail passes by some large shopping areas, such as Ikea, The Home Depot, and the Metroplex shopping center, just off Chemical Road. It also provides access to several public transit services in Conshohocken and Plymouth Meeting. (Last Updated: 2010-07-13)

The park itself contains very straight forward dirt roads for beginners or rare weekend riders. The park is connected to the Wissahickon trail. The Wissahickon trail has a quick twisty singletrack and is also good for beginners. (Last Updated: 2001-10-29)

Offroad: 6YES
Trails are fire road/dual tracks. Lots of short climbs that are steep on loose gravel. Trails are not long but the park is next to Pennypack park so your ride can be greatly extended by using the Pennypack trail which connects Pennypack park and Lorimer park. Lorimer is one of the few MTB friendly parks left in Montgomery Co. (Last Updated: 1997-11-06)
