West Rockhill Talks PHTN

The West Rockhill Township Spring 2017 Newsletter includes a great article on the progress of the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network in upper Bucks County.

West Rockhill Trail Connections

West Rockhill Township representatives have been active members of the Steering Committee for the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN) since its inception in 2009. Concept plans show the PHTN linking to West Rockhill Township from the north through the Upper Bucks Rail Trail and the Quakertown Borough PHTN route. From the east, the PHTN would link to the Township from Nockamixon State Park. The proposed Liberty Bell Trail would run north-south through West Rockhill Township in the area of Old Bethlehem Pike.  This connection will provide a link to the Circuit Trails system. The PHTN is also proposed to travel west through Montgomery County to link to Green Lane County Park and the Perkiomen Trail.
