To mitigate the increasing spread of COVID-19 in Pennsylvania, we have closed the National Canal Museum and offices of the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor. Our staff continues our mission-driven work from home. We hope you and yours will stay safe and healthy. Happy Trails!×
Welcome! Check in for the latest news on the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L), a nonprofit organization preserving the historic pathway that carried coal and iron from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol to fuel America’s Industrial Revolution, and a multi-use trail spanning 165 miles from the mountains of northeast Pennsylvania through Bucks County.
We’ve always said, “trails mean business.” The increased trail usage in 2020 has only showcased the economic opportunity in outdoor recreation and the D&L Trail. With a national bike shortage and record trail counts on the D&L, our Trail Friendly Businesses reaped the reward.
Across the D&L Trail, we’ve seen record trail counts exceeding even the single busiest month of trail use in 2019. It’s no surprise as restrictions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 send people outdoors.
Easton’s Nurture Nature Center Recently caught up with our Director of Trails & Conservation, Brian Greene, about the positive impact of trails in their surrounding communities, including increased property values, outdoor recreation opportunities and overall quality of life. Read the full feature on the Nurture Nature Center blog.
Did you catch us in the April Issue of Lehigh Valley Style? Lehigh Valley Style Magazine featured trails, hiking destinations, and all the wonderful ways their local reader can get outdoors in the Lehigh Valley, including the 40+ miles of D&L Trail that run through their backyards. We proudly made the ranks alongside our friends, partners, and fellow THE LINK Trail Network connecting trails. You can find their digital guide here.
