Sellersville-Perkasie-East Rockhill Bicycle/ Walking Path System Description

Over 5 miles in length when all branch paths are counted, the Sellersville/Perkasie & East Rockland Twp. Bicycle & Walking Path System is a ribbon of asphalt that links several parks, open space preserves and historical sites in three Upper Bucks municipalities.

The trail begins at Main Street on the west end of Sellersville and follows a portion of the long abandoned Liberty Bell Trolley Line through the borough's Lake Lenape Park, passing a couple athletic fields, then running along the northwest shore of the East Branch Perkiomen Creek to the border with neighboring Perkasie.

After crossing into Perkasie, the trail continues through that town's Lenape Park, continuing along the creek. Highlights here include a pedestrian suspension bridge that carries a branch of the trail over the East Branch Perkiomen Creek which was originally built during the Great Depression, an old covered bridge that once carried Walnut Street over the creek, but is now on display as a tourist attraction on the northwest bank and an antique carousel as well as the field for the town's little league team, a skate park and a playground.

The trail crosses the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek on the Walnut Street bridge, it's only on-road concurrency, then takes a sharp, left turn on the southeast approach. It then continues up the southeast shore of the creek, passing through a wooded greenbelt where birds, squirrels, rabbits and even deer can often be seen. A footbridge provides access to Kulp Park and Market Street about midway, and the trail crosses back to the northwest shore on a second footbridge located just southwest of Callowhill Street on the borough's northeast end.

After crossing Callowhill Street, the trail passes between a development and the creek in a floodplain, then crosses into East Rockhill Township. This portion of the trail is somewhat more rural, passing through preserved open space lands, though being in suburban southeast PA, you're never far from civilization. The trail passes fishing areas near Bucks County Community College and users have the option to cross another footbridge into nearby Mood's Bridge Park. A covered bridge that is still in use and carries traffic over the creek, Mood's Bridge can be seen from the trail at the Blooming Glen Drive crossing. The trail continues another mile northeast to Iron Bridge Park, ending at Campus Drive, though access to the trailhead parking lot is off Branch Road.

Although most of the trail's current use comes from the three municipalities that it connects, the western segment will eventually be incorporated into the Liberty Bell Trail, a longer, multi-use trail that will extend from Quakertown to Norristown and form part of an intercity greenway linking the Allentown/Bethlehem and Philadelphia metro areas. Once this connection is built, this trail system will provide residents with a non-motorized, offroad link to the region's two major urban areas. It is already considered part of The Circuit, too.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking can be found at the fire company and in Lake Lenape Park in Sellersville, at Lenape, Menlo and Kulp parks as well as off Callohill Street in Perkasie and off Blooming Glen Drive and at Iron Bridge and Mood's Bridge parks in East Rockhill Twp.
