There is a lot to love about living in Lehigh Valley, and one of those things is the abundant opportunities for enjoying outdoor activities including kayaking, skiing, biking, and hiking. When it comes to hiking, Lehigh Valley residents and visitors have quick and easy access to one of the country’s most iconic hiking trails: The Appalachian Trail.
Lehigh Valley Access to the Appalachian Trail
Thousands attempt to navigate the entire 2,190 miles each year, but only one in four complete the journey. The good news is that you don’t have to be a long-distance hiker to enjoy the beauty of the trail—and fall is one of the best times to step on to the storied paths to take in the changing of the leaves, the wildlife, and the cool autumn weather.
The Appalachian Trail runs through 14 states and includes 50 miles in Lehigh Valley. The trail crosses several roads where you can hop on to begin your adventure. Gain access at:
- Route 309 North of Tripoli
- Blue Mountain Drive Near Danielsville
- Route 115 Outside Wind Gap
- Route 191 Between Bangor and Stroudsburg
Whether you’re looking for an easy hike with the kids or a journey that will earn you bragging rights, you can find it on the Appalachian Trail. From round trips of less than a mile (Bake Oven Road in Heidelberg Township to the Bake Oven Knob Lookout where you’ll be treated to stunning views) to the D&L Trail that runs 165 miles from the Poconos to Trenton, there is something for hikers of all skill levels.
