Where the Plum Creek flows into the "Tully," Union Canal boats crossed the "Plum" by means of a stone and wooden aqueduct. This canal aqueduct can best be described as a wooden bridge filled with water which transported canal barges over the creek. A few of the original red sandstone blocks which supported the wooden aqueduct can still be observed north of this marker.
Schuylkill River Trail
The Schuylkill River Trail is the spine of the Schuylkill River Heritage Area. The trail runs through a landscape that varies from urban and suburban neighborhoods to heavy industrial sites.
The Thun Trail (pronounced tune) is part of the Schuylkill River Trail System. Large railroad bridges, built in 1918, provide impressive views of the Schuylkill River and the surrounding hills.
