Trail User Permits

To improve your trail experience, please make sure to review our rules and regulations. Keep an eye out for markers that let you know who's permitted where. If you are an equestrian or plan to mountain bike on the trails, it is required you receive a Trail User Permit.

Schuylkill River Trail

Don't miss the 25-mile Schuylkill River Trail, which runs from downtown Philadelphia to Oaks in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. On a sunny weekend day you'll see that many are taking advantage of this opportunity to get some exercise.

Trail Maps

PPR is currently updating our detailed maps of Pennypack Park and Wissahickon Valley Park. 

The Friends of the Wissahickon have a great trail map of Wissahickon Valley Park.

We're Keeping Count

Philadelphia Parks & Recreation uses both the Trafx vehicle counters and Trafx infrared trail counters to gather trail usage data throughout our parks system. Accurate trail usage data helps the department allocate resources correctly and more efficiently. To learn more about the counters used by Parks & Recreation, visit
