"Our residents take pride and partner in their heritage—they understand the meaning of what we have and act to preserve it"
Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor and State Heritage Park, Management Action Plan.

Welcome to the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L), a collection of people, places and events that helped shape our nation's history. Come journey through five Pennsylvania counties rich with history and brimming with opportunities for outdoor adventure. Follow the 165-mile D&L Trail as it traverses canal towpaths and former railroad beds between Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne County and Bristol, Bucks County. Shop, dine, and unwind in our region's small canal towns and travel through our large, industrial cities to experience the eclectic culture that centuries of lumbering, mining, canals, railroads and steel working have produced. Fish or float on the region's natural arteries—the Delaware and Lehigh Rivers, or spend a day at a world-class museum or festival. No matter your interest, the D&L has something for you.
The D&L is a non-profit, membership organization designated by the United States Congress to protect the nationally-significant historic and natural resources found in this region. Through partnerships at the federal, state, and local



levels and engagement with the region's proud residents and businesses, the D&L has crafted a legacy of protecting our past, while enriching our future. Please consider supporting our work by becoming a member today.
