The Schuylkill River Trail between Mont Clare and Pottstown is the responsibility of the Borough of Phoenixville and Chester and Montgomery Counties. The section from Cromby to Parker Ford (about 100′ south of Linfield Road) is now complete and open to trail users. The surface is mostly crushed stone, although selected areas have been paved, including the Cromby trailhead, Spring City at Bridge Street, and the iron bridge near the Bard complex.
Heading east, a new section of trail opened in April 2015 from Cromby through Phoenixville, connecting with the trail in Mont Clare. Heading west, the final segment (Parkerford to Route 422 bridge, into Pottstown) has not yet been constructed. For current information about the trail’s status visit Chester County’s trail website – Chester County Schuylkill River Trail.

TRAIL ALERT: The Schuylkill River Trail in Phoenixville is closed between Main and Ashland Streets to accommodate Phoenix Village’s heavy construction equipment. The signed detour, to be in place through next year, directs trail users to follow Bridge Street to the recently opened trail on the west side of Main Street in front of the Phoenixville Heritage Center.
