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. 

This month’s walk is actually a BIKE RIDE. Walkers will fall behind, so grab that bike and push your comfort levels! Join us on a 4-mile bike ride along the Saucon Rail Trail. Along the way, we will look at how the landscape of the Lehigh Valley was sculpted over hundreds of millions of years by geologic forces that have left their mark in the rocks around us; from ancient oceans to primeval swamps to iron furnaces and cement factories we will trace our geologic past and how it impacts our present. 

Trail Leader: Jeff Muchlin, will meet with participants in the parking lot at Water Street Park, 90 W Water St, Hellertown, PA 18055, on Sunday, May 13th @ 10 am. Rain date: May 28th @ 10 am. Duration of Ride: About 2 .5 hours. 

Although these trail bike rides are free, we do still ask that you sign up for them so that we can control the number of people biking.  Riding with a group is fun, energizing and social. We are limiting our ride to 30 people. 

Sign up: 

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.
