A nice easy walk along an old railroad grade This is a nice walk along an old Railroad bed and canal. There is not a lot to discuss, the trail is well marked and gentle.

Saw deer. ...and lots of deer ticks, so take precautions.

I liked the trail. Very loud at first from traffic when you’re right along side of I-80, but then after that it’s better.

To find the trail: If you know where the Bloomsburg Rail-Trail ends (outside of town, in the large parking area next to the Steve Shannon warehouse), this trail is straight across the road (Millville Rd, which turns into Iron St in town) at the far end of the grassy lot (which is also next to a different warehouse or large garage structure). There was a pole gate across the entrance. (Or skip these instructions and just use the GPS function on this app!)

A couple of trees partially blocking the path here and there, probably from the recent storm. And trickles of water running across the trail at points, probably more than a trickle after storms.

Enjoyed this walk. No hills, flat surface. Makes a good running path.

Difficult to find an entrance. May get more difficult as new houses are under construction. Walk down to the water.
