Saturday is the Opening Day for Trails!

Opening Trails Day is an annual celebration organized by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy that kicks off the spring trail season. Several Opening Trails Day celebrations will be happening throughout the Circuit Trails network in the Greater Philadelphia region.

The Schuylkill River Trail is a multi-use path that will extend 120 miles from Frackville in Schuylkill County, through Montgomery, Chester and Berks Counties to Philadelphia. It travels through the historically rich region of southeastern Pennsylvania. This Saturday, celebrate “Opening Trails Day,” by hitting the trail with a walk, run or ride.
