The Paulinskill Valley Trail Committee

 

About Us
 

 About Us

 

The Paulinskill Valley Trail (27 miles) and the Sussex Branch Trail (20 miles) are part of Kittatinny Valley State Park. The tracks have been removed from these rail trails, leaving a pleasant cinder bed path. Except at a few road crossings, the trails are level and offer easy walking, cycling, and horseback riding. Anyone interested in nature or railroad history will enjoy using these two rail trails.

The Signal
The PVTC publishes "The Signal"  newsletter two times a year. The Signal usually contains interesting historical stories about various parts of the Paulinskill Valley Trail and Sussex Branch Trail.

  

Get Involved 

 

The PVTC schedules hikes/XC skiing/horse back riding/bike tours, and other group events through out the year. Generally, events begin at at the telephone number on the "Contact Us" webpage.
