The Manayunk Bridge Trail is mostly an urban hike, but it has great views of the Schuylkill River and a bird’s-eye view of the Schuylkill Expressway. It’s better to be walking above I-76 than stuck in traffic below. The bridge is iconic, and if you’ve driven on I-76, you’ve probably passed underneath it. The bridge also serves as a major connecting trail in the Circuit Trails, which is a hiker/walker/biker’s dream come true: a proposed 750-mile network of trails all in the Greater Philadelphia area. As of 2017, more than 300 miles of the network have been built, with more on the way.
