O&W Rail-Trail

32.9 Miles
Lackawanna, Susquehanna, Wayne

Trail Description

The O&W Rail-Trail begins in Simpson and runs parallel to the D&H for eight miles, with the Lackawanna River often running in between the two trails. The O&W passes through Simpson, Vandling, Browndale, Union Dale, Herrick Center, Orson and continues east to Hancock, NY and the Delaware River. The RTC (Rail-Trail Council) controls the first 8-miles of the O&W from Simpson to Stillwater Dam. The mid-section is privately owned and allows ATVs with trail passes. From Poyntelle north it is owned and regulated as low-maintenance roads by Preston and Buckingham Townships. Using both rail-trails, various loop trips are possible. Linkage to hiking trails and Panther’s Bluff, a 1,500-acre conservation area is possible from the O&W trail. The O&W is original rail bed surface, graded, but rough in areas.
