Following the defunct and abandoned Lehigh Valley Railroad corridor, the Odessa-Hector Rail Trail stretches for 2.5 miles through the woods and fields between the Town of Montour and the Village of Odessa.
The wide rail-trail has a surface of dirt, grass, and gravel. It is open for a variety of uses including walking, biking, horseback riding, and snowmobiling. The use of utility task vehicles (UTVs) on the trail is reserved for those with limited mobility. ATVs and other motorized vehicles are not permitted on the trail. Dogs are welcome provided they remain leashed. There is plenty of trail signage.
In Montour, access the northern end on Hayes Road (street signs show Hayes Hill Road), less than a half mile west of where the road meets Route 7. In Odessa, access the southern end on Texas Hollow Road between where it meets Lower Foots Hill Road and Railroad Street.
Privately funded from local businesses and organizations with help from individual volunteers, the rail-trail is owned and maintained by the Village of Odessa.
The northern trailhead on Hayes Road has a small area with space for a few vehicles. Parking may be available on Texas Hollow Road and Railroad Street near the southern end.
