Hikers, bikers, joggers, fishermen, historians, nature enthusiasts, and many others enjoy The Delaware & Lehigh Trail, part of the Pennsylvania Heritage Corridor. Designated in 1988 as a National heritage area, the trail incorporates hundreds of years of rich history, and covers 165 miles and five counties in eastern Pennsylvania.
There is a vast array of wildlife along the D & L Trail, including cardinals, geese, herons, numerous red – eared slider turtles, goldfinches, mallard ducks, whitetail deer, and countless numbers of various fish. Spectacular waterfalls and wildflowers highlight the area.
The D & L Trail is right in the heart of O’Brien’s Moving & Storage coverage area, and as the Eastern PA movers with a unique knowledge of the area, we love to explore the various trails as well. The trail has just so many incredible historical sites to see. Among our favorites, moving from north to south are:
- The Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton. Learn the history of steam railroads as the ground vibrates while you smell the hot steam and oil.
- Eckley Miners Village in Weatherly. Founded in 1854, it is a dramatic example of the hard life of an anthracite miner and family in a 19th century planned coal mining town.
- Bear Mountain Butterfly Sanctuary in Jim Thorpe. Bear Mountain is a gorgeous butterfly sanctuary with live indoor aviary.
- Bogert’s Bridge. This beautiful, 145 foot covered bridge is one of the oldest in the nation, and is only open to quiet recreation.
- The national Canal Museum in Easton. Take a trip on the Josiah White II canal boat and see how the locktenders used the pulleys and levers to operate the canal.
- Bucks county Civil War Roundtable in Doylestown. See the numerous artifacts, sculptures, original maps and photos, and works of art from the Civil War.
In addition to our favorites, there are so many more excellent tours and sites, depending on your specific interests.
