      The Mount Penn Preserve Partnership (MP3) strictly prohibits individuals from creating new trails within the Mount Penn Preserve as per the municipalities’ and County of Berks’ ordinances. This is also for the sake of visitors’ safety, health of the land, and for the preservation of historical features found within the 4,000 acres of the Mount Penn Preserve. The MP3 is currently in the process of assessing the 40+ miles of trails used for equestrian, hiking, and biking. We encourage you to “STAY IN THE LANE” and enjoy the existing trail system that meanders through many historic features, flora and fauna.​​​​​
