Trail Reporter.Com - Reporting Incidents on the Schuylkill River Trail

www.trailReporter.com is now online and ready to collect incident reports on the Schuylkill River Trail.



With less than 20 postings entered to date I was happy to see that it being is used to report more than violence. Graffiti and trail conditions were also noted and this information is just as useful. One posting I liked was "Two Girls Smiled and Wave" right at the notorious basketball courts east of Haws Avenue. We could use more good news like that.

trailreporter.com link above is inaccurate, it needs www.

Fixed, Thanks for the heads up.

It would be great if incidents could be sorted - most recent first. There doesn't seem to be any logic to the display order. This would be helpful as more incidents are reported.

The display order is a little frustrating, as far as I can figure the order is created by where it happened on the trail.

Aug. 6. Any incident that occurs in Montgomery County on the SRT should also be reported on the County Park's website. http://trails.montcopa.org/trails/cwp/view,a,1481,q,71492.asp
