The Hoover-Mason Trestle (HMT) at Steel Stacks in Bethlehem takes visitors to places where very few could walk in years past- a stroll among the blast furnaces that distinguish the skyline of South Bethlehem.   Actually, it was train cars moving along the trestle since 1907, connecting the ore yards with the blast furnaces.  Opened in the summer of 2015, the elevated park allows you to explore from the visitor center, along the Steel Stacks campus, to the Sands Casino.

Along the scenic walk that sits 46 ft above ground, landscaping, benches and signs with historical information make the walkway part park, part museum.  The walkway is free, but guests can stop in the visitor center for additional information, listening devices, and tour information.
