Directions:  The Pennypack Trust’s headquarters are located at 2955 Edge Hill Road, Huntingdon Valley, PA 19006, one-third mile east of Terwood Road.  The headquarters’ driveway, marked with two large beige signs, is immediately across Edge Hill Road from the expansive grassy fields of Abington Health’s June Fete Fairgrounds.

The Pennypack Preserve is about 4 miles (10 minutes) southeast of the Pennsylvania Turnpike’s (I-276) Willow Grove exit (#343).

Via public transportation:  The Pennypack Preserve has no easy access by public transportation.  Roads surrounding the preserve are busy and narrow, and walking and bicycling on the roads are dangerous.  The best and safest option for reaching the preserve by public transportation is from the Bethayres Station on SEPTA’s West Trenton regional rail line.  From the station, make your way east on Huntingdon Pike (PA Rte. 232) to Welsh Road (PA Rte. 63); the Bethayres Shopping Center is located at this corner.  Turn west (left) onto Welsh Road and travel approximately one-half mile to Montgomery County’s Pennypack Trail.  Head north on Montgomery County’s Pennypack Trail to reach the Pennypack Preserve.  Walking briskly, travel time from the train station to the Trust’s headquarters is 45-50 minutes, though it is possible to reach the southern end of the preserve in about 20 minutes.
