The community of East Falls has begun a program of re-development as a river community with places for trail users to stop and relax. It is also the location of the East Falls Glassworks where visitors can view the art of glassblowing or take classes.
Parking is located at the parking lot under the Twin Bridges (4100 Ridge Ave.), a 24 hour, 50 space lot with handicapped parking and zip cars that overlooks the Schuylkill River. It is a step away from local eateries, The Trolley Car Cafe and InRiva. There is a small, free parking area on the trail, just off Kelly Drive, upriver of the Falls Bridge.
This trailhead is managed by East Falls Development Corporation.
