With 144 miles open and available to trail users and plans for more than 165 miles, individuals across the Corridor can access the trail via 54 trailheads up and down eastern Pennsylvania and connect to 55 parks.

Historic Sites

Throughout the D&L Corridor, history is still very much alive and the D&L connects people to remnants of American history. Through the National Canal Museum, interpretive panels on the trail, and conservation efforts, the D&L preserves and celebrates the rich history of the Corridor. The physical trail, moreover, connects users to more than 300 sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Businesses that are Trail Friendly

The Corridor is full of great places to eat, shop, and recreate — but we’ve done the work of identifying the most trail friendly ones so you don’t have to. From training their staff on D&L Corridor and Trail knowledge to refilling water bottles and providing bike racks, our D&L Certified Trail Friendly Businesses are committed to not only welcoming trail users and the D&L community but serving their unique needs.
