Montgomery-County-Trail

Philadelphia City Line to Phoenixville

The Schuylkill River Trail between Philadelphia City Line and Phoenixville is owned and managed by Montgomery County who, apart from a short on-road section between Port Providence and Mont Clare, has provided users with an off-road trail with a wide, paved surface. This section of trail can be used to access other county trails such as the Perkiomen Trail, Audubon Loop at Oaks and the Cross County Trail at Conshohocken. The trail runs beside the SEPTA stations at Spring Mill, Norristown and Conshohocken; and provides access to the west side of Valley Forge National Historic Park at Betzwood. In Valley Forge, trail users cross the Schuylkill River via the new Sullivan’s Bridge–a 14-foot wide, 602-foot long bike/pedestrian bridge–to access the main park with its extensive trail system and historic sites. From Port Providence to Mont Clare there is one of the last watered sections of the Schuylkill Canal, and a restored lock tender’s house and lock.
