Monocacy Way and Bethlehem Trail Loop

Monocacy Way Trail runs along the Monocacy Creek between Illick’s Mill and the D&L Trail in the City of Bethlehem, Northampton County. Portions of the trail are paved but most of it is currently natural surface. Trail users need to be aware that the crossing at Schoenersville Road is not marked or otherwise improved with safety features or signals. The City of Bethlehem has received DCNR grant funding for trail improvements for Monocacy Way to include resurfacing, realignment, and signage. This project should begin in 2018.
