Join hike leaders Bob Abbott and Ray Bleak for a walk of approximately 7 miles. Allow approximately 4 hours at a leisurely pace with occasional stops to view buildings, historical sites and landmarks. Bring water, a camera, and binoculars.

The IRT traverses the sites of the first anthracite-fueled Iron Company and the first Portland Cement Company in America, both of which contributed to the Industrial Revolution. No less than 23 historical sites and landmarks will be presented. This trail is a loop with an even surface of asphalt or packed millings and passes through several communities. The hike starts at the Whitehall Parkway Barn on Chestnut Street, just west of MacArthur Road by the traffic light at Sheetz.
