Cross County Trail East Feasibility Study

Cross County Trail East - Single Alignment


The Montgomery County Planning Commission (MCPC), in partnership with its technical and engineering consultant, NV5, is nearing completion of its feasibility study of the easternmost segment of Montgomery County’s Cross County Trail. This 5-mile-long section of trail, when completed, will begin at Welsh Road in Upper Dublin Township and terminate at the county’s Pennypack Trail. The project involves several municipalities, including Upper Dublin, Upper Moreland, 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 June 30th, 2022.

  • Watch the Drone Video and View Concept Plans: Check out a drone flyover video of the proposed route, commissioned by the trail planning consultant, which contains graphics indicating the proposed route and nearby landmarks. The video is about 6 minutes long.   Detailed concept plans, which contain notes on proposed improvements along the trail corridor can be viewed here. These concept plans will be further discussed at our final public meeting. (see below)
