Our trails offer panoramic views, wildlife observation, waterways, natural areas, and insight to the history or Lehigh County.  Those looking for a challenge can hike or mountain bike the challenging 8.5 mile Border Trail at Trexler Nature Preserve.  Those interested less strenuous trails will enjoy the ADA trail at Trexler or Lehigh County's 11 miles of  the D&L trail along the Lehigh River from Cementon to the Lehigh Gap Nature Center.

Our trails connect to other trails including the 2200 mile Appalachian Trail, other sections of the 165 mile D&L Trail, the Jordan Creek Greenway, the Slate Heritage Trail,  the Ironton Rail Trail and the 14 miles of trails at the Lehigh Gap Nature Center.
