I do not really hit any parks, but the Bethlehem Township Community Center has a great walking trail that is paved! My sister and I like to ride our bikes from the Dixie Factory on 25th Street in Easton to....um, where it ends, lol....I have no clue. We get to the end, turn around, and come back. The Rails to Trails is a great website!

Ah D & L that would be the Delaware and Lehigh path from Northampton (right before you go over the bridge to Northampton) Probably in Cementon. I heard that it was lengthened.

I don't know much about different parks in the area, but there are TONS of bike paths! I live in Easton, and there is a path literally a minute away from my house. There is also the D&L, which starts somewhere in Northampton and ends up pretty far from here. Forks Twsp also has paths that weave all over the place. And along the canal in Easton there is another path.

I think the plan is to eventually connect everything. Check out the Rails to Trails Conservancy.....they have a bunch of info there.

I liike the Ironton Rail Trail also. Also there's a trail starting in Northampton, just before you get there that goes towards Laury's Station. I don't drive so I usually go to Muhlenberg College (1 1/2 miles) and then head for Village West Shopping Center. and back. There are so many pretty trails here. Another good one is along Canal Street in Northampton. There's a beautiful nature trail in Lehigh Parkway starting at the Fish Hatchery.

I'm usually on 24th street at least 5 times a week. There's a covered bridge that has been closed to traffic for a while now in a little walking trail park off of 24th. Never once in the years that I've lived in the Valley checked it out. We went there today, took the kids and they did great it's called Watershed. We did about a mile, but we took a short cut. It runs around what I think is the Little Lehigh, it passes a pool or some training facility for the Allentown Police. Mostly shaded area, open to bikes, leashed animals, and although we didn't see any the sign says fire pits are around and you can bring grills if you want. I'm so happy we found it.

As a family we enjoyed walking & biking the Ironton Rail Trail (in Whitehall) you can start anywhere on the 5 mile loop and turn around or do the whole loop. There's a playground as it goes through Coplay behind the Giant Food.

Now that we're in Nazareth, Jacobsburg Park is close and seems to have tons of paths and different historical activities too!

Trexler Park is beautiful!

I'd love to see if we get any other feedback from the Valley on favorite parks!

Figured i'd start a new discussion to get input on favorite parks in the area. Mine so far is Alpine near South Mountain for good hiking and for the kids we are fans of Trexler Park. Would love to branch out to more especially good ideas for the kids.
