Trail Hike: “D&L Trail North from Jim Thorpe to Glen Onoko”
Sunday,  November 14

Join the D&L and historian Vince Hydro for an on-the-ground exploration along the Lehigh River from Jim Thorpe to Glen Onoko. On this roughly 4 mile trek we will locate, explore and discuss many landmarks from our industrial past. Some of the highlights are where the Switchback Railroad chutes once were, Lock no. 1 of the Upper Division of the Lehigh Canal, the coal pockets for Room Run Railroad, the site of the village of Lausanne. We will also cross the Coalport trestle bridge and visit the ruins of Lock 2 of the Upper Navigation amongst other sites. Come and join us on the last walk of the season.
