D&L completed a Phase II Corridor Analysis to determine the best route to connect.

Oliver Mills to Mountain Top – Engineering

D&L was awarded DCNR funds to engineer and permit this section. Engineering work is underway and working to apply for the necessary permits.


This proposed trail will travel through the wooded mountains south of the City of Wilkes-Barre. Users will find this a quiet and shady section of forested trail. The highlight of this section will be the Seven Tubs Nature Area, a series of large pools carved by the free flowing water of Wheelbarrow Run. Seven Tubs Nature Area is accessible by a spur trail for hiking only, no bikes allowed.
