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
- 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.
