PHTN Interpretive Kiosks

The Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) has worked with municipalities, Main Street programs and other groups to develop and install interpretive kiosks throughout the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN). These kiosks provide history and context as you experience the PHTN. Interpretive kiosks are currently located at the beginning of the PHTN in Reigelsville, Quakertown Borough, at the trail head for the Unami Creek Trail on Kumry Road in Milford Township, Bucks County, and at a trail head for the Perkiomen Trail in Montgomery County. These kiosks can provide maps of the local trail system, or information on local history, parks and programs.   

Three new kiosk are coming soon to the PHTN. One will be installed along the South Bethlehem Greenway, one will be located at the trail head for Brayton Garden Trail in Richland Township, and one will located on the Schuylkill River Trail at Union Meadows Park, Union Township, Berks County.

AMC also works with local universities to develop interpretive kiosk along the PHTN.  Last year, AMC partnered with Lehigh University to develop a kiosk about the geology found in Water Street Park, on the PHTN. If you would like to discuss a potential kiosk project along the PHTN, please contact Tricia McCloskey, AICP at pmccloskey@outdoors.org.
