Friends of Chester Valley Trail

In 2010, a group of volunteers became interested in forming a Friends Group for the Chester Valley Trail. The group is dedicated to all things related to the trail. Initial objectives are: 

  • Acting as a conduit for suggesting improvements
  • Alerting the department to emerging conflicts or problems along the trail
  • Providing assistance in reducing trail maintenance costs or providing additional amenities, with volunteer projects
  • Working with the department and commercial businesses to make adjoining shops more trail-friendly
In particular, the group continues to look for representation from local municipalities, recreational groups (bicyclists, hiking and jogging clubs), commercial businesses in adjoining shopping centers, and residents and representatives from large neighborhoods or homeowners associations or who use the trail regularly.

Chester Valley Trail Funding Project – A partnership between Chester County, Natural Lands Trust and Friends of the Chester Valley Trail, the Chester Valley Trail Funding Project works to facilitate private funding for construction and enhancement projects for the Chester Valley Trail.
