CONSTRUCTION UNDERWAY (miles 80-81.5) commencing June 2021, this section of trail will be under construction to develop 1.5 miles of improved trail until Spring 2022. There will be active construction Monday-Friday from 7AM-4:30PM and it is strongly suggested trail users avoid this section during the week. For more information, contact the D&L Trail & Stewardship Manager.
This is an unimproved section of the D&L Trail that is open for the public to use, but not improved. On the upstream side you can access it from the North Catasauqua Trailhead and from the downstream side you can access the path from Race St or the Deily Coal Yard Trailhead.

Improvements needed to adapt this section of canal towpath to multi-use trail are underway until Spring 2022. D&L thanks the Department of Conservation & Natural Resources, Department of Community & Economic Development, and Northampton County for their funding support.
