The Schuylkill River Greenways map is divided by Trailheads, Trail Towns and Places to Visit.
Gibraltar is a town located in Robeson Township of Berks County. Located in the town is the Allegheny Aqueduct which was built by the Schuylkill Navigation Company in 1824 under the direction of Engineer Ephriam Beech. This “bridge for boats” was needed because the Allegheny Creek could not be incorporated into the canal system. In 1983, the Schuylkill River Greenway Association began efforts to restore the aqueduct and subsequently had the structure listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The restoration efforts were celebrated in February, 1990, and now the Berks County Parks and Recreation Department administers this historic landmark from Berks County’s past.
