Palmer Township Recreation Trail

Things to Do

Palmer Township Recreation Trail PO Box 3039 Palmer, PA 18043 Get Directions

The Palmer Township Recreation Trail (a.k.a. the Towpath Bike Trail) is a terrific community asset for Palmer and Bethlehem Township residents and a great destination for visitors, as well. Three modes of transportation once operated on this corridor: Lehigh Canal, the Central Railroad of New Jersey, and the Lehigh Valley Transit (LVT) interurban. The eight-foot-wide asphalt trail starts near the Easton Area High School and traverses a variety of landscapes including forests, farmland, residential neighborhoods, and the banks of the Lehigh River.
