Schuylkill Banks is an amazing new addition to Philadelphia’s open space. This trail is part of the Schuylkill River Trail, a proposed 130-mile-long trail along the Schuylkill River. The views are amazing, and you actually feel like you are on top of the river. As the trail weaves its way toward the river, you’ll pass behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art and in front of the Fairmount Waterworks. When you see Fairmount Waterworks, you’ll cross the road and pick up the trail on your left. This is a heavily trafficked trail, so it’s best to stay to the right at all times and keep any dogs on a short leash.
