ABOUT THE TRAIL: Formerly a railroad bed, this once forgotten piece of nature is being brought back to life. The completed portion of the Susquehanna Warrior Trail consists of 11-miles of the old Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad. The trail passes through some of the most scenic portions of the
Susquehanna River corridor where one can walk, bike, or run. Residents and guests of the Wyoming Valley can enjoy the handicap accessible trail year round. By ultimately linking with
two other local trails and 13 public parks, the SWT will create connections from one green space to another.
