The Expanding SRT
Welcome to the Schuylkill River Trail, a multi-use trail in Southeastern Pennsylvania with a projected length of 120 miles. There are currently about 75 miles complete in sections, including a 30-plus mile stretch from Philadelphia to Parkerford. The trail breaks off in Parkerford and picks up again in Pottstown where it continues for about 20 miles to Reading. From there, cyclists can follow a 20-mile signed on-road route just shy of Hamburg. In Hamburg, trail users can access a scenic seven-mile stretch to Auburn in Schuylkill County. The trail is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, exercise or commute.
