Jordan Creek Greenway

Under the leadership of Wildlands Conservancy, the Jordan Creek Greenway is a regional conservation initiative connecting communities, natural landscapes, and open space through the heart of Lehigh County. An estimated 14-mile, multi-use trail is planned to connect the City of Allentown to Trexler Nature Preserve, through local parks and natural areas along the Jordan Creek corridor. This continuous greenway is designed to preserve the natural resources of the corridor while providing recreational and environmental benefits to the community.

The Jordan Creek Greenway is owned and managed by Lehigh County and the municipalities surrounding the Jordan Creek. This linear corridor will connect five existing county and municipal parks, while offering a variety of recreational opportunities including hiking, biking, fishing, and wildlife viewing.
