Opening Day for Trails: D&L Trail Bike Ride


Join us in Slatington for a bike ride as we kick-off the trail season with Opening Day for Trails! The D&L will highlight the work that is going on with the local steering committee to make Slatington a D&L Trail Town. See the improvements at the trailhead and promotions from local businesses.

There will be two options for bike rides. For those new to biking we will have a 2 mile trip to Lehigh Gap Nature Center where we will enjoy a short environmental program before biking back to the trailhead (4 miles roundtrip). Don’t have a bike? The D&L has some to loan for this event. Please email to request a bike so we know how many to bring.

Get Your Tail on the Trail is a partner for this special event and we encourage all attendees to learn more about this free health program at You can log your April 7 biking miles toward the Move More in April Challenge.

For experienced bike riders, join the We Like Bikes ride that will leave from the Slatington Trailhead and go all the way to Jim Thorpe (approximately 30 miles).

So whether you are new to biking or a seasoned pro we hope you join us to celebrate the start of the trail season!
