Welcome to the Schuylkill River Trail, a multi-use trail in Southeastern Pennsylvania with a projected length of almost 130 miles when totally completed. Parts of the trail are complete from the City of Philadelphia through Montgomery County to Phoenixville in Chester County, Pottstown-Montgomery County to Reading in Berks County and a section from Hamburg in Berks County to Auburn, Schuylkill County. The trail is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, exercise or commute. This site provides maps and information to help you access the trail and get the most from your visit.
This website is managed by the Schuylkill River Heritage Area. Please visit our official site at www.schuylkillriver.org to learn more. Sign up for our email list to receive information and updates about the Schuylkill River Trail and our other projects and programs.
Do you use the trail? Consider making a donation to the Schuylkill River Heritage Area. We have taken the lead in creating a unified sign system, printing and distributing trail maps, and improving trail heads. We also operate and maintain 28 miles of the Schuylkill River Trail in Berks and Schuylkill Counties and are always working to expand and improve the trail in those areas. Learn more
