Last Friday, Earth Day, Chester County Parks and Preservation hosted the official ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of Chester County’s final section of the Schuylkill River Trail. Chester County Commissioners joined DCNR, PennDOT, our Executive Director, Sarah Clark Stuart and many others to comment on the competition of this priority gap from Parker Ford to the new Route 422 Bridge crossing at the border of Montgomery County.
Now that this segment is officially opened, trail users can travel over 30 miles from Philadelphia to Pottstown in Montgomery County! According to the Schuylkill River Greenways, there are currently 75 completed miles of the Schuylkill River Trail (See the map below).
