December, 2022 – The Lackawanna River Heritage Trail

The Lackawanna River Heritage Trail is a storied route that travels over 35 miles along the Lackawanna River, eventually connecting to the D&H Trail and stretching over 70 miles.


November, 2022 – The Susquehanna Warrior Trail

Through rolling meadows, dense forests, and industrial cities, the rail bed along the Susquehanna River was a central and critical part of our local history. Although the rail line is no longer utilized, the Susquehanna Warrior Trail is a unique remnant of what was, offering a recreational opportunity and a mode of transportation along our beautiful, historic river.


October, 2022 – Countryside Conservancy Preserves

Nestled just beyond the borders of Lackawanna State Park are 6 quiet Preserves managed by the Countryside Conservancy. These mostly untouched tracts of wilderness are the perfect spot to find beautiful native plants, towering trees, and active wildlife.


September – Van Scott Nature Reserve

After a hot summer, signs of Autumn are already peaking out as August ends; and there’s no better place to enjoy the cool breeze, changing leaves, and the lively wildlife than the Van Scott Nature Reserve.


August, 2022 – Cliff Trail at Salt Springs State Park

Along the northern reach of PA Route 29, just 10 minutes away from the New York border, lies the remote and beautiful Salt Springs State Park. Salt Springs is a rustic park with 15 miles of trails woven through 405 acres of land owned by the state and 437 acres owned and managed by the nonprofit organization Friends of Salt Springs Park.
