PA Highlands Trail Signage Installation Underway in Quakertown

PA Highlands Trails signage marking the PHTN route through Quakertown is being installed in the Borough. 

Quakertown Borough Council adopted the official PHTN route through the Borough back in 2016. The Appalachian Mountain Club and its consultant, Campbell Thomas & Company, prepared the signage plan and AMC purchased the signs in the fall of 2017. The signs guide trail users along the PHTN path on the sidewalks of Quakertown, and alert motorists to the presence of bicycles along the on-road bike route.

The PHTN Route

From the north, continuing from the existing trail in Richland Township, the PHTN in the Borough begins on East Mill Street near the Park at Fourth and turns south onto Fourth Street. At West Broad Street, the trail turns right and heads west for a half-block to Fifth Street, where the trail turns left and heads south. When the PHTN reaches Park Avenue, the trail turns right and heads west, crossing Route 309. The Borough is seeking grant funding to improve this intersection for pedestrians and bicyclists. After crossing Route 309, the trail continues along Park Avenue, turning south until it meets Mill Road. A small gap exists between Mill Road and the Hunter’s Crossing Trail in Richland Township. The signs will be located along the route and include the Highlands Trail marker, as shown below.
