Schuylkill River Trail Wins Best Urban Trail

Schuylkill-Banks-Boardwalk_54_990x660USA TODAY 10Best teamed up with a panel of travel and outdoor recreation experts to nominate 20 trails for the title of Best Urban Trail. Readers voted for four weeks, and the winner is the Schuylkill River Trail!

The multi-use trail winds through 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 Philadelphia to Phoenixville. A shorter Chester County segment of about six miles runs from just outside Phoenixville in Cromby to Parkerford.

The Schuylkill River Trail was built, and is managed, by different organizations and municipalities including Valley Forge National Historical Park, Chester County, and the Schuylkill River Heritage Area.

The Schuylkill River Trail is an important piece of Chester County’s open space, and plays a big role in Goal #1 of the VISTA 2025 strategic plan: to maintain and enhance “quality of place” throughout the County.
