The Lehigh Valley is home to a dizzying array of outdoor recreation activity opportunities.
From the numerous parks throughout the wonderful communities in the area to the rushing waters of the Lehigh and Delaware rivers, to the simplicity of hiking the Appalachian trail, the Lehigh Valley has it all.
While many people are familiar with the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor, which you can view a map of here, not as many are as familiar with another trailway tucked away in the eastern Lehigh Valley.
The Two Rivers Trailway offers roughly 30 miles of hiking and biking paths that connect visitors to multiple parks in Northampton County, from Penn Pump Park in Palmer Township to Bushkill Park in Forks Township.
In a 2017 Morning Call article, it was noted how local officials were worried that most people don’t realize how extensive the trail system is, so they put together a fun marketing plan that included a new logo and trail maps that are installed this month along sections of the trail in Forks, Palmer, Tatamy and Wilson.
“We decided we really need to do some mapping and show where all the connections are,” Hopkins said.
Hikers and bikers can use the trail to stop in multiple local parks, including Braden Park in Tatamy and Hackett Park in Easton, before eventually connecting to Easton’s portion of the D&L Trail. It also connects to Easton’s Karl Stirner Arts Trail, which leads to downtown.
