The D&L Trail is OPEN, but our National Canal Museum and offices are closed.
To mitigate the increasing spread of COVID-19 in Pennsylvania, we have closed the National Canal Museum and offices of the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor. Our staff continues our mission-driven work from home. We hope you and yours will stay safe and healthy. Happy Trails!
The D&L Trail is a multi-use trail designed for hikers, walkers, bikers, runners, and in some sections horses and snowmobiles. The D&L Trail is an inclusive space that welcomes people of all walks of life regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, level of physical ability, income, and recreation preferences. To maintain this inclusive and safe environment, we hope that all trail users will be nice and share the trail heeding to some basic guidelines.
Here are some general guidelines to help create a culture of proper trail etiquette. It is important to:
Be friendly –a smile, wave, or hello can go a long way.
Be courteous-respect other trail users regardless of their mode, speed or level of skill.
Be predictable – travel in a consistent and predictable manner.
Be careful – Be in control and paying attention especially at pinch points or intersections.
Give an audible warning before passing – bells or say on your left. Try not to startle.
