Leheigh River Rafting

The Lehigh River, a tributary of the Delaware River, is a 103 mile (166 km) long river found in eastern Pennsylvania. The river flows in a highly curving course through valleys between ridges of the Appalachian Mountains.

Its lower course forms the heart of the Lehigh Valley, an historically important anthracite coal and steel-producing region of Pennsylvania.

The river rises in the Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania, in several ponds in southwestern Wayne County, approximately 15 miles (24 km) southeast of Scranton. It flows initially southwest, through southern Lackawanna County, through Francis E. Walter Reservoir. Near Middleburg, it turns south, following a zigzag course to Jim Thorpe, then southeast, past Lehighton. Southeast of Lehighton, it passes through Blue Mountain in a narrow opening called the Lehigh Gap.
