One of best trails in the area. Good for walking, running, walking the dog or biking. Mostly flat with a little elevation outside of Hellertown. Follows an old Railroad line. Currently maintained for about 6 miles from Hellertown to Coopersburg.

It goes from Hellertown to Coopersburg about six por seven miles. Flat because it is an old railroad bed. There is water at beginning, end, and in the middle.

It is so nice that the Saucon Rail Trail was put in and that it continues to grow. It has such a picturesque setting and I feel very safe going out on the trail alone. I wish there were more parking places along the way...More
