Last week, the Circuit Trails Semi-Annual meeting was held to discuss what’s completed, in progress, and upcoming throughout the Greater Philadelphia Area from 2020 to 2021. The call had over sixty guests gathered from around the region to report on the Circuit Trails successes, challenges, and updates presented by Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, Delaware River Waterfront Corporation, Pennsylvania Environmental Council, Swim Pony, and Clean Air Council.
A few noteworthy highlights include: 353 miles completed in the DVRPC region by the end of the year, Drone videos of upcoming trails in Burlington County, and the newly available TrailOff audio storytelling app that’s worth exploring while on the trails. In addition, there’s noteworthy data reported on the tremendous increase of users now that nature has become one of the best sources of entertainment for all. For in-depth coverage and 2021 plans on a few key trails, take a look at the presentation and watch the meeting to see what’s happening along the Cobbs Creek Trail in Philadelphia, the Upper Bucks Rail Trail, and the Delaware River Heritage Trail in Burlington County.

To ensure the region completes 500 miles by 2025, we encourage community members who are interested in this project to become a Circuit Citizen by helping us complete trails to date and growing toward its ultimate goal of 800-plus miles across our nine-county region.
