Pennsylvania Outdoor Recreation Guide
Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor

Description: The Corridor is a collection of people, places and events that helped shape our great nation. Come journey through five Pennsylvania counties bursting with heritage and brimming with outdoor adventure. Canals and railroads-remnants of Northeastern Pennsylvania's prosperous coal age-form the spine of this more than 150-mile Corridor. You'll find something for everyone. Follow a history trail marked with stories about hearty lumberjacks, coal miners, lock tenders, canalers and railroaders. Explore quiet canal paths, challenging bike trails and rippling waters of the Delaware and Lehigh Rivers.
Relive history and discover a distinctive American landscape within Northeastern Pennsylvania. We invite you to bask in our heritage, ride or walk our trails, and enjoy our waterways.

Directions: Plane - We are an hour north of the Philadelphia airport. You can land in a Corridor airport by booking a flight into the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport or the Lehigh Valley International Airport.
Car - One (ten in the future) Landing (VisitorCenter) is currently open, in Easton, Pennsylvania. It is open Tuesday through Sunday, from 10:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. Located on the Delaware River, Interstate 78 and 22 pass Easton and Interstate 80 passes through Carbon and Luzerne Counties, an hour to the north of Easton.

While visiting Two Rivers Landing in Easton, plan to visit the Crayola Factory and the National Canal Museum in the same building.
