Ride on the Schuylkill River Trail
This adventurous event is for the outdoor enthusiast! Take It Outdoors Adventures will give a safety briefing and provide everyone with a bicycle. We’ll begin our journey with a little over 8 mile bike ride along the Schuylkill River Trail. As we ride, we’ll stop at Parker Ford Tavern for a water break and meet Chester County Ranger, Jay Erb. Who will talk about future plans for the trail and river. Then we’ll pedal up to Fricks Lock Village for lunch and a guided tour from East Coventry Township Historical Commission.
Kayak Along the Schuylkill River
After lunch we will ride up to Towpath Park. The group will receive a safety briefing about paddling from Take It Outdoors. Then the group will get into kayaks to paddle on the Schuylkill River back to Gay St. Trailhead in Spring City.
Registration includes a meal, certified guides, a bike, a kayak and all other gear included. If you have a special request for a boat, please contact Take It Outdoors Adventures directly at the email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 610-656-3969.
