Hit the trails.
Stroll along the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor. Whether you prefer to walk, bike, or run - this trail will give you views for days. While the full trail spans 165 miles, a large portion passes through Lehigh Valley. Depending on which section you traverse, you’ll get glimpses of the canal, a locktender’s house, historic sites, and more. Or check out one of the trails that comprise THE LINK Trail Network, which is an interconnected network of beautiful multi-use trails (the D&L being one of them).
Opt for a guided walking tour or explore on your own.
No matter how you see the grounds of Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites, they are always impressive. Take in bright reds & oranges set against backdrops of original structures that date back to the 1700s.
Climb to new heights.
At Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, you can take in sweeping vistas from the mountaintop lookouts. During the autumn migrations, guests might even spot hawks and other raptors flying over the region. Pack along a pair of binoculars for some of the region’s best birding. Please note that the Hawk Mountain Sanctuary trails are open, but the Visitor Center facility remains closed at this time. Non-member should plan on paying with exact cash OR purchase an advance ticket and bring a printed copy of that ticket to the gate.
Explore the seven covered bridges of the region.
Covering just over 50 miles, the Lehigh Valley Covered Bridge Tour will take you on a countryside journey. Five of the bridges allow cars to drive through, though the other two are just steps away from ample parking space. Pack along a picnic lunch and make a day of it!
