Surround yourself with the beautiful imagery of nature entwined with city as you run along the banks of the Schuylkill River on 2,000 feet of boardwalk. This trail is a must-do for runners--the river and Philadelphia's skyline will call you back again and again.

The Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk is part of the Schuylkill River Trail. This well trafficked and spacious--15 ft wide--boardwalk offers views of the River and the Philadelphia skyline and even included four lookout points. Take a midday break to get moving and enjoy the sights of the river, or set out in the evening for a dazzling view of the city lights.
