After yesterday's 4+ inches of rain, parts of the Schuylkill River Trail are barely passible due to flood debris. It wasn't river water that did the damage, but runoff from the steep slopes adjacent. I pedalled in from Norristown this morning and found three spots where the trail is almost blocked:
- South of Spring Mill in Whitemarsh Township, Montgomery County. Mud and stones up to a foot deep.
- North of Port Royal Avenue in the City of Philadephia. Mud and stones up to two feet deep. Photo:
- Between Manayunk and Flat Rock Dam in the City of Philadelphia. Fist-size stones litter one stretch of the trail.
Hopefully Montgomery County and Fairmount Park will clear the trails soon.
