The Montgomery County Planning Commission, in partnership with its consultant NV5, is continuing work on studying the feasibility of the easternmost segment of the Cross County Trail. This 6-mile-long segment, when completed, will begin at Welsh Road in Upper Dublin Township and terminate at the county’s Pennypack Trail. The project may involve several municipalities, including Upper Dublin, Upper Moreland, Horsham, Hatboro, and Bryn Athyn. The entire Cross County Trail, once completed, is planned to stretch from Conshohocken in the west to the Pennypack Trail in the east, totaling 17.5 miles in all, and will connect the Schuylkill River, Wissahickon Creek, Cresheim, and Power Line Trails. The planning study for the eastern portion of trail is anticipated to be completed in early 2022.
