Montgomery County Press Release:
ABINGTON — The Montgomery County Commissioners are pleased to announce the opening of a 2.4-mile segment of the Pennypack Trail, most of which runs through Lorimer Park. The public is invited to attend the dedication ceremony at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 16, 2009 on the trail directly across Moredon Road from the parking lot for Lorimer Park.
Most of this segment of the trail lies within Lorimer Park and was converted from the abandoned Fox Chase-Newton Branch rail line.
It will eventually run 5.5 miles from Rockledge Borough to Huntingdon Pike in Abington and use a combination of trail and sidewalk connections through Lower Moreland, Upper Moreland and Bryn Athyn to connect to the Cross-County Trail.
The trail surface is crushed stone and appropriate for use by bicyclists, walkers/joggers and equestrians.
