About the Trail Authority

The Union County Trail Authority (UCTA) was created by the Union County Board of Commissioners in 2018 to own and manage the Buffalo Valley Rail Trail and for the purpose of advancing future trail development.

UCTA is funded by a portion of the county hotel tax in partnership with the Susquehanna River Valley Visitors Bureau and through natural gas impact fees the county receives from the state for purposes of greenways, trails, and open space.

UCTA is governed by a five-member Board of Directors appointed by the Union County Commissioners.
