Although currently about a half mile in length, the Royersford Riverfront Trail is a lush, shaded linear park situated between 1st Ave. and the Schuylkill River. Highlights on the paved trail include rain gardens, benches, an ornate plaza near the northwest terminus and an observation pier extending into the river at the southeast end. The trail has helped revive what had been an under-utilized part of town, with additional phases that extended it further southeast to the borough line. Longer range plans envision the trail becoming part of a longer greenway that will follow the northeast bank of the river and compliment the Schuylkill River Trail on the southwest side. Sidewalks on the bridge that carries Bridge Street across the Schuylkill River provide a direct connection to the Schuylkill River Trail and Spring City.
Parking is available in the train station parking lot off Bridge Street and at a couple smaller lots near the intersection between 1st Ave. and Arch Street.
there was an extension added to the trail last year. follow to the end of river road and park in the lighted hadicap parking area. paved surface back to boat dock and rest of the trail
There’s thick bush between the trail and the river, which almost fully blocks the view from most part of the trail. The trail itself is short but well maintained.
Not bad for an urban trail, to one side is buildings, to the other side is the river. The trail and the park it travels through are well maintained. Worth a visit if you are riding the Schuylkill River Trail through Spring City.
