The DV Chapter has a long history of involvement in building, maintaining, and advocating for trails throughout our region. Advocacy efforts led by Malcolm White in the 80’s led to the Lehigh Tunnel on the Pennsylvania Turnpike Northeast Extension being twinned, rather than running a road through Lehigh Gap as had been proposed. The creation of the Perkiomen Trail in the 90’s was due in part to advocacy efforts spearheaded by Kent Johnson and Jane Shepard that involved many DV members. Trails from Valley Forge to Delaware Water Gap, including a section of the AT, have been the focus of volunteer efforts by DV Chapter members. In recent years, the chapter has been active in efforts to create the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network, which will extend the Highlands Trail (130 miles in New York and New Jersey) along the length of the Pennsylvania Highlands, from the Delaware River at Riegelsville, PA south to the Maryland border in south-central PA.
