The Tinicum Township trail begins on the southwest corner of the intersection of Wannamaker Ave. and Route 291. The asphalt multi-use trail extends southwest, paralleling Route 291 for a little over half a mile to the bridge over Darby Creek.
Despite its short length, the Tinicum Township Trail is a crucial segment of a much larger system of multi-use trails, the East Coast Greenway, which stretches from downeast Maine to Key West, FL. It is also part of the Circuit, the network of multi-use trails envisioned to crisscross the Philly metropolitan area. Extensions north to the John Heinz Refuge Trail and southwest to Chester via the soon to be built Industrial Heritage Trail are planned for the near future.
The trail currently connects several hotels and businesses along the Route 291 corridor and is lit for night use. Trail users can also take in some scenic vistas of the Delaware River and a RR drawbridge from the Darby Creek bridge.
Parking is available off the southeast corner of the Wannamaker Ave. and Industrial Highway intersection, as well as at several nearby businesses
