Finland to Perkiomen Trail

This planned trail section of the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN) is a gap between the Milford Township Trail System at Finland and the 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.

A Feasibility Study is of alternative trail routes has been prepared and can be viewed here.
