Heritage Trails And Byways

Schuylkill River Trail and Connections
There are currently over 60 miles of finished trail, including a 26 mile stretch from the City of Philadelphia through Montgomery County to Phoenixville in Chester County. A shorter Chester County segment of about six miles runs from just outside Phoenixville in Cromby to Parkerford. The trail breaks off in Parkerford and picks up again in Pottstown where it continues for about 20 miles to Reading.

Horseshoe Trail
The Horse-Shoe Trail Conservancy is a 100% volunteer-run organization with the mission to maintain and protect all 148 miles of the H-ST from Valley Forge, PA to its junction with the Appalachian Trail, north of Harrisburg.

Neversink Trail
Neversink Mountain is hugged on the south by the Schuylkill River and to the north by the City of Reading. This provides breathtaking vistas for your enjoyment, most popular are the City Overlook and the Witches Hat (McIlvain Pavilion).
