Where is the Schuylkill Canal?

Information from Montgomery County on the Towpath Restoration 

Project


.  

Due to the "Bank Stabilization Project"
We are asking people to 
STAY OFF 
the section of the canal 
FROM ROUTE 29 to the 
END of LONGFORD RD.

Montgomery County and its contractor have started seeding and fertilizing (the green stuff) the tow path and its bank. Foot and bicycle traffic at this time will inhibit the regrowth of vegetation needed to stabilize 
the canal bank and trail. The section from Route 29 to the Locktenders house is OPEN.

If you have not hiked the Neal Thorpe Trail now is a great time to discover it (cross the bridge over the lock, turn left and than a right on to the trail).
