Complete the Schuylkill River Trail

Complete the Trail

On the Schuylkill, the Complete the Schuylkill River Trail coalition has launched their new website: The site includes information about trail segments, the online petition to complete the Schuylkill River Trail & East Coast Greenway, and other important information about the campaign. 

The Schuylkill River Trail is an extremely popular and heavily used recreational asset and commuter route. It also has the potential to be much more. To be complete, the trail has critical gaps that need to be filled. There are nine trail projects that, if constructed, would complete Philadelphia’s Schuylkill River Trail from Delaware County to Montgomery County.

The organizations from the non-profit, development corporation and public sectors working together to articulate the vision for a completed and connected Schuylkill River Trail in the Greater Philadelphia Region include: Schuylkill River Park Alliance, Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, Schuylkill River Development Corporation, Schuylkill Project, Manayunk Development Corporation, East Falls Development Corporation, Roxborough Development Corporation, Lower Merion Township, Pennsylvania Environmental Council, Bartram’s Garden, Friends of Ivy Ridge Trail, the Schuylkill River Heritage Area and Van Stone Foundation.
