National Trails Day in Bethlehem

To mark National Trails Day 2013, a heat-tolerant group of hikers gathered on a intensely hot day at the Northampton County Community College Fowler Center for a mid-day walking tour of two of the prime trails in the City of Bethlehem: the South Bethlehem Greenway and the D&L Trail. The short loop between the Fahy Bridge and Minsi Trail Bridge featured a mix of business districts, historic districts and the heavily shaded canal towpath. In addition to enjoying varied scenery and frequent interaction with other trail users, the group discussed the emerging network of trails and plans to extend the PA Highlands Trails through the city and surrounding area.
