Our Vision

Walk out your door and head north or south, east or west, and you can spend all day traveling on the trails of The Circuit – 750 miles of bicycle and pedestrian trail connecting Greater Philadelphia.

Cross paths with your neighbors as you walk your dog on a trail near your home, or encounter your friends while biking through the rolling fields of Chester County, the urban green spaces of Philadelphia and Camden, or a canal towpath in Bucks County.

Connect to places you know well by using a trail for your bicycle commute, or take a new trail on a ride to a place you've never been.

Bicycling on The Circuit connects you to places near and far, plugging you into trail systems that extend to Reading or the Shore, and to the East Coast Greenway -- a green highway linking Philadelphia north through New York City to Calais, Maine and south through Washington, DC to Key West, Florida.

Multi-use paths provide multiple benefits to neighborhoods, communities and the region as a whole.  Check out the various benefits a connected Circuit would add bring to the region.

When we connect the 750 miles of The Circuit, Greater Philadelphia will have a trail network unlike any other in the country -- connecting the urban, suburban and rural communities of the fifth largest metropolitan region in the US. The Circuit will make our region stronger by providing a place for healthy transportation and recreation, connecting our communities to green space, and making our neighborhoods more attractive places to live and work.
