  • The perfect trail to exercise or just take a stroll. Tip for visitors: Use Bikeshare to ride along the Schuylkill River to stop by Philadelphia Museum of Art, Waterworks, and The Boathouse Row. There is a Bikeshare Dock #13 at the base of the Rocky Steps/eastside of the museum. The trail is busy during weekends, so be prepare to yell, "ON YOUR LEFT" when passing slower walkers and joggers. If you get thirsty, stop by the Cosmic Cafe next to the Lloyd Hall to grab water or a quick bite to eat and stretch out at the public seating and dining area. Also, there are relatively clean public restrooms next to the Lloyd Hall accessible directly from outside throughout the year. Download the iOS app, b-cycle now by TalentRiot and select Philadelphia to locate Philly Bikeshare and availability of bikes around center city.
