A Healthy Challenge, a Historic Trail

St. Luke’s University Health Network (St. Luke’s) and Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L) have partnered to bring the community a family fun initiative — Get Your Tail on the Trail! The “trail” is the nearly continuous 165-mile multi-use D&L Trail which stretches from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, PA. The free program aims to help people of all ages and abilities to meet their personal fitness goals and experience the value of the local trails through day-to-day challenges, public events, and incentives.
