Brayton Garden and Hunter's Crossing Trail System

The Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN) runs through publicly owned open space in Richland Township, Bucks County. Beginning in the Hunter’s Crossing subdivision on Mill Road, this paved multi-use trail runs south and terminates at Trumbauersville Road. A crosswalk is provided on Trumbauersville Road, and the Brayton Garden Trail continues on the south side of the road.  Also a paved multi-use trail, this trail runs for about a mile and ends at Dovecote Drive. A trailhead is under development on Dovecote Drive. A municipal park is planned for development in 2017 at the terminus of the trail. In order to connect to the nearby Barrel Run Trail, a connection through the Tollgate Landing subdivision is needed.
