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.
