Making its way through the heart of the Perkiomen Valley, the Perkiomen Trail provides 20 miles for visitors to ride, walk, or stroll through some of Montgomery County’s most scenic landscapes. Beginning at the junction of the Schuylkill River Trail in Oaks, the trail uses much of the former rail bed of the Perkiomen Line of the Reading Railroad. Visitors will pass historic former railroad stops such as Arcola, Yerkes, and Salford Station. Trail users will also be following the flow of the Perkiomen Creek as it journeys through the towns of Collegeville and Schwenksville before ending in the Borough of Green Lane to the north. There are many other recreational and educational opportunities along the trail as well, including Lower Perkiomen Valley, Central Perkiomen Valley, and Green Lane Parks. Visitors should also check out the connections with the historic sites of the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove
and Pennypacker Mills. The Perkiomen Trail offers something for everyone, from serene natural landscapes to the many small villages and towns dotted along its route.
