This trail hugs the north side Schuylkill River. A nice flat course with beautiful foliage on one side and the river on the other. Trains on the other side of the river make their presence known every half hour or so. This hike is a "there and back" and will be approximately 7 miles in length. Allow 2-3 hours to hike the trail. This is a scenic and easy hike with no hills. The trail, mostly gravel, always has the river in sight. You may want to bring water, snacks, camera . . .
