Delaware & Lehigh - Marking Miles on the D&L Trail

As part of the D&L’s National Trails Day celebration, we will begin to install mile markers along sections of the D&L Trail. Right now there are three areas where markers will be installed: Freemansburg to Bethlehem, Parryville to Weissport, and Walnutport to Lehigh Gap.

The mile markers are six-inch, maroon and white, oval metal signs that will be mounted at the top of wooden posts. The top will say “D&L Trail,” and the center will indicated the mile. When the system is done, there will be markers on accessible portions of the trail from Easton to Wilkes-Barre. The Delaware Canal already has a system of markers.

We need volunteers for all aspects of this project, from providing wheel barrows to erecting posts. If you are interested in participating, please contact Dennis Scholl by phone at 610-923-3548 (ext.225) or by email at [email protected].
