K&T Trail Description

The K&T Trail, also known as the Kensington & Tacony Trail for the former railroad line on which is runs, spans a mile along the Delaware River in Philadelphia. Beginning at the Frankford Arsenal Boat Launch and heading northeast to the beautiful Tacony-Palmyra Bridge, the paved pathway offers up-close views of the river and connects the Wissinoming and Tacony neighborhoods.

A highlight of the route is Lardner’s Point Park on the trail's northern end. Situated along the riverfront, the park was once a derelict brownfield and now features meadows, wetlands, a fishing pier, and picnic tables.

The little-but-mighty trail is part of three larger efforts: Greater Philadelphia’s expansive multi-use trail network known as The Circuit, the nearly 3,000-mile East Coast Greenway, and the North Delaware Riverfront Greenway. Future plans call for extending the K&T Trail southward to Port Richmond.

Parking and Trail Access

Access the trail from Lardner’s Point Park (Levick Street and Milnor Street).

K&T Trail Reviews

Quiet

Cool breeze being next to the river, very few people on the trail, a little short. Hoping the expansions happen eventually.
