Welcome to Rail Trails!

Rail-Trail Council

Renewing Northeast Pennsylvania’s historic pathways as recreational trails for all to enjoy…

Bike the Trail

Biking the Trail Kickoff…
The D&H Trail received PA 2021 Trail of the Year, so to celebrate we will get things in motion with a bike to farm/table experience and a virtual biking/walking challenge for the whole month of May.

Be Aware! Hunting season is now open! Wear orange while out on the trails. Be safe and have fun.


The Rail-Trail Council of NEPA, Inc. is a non-profit organization developing recreational trails in northeastern Pennsylvania. The office is located in the Borough of Union Dale, Susquehanna County, in the Cables Store Building, alongside the D&H Rail-Trail. The RTC has over 1400 members who support the organization with membership dollars and volunteer hours. The Board is made up of 30 members, a part-time executive director, and a part-time program manager.


A promotional video of the D&H Rail-Trail, the Council and trail events was made possible with a grant from Wayne County Tourism.

D&H Distance Run

A half-marathon and 5K race is held every year, the Sunday after Labor Day on the D&H Rail-Trail in Forest City.  It’s an out & back run on the trail and a perfect training run in preparation for the Steamtown Marathon

D&H Rail Trail User Survey

A survey of trail users was conducted for two years, concentrating on winter users and the economic impact made on the local communities.

Projects in Motion

The Council has begun a capital campaign to raise funds for numerous projects underway on our trail system.  Many projects require matching funds for grants.
