PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – You can get a free copy of the Schuylkill River Trail tomorrow on National Trails Day.
The colorful map available at Valley Forge National Historical Park shows the entire trail, the miles that have been completed and those that are proposed.
Kurt Zwikl, executive director of the Schuylkill River Heritage Area says when it’s done, you’ll be able to enjoy 130-miles, including the sections in Philadelphia.
“There are trail heads in Center City, there’s one in East Falls, there’s one in Manayunk. It runs right along Kelly Drive, I’m sure people have seen many people running and biking in that area. It runs along Boathouse Row — those would be the key Philadelphia locations.”
Currently you can enjoy the trail from Philadelphia through Phoenixville. He says land rights and money are needed to finish the project. For more information on the trail, click here.
