Added by The Outbound Collective

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.

During the summer, they also do tons of free activities on the river bank. Free Yoga, pop-up beer gardens, free movie screenings.

Great way to cycle in the city and get out to out in the wilderness at the same time.
