The Lehigh Valley's Best Kept Secret
I've pretty much been on all of them. Canal Park to Sand Island, Nor-Bath trail, Tatamy, Sand Island to Easton, Palmer Bike Path, Trexler Park, the Delaware Canal from Easton To Riegelsville and a few others. They are all beautiful in their own way
I think you could spend a lifetime looking for the perfect trail and it would not be a wasted life. I've found my favorite. It's the D and L trail starting at Canal Street Park in Northampton. I've taken it to Slatington twice so far. It's wide, well-maintained, flat and just beautiful. After a few miles, I begin to see how pretty the Lehigh Valley still is. The ride to Slatington is ten miles, and at the trailhead, a food truck serves up delicious and healthy dishes like halupki soup, along with several other foods that look very appetizing.
I'm told this trail extends north all the way to White Haven, so this seems like the ultimate place for a long bike ride. Each mile is clearly marked, so you know exactly how far you've gone.
My goal this summer is to take it up north as far as I can go.
