* The Knoxville Incline Greenway

A gravel, timber-lined foot trail marks the entrance from Brosville. The bridge crosses over where the Knoxville Incline ran from 1890 to 1960. Over the years, SSSNA members have pulled several hundred tires from the ravine as part of an area clean up. Now a parklet honors its history. From the bridge’s mid-span, you can see heavy stone retaining walls below and the trough through which the incline ran. The Greenway was created in 2016 in partnership with GTECH Strategies as part of its ReClaim South program. It continues down the Welsh Way stairs. The project is on the border with Allentown and Allentown CDC donated the trees planted in the parklet.
