D&H Rail Trail

Trail head at Simpson, PA.

October, 2017 by nijhowne

Please check that the trail head is open after November 2017. The impression I got after reading the signage at the trail head is that the trail might not be accessible at Simpson, PA until the beginning of 2018; even then, I suggest that you check that it is open and accessible.

Lackawanna River Heritage Trail

Trail system needs organization

October, 2017 by jim_borden

Trail is very nice in Scranton but things are poorly marked. maps are limited and it seems there is no overall plan or management to show people where to park and where trail goes. At Olive street going north no signs to show how to stay on the trail. Sure love riding and walking it and would make more use of more of it if there was better info.

Amazing Scenery

October, 2017 by mvargo12

This is another favorite of ours. The scenery is amazing and having the chance to see trains is another benefit. Really enjoy riding through the Lehigh Gorge State Park. So much to see. Just watch for the rattle snakes (seen) and black bear (didn't see). I recommend bringing a camera, there is a lot to see.

D&L Trail

Favorite Trail

October, 2017 by mvargo12

This is my favorite except for the first section out of White Haven to Middleburg Rd. This part needs to leveled out and fixed. Took a fall going through and haven't used it since. From Middleburg Rd. to Black Diamond is awesome. The scenery is the amazing. Love the lakes and bogs.

D&L Trail

Great easy day on the trail

October, 2017 by robert.richter89

I recently rode from White Haven to Jim Thorpe and back. The trail is in immaculate condition with no ruts or major debris. It is a very tightly packed gravel which makes it really easy to ride on. I rode on a Friday and the trail wasn't very busy and the people on the trail were very nice and courteous.

The only suggestions I would have for any perspective riders would be to plan ahead for food, water and bathrooms. There are no places besides White Haven and Jim Thorpe to get water or food. There are two bathrooms on the trail one ten miles away from White Haven and one three miles away from Jim Thorpe. Both White Haven and Jim Thorpe are quaint towns to spend time in.

D&L Trail

Great trail, lot's to see!

October, 2017 by vicki1960

We parked at the Rockland Access and walked less than a mile to Buttermilk Falls. Trail surface was very good packed down. There is another waterfall in the other direction of Buttermilk Falls. Great flat trail and the scenery is beautiful. We stopped here while in the area.
There is bike rental (seasonal) in White Haven and open daily in Jim Thorpe. They also offer shuttle service.
The trail runs through White Haven and there are several eateries there.
This trail is located near Hickory Run State Park as well.

Lackawanna River Heritage Trail

Very poorly marked

October, 2017 by conroyj2

My husband and I love this trail through Scranton, but the signage and mile markings are awful. the mile marker will reference a particular location, but then when you reach that location there is nothing to identify it. The mile markers are inconsistent, so it's practically impossible to get a clear idea of how far you've traveled. I think it would be greatly improved if when it states a location as being 2 miles in a direction, if the location was marked as well, and you can't just put mile markers willy nilly where you feel like it and then just stop.

Buffalo Valley Rail Trail

Nice ride but...

October, 2017 by rskoontz2

My wife and I rode the trail on a busy Sunday afternoon. We were glad to see that there were actually places to park at the Lewisburg end and about halfway (where there was also a portable toilet). It is a nice, well maintained trail, but... we encountered several large groups of (nicely dressed) boys and girls that didn't have bicycle trail riding etiquette. They didn't move over when approaching us nor did they let us know they were coming up from behind. One boy even seemingly played "chicken" with my wife which was really upsetting. We were passed by others that seemed to "own the trail" and felt like we were trespassing on the "local's" riding path. The farmers had recently spread manure and the smell was terrible. We found that we had to stop at nearly every one of the numerous road crossings along the trail to let traffic by. We've seen the trail while traveling back and forth on rt.45 so we wanted to give it a go. We did and that's that.

D&L Trail

October 2nd trail update

October, 2017 by jborrelli

There are several scenic sections along this trail. The beginning near Riverwalk Bar and the cement company creates a confusing start and the trail closing just past the sewage treatment plant makes for an abrupt "where do I go from here". At that point you can actually see the town. It looks like it will be a long time before the connecting pedestrian bridge will be completed. The little time I spent looking around I did not see any footings. The interior portion of the trail is nice scenic ride with plenty of historical locks and places to pull over.

D&L Trail

wonderful ride!

September, 2017 by bpatch

perfect day for a bike ride! took the shuttle from Jim Thorpe to white Haven then rode back. certainly the way to go. 25 miles back to Jim Thorpe. nice ride. has a slight downgrade back to town; but not so much that you don't have to pedal. Loved it. would do again but next time we hope to take the train. reserve early!!

I just looked at this section of the trail (Cementon – Northampton) on the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor website (http://delawareandlehigh.org/map/trail-section/cementon-northampton/).

The description has this to say about riding bikes through the Canal Street park:

"In the Borough of Northampton, walkers, runners, and now bikers are encouraged to use the paved D&L Trail through Canal Street Park. A decision was made during the summer of 2017 to allow cyclists through the park. As a cyclist, please use caution and be respectful to walkers and runners. Keep in mind that those on bikes MUST yield to those on foot. Stay in tune for additional signage and trail improvements through the park."
