BUSHKILL TWP., Pa. -

The Bushkill Township Board of Supervisors announced that the official ribbon cutting ceremony for the PPL Trail will be held next Friday, April 12th at 2:30 in the afternoon.

The trail is a result of a $200,000 Grant awarded to the Township from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources in 2009.

The land used for the trail was donated to the Township from PPL and links the Jacobsburg State Park to the trailhead located off of State Route 512. It is approximately three miles long, starting at the intersection of Keller Road and Belfast Road.

Supervisor Chairman Brien Kocher will be speaking at the event along with Vice Chairman Jason Smith on behalf of the Environmental Advisory Council for the Township.
