Ironton Rail Trail


Ironton Rail-Trail

There’s lots for history buffs to love as they stretch their legs on the Ironton Rail-Trail, an easy multi-use trail that follows the route of the Ironton Railroad in Coplay and Hokendauqua. There are more than two dozen sites and nineteenth-century ruins to explore that tie into the Lehigh Valley’s roots in the iron and cement industries, including the eerie, 90-foot-high Saylor Cement kilns and a refurbished red caboose. The well-maintained trail with historic markers is mostly paved and consists of a 5.3-mile loop and 3.9-mile spur west towards Ironton.
