Overview

The Boxer trail is a short 3.8 mile trail that parallels the Schuylkill river path in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park. It gets its name from the boxer Joe Frazier who would frequent the trail. The trail contours a hillside and offers unique views of the paved path and river below.

Trail Description

The out-and-back trail offers steep, rolling hills on a gravel reinforced tread through a densely wooded section of Fairmount Park. Although it may not be long enough to warrant a trip of its own it is a great link-up when combined with other trails nearby.
