Segment #3 Perkiomen Trail - Schuylkill River Trail
The Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (noPHTN) is planned to co-align with the Perkiomen Trail for approximately 17.6 miles where it will meet the Schuylkill River Trail. From the north, the Perkiomen Trail travels through Green Lane, Schwenksville, and Collegeville. The PHTN follows the Schuylkill River Trail for roughly 25.1 miles to the partially developed Hopewell Big Woods Trail (Segment 4). The PHTN section of the Schuylkill River Trail travels through Mont Clare, Phoenixville, Pottstown, to just south of Birdsborough. Some trail gaps remain to be completed. 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.
