Dauphin Street to Bradford Street & Kimmett’s Lock – Planning

The towpath along Dauphin Street is no longer extant. Therefore, alternative ways to connect must be explored. With help from Lehigh Valley Greenways partners and DCNR, this section will be examined as part of the Allentown Area Trail Study during 2022.To learn more about the study and provide feedback, visit:


The Kimmett’s Lock Trailhead is also a Lehigh River Water Trail access point. Please refer to Wildlands Conservancy’s Lehigh River Water Trail website for more information on trips along the water trail.

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.
