The Schuylkill River Trail is a multi-use trail under construction for expansion along the banks of the Schuylkill River in southeastern Pennsylvania. Large stretches of the trail are rail trails. When complete, the trail is planned to run from the river's headwaters in Schuylkill County to Fort Mifflin in Philadelphia, a distance of about 140 miles. On many maps and street atlases, and on some of the trail's signage, the segment between Philadelphia and Valley Forge is still identified by the older name Philadelphia-Valley Forge Trail.
