My favorite local run ... pick your distance.

I grew up in Allentown and this is the first time I made it here. I can't believe what I have missed!

Walked about 1.5 miles today with a bad foot. Loved the sounds of birds and airplanes taking off from Queen City Airport. Looking forward to more walks in the parkway!!

It's a very short and easy hike, go left around the fence to get to the rocks! The rocks are massive, worth it if you are a local. Maybe not worth a long drive to get there, but if you have nothing else to do it's worth it. Spend about an hour there

Very quick but very neat grafittied large boulders to climb which made it fun. In the winter you have a great view of the valley since no leaves block the view.

Didn't find much trail but some cool boulders

Awesome place to run or do a variety of family activities. There's not much elevation for a real hike in the woods, but it's exceptional in every other aspect. You almost forget you're in Allentown. Except sometimes the smell of sewage will smack you in the face near the j pipes. Oh, and they mowed down 2-3 acres of trees a few years ago. Also, the bathrooms are kind of rapey. Still in Allentown.

This is one of my favorite go to hikes that with its numerous cross-overs you can tailor to your exact duration. I normally do the 5 mile, but look forward to going back in the spring/summer/fall and doing the longer stretch. And the stream is so tempting, I'm definitely going to fly fish it in the summer.

Gorgeous scenery!
