Plymouth Township joined with Montgomery County to conduct a study to determine the feasibility of continuing the trail from its current end point at Germantown and Chemical Roads in Plymouth Township into Whitemarsh Township. With funding from a PECO Green Region grant and township funds, Plymouth Township has contracted with a private consultant to conduct the study.

Maps and a questionnaire will be provided, and representatives from the county, Plymouth, Whitemarsh, the study committee, and the consulting team will be available for comments and questions.
