The Schuylkill River Greenways National Heritage Area in Pennsylvania follows the 128-mile course of the Schuylkill River and its tributaries, from Schuylkill County to Philadelphia. With the 128-mile Schuylkill River as its spine, the Schuylkill River Greenways National Heritage Area is alive with a remarkable diversity of historic, recreational, and cultural attractions.
Along the “Revolutionary River,” you can shadow the birth of the United States, from the cobblestone streets and fabled landmarks of old Philadelphia to the huts and hollows of Valley Forge. Upstream you’ll find a wealth of historic places, quaint river towns, abundant parks, and access points to the river and trails, and year-round festivals and activities. There’s always something new to discover.
As a National Heritage Area, Schuylkill River Greenways NHA is a cooperative partnership managed by the nonprofit Schuylkill River Greenway Association. For information to help you plan your visit to this incredible region, please visit the official Schuylkill River Greenways NHA website.
