Highlands Trail Interpretive Kiosks & Signage

Kiosks

The Appalachian Mountain Club has worked with municipalities, Main Street programs and other groups to develop and install interpretive kiosks throughout the Highlands Trail in Pennsylvania. These kiosks provide history and context as trail users experience the Highlands Trail. Interpretive kiosks are located in the following places along the Highlands Trail:

  • Reigelsville, Bucks County
  • South Bethlehem Greenway, City of Bethlehem, Northampton County
  • Ringing Rocks Traihead, River Road, Bridgeton Township, Bucks County
  • The Park at Fourth, Quakertown Borough, Bucks County
  • Brayton Gardens Trail at Great Blue Heron Park, Richland Township, Bucks County
  • Kumry Road Trailhead for the Unami Creek Trail, Milford Township, Bucks County
  • Perkiomen Trail in Montgomery County
  • Union Meadows Park, Union Township, Berks County

These kiosks provide maps of the local trail system, or information on local history, parks and programs.   

University Signage Projects

AMC also works with local universities to develop interpretive kiosks along the Highlands Trail.  In 2017, AMC partnered with Lehigh University to develop an interpretive sign about the geology found in Water Street Park, on the Highlands Trail. In 2018 a kiosk was installed along the Saucon Rail Trail portion of the Highlands Trail at Landis Mill Road that interprets the unusual geology located there. In 2019, two pedestal signs were installed in Saucon Park in the City of Bethlehem discussing the park’s history and geology. If you would like to discuss a potential kiosk project along the Highlands Trail, please contact Tricia McCloskey, AICP at pmccloskey@outdoors.org.
