The Chester Valley Trail is still in planning and development stage with three separate sections built and useable. Chester County has two sections built, one of crushed stone and another along the Main Street Shopping Mall at RT 100 and Commerce Rd that is paved. The Montgomery County Section was built during the reconstruction of RT 202 and includes a bridge that crosses over the PA Turnpike I-76.
The Chester Valley Trail now extends from Phoenixville Pike, east to Route 29.
When completed the trail will extend from Downingtown, PA to Norristown, PA where it will connect to the Schuylkill River and Perkiomen Trails.
By 2008, 5.5 miles of this extension trail are expected to be completed in Montgomery County.
