New Kiosks in Riegelsville Kick-off Highlands Trail in PA

Two new interpretive kiosks welcome visitors to PA Highlands and the town of Riegelsville. AMC partnered with the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor to design, produce and install the new signs along the Delaware Canal towpath on June 12th. AMC’s Mohican Trail Crew installed the kiosks with assistance from Borough residents. The interpretive kiosks are located at the trailhead of the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN) and formally establish the co-alignment of the PA Highlands Trail along a portion of the Delaware & Lehigh Trail system. There are two signs, one that describes the Highlands Region and efforts to establish the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network and another sign that offers some great information about the town of Riegelsville.

The Riegelsville kiosk describes the history of the Borough over the past 200 years with a focus on the transportation networks that have evolved over the past two hundred years including river, canal, railroad, trolley and automobile routes. In the 21st century this heritage is the reflected in the recreational trails that Riegelsvlle residents and visitors enjoy including the Delaware Canal Towpath, the Delaware River Water Trail and the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network. The Borough of Riegelsville is situated along two nationally designated corridors: The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor and the Lower Delaware National Wild & Scenic River. The Borough is also a National Historic District that features many significant structures that were built during the 18th and 19th centuries.
