Perkasie Receives $50K for Liberty Bell Trail Study

Recently, DCNR announced that the Borough of Perkasie will receive a $50,000 grant to prepare a trail study for the Liberty Bell Trail in Perkasie, Sellersville, East Rockhill Township, West Rockhill Township, Richland Township and Quakertown Borough.

Development of the Liberty Bell Trail in this area will provide links to the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network trunk route through Quakertown and Richland Townships and provide a connection to a proposed PHTN route from Nockamixon State Park through East and West Rockhill Townships. The proposed link to Nockamixon State Park is planned to be a hiking trail/footpath.  The Liberty Bell Feasibility Study from East Norriton Township to Quakertown was prepared in 2005.
