Friends of the Cynwyd Heritage Trail

The Friends of the Cynwyd Heritage Trail (FOCHT) was founded in 2008 by a group of dedicated volunteers committed to supporting the construction of the Trail. Currently, the Friends focus on supporting the volunteer efforts in beautifying the park.

In the future, the group hopes to support the recreational and educational resources of the park and provide for trail amenities. The Friends are now in the United Way’s Donor’s Choice Program.

Spring Cleaning Planned for March 15

Come join us for a ‘Spring Cleaning’ on the Cynwyd Heritage Trail this Saturday. We will be working along a number of different areas of the Trail from the Cynwyd Station, to Bala Cynwyd Park, to the Barmouth Trailhead and perhaps, all the way down to the Spaventa section, helping to clean up after the harsh winter.

Our workday starts at 8:30a, starting at the Barmouth Trailhead. As always, snacks, refreshments, tools and gloves will be supplied by the Friends. Any amount of time you can give is appreciated. So please join us, all ages are welcome.

The Circuit Commitment Campaign’s goal is to secure $10 million for trail planning, design and construction.

You can help by taking the following action to convince County Commissioners & Freeholders to make a $10 million commitment to The Circuit:
