• A new culvert underpass will be constructed to provide a trail crossing beneath Warner Road in Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County.
• Approximately 14 road crossings will be installed, including striping, signage and access controls.
• County park rangers will patrol the trail. Sections not yet open to the public are posted “NO TRESPASSING.” Security issues and maintenance are presently coordinated through Warwick County Park - 610-469-1916.
• County park facilities are open year round. Hours of operation are from 8:00 AM to sunset. In ice conditions and snow emergencies, they may be closed until parking and access areas are addressed. During substantial snowstorms, the Chester Valley Trail will be open to cross-country skiing for brief periods; however, snowmobiling and any other motorized use are prohibited.
It is estimated that there are over 85,000 jobs and 58,000 residents, as well as professional buildings, corporate centers and shopping malls along the trail in West Whiteland, East Whiteland, and Tredyffrin Townships.
Portions of the trail are parallel to or coincide with 18th Century, Revolutionary War movements by Washington's Continental Army and British General Cornwallis' troops, after the Battle of Brandywine in September 1777. This includes the area known as "Battle of the Clouds," where an impending battle was cancelled due to torrential rains and dampened black powder, in the vicinity of Phoenixville Pike and Swedesford Road. Parts of the Chester Valley Trail are labeled as part of this "Patriot's Path," which is proposed to connect the Paoli Massacre Site with Valley Forge National Historic Park.
