Forks Township Recreation Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Forks Township Recreation Trail follows the an old right-of-way of the former Lehigh & New England Railroad. Starting at the trail's midpoint behind the Riverview Country Club in Easton, you'll find a smooth, paved section for 0.5 mile through a quiet, neighborhood. The trail ends at a residential street.

For a more colorful rail-trail experience, continue to where the paved path connects with a hard-packed dirt and grass pathway. This section traverses wooded areas and open fields and runs along a rocky bluff overlooking the Delaware River. The trail ends at a long flight of steep wooden stairs to a parking lot across the street.

Country Club Access Point:
From Route 33 take 191 East and turn right (south) onto Main street which turns into Sullivan Trail. Take Sullivan Trail South from Stockertown. Cross Uhler and turn left on Newlins Road. Bear Left on W. Newlins Road and turn right on Broadway and pass through a residential community (look for Riverview Country Club sign). Although there is no official trail parking at the country club, there is a cleared asphalt area before the club drive.

Map is somewhat accurate, but written directions are outdated. The official trail actually begins on Winchester Dr., just east of its junction with Broadway. Parking is across the street. The western portion (west of Broadway) as shown on map is more
