The Schuylkill River Trail
Welcome to the Schuylkill River Trail, a multi-use trail in Southeastern Pennsylvania with a projected length of almost 130 miles when complete. There are currently over 60 miles of finished trail, including a 26-mile stretch from the City of Philadelphia through Montgomery County to Phoenixville in Chester County. A shorter Chester County segment of about six miles runs from just outside Phoenixville in Cromby to Parkerford. The trail breaks off in Parkerford and picks up again in Pottstown where it continues for about 20 miles to Reading. While the Reading to Hamburg section has not yet been built, cyclists can follow a signed on-road route for about 20 miles to get from Reading to Hamburg. In Hamburg, trail users can access a scenic seven-mile stretch to Auburn in Schuylkill County. The trail is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, exercise or commute.
