Stretch of Trail Paying Tribute to Victims of 9/11 Attack Passes Through King of Prussia, Audubon
A stretch of the Sept. 11 National Memorial Trail passes through eastern Montgomery County, writes Rachel Ravina for the Main Line Times & Suburban.
“Obviously and symbolically, the trail ties the county to this broader recognition of the people lost on 9/11 and the resilience and perseverance of our country,” said Bill Hartman, open space planning manager for the Montgomery County Planning Commission.
The 1,300-mile Trail – 30 miles of which run through Montgomery County – encompasses six states in an effort to join the sites of the 2001 attacks: the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, and the Flight 93 plane crash site in Shanksville.
“At its northern extent where it enters from Bucks [County], the trail utilizes the existing 202 Trail, and comes south from there to Welsh Road,” said Hartman.
From there the National Memorial Trail moves on-road using Dekalb Pike, Skippack Pike, North Trooper Road, and Egypt Road.
It goes off-road again with its connection to the Audubon Loop Trail and finally onto Schuylkill River Trail near Oaks.
