The Highlands Trail Network
Connecting Communities and Rivers
As it makes its way though the 13-county Pennsylvania Highlands Region, the Highlands Trail connects three rivers: the Delaware, the Schuylkill and the Susquehanna Rivers. Between these rivers, the Highlands Trail follows or crosses many creeks, including the Perkiomen and the Conewago. The Highlands Trail connects to six state parks: Delaware Canal, Nockamixon, French Creek, Gifford Pinchot, Pine Grove Furnace, and Caledonia State Parks, and one national park, Valley Forge National Historical Park. The Highlands Trail also connects to or passes close by several county parks, including Ringing Rocks Park, Green Lane Park, Central and Lower Perkiomen Valley Parks, and Chickies Rock County Park. The Highlands Trail route also connects to many municipal parks and recreation areas as well.
