3. Devault Trail Initiative

Feasibility Study Completed - Oct 2015

This study determined the best way to link Phoenixville and the Great Valley Route 29 corridor in Chester County with a multi-use trail is along the unused Devault Line railroad right-of-way. The trail will connect people and neighborhoods with parks, community services, recreation, schools and the regional trail network known as the Circuit. This multi-use trail will create a connection between two major components of the Circuit, greater Philadelphia’s regional trail network. The north end will connect with the Schuylkill River Trail at Phoenixville. The south end will connect with the proposed Warner Spur and with a proposed trail along PA Route 29, either of which will connect to the Chester Valley Trail.

In addition to creating a connection to the Schuylkill River Trail and the Chester Valley Trail, the Devault Trail inter-connects between recreational facilities, parks and trails, community services, and schools. Connections include the sports complex at Marosek Park, the Phoenixville YMCA, Pickering Preserve, Great Valley Nature Center, the Horse-Shoe Trail, French Creek Trail, Pickering Preserve Trail, Great Valley Middle and High School, Charlestown Elementary School, the Technical College High School and accompanying playing fields, the Phoenixville Area High School on Pothouse Road and much more.
