Trail Description

Saucon Rail Trail connects four communities: Hellertown, Lower Saucon Township, Upper Saucon Township, and Coopersburg. The trail has a slight grade traveling from north to south and is easy for a leisurely stroll or bike ride. Along the way, you'll pass beautiful homes and see tall wooden posts signifying the mileage designations utilized by the original North Penn Railroad (and later by the SEPTA commuter line) on which the trail was built. Four parks on the route offer parking, restrooms, athletic facilities, and picnic spots: Water Street Park, Grist Mill Park, Upper Saucon Township Community Park, and Southern Lehigh Living Memorial Community Park. There is also a trailhead on Reading Drive, offering parking, a port-a-potty, and a water fountain.
