The Iroquois Trail is scenic and remote, stretching about 2 miles through Tunkhannock, a gateway community to the Endless Mountains in northeastern Pennsylvania. The rail-trail follows the route of the Lehigh Valley Railroad's Montrose Branch, which began running in 1874 between Tunkhannock and Montrose.
Most of the trail is wooded and it has a few well-marked crossings of a country road that sees little traffic. The crushed stone pathway begins at the Bob Massaker Sports Complex, continues by Sunnyside Cemetery, and passes Marcy Pioneer Cemetery (dating back to 1797), which has a stone wall surrounding it. It then passes a trail parking lot and benches before taking a short steep climb up into the woods. Along the right side of the trail is a steep dropoff to Sunnyside Road, Route 6, and the Tunkhannock Creek. On the left are rocky cliffs. The incline continues to the end of the trail, where there is no access, so you’ll need to return back the way you came.
Iroquois Trail is located south of Tunkhannock, off Route 6. The trailhead parking area is paved and located along Sunnyside Road, near the Wyoming Branch of the American Red Cross of Susquehanna and Wyoming Counties (489 Grand Army Highway). Alternate parking and restrooms are available at the Bob Massaker Sports Complex (1 Sunnyside Road) next to Sunnyside Cemetery.
