D&L Trail of the Month for October 2020: Saucon Rail Trail

We are back in action with our Trail of the Month program! Each month, we will feature a trail in the Delaware and Lehigh Valley. This month, every time that you exercise on the Saucon Rail Trail and enter it on your GYTOT account, you will receive one “raffle ticket” for the chance to win a gift card to Saucon Valley Bikes (more prize info below)!

For example, if you make two trips to the Saucon Rail Trail, you will get two tickets. If you go five times over the course of the month you will get five tickets… and on and on. See more info below on how to log your miles.

Reminder: you don’t need to ride the whole trail – any time spent on the trail is good for an entry!

And if you take any good photos from your visit, send them to tailonthetrail@gmail.com

Where?

The Saucon Rail Trail is a 7.6 mile multi-use trail that has replaced an old rail line, running from Hellertown (just south of Bethlehem) down past DeSales University and all the way to Coopersburg. It is a calm steady route with beautiful scenery along the way!

Here is the full trail map with distances from location to location and website with the 8 entry points on the trail where you can park your car- both helpful when planning your trip!

While you’re there, check out some of the local shops and eateries and stop by Saucon Valley Bikes (one of the D&L’s Trail Friendly Businesses and sponsors of the October Trail of the Month).

How do I log my my miles?

Same as you would for your normal Get Your Tail on the Trail account. Just select “Saucon Rail Trail” for your location (see photo).

(Not registered for GYTOT?? Sign up here!)

Prizes!

Each entry on the Saucon Rail Trail will grant you one “raffle ticket.” We will have the drawing at the beginning of November to determine the winners. There will be 1 GRAND Prize and 2 runner-up prizes.

Grand Prize (1): $100 Gift Card to Saucon Valley Bikes

Runner up Prizes (2): $20 Gift Card to Saucon Valley Bikes

Happy trails! Questions, comments, concerns, and all your photos and stories can be shared with tailonthetrail@gmail.com.
