Rails to Trails of Central Pennsylvania strives to create an enjoyable atmosphere for people of all ages and of varying interests. The organization does this primarily through the conversion of abandoned railroad corridors, turning them into recreational trails for use by the public. We strive to utilize these resources by emphasizing their historic, natural and recreational aspects.

Rails to Trails of Central Pennsylvania has NO paid staff and thus the organization relies heavily on volunteer amenities, fund-raising and trail maintenance programs. Rails To Trails of Central Pennsylvania is a non-profit, charitable organization as qualified under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax-exempt to the extent permitted by law.

Our featured trail, the Lower Trail is open to the public, free of charge, for hiking, jogging, bicycling, horseback riding, bird-watching, cross-country skiing, and other non-motorized recreation. The Trail also provides access to the river for fishing, kayaking and canoeing.
