County Council in support of

Multi-Purpose Circuit Trails


Delaware County Council presented a resolution to Leonard Bonarek, Regional Planner of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia on July 11 in support of the concept of the nine county region completing 180 miles of Circuit Trails by 2025. The Circuit Trails are a connected system of multi-purpose trails located in the nine counties that comprise the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) region, including Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Chester, Delaware, Mercer, Burlington, Camden and Gloucester Counties. The Circuit Trails Coalition, DVRPC, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and other agencies have committed to complete non-motorized options for transportation and recreation to provide safe facilities separated from vehicular traffic to encourage bicyclists, walkers, the physically challenged, and other non-motorized users of all ages to be more active and spend time outdoors.
