, right here in the borough at the top of, you guessed it, Lechauweki Avenue, offers short, pretty, steep trails surrounding the pond. Explore both history and nature close to home
Surrounding the perimeter of Dodson Fields
(located above the pool) are a variety of trails. To the east they rise above the Lehigh River circling around the City of Bethlehem reservoir and the back of St. Luke’s Hospital. To the west they eventually intersect the Salisbury Wildlife preserve. A steep hill starting at the end of Graham Street leads the walker down through beautiful vistas on either side, eventually ending in a walk along the southern part of the Lehigh River.
