Karl Stirner Arts Trail

The Karl Stirner Arts Trail was opened in 2012 as part of a $9 million state investment to revitalize the Bushkill Creek Corridor in Easton. The trail is located along the Bushkill Creek and serves to provide a critical nexus between Easton’s built and natural environments. It is also part of the larger 20-mile Two Rivers Trail network that connects 5 municipalities.

Anchored on its west end by the $80-million Simon Silk Mill Renovation project, which includes 165 residences and 20 commercial businesses, the trail then travels 2.2 miles east where it connects to Lafayette College's downtown arts campus. The trail provides year round programming for people of all ages and offers wonderful contemplative experiences with over 20 art installations situated in a beautiful natural environment. It truly is a unique and valuable resource that provides access to Easton's great downtown dining and tourism experiences as well as Easton’s iconic Centre Square where the original Declaration of Independence was read aloud in Public in 1776.
