New Section of D&H Rail-Trail to Open


Submitted Article

The Rail-Trail Council of NEPA will celebrate recent improvements to six and a half miles of a trail between Herrick and Ararat in Susquehanna County on Thursday, Oct. 18. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 9:30 am where the trail crosses Ararat Road southwest of Thompson.

The event will feature an official dedication, remarks by funders and public officials, including Sen. Lisa Baker and Rep. Jonathan Fritz, refreshments, and an invitation to “hit the trail” on bikes or on foot.

The Herrick to Ararat D&H Rail-Trail Project was funded via the Transportation Alternative Program and the Herrick Township supervisors; the PA DCNR Environmental Stewardship Fund’s Recreational Trails Program; the PA Commonwealth Financing Authority’s Trails, Greenways and Recreation Program; and trail users and recreational supporters within the community.

About Author

Managing Editor of, dedicated to providing interesting information about life in the Endless Mountains region of northern Pennsylvania. The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
