I am pleased to inform everyone that construction has started on the East Penn Section of the D&L Trail. This 2.9-mile project will extend from the Lehigh / Carbon County line (just north of Lehigh Gap Nature Center) to the East Penn Boat Launch. Work will consist of drainage improvements and trail surfacing.
Due to safety concerns, the D&L Trail will be closed along this 2.9-mile section. During the construction period, hikers will still be able to access the trails within the Lehigh Gap Nature Center, and bikers can still use the L&NE Trail, which follows the upper rail bed through the Nature Center.
We will be reviewing the trail construction status on a regular basis and will open the trail for usage when conditions permit. Please check the D&L blog and website for updates.
