Wildlife Watching at Lehigh Gorge State Park

River corridors are natural transportation routes and so the gorge has a great diversity of plants and animals. Great blue herons, mergansers, kingfishers, and beavers are common river residents.

During summer, the Lehigh Gorge Trail is a great place to see:

  • Snakes
  • Fence lizards
  • Warblers, especially black-and-white and magnolia warblers
