D & L Trail
Eastern Pennsylvania’s D&L Trail spans just over 140 miles through the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor from Bristol, in the Greater Philadelphia region, to Mountain Top, nestled in the Appalachians. Already the second longest rail-trail in the state, the trail will expand to 165 miles when complete, besting the famed 150-mile Great Allegheny Passage in the number one spot.
Comprised of a combination of former railroad routes and canal towpaths, the scenic and historical pathway crosses five counties along both the Lehigh and Delaware rivers. The D&L Trail is a National Recreation Trail and is also part of two regional efforts, the Circuit Trails, which will connect 750 miles of trail in Greater Philadelphia and New Jersey, and the East Coast Greenway, which will connect multi-use trails from Maine to Florida. As the trail is a work in progress, be sure to check the D&L Trail’s official website for the latest information on the conditions of the trail.
