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.
