Trail Projects, Plans & Studies

Trees and debris are moved to clear the path for a Schuylkill River Trail section being built in Schuylkill County.

Schuylkill River Greenways and our partners have several ongoing projects that will continue the extension of the Schuylkill River Trail. There are currently 75 miles of the trail completed and when finished it will run 120 miles from Frackville in Schuylkill County to Philadelphia.

Schuylkill River Trail Projects

Enormous efforts have been made to connect trail sections and close gaps. Below is a list of current projects.

Montgomery County 422 Connector

Update as of January, 2024: The new Chester County Schuylkill River Trail section is open between Linfield Road and Fricks Lock Village (a two-mile stretch). The remaining two miles from Fricks Lock to Route 422 is nearly complete but has a few final finishing touches. The connection over the river into Pottstown is being done by Montgomery County and will be complete sometime in late 2024

Montgomery County SRT Extension from Route 422 to Industrial Highway

The extension of the Schuylkill River Trail in Montgomery County includes a 0.95 mile segment between Industrial Highway and the U.S. 422 Bridge in Pottstown. Construction is expected to be complete by late 2024. 



Expanding the SRT in St. Clair of Schuylkill County

In November 2020, the Appalachian Conservation Corps installed fencing for a section of the Schuylkill River Trail being built in St. Clair of Schuylkill County. In 2018, the Great Appalachian Valley Conservation Corps (GAVCC) cut down trees and cleaned debris to make room for a path. After this first phase was completed, the next phase included installing posts for fencing. The completed section will be a paved mile stretch.
