D&L Half Marathon Course

The rail trail follows the former Lehigh Valley Railroad and stacks of railroad timbers can still be seen in some areas. Your journey will entail a peaceful route through lush forests and towering rock cliffs with breathtaking views of the Lehigh River. The pathway is flat and coated with crushed limestone, a perfect walking surface. Course has a net 204 elevation drop!
