Allentown, Pennsylvania Map

Hike straight out about 200 yards between and under 2-3 transmission towers till you come to an impressive size boulder...unfortunately covered with unimpressive graffiti. Then move on to another park.

nothing to see in the summer. boring

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.

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!

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!

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.

This is a very easy walking trail, but be aware that there are a couple of very smelly areas near the water that always smell like raw sewage.

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.
