Trail Description

Starting from the small trail parking lot at the southern end of the trail in Parrysville, you will find a narrow trail with a hard packed dirt surface. The trail runs next to active railroad tracks in Parryville for about 1.5 miles. After a mile you will have to navigate through a long commercial parking lot. Stay on the right side of the lot next to the canal to pick up the trail again at the northern end. From there the trail runs along the Lehigh River for another mile before following the active tracks as they bend away from the river and lead you under Route 209 into Weissport where you will find another parking lot that starts the northern part of this trail. Once in Weissport, the trail improves dramatically. The trail surface widens and is crushed stone from here on out. The last mile winds down as the trail turns west and ends at a commercial site just outside of Jim Thorpe. There is no trail parking at this northern trailhead.
