The Upper Bucks Rail Trail
The Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network will coalign on this planned rail trail in northern Bucks County. This approximately 3.0 mile section of unused rail corridor is currently in the design and engineering phase and is expected to be open by the end of 2018. The Bucks County Commissioners have committed funding to design and build the trail, with the Townships of Springfield and Richland taking responsibility for maintenance. The project will connect to the six-mile Saucon Rail Trail at the Lehigh County line. The trail will follow the rail right-of-way from the Lehigh County line at Coopersburg and head south through Springfield Township to Veterans Park in Richland Township. Development of the Upper Bucks Rail Trail will also allow for the connection to existing trails and sidewalks in Richland Township and the Borough of Quakertown that make up the PHTN.
