Activities & Features


Railway Avenue Trail is an easy family friendly hike in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area that follows in a old railroad bed. This hike is located in the middle section of the park. Rangers say "for a few years in the mid-nineteenth century, Pennsylvania was home to more miles of railroad track than all the other states in the Union put together.” Along the way hikers should listen for songbirds and keep an eye peeled for ample wildlife. This trail is dog friendly, but your pup must be on leash. There are campgrounds nearby.
