Segment #2 (Finland to Perkiomen Trail)

Segment #2 of the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN) encompasses the region known as the Unami Hills area of Montgomery County. The region is a National Audubon Society designated “Important Bird Area” that features a rugged landscape of diabase boulders and over 2,000 acres of preserved land. A Trail Concept Plan has been developed to determine potential alternative PHTN routes through the Unami Hills, with planned connections between the Milford Township trail system (Bucks County) and the Perkiomen Trail (Montgomery County). A key section of the trail may traverse easements held by Natural Lands in lands owned by the Boy Scouts of America, Cradle of Liberty Council, in its Musser Scout Camp.
