Segment #2 (Finland to Perkiomen Trail)

Segment #2 of the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN) is located in the Unami Hills area of northern Montgomery County. This wooded region is a National Audubon Society “Important Bird Area.” The Unami Hills is a rugged landscape of diabase boulders and over 2,000 acres of mostly preserved land. A Unami Hills Trail Concept Plan was developed to determine PHTN routes through the area, and AMC is working with property owners to plan and develop the PHTN in this area. Trail connections are planned between Milford Township’s trails in Bucks County and the Perkiomen Trail in Montgomery County. A key trail section in Musser Scout Reservation in Marlborough Township will traverse easements held by Natural Lands and Montgomery County, and a Trail Feasiblity Study was completed for this area in 2019. The reservation is owned by the Boy Scouts of America, Cradle of Liberty Council. AMC is also working with the Borough of Green Lane to establish a route through town that connects to the existing Perkiomen Trail access point on Route 29/Gravel Pike.
