Perkiomen Trail 2008 User Survey & Economic Impact Analysis
The Perkiomen Trail is a multi-use trail traversing 19 miles between Green Lane Park in Upper Frederick Township, Pa., to Oaks in Upper Providence Township, Pa., where it connects to the Schuylkill River Trail. Along its route, the trail passes through some of the most scenic areas in Pennsylvania’s Montgomery County as it follows the course of the Perkiomen Creek.
During 2008 this study of the users of the Perkiomen Trail was conducted by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy under a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. This study utilized a survey methodology previously tested on Pennsylvania trails and documented in Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s Trail User Survey Workbook.
