The New Connector Trail is OPEN!

The Board of Supervisors of Upper Salford Township is happy to report that the Upper Salford Township Connector Trail named the Park to Perkiomen (P2P) is now open. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony will be scheduled later this year. The new $1.15 million dollar trail is beautiful and runs from Upper Salford Park to the Spring Mountain Ski Area (Upper Salford Township owns the ground under the ski slopes) and then connects to the Perkiomen Trail at the bridge on Spring Mount Road. In addition, in an agreement with the Schirk/Hutt family for a conservation easement on 40-acres of woodlands which have been permanently preserved along the new P2P trail. Upper Salford Township would like to thank all the contractors that worked on this trail and also thank the folks that gave the township close to $1 Million dollars of GRANTS to build this trail and preserve the woods, including Montgomery County, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Pennsylvania Department of Economic Development, Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission plus 2 PECO grants. The township has some minor things to complete including signs recognizing our grantors and some other directional signage. Upper Salford Township is proud to provide this recreational opportunity for all, not only township residents but regional neighbors too. This is truly a major accomplishment and a great example of regional partners working together including Upper Salford, Montgomery County, and Pennsylvania Departments along with Spring Mountain Adventures, the Schirk family, the Kile family, the township road crew and staff, and our County planners. Thank you to all who made this happen!
