Things to Do

Trail Section: White Haven – Lehigh Tannery

Status: Obstruction within trail section, see description

Distance: 1.6

D&L Trail Notice: This week, PA DCNR announced that the public will now have access to the D&L Trailhead at the south end of White Haven (MM 130.2), which includes a year-round restroom facility, improved public boat launch, and upgraded parking areas. The trail will be open for about 0.3 miles south from White Haven Market (to MM 129.9), then remain closed from the railroad underpass to Tannery Road (MM 128.6). This includes the new entrance at Route 940. The last stages of construction will cover a new commercial boat launch, upgraded roadways, and improved parking, as well as improvements to the trail itself. The estimated finish date is Spring of 2023.
Reminder that the D&L Trailhead at the north end of White Haven and the trail between White Haven and Middleburg Road was also opened recently after improvements.
Once again, we thank you all for your patience and understanding during this time. We look forward to a fully open D&L Trail from Black Diamond Trailhead all the way through Lehigh Gorge State Park in 2023. If you have any questions, please reach out to Lehigh Gorge State Park.

This section offers views of the Lehigh River, shady pull offs, and glimpses of historic ruins. It is part of 26 miles of uninterrupted rail-trail through Lehigh Gorge State Park, which extends from White Haven to Glen Onoko. The entire length of Lehigh Gorge is ideal for walking or off-road biking. The surface is crushed stone. Please refer to DCNR Lehigh Gorge State Park website for the latest details. This section also includes a Lehigh River Water Trail access point just south of I-80. Please refer to Wildlands Conservancy’s Lehigh River Water Trail website for more information on trips along the water trail.
