Walk to see the potential Radnor Trail Extension

This weekend is a great opportunity to see the potential for extending the very popular Radnor Trail.  Join us on an exploratory walk from Radnor to Villanova led by architect and trail designer Bob Thomas, as we see the various possibilities for the trail, which would become part of the proposed Valley Forge to Heinz Refuge Trail.
This walk will cover a small area that could become part of a trail that is being conceived as linking together  Valley Forge to the Heinz Refuge via the Radnor Trail and the Cobbs Creek Trail.  Come to learn about this conceptual trail alignment.
