The Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area (AOAA) Authority and Northumberland County are undertaking a Rail Trail Connectivity Master Plan for a proposed 36 linear mile trail that will be located along the former Philadelphia and Reading Railroad corridor.

The proposed rail trail will be a non-motorized, multi-use recreational corridor with the goal of ultimately linking the City of Sunbury with Mount Carmel Borough in Northumberland County. The trail will be owned and managed by the AOAA, serving as a new component of AOAA’s public recreational facilities serving residents and visitors looking for non-motorized activities, such as walking and biking. 

As a key part of the planning process, public input is critical to understand the community’s vision, needs, and desires for this public amenity. Take our short online survey to help us understand your preferences for future development of the rail trail.
