Riverview Trail Reviews

I did this trail the other day and it is a very nice but short trail. There a number of historical markers and this would be a great place to take a child and give them a history lesson. The trail runs between the Delaware river and I495. You have a view of Down town Philadelphia and the Commodore Berry Bridge to the north and the Delaware Memorial Bridge to the south. This is paved trail and is fairly flat. There are picnic tables, clean restrooms and shelters for a greet picnic. It is only about a half mile as the Crow fly,s to the Northern Delaware Trail but there is no way to cross I495 and it is not a great bike rout from the park to the N.D.G.W.
