Newtown Rail Trail

21 Aug 2015

We are pleased to share this preliminary information on the Newtown Rail Trail currently being planned by the Bucks County Planning Commission. This Newtown Rail Brochure July2015 outlines the proposed 8.0-mile long, 12-foot wide trail that would eventually connect Newtown to Montgomery County. The right of way is owned by SEPTA. Funding for design and engineering has been approved by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) for the 2.5 mile portion which traverses Upper Southampton Twp.

Citizen support for this bike & hike trail has been led by the Penn Tammany Greenway Coalition. Learn more at www.penntammany.org

Congratulations and thanks go to the County Planning Commission for their hard work moving this project forward and to the Bucks County Commissioners for supporting the creation of new bike and hike trails in Bucks County.
