The History of the NEPA Rail-Trails Council
The Rail-Trail Council of Northeastern Pennsylvania is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation begun in 1991 to attempt the purchase of local abandoned rail beds. It began as a very small grass-roots organization and now has over 1400 members and supporters. The Board meets monthly at area restaurants and the public is invited. A quarterly newsletter keeps members and local citizens informed of the progress of the organization and trail improvements.

Lynn Conrad, Rail-Trail Project Manager, welcomed everyone and, referring to the recently renovated 10 mile stretch of trail, said “This is just a peek at what a real Rail-Trail will look like. We are still not there yet, but we are on our way.”
