through the Black Rock Bird Sanctuary and up to the boat launch at Rt 113.
Take 113 over the river to the Upper Schulykill Valley Park. Drop back down to
the river on River Rd. At the far left end of the parking lot you can re-enter the
trail. 1/8 or so of a mile later you can go left for climbs and singletrack or
straight for a flat side gravel/ dirt trail back to Lock 60 in Mt Claire where you
can cross back over the river to Phoenixville.
