Slate Heritage Trail

The Slate Heritage Trail is a nice, short spur on the D&L Trail in Slatington, PA.  It is a rail to trails project along the old Lehigh Valley Railroad, Slatedale Branch. The trail parallels Trout Creek and runs 3.3 miles. There is a covered bridge about half way up the trail. The picturesque spot seems a favorite for locals taking pictures for special occasions such as proms, weddings and so forth.

For more information on this trail consult the Northern Lehigh Historical Society.

The Slate Heritage Trail is part of The Link system of trails.

For a video of one of my recent rides see Mark's Bike Tock on YouTube.
