The Schuylkill River Greenways map is divided by Trailheads, Trail Towns and Places to Visit.
The Borough of Hamburg became a boom town after the construction of the Schuylkill Canal in 1820, and today it retains its Pennsylvania Dutch character and old world charm. The Schuylkill River Trail can be accessed from four different locations: State Street Trailhead, Hamburg’s Community Park, Kernsville Dam Recreation Area and the Reading Railroad Heritage Museum. Trail visitors can walk or bike to local eateries, connecting trails, parks and the restored Strand Movie Theater. Learn more: http://www.hamburgpa.org/
