Trail Feasibility Study

The draft report is now available for Pike County’s grant-funded Trail Feasibility Study focusing on the Lackawaxen River corridor, between Hawley and Lackawaxen. The study seeks to determine the physical and legal feasibility to construct and maintain a multi-use trail spanning approximately 14 miles from Hawley Borough, at the Wayne/Pike County Line, along the Stourbridge Rail Line, the Towpath, and the Lackawaxen River, to the Village of Lackawaxen.

The second public meeting on this project will be held on Monday, June 6, 2022, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m., at the Pike County Training Center, located at 135 Pike County Boulevard, in Lords Valley.

The purpose of the meeting is for the consultant, Woodland Design Associates, to provide an overview of the draft study, and to address the citizen questions posed at the first public meeting held in July 2021.
