Appalachian Trail

Things to Do

Route 873 Access Lehigh Gap, PA Get Directions

Pennsylvania has 229 miles (369 km) of the Appalachian Trail. In Pennsylvania, the trail extends from the Pennsylvania – Maryland line at Pen Mar,  to the Delaware Water Gap at the Pennsylvania – New Jersey line. It intersects with the D&L Trail at Lehigh Gap (near Palmerton). In the southern half of the state, the Trail passes through Caledonia State Park, Michaux State Forest, and Pine Grove Furnace State Park, which is the nominal halfway point of the Trail. In the northern half of the state, the Trail passes through St. Anthony’s Wilderness, which is the second largest roadless area in Pennsylvania. Popular trail towns are Boiling Springs, Duncannon, Port Clinton, and Palmerton.

Thank you for visiting the D&L Trail Interactive Map.

Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (DLNHC) is a nonprofit organization that convenes over 30 local landowners that build and maintain the trail from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol.

Please Note: if there is an obstruction within a trail section the entire trail section will be noted as “obstructed”. Be sure to read the description of each trail section to learn the extent of the obstruction and how it may impact your trip. The information on this map is updated with information provided by landowners. An update will remain posted until the landowner confirms it is no longer relevant.

When on the trail you are in a public space and natural area, and you may encounter a range of wildlife, plants, and people. There are unhoused individuals along sections of the D&L Trail that travel through heavily populated areas. The perception of safety is different for each trail user – please stay alert and plan accordingly for your personal comfort level. For more information visit our Plan Your Trip page.
