Schuylkill River West Trail Description

The Schuylkill River West Trail will one day span 15.5 miles beginning in downtown Philadelphia and heading northwest through Lower Merion Township, West Conshohocken, Bridgeport, and Upper Merion Township. Currently, the paved pathway covers just over 2 miles across Upper Merion Township, connecting residents and visitors with Valley Forge National Historical Park, Heuser Park, and Bob Case Park.

On its west end, the paved pathway begins just outside of Valley Forge National Historical Park, famed for its Revolutionary War era structures, and continues east loosely paralleling the southern shoreline of the Schuylkill River. On the north side of the river lies the Schuylkill River Trail, which offers more than 75 miles of pathway as it makes its way down to Philadelphia.

Along its journey, the Schuylkill River West Trail offers a well-canopied route, a footbridge over Trout Creek, and access to Heuser Park, which offers athletic fields and a playground. The trail ends in Bob Case Park.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in Heuser Park (694 W. Beidler Rd., King of Prussia) and Bob Case Park (295 Abrams Mill Rd.).
