TRAILS ON PRESERVES

Countryside Conservancy manages 510 acres of lands and waters to protect their conservation value. Most of these acres are open to the public for visitation, and many have trails. Collectively, we contribute 5.2 miles of singletrack hiking & biking trails to the Lackawanna State Park/ Countryside Conservancy Trail System. We thank our many volunteers, especially the Lackawanna State Park Trail Crew, for the countless hours they have put in on trail construction and maintenance!

Please note that Conservancy trails are for non-motorized use only and are open from dawn to dusk.

Little Rocky Glen Trail – The preserve is located between Tunkhannock and Factoryville, just off of US 6, along Lithia Valley Road. There is a new gravel parking lot on the right, if driving from US 6, before the new concrete bridge.
