Segment #3 Perkiomen Trail - Schuylkill River Trail

 

Perkiomen Trail

The Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN) is planned to co-align with the Perkiomen Trail for approximately 17.6 miles where it will meet the Schuylkill River Trail near Oaks. From the north, the Perkiomen Trail travels through Green Lane, Schwenksville, and Collegeville in Montgomery County. The PHTN is planned to connect to the Perkiomen Trail in Green Lane, and in the future points in Upper Salford Township.

Schuylkill River Trail

The PHTN follows the Schuylkill River Trail in Montgomery, Chester, and Berks Counties for roughly 25.1 miles to the partially developed Hopewell Big Woods Trail in Union Township, Berks County (Segment 4). The PHTN section of the Schuylkill River Trail travels through the Highlands Hubs of Mont Clare, Phoenixville, Pottstown, to just south of Birdsboro. Some trail gaps remain and will be developed. 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.
