Public-Private Partnership Provides New Trailhead Signs at Ringing Rocks

Bucks County, the D&L National Heritage Corridor, Bridgeton Township and the Appalachian Mountain Club recently teamed to design and install directional and interpretive signage at a new trailhead in Bridgeton Township.

 A New D&L Trailhead

The new Ringing Rocks Trailhead is located on the east side of River Road in Bridgeton Township, Bucks County, on land owned by Bucks County. The signs that were produced include a new D&L Trail sign at the trailhead entrance on River Road, a three-panel interpretive kiosk, and a directional blade sign at the trail. The kiosk provides a map that shows the existing and proposed trail network, including a potential crossing to planned hiking trails in Ringing Rocks Park to the west. The kiosk also includes information about the Mid-Atlantic Highlands and the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN). The PHTN is part of an evolving trail system of interconnected local and regional trails that will connect the Delaware River to the Appalachian Trail in south-central Pennsylvania. In the future, this trailhead will be expanded into a County park facility, and will include additional recreation resources and amenities.
