Trail Planning Segments and Sections

For the purposes of trail planning over a large landscape like the Pennsylvania Highlands, eight trail segments have been defined by the co-alignment of the Highlands Trail with existing major trails such as the Perkiomen Trail or HorseShoe Trail, as well as by significant gaps between individual trail sections. The eight planning segments can be viewed by clicking on the Segment Photos that appear below, or by hovering over the Interactive Trail Map above to locate each Trail Segment. Click on “Read More” when the pop-up information box appears.

Each Planning Segment contains one or more Trail Planning Section pages. To view each Section Page go to a particular Map Segment, then zoom in on the map and move your cursor over the trail for the Section Page information box to appear. The section pages contain more detailed information such as trail status, mileage, surface type, and the trail ownership/management entity.
