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!×
Where does the trail go in the photo above? Is there a trail if there are no paths, signs, or markings? This might be a better question and these are all questions that our staff struggled to answer. And if our own D&L staff members do not know the answer, how are trail users supposed to know? After much internal discussion, the D&L has decided to re-route the mapped trail between Route 33 Boat Launch and Hope Road. The previous route suggested using the Route 33 Boat Launch Access Road. Due to safety concerns and trail user demand, we have decided to stay true to our roots and suggest the historic towpath as the appropriate trail route.
Please be advised that this trail section is mostly singletrack with a natural surface of dirt and rocks. We consider this section unimproved and it is narrow in places. As always, use caution and respect other trail users. There are two specific places to be extra cautious:
On November 18, the D&L Trail Tenders worked on a chilly morning to install 7 posts and 16 signs that will provide trail users with directions and mile markers to navigate this tricky section. We hope that our trail users will benefit from these signs and all volunteers’ efforts to improve the D&L Trail.
