Finland to Perkiomen Trail

This area includes the scenic Unami Hills, which is an Audubon Important Bird Area, and contains the Unami, Ridge Valley and Swamp Creeks. Over 2,000 acres of land has been preserved in the Unami Hills as privately owned open space with some public access and municipal open space areas. The goal is to connect the trail through the Unami Hills to the Perkiomen Trail in Green Lane.
