We’ll travel across the top of Ostrum Ridge and down one of the area’s oldest roads (barely visible now) to the foundation of a stone barn whose walls were still standing in the 1970’s. We’ll meander near old quarries where rock was quarried for some Lehigh University buildings. There’s a lookout spot above the Lehigh River that also affords good views of Bethlehem and east Allentown. There are remnants of a park that was active in the 19th century. After looking at vernal pools, we’ll finish our hike with a steep walk back up to the parking lot.
