April 10th is Trail Cleanup Day!!

April 10th is Trail Cleanup Day!!

It has been a long and cold winter but Spring is finally here! HOORAY!

As the temps rise and the flowers start to poke up from their winter slumber, the rail trail is waiting for your return too. We know you love the trail and now is your chance to show that love. On APRIL 10TH the Trail Authority is hosting the 2021 Spring Trail Cleanup. Help us get the trail looking its best for the coming season of walks, rides and strolls.

We know that YOU don’t litter on the Trail, but somebody does and the Trail needs you on APRIL 10TH starting at 9 AM to pick a section of trail and do your best at cleaning up the litter. Meet at either the Lewisburg Trailhead near the Miller Center OR the Mifflinburg Trailhead on 5th street. There you can grab some bags, a grabber. You will be assigned a section of trail to cover and when you’re done, just return any equipment you borrowed by noon with the knowledge that YOU helped preserve the beauty of one of Union County’s favorite public spaces.

This even has a rain date of April 17th. Check for more updates and details on the BVRT Facebook page: BVRT Facebook

Trail Manners

If the Buffalo Valley Rail Trail seems busier than prior years it’s not your imagination. The number of people bicycling, jogging and walking on the trail is 75% higher than 2019. The Trail Authority reminds everyone to be courteous while enjoying the trail. The Rails to Trails Conservancy has 6 Golden Rules for safe trail use. Check out the first one in this video below about maintaining safe speeds.

August Board Meeting Virtual

The August UCTA Board meeting scheduled for 9:00 AM on Thursday, August 20th, 2020 will be held remotely due to an increase in COVID-19 cases across the region. Members of the public wanting to participate can contact us for more information.

Restrooms Going Green

The restrooms on the Buffalo Valley Rail Trail are now open. Trail users should follow all CDC and PA Department of Health guidance when on the trail and while using any trail related facilities.
