Starting Monday July 23 until mid August a short stretch of the D&L Trail around mile marker 60 will be closed weekdays from 7 a.m. till 5 p.m. to repair a culvert. Trail users will be able to use this section, but cannot continue through the section while work is in progress. If you need to detour around the obstruction use Lehigh Drive and South Third Street.
There is a small trail network within Hugh Moore Park that allows for a few small loops. However, to continue on the D&L Trail, you need to follow the canal towpath across the bridge at Lock 47 and continue toward the Delaware River and Forks of the Delaware Trailhead. As you approach the Forks of the Delaware a spectacular convergence of railroads, canals and rivers will appear. Continue aside the trailhead parking lot and cross the canal bridge to continue south along the Delaware Canal.
The Hugh Moore Park Trailhead is also near a Lehigh River Water Trail access point and Forks of the Delaware Trailhead is across the Lehigh River from a water trail access point. Please refer to Wildlands Conservancy’s Lehigh River Water Trail website for more information on trips along the water trail.
