Walkers on the Perkiomen Trail cross Perkiomen Creek by way of a renovated and re-decked railroad bridge.

RAHNS PA – Travelers on Montgomery County’s Perkiomen Trail, a paved and maintained public trail that runs 19 miles from Oaks PA to Green Lane PA, can now use their cell phones to learn about “the trail’s rich history and the local environment,” Trails Manager Rich Wood said Thursday (Aug. 5, 2010).

Phone numbers to call once visitors reach specific locations on the trail are published in a new brochure the county is making available in a dozen kiosks from the trailhead at Rahns PA, on PA Route 113, north to Green Lane.

Travelers can simply stop along the trail in a designated, numbered area, call in on a cell phone, and hear a variety of facts and stories about life in the Perkiomen Valley, Wood said.

For more information about the program, call (you can use your cell phone for that, too) 610-476-5063.
