Currently, over 10 miles of the Buffalo Valley Rail Trail are complete. The trail runs between Lewisburg and Mifflinburg, and interpretive signs relate the region's history. The trail is mostly paved at both ends but the middle section has a gravel surface. Lewisburg is home to Bucknell University and supports a vibrant and quaint downtown area, with eateries, bike shops and other boutique retail popular with trail users.
The trail had a quick start thanks to the support of the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, who awarded a matching grant for the acquisition of the 60-foot-wide abandoned corridor and an additional $3.7 million in federal monies made available through the Federal Highway Transportation Enhancements Program. These grants, along with contributions from local citizens and Union County, have made the Buffalo Valley Trail a reality for all to appreciate.
Plans call for continuing the trail across the Susquehanna River along the trestle into Montandon.
To access the Buffalo Valley Rail Trail, you can park at the Community Park in Mifflinburg along N. 5th Street between Hickory and Thompson streets.
Additional parking can be found in Vicksburg at the intersection of the trail and Beaver Run Road (T422). At the east end of the trail, you can park at Hufnagle Park on Market Street (Lewisburg).
All the trailheads feature restrooms as well.
