Today, the D&L Trail connects people to nature, culture, communities, recreation and our industrial heritage.

We are passionate about preserving the environment, sharing the culture of our region and positively impacting our communities. We are a diverse organization with the ability to connect people to unique experiences in nature and the environment, community and economic impact, health and recreation, history, preservation, and education. This unique merger makes us a reliable resource, able to connect visitors and residents to experiences they feel good about. Along with the National Canal Museum (an AAM accredited Smithsonian Affiliate), we make our home in Hugh Moore Park in Easton PA. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
