The South Mountain Woodland Path is designed for visually impaired

The South Mountain Woodland Path opened at The Shelter House in Emmaus April 15. The 575-foot path was constructed by Emmaus High School sophomore and Troop 71 Life Scout Patrick Hunter as a part of his Eagle Scout project.

The Shelter House, 601 S. Fourth St., is a two-story Colonial-style cabin built in 1734, making it one of the oldest inhabited buildings in the Lehigh Valley.

The trail is a sensory path, meaning it is designed for the visually impaired.
