Carbondale Riverwalk to Open in 2017

In 2017, Lackawanna Heritage Valley (LHV) will open the Carbondale Riverwalk, a 1.2 mile section of trail that will give Lackawanna River Heritage Trail users a direct link from Carbondale to the D&H Rail-Trail. BikeCarbondale, a free bike share program hosted by LHV, will launch in conjunction with the grand opening of the Carbondale Riverwalk. LHV is also developing a 2.2-mile pathway in Fell Township, beginning at Simpson and continuing to Vandling Borough. Upon completion of this section, users will be able to follow the trail 62 miles from Taylor to the New York State border. In addition, design and construction of a new 1.1 mile section of the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail (LRHT) will connect Dickson City to Olyphant. The new section also will provide access for those who run, walk and bicycle in the area, and will provide direct access to the Lackawanna River for fishing. These are just a few of the exciting projects underway along the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail. For updates, be sure to visit
