The Lackawanna River Heritage Trail (LRHT) is a multi-purpose trail that follows the Lackawanna River for forty miles in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The trail begins at the river’s confluence with the Susquehanna River at Duryea and Pittston in Luzerne County. It travels through Lackawanna County and joins the Delaware and Hudson (D&H) Rail-Trail in Simpson. The two trails continue together to Union Dale. From that point, the D&H Rail-Trail extends north to the New York State border.

The LRHT is a wonderful community asset. Many people use the trail throughout the year for walking and jogging, bicycling, enjoying nature, exercising their dog, and fitness activities
