Would you like to see a recreational trail along the inactive Fox Chase - Newtown SEPTA corridor in Bucks County?  This trail would provide an increased level of connectivity with established rails to trails corridors in neighboring Montgomery County.

A "shared-use" trail can be enjoyed by bicyclers, hikers, trail runners, dog walkers, birders, and more. Multi-use trails are community assets that can be utilized by future generations and create more appealing, healthy, and livable communities.

If you would like to see something productive occur along this line that benefits our local economy, health, community, and environment, please sign this petition!
