Paoli Pike Trail
East Goshen Township hosted a Paoli Pike Trail ribbon cutting on November 24 that was well attended by the many stakeholders who made the project a reality. And now, the trail is yours! View the trail map and learn a little more about the amenities along the trail and where pertinent connections are located. Trail segment A (Airport Rd to Ellis Lane) will be constructed in the spring of 2021, and we are actively pursuing grants to fund Segment B, from Ellis Lane to Reservoir Road.

- PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources ($268,000)
- The Chester County Municipal Grant Program ($150,000)
Mr. Shane and all East Goshen Township Board Members,
I wanted to express my appreciation for the Paoli Pike trail project. The past few days I have been able to do my morning runs on the newly opened segment from Reservoir Rd. all the way through the Applebrook side of the park. The trail surface is a pleasure to run on, and what a relief to not have to dodge traffic in order to get in some exercise!
I know that some members of our community have been less than enthusiastic about the construction of the trail, but I feel it is a real asset to the Township. Having this trail will cut down on pollution, free up more parking at the Township Park, allow families to enjoy the outdoors safely, and encourage independence among older children who won’t have to rely on their parents to get them to Wawa or other destinations. I am looking forward to a warm spring evening when we can set out for a walk and then head to the shopping center for a meal without having to get into the car.
I appreciate all of your efforts to make this trail happen.
