South Bethlehem Greenway

The Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN) joins the South Bethlehem Greenway at the intersection of Rt. 412 and the Minsi Trail Bridge on the south side of the City of Bethlehem, Northampton County. The South Bethlehem Greenway can also be accessed by crossing the Fahy Bridge (New Street). This paved urban trail provides access to many restaurants and cultural attractions such as the Banana Factory, SteelStacks-Artsquest Center, Sands Casino and a world class Skateplaza for skateboarding and BMX biking. The South Bethlehem Greenway follows the former Bethlehem-Philadelphia rail corridor and is planned to make a direct connection to the Saucon Rail Trail in Hellertown Borough.

For more information about this trail section refer to the PA Highlands Trail Network Feasibility Study #1.
