The Black Diamond Trail is now the nothernmost trail segment of the 165-mile Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor Trail. Accessed at the trail head on PA Route 437, the trail winds for nine miles through hardwood forests with scenic ponds and bogs replete with diverse trees and wildlife. It connects with the Lehigh Gorge State Park just north of White Haven, where it joins the Lehigh Gorge Trail, giving access to the D & L Trail as it winds along the Lehigh River and beyond on the Way to Bristol on the Delaware River.
Along the way, you’ll find scenic ponds and bogs replete with diverse trees and wildlife. The surface is mostly crushed stone and has a slightly steeper grade than other local trails. If you are looking for a challenge or for various activities including fishing, mountain biking, walking, and cross-country skiing, check out the D&L trail at the Black Diamond Trailhead.
