Schuylkill River Trail - Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk Description

Although less than a half-mile long, the Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk is an incredible experience; built 50 feet from shore, you're walking directly over the Schuylkill River in the vibrant heart of Philadelphia. Along the way, four lookouts with benches allow you to stop and take in the expansive views of both the river and the city's skyline.

The boardwalk is part of the Schuylkill River Trail and, on its northern end, it connects with a 27-mile segment it that winds along the river to the Valley Forge/Phoenixville area. Information on other Schuylkill River Trail segments can be found here: Thun Trail, Bartram TrailSchuylkill River Trail - Northern Berks CountySchuylkill Banks Boardwalk, and Phoenixville to Pottstown.

The promenade is part of the Circuit, a developing 750-mile trail network in Philadelphia and the surrounding region, as well as the vast East Coast Greenway, a multi-use trail system that will one day stretch from Maine to Florida.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available along S. 25th Street.

Schuylkill River Trail - Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk Reviews

I'm on this section of the SRT 4-5 times a week and always love it. Normally in the morning for a run, or on weekends on my bike. More riverwalks like this could be added to the SRT. It's a gem and huge bonus to the city recreation scene.

Just the ideas in philly to promote bicycle transportation. Loved this along with the portion from manayunk to here.
