Event Type

Get Your Tail on the Trail is offering a free trail walking program this year. Vary up your exercise routine and meet new people, learn new things, and experience different areas of the D&L trail.  

 Although these trail walks are free, we do still ask that you sign up for them so that we can control the number of people walking.  Walking with a group is fun, energizing and social; walking in a horde is not. We are limiting our walk to 30 people.   

Cancellation policy: We will cancel if the heat index is above 92, if it is expected to rain during the walk or if there were heavy rains leading up to the walk that made the trail difficult to navigate.  

Rescheduling: Not all walks have rain dates. Please check the description to see if there is a rain date. You can also check out tailonthetrail.org the day of the event. If it is cancelled it will be on the website. 

Visit: tailonthetrail.org for more information about the walks, sign ups, and updates. 


White Haven Tannery Walk 

Join us as we explore the remnants of the Lehigh Tannery factory.  The walk will head south on the D&L Trail to the ruins of the Lehigh Tannery. The tannery was the largest in the United States in the 1860s and 70s.  At its peak, it produced 80,000 hides per year.  Distance is approximately 3 miles roundtrip along flat terrain.  If there’s time, we will head north of White Haven to see the remains of one of the Upper Grand Section locks.  

Meet at the paved parking lot at White Haven’s Trail Head.  Leader: Vince Hydro
