The the Sunrise Trail & Swamp Creek Greenway Feasibility Study was funded through a DCNR grant. Sunrise Trail is identified in the county’s comprehensive plan, Montco2040: A Shared Vision, as part of the planned countywide trail system. The study area stretches from the Perkiomen Trail in Schwenksville, near the confluence of Swamp Creek and Perkiomen Creek, to New Hanover Square Road in New Hanover Township. The study also addresses the need for the continued conservation of land and for the development of environmental education and historic interpretation facilities within the Swamp Creek Conservation Landscape. It was created through a steering committee and input obtained from two public meetings, small workshops, an online comment form, and numerous field trips and visits with property owners. The study consultant was Simone Collins Landscape Architecture.
