Currently a trail gap remains between the eastern end of the South Bethlehem Greenway and the northern end of the Saucon Rail Trail.
Conceptual Highlands Trail Route
A gap remains to be completed between the City of Bethlehem and the Borough of Hellertown in order to connect the South Bethlehem Greenway and the Saucon Rail Trail. The project requires a trail easement or fee simple acquisition on property owned by Norfolk Southern Railroad. If the Norfolk Southern rail corridor is used for the trail, the new trail would be roughly 1.8 miles in length.
