Trail Section: Kimmett’s Lock – Allentown

Status: Obstruction within trail section, see description

Distance: 2.1

This section of trail should only be used by through-riders or trail users looking to connect through Allentown Overlook Park. From Kimmett’s lock to Allentown Canal Park this section is mostly “share the road.” Future plans include upgrades to Bradford Street to create safe share the road access to the recently completed D&L Trail between Bradford and Albert Streets. At the end of the delineated trail at Albert Street, follow Albert Street crossing the railroad tracks at the entrance to Allentown Lehigh Canal Park.

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.
