The Tollgate Landing Trail Gap

The proposed segment of the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network is a short gap within open space privately owned by the Tollgate Landing Homeowners Association (HOA) in the Quakertown area of Bucks County. Approval to develop this trail section is needed by the HOA, and AMC and its consultant, Campbell Thomas & Company (CTC), have been working with the HOA to develop a trail feasibility study in 2018. Closing this gap would create a through connection for the Hunter’s Crossing-Brayton Garden Trails in Richland Township and would faciliate connection to the Barrel Run Trail in Milford Township. The Tollgate Landing community straddles the two townships.

A draft conceptual alignment for the trail developed for the feasibility study is shown below (zoom your screen).






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