The multi-use Lackawanna River Heritage Trail (LRHT) follows Pennsylvania's Lackawanna River and when complete will be more than 40 miles. The trail begins at the confluence of the Lackawanna and Susquehanna rivers in Pittston, southwest of Scranton. The LRHT heads north to meet the Delaware and Hudson (D&H) Rail-Trail
in Simpson. The two trails continue together to Union Dale. From Union Dale north the D&H Rail-Trail carries on north to the New York State border.
The trail is not yet a continuous corridor, and the segments are broken down as follows:
Taylor (Depot Street) to Scranton (Dean Street): 6.1 miles (2.5 unimproved; 3.6 improved). The trail is a mix of levees, unimproved segments and the new Scranton Riverwalk.
Olyphant (Condella Park) to Archbald (Gilmartin Street): 4.3 miles improved rail-trail, aka the Mid-Valley Ontario and Western Railroad Trail (O&W Trail).
Mayfield (Old Plank Road) to Carbondale Township (Meredith Street): 0.7 mile of improved rail-trail.
Carbondale Section: 1+ mile of improved rail-trail between Enterprise Drive and the river from north of Dundaff Street north to Morse Avenue, where the trail meets the D&H Rail Trail (at Lord Avenue and Main Street).
