Segment #3 Perkiomen Trail - Schuylkill River Trail

The Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN) is envisioned to co-align with the Perkiomen Trail for approximately 17.6 miles where it will meet the Schuylkill River Trail, following it for approximately 25.1 miles to the partially developed Hopewell Big Woods Trail (Segment 4). The Perkiomen Trail follows the former Reading Railroad line, while the Schuylkill River Trail follows a combination of rail corridors and some stretches of road alignment.
