Dust off that cabin fever and catch the contagious lust for life! Springtime in Northeastern Pennsylvania brings excitement with each bird’s chirp. Grab some fresh air as you blaze the trails within our parks, or test your limits as you try out our expert mountain biking trails. Looking for a slower speed? Go for a stroll along our freshly paved rails-to-trails bike and walking path and take in the beautiful Lackawanna River’s scenic view. While along the river, be sure to keep your eyes peeled; the American Bald Eagle has been spotted along our paths as well!
