The Highlands Trail Network

Connecting Communities and Rivers

As it makes its way through the 13-county Pennsylvania Highlands Region, the Highlands Trail connects three rivers: the Delaware, the Schuylkill and the Susquehanna. Along its 300-mile route, the Highlands Trail connects the towns of Easton, Bethlehem, Quakertown, Green Lane, Phoenixville, and Pottstown as it heads west into amore rural landscape. The Highlands Trail connects to six state parks: Delaware Canal, Nockamixon, French Creek, Gifford Pinchot, Pine Grove Furnace, and Caledonia State Parks, as well as the 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.
