Trail Location Blazes have been installed along all authorized trails.

In an effort to create better trails, Trail Location Blazes have been installed on all authorized trails.  

These Location Blazes will help to identify locations of points of interest, where maintenance issues need to be addressed and guide emergency services providers throughout our park.

Why You Should Support Our Organization

If you enjoy hiking McKaig Nature Education Center, you should support it. Here are a couple of reasons why... and some little known facts:

1:  While many people assume McKaig is a township-owned park, the town is only a part-owner.  The bulk of the upkeep falls to the non-profit Upper Merion Park and Historic Foundation.  UMPHF relies on YOUR membership and donations.

2:  Many people assume that trails just take care of themselves, and will always be there whenever you want to take a stroll, snap a few pictures or walk your dog.  In fact, trails require constant maintenance due to erosion, storm damage, trees falling, weeds growing, and trash throwing.  UMPHF relies on YOUR volunteer efforts and donations to keep our trails open and passable.

So please Join, Donate or Volunteer today.  Your help IS needed to preserve and improve this treasure in Upper Merion Township for all to enjoy.  Just click the "donate" or "volunteer" buttons.
