Pen Argyl’s water trail links the town’s districts through a centralized pedestrian path system. Several nodes act as destination points along the way.

At the base of Blue Mountain, the path begins adjacent to a forest amphitheater that is carved out of the woods. From this perspective, one has a view of the quarry lands below, where the link between the mountain stream and the water-filled industrial landscape is made clear.

The water trail includes space for Pen Argyl’s high school students to install signage down the forest path. This path follows the spring through the mountainous environment and into the town, visualizing the course of the water as it moves through the community’s landscape and eventually transforms into the Delaware River.
