Things to Do

Trail Section: Weissport – Marvin Gardens

Status: Complete, open and improved

Distance: 3.6

As of November 18, 2016, trail construction is complete and the ribbon has been cut so this section is open and improved for bicycle and pedestrian safety! We hope D&L Trail users enjoy the improvements.

The trail between Lehigh Canal Park – Weissport Trailhead and Lehighton as it crosses the river is “share the road” and we recommend that inexperienced riders or families with young children use extreme caution. Parking is available at the Lehighton Trailhead along the trail spur north of the bridge to avoid the road portion. 

This section leaves the canal towpath, crosses the Lehigh River and follows the abandoned railroad tucked snuggly against a steep mountainside with the river always in view. The Marvin Gardens Trailhead is also very close to a Lehigh River Water Trail access point called West Bowmans. Please refer to Wildlands Conservancy’s Lehigh River Water Trail website for more information on trips along the water trail.
