What is the Schuylkill River Loop Trail?
This survey is an URGENT opportunity for you to help complete the Schuylkill River Loop trail in Phoenixville!
The Green Team has started a campaign to urge the County to complete the 5.5 mile Schuylkill River Loop trail by extending the trail along French Creek thru the Canal Railroad Underpass. This will connect Phoenixville to the riverfront connecting the existing Chester County river trail over the spillway and up river to the Black Rock Dam and Black Rock Bird Sanctuary. When completed the loop trail will allow trail users to cross the river on the Rt 29 Bridge, up the MontCo Upper Schuylkill River Trail, cross over the RT 113 Bridge and down the Chesco river trail to the French Creek and downtown Phoenixville.
Please take the survey and add your voice on Question 16. Ask the County to “Extend the trail along French Creek thru the Canal Railroad Underpass and connect Phoenixville to the riverfront, over the Spillway and up to the Black Rock Dam and Bird Sanctuary“

The Phoenixville Greenway
The Phoenixville Greenway is an ambitious plan started in 1986 to create a ten (10) miles of linear park along the Schuylkill River and French Creek in Phoenixville. This effort is part of the larger river preservation project spearheaded by the Schuylkill River Greenway Association (SRGA) to restore and preserve the river as a sustainable watershed. The Schuylkill River Trail (SRT) Schuylkill River Trail (SRT) is the spline of the Phoenixville Greenway providing the connection to a regional trail system connecting Pottsville to Philadelphia and the greater trail system, The Circuit. Phoenixville will soon be connected to the Chester Valley Trail by way of the conversion of the Devault Line in a rails to trails project being led by Charlestown Township. See Map Trail
