Great Shamokin Path

3.58 Miles

Trail Description

Tracing a section of the abandoned Rural Valley Railroad corridor the Great Shamokin Path parallels the Cowanshannock Creek for 3.5 miles. The eastern part of the trail, which is surfaced primarily with dirt and gravel, is most suitable for biking and jogging. The western section is mostly grass. Much of the trail features a lovely tree canopy that provides relief on a hot summer’s day. Wildlife can be seen along much of the trail, especially in the early morning, but watch out for the spiderwebs! The trail ends at the water treatment plant after crossing the Cowanshannock Creek.
