Highlands Kiosk at the Forks of the Delaware

Trail Crew volunteers finish the kiosk installation.
Mohican Trail Crew volunteers installed an Mid-Atlantic Highlands interpretive kiosk at the Forks of the Delaware, located along the D&L Trail in the Delaware Canal State Park. The Trail Crew members were assisted by Silas Chamberlin, who is Director of Stewardship and Interpretation for the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor.

The first kiosk was installed last spring along the D&L Trail in Riegelsville. Two more kiosks will be installed this summer at high profile locations including the Perkiomen Trail at the Crusher Road Trailhead, and along the D&L Trail at Sand Island, Bethlehem PA.

The D&L Trail at the Forks of the Delaware location receives heavy use due to its proximity to the City of Easton, and it's the junction of the Delaware Canal and the Lehigh Canal (hence the name: D&L Trail). The kiosk is framed by a dramatic backdrop -- the confluence of the Lehigh River and Delaware River.

The interpretive kiosk, which was designed in a partnership between AMC and the D&L National Heritage Corridor, describes the Mid-Atlantic Highlands region, the Pennsylvania Highlands and the PA Highlands Trail Network.

The latest PA Highlands kiosk is along the D&L Trail at the 'Forks of  the Delaware'
