Segment #2 (Finland to Perkiomen Trail)

This Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN) planning segment encompasses the region known as the Unami Hills.  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 routes for the PHTN through the Unami Hills, with planned connections between the Milford Township trail system (Bucks County) and the Perkiomen Trail (Montgomery County).
