Hiking at Lehigh Gorge State Park

33 miles of trails

Following the D&L Trail, 26 miles of the Lehigh Gorge Trail offer easy hiking along the scenic Lehigh River. Highlights are:

  • Several waterfalls
  • Historic remnants of the Upper Grand Section of the Lehigh Canal
  • Opportunities to see wildlife

Potable water is available seasonally at the Rockport Access Area.

The Bald Mountain property is open to hunting and hiking only. The seven miles of hiking trails are not marked or signed -- pending the completion of the environmental review and long-term planning.

Only experienced hikers should hike this area and should carry a topographic map and a compass or GPS unit, and know how to use them.

The gorge is a natural area that possesses natural hazards like steep and treacherous terrain and fast-moving water. You are responsible for your safety and that of your family.

Wear proper hiking shoes and use caution when hiking in the gorge.
