Allentown has done a terrific job maintaining the gem of Lehigh Valley Parks. The wall collapse was repaired with meticulous detail, the water smell issues have been eliminated, and the Lights in the Parkway are back and better than ever for 2016. Lucky to live here!

Sad. Was hoping for a nice view. Got beautiful rocks covered in graffiti.
The best Allentown trail. So much to do and see. it is also very well maintained. This place is only a mile from center city and offers do much. Fly fishing, disc golf, biking, exercise spots and tons of wild life. Great place to go after work with your family.
Not really a "Trail", more a path to some large boulders overlooking a valley. Lots of graffiti and generally dirty with trash and drug paraphernalia scattered around.
As an FYI, you have to walk into the woods from the parking area, to the left of a fenced area. Not clearly marked when I was there.
This would indeed be a family friendly trail; very serene. I completed it with ease with a jogging stroller so no major dips/damage to trail/not too steep. This trail is very clean and maintained & in the early AM of the weekday it has adult travelers (obviously) but very peaceful. There were trout fisherman by the river & quite a few gave hellos- nice atmosphere to jog/run.
