Trails help protect and connect to green space.

One of the most beautiful things about living in the Lehigh Valley is our abundance of open outdoor space and access to it.

THE LINK is a critical part of this green space and shows us how we can successfully connect the beauty of the outdoors with a variety of urban, suburban, and rural landscapes and the people within them.

  • Open space is a priority of local residents—THE LINK helps ensure that this space remains intact and is accessible to all that wish to enjoy it
  • The Lehigh Valley has always been about a balance between industry and nature—THE LINK offers a sustainable way for quality of life and responsible economic development to continue to coexist in our region
  • All Lehigh Valley residents deserve an easy way to relax and "get away from it all"—THE LINK provides all of us with a direct connection to open space, wooded areas, streams, parks, hiking trails, and more
