One of best trails in the area. Good for walking, running, walking the dog or biking. Mostly flat with a little elevation outside of Hellertown. Follows an old Railroad line. Currently maintained for about 6 miles from Hellertown to Coopersburg.

It goes from Hellertown to Coopersburg about six por seven miles. Flat because it is an old railroad bed. There is water at beginning, end, and in the middle.

It is a loose gravel path buy some of it is a little bare because of the winter. The bare spots are very hard ground. (
