The Schuylkill River Greenways map is divided by Trailheads, Trail Towns and Places to Visit.
Lock 60 of the Schuylkill Canal is one of only two sections of the Schuylkill Navigation System that are still watered, and the only operating lock remaining on the Schuylkill River. The Canal provides great canoe and kayaking opportunities, and you can learn about canal history by visiting the Locktender’s House.
Multiple trail connections, including the Schuylkill River Trail, are accessible from the park. Paddling the five-mile loop water trail is supported by two sets of access points. A demonstration of the opening of the lock is held on the third Sunday of every month at 3 p.m.
