Runner Notes

The trail follows the towpath and provides a relatively smooth, mostly gravel biking and walking surface.

Description

This section of D&L Trail connects Allentown and Bethlehem, the two largest cities along the D&L Trail, but users would never know it. Trips on the canal towpath are tranquil with the Lehigh Canal on one side and the Lehigh River on the other side. The trail follows the towpath and provides a relatively smooth, mostly gravel biking and running surface.

Ample parking is available at both the Allentown Lehigh Canal Park and Bethlehem Sand Island Trailheads. The Allentown Lehigh Canal Park Trailhead is also a Lehigh River Water Trail access point and the Bethlehem Sand Island Trailhead is near a water trail access point. Please refer to Wildlands Conservancy's Lehigh River Water Trail website for more information on trips along the water trail.
