The Park at Fourth Park to Hunter's Crossing Trail

This segment of the PHTN is envisioned as a trail route between Quakertown Borough’s park complex, which includes ball fields, an amphitheater, swimming pool and a branch of the Bucks County Library. The segment follows the Borough sidewalk system and provides access to Quakertown’s shops, restaurants and historic sites. This trail section connects to the planned Upper Bucks Rail Trail with the trail system west of Rt. 309 in Richland and Milford Townships. 

For more information on planning for this section and adjacent areas refer to the Quakertown Region Master Trail Plan. (PDF 13.8 mb)
