Lake Iliff Trail Description

This is the first phase of the proposed Lehigh & Hudson River Rail Trail. The second phase will connect Hillside Park to Kittatinny Valley State Park. It is hoped that there will be an eventual connection to the nearby Sussex Branch Trail. The trail sits on the disused bed of the Lehigh & Hudson River Railway. This first phase runs on a densely-graded aggregate surface through a wooded route with scenic views of Lake Iliff along the way, passing along the viaduct at its mid-point. 

 

Parking and Trail Access

Trail can be accessed from either Mulford Rd. at its north end, or Hillside Park on Lake Iliff Rd. at its south end. There is plenty of parking at Hillside Park (146 Lake Iliff Rd).
