Alongside Boston’s Minuteman Commuter Bikeway and New York City’s Manhattan Waterfront Gateway, Philadelphia’s urban trail was one of three sets named that is located on the east coast.

The trail is used by commuters coming in and out of the city from Montgomery County and recreational cyclists alike.
