Things to Do

Trail Section: Weissport – Marvin Gardens

Status: Complete, open and improved

Distance: 3.6

As of November 18, 2016, trail construction is complete and the ribbon has been cut so this section is open and improved for bicycle and pedestrian safety! We hope D&L Trail users enjoy the improvements.

The trail between Lehigh Canal Park – Weissport Trailhead and Lehighton as it crosses the river is “share the road”. Pedestrians can use the sidewalks and cyclists can ride in the road. We recommend that inexperienced riders or families with young children use caution and walk on the sidewalk. 

This section leaves the canal towpath, crosses the Lehigh River and follows the abandoned railroad tucked snuggly against a steep mountainside with the river always in view. The Marvin Gardens Trailhead is also very close to a Lehigh River Water Trail access point called West Bowmans. 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.
