Exploring the Schuylkill River Trail Part 2



Last week, I had my first Schuylkill River Trail post, and this week is the second part! I know I’ll be going back once spring flowers are in bloom, so keep an eye out for that! So as I said in my first post, there are actually quite a few open, green spaces in Philadelphia, and the Schuylkill River Trail is one of my favorites. There’s a lot of space, and it’s a very popular place for runners and dog walkers. It’ll be even nicer when it warms up in the spring!
