Segment #2 (Finland to Perkiomen Trail)

Segment #2 of the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN) falls within the Unami Hills of Montgomery County. The region is a National Audubon Society “Important Bird Area.” The Unami Hills is rugged landscape of diabase boulders and over 2,000 acres of preserved land. A Unami Hills Trail Concept Plan was developed to determine PHTN routes through the 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 may traverse easements held by Natural Lands and Montgomery County. The reservation is owned by the Boy Scouts of America, Cradle of Liberty Council.
