This fall, we invite you to fall in love with Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (DLNHC) Trail Friendly Businesses. The DLNHC first introduced our Trail Friendly Business (TFB) program in 2018 and since then we have welcomed dozens of businesses to the program from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol and everywhere in between.
You can find these businesses along the D&L Trail by looking for the official Trail Friendly Business logo displayed on storefronts and front desks throughout the Corridor. With this designation, these businesses not only welcome trail users and support trails, but provide amenities that serve their specific needs, from filling up water bottles to providing bike parking, tools for quick repairs, and device charging stations.
The program connects you (the user) with local and regional businesses to enrich economic development along the trail. The DLNHC equips businesses in Luzerne, Carbon, Lehigh, Northampton and Bucks counties with information about trails, advice for trail users, and important amenities in order to create an atmosphere conducive to the needs of this demographic. Over 30 businesses have qualified as Trail Friendly Businesses across the Corridor and can be found on our website .
As you explore the Corridor with a walk, run, or bike ride you will experience firsthand the uniqueness of the business offerings and the friendly faces who run them. Along the D&L Trail, there are many businesses that are thriving in cities, small towns, and villages; coffee shops, restaurants, lodging, and recreation-focused businesses alike are making a name for themselves.
We have certified eight new businesses. In this year’s lineup, the DLNHC is proud to introduce Bronson E-bikes (Weissport), Wine & More on 1st (Lehighton), 1740 House (Lumbersville), The Filbert Best & Breakfast (Danielsville), Valley Royale (Lehighton), Circle 25 Gifts (White Haven), Gypsies Retreat (Bowmanstown), and The Soapy Bee (White Haven).
