This auto tour highlights John James Audubon's 1829 visit to the Upper Lehigh River in Northeastern Pennsylvania, where he studied a variety of birds and other wildlife. The tour retraces portions of his route through the "Great Pine Forest" of Carbon and Luzerne counties and provides the opportunity to experience the region’s natural and cultural heritage. During the 53-mile looped tour, you will pass through historic towns, such as Jim Thorpe, White Haven, and Weatherly, and scenic state parks, such as Hickory Run and Lehigh Gorge.
During the tour you will be guided by a tour map, posted tour signs, guide book, and your choice of CD, MP3, or audio cassette. The recording not only provides you with directions but also suggests side trips to nearby historic attractions. All of these materials are available for purchase in the D&L’s online store.
