Barrel Run Trail

Milford Township has developed an impressive trail system that is integrated with their park system and connected to various subdivisions. Barrel Run Trail connects Trumbauersville Elementary School to communities in the center of the township. A 2/10 of a mile section of trail between Creamery Road and Allentown Road is still in the planning stage. The township is planning to extend another branch of the Barrel Run Trail along the utility corridor to Trumbauersville Road.
