Lykens Valley Rail Trail is approximately half-way complete with 9 miles of trail open out of 20 miles planned. Those 9 miles are available in three disconnected segments. In Millersburg, a 0.4-mile segment of trail runs north-south between the Susquehanna River and River Street, while another section of about 3 miles traces the southern side of Wiconisco Creek.
Farther east, the longest contiguous section of the trail runs for nearly 6 miles through Lykens and Wiconisco to Williamstown. This section of the trail meanders through state game lands and a pleasant wooded corridor.
In Lykens, restrooms and water fountains are available at the Northern Dauphin Library (683 Main Street, Lykens) during its hours of operation. The Lykens Valley Rail Trail connects right behind the library.
In Millersburg, restrooms and water are available at the north end of Riverfront Park, which is near the intersection of River St & Moore St.
Unfortunately as of January 2019, the last remaining volunteer has resigned. The trail is still worth visiting, but it is unlikely that the remaining segments will ever be fully completed.
Parking is available at a number of locations along the trail.
In Lykens, there is a parking area at the end of S. 2nd Street just west of where it meets S Edward St. Another option is the Northern Dauphin Library (683 Main Street, Lykens), which allows trail users to park in its lot. The Lykens Valley Rail Trail connects right behind the library and parking is available 24/7. There is a third parking lot at Arch St & N 2nd St in Lykens, just north of the library.
On the west end of Wiconisco, park along Arch Street by the ball field.
In Millersburg, park by Myo Park (S Market St) just across the pedestrian bridge or at multiple spots along Riverfront Park on Keystone St and on River St, which have accessible parking.
