Susquehanna River Walk & Timber Trail Description

The Susquehanna River Walk follows the north and south shores of the river's West Branch, including two bridge crossings at Market Street and Maynard Street. The route, much of which was built on top of levees, provides an important connection to the river for residents of Williamsport, South Williamsport, and Loyalsock.

The looped section between the two bridges is known as the Timber Trail and offers interpretive signage about the lumber heritage of the region. Lumber-themed public art has also been placed along the trail, including "The Wood Hick," a life-sized sculpture of a lumber camp worker.

Parking and Trail Access

A parking lot is available on the east end of the trail at Water Tower Square (1000 Commerce Park Drive).

Susquehanna River Walk & Timber Trail Reviews

As described you might believe this trail is only a few miles near the city of Williamsport. It connects to many more miles of urban riding remaining almost entirely off roads. There are several connecting trails to the north, south and east. If you were to ride all of these connections in a single day you could find yourself riding upwards of 50 miles. I frequently ride this trial, to the north you pass several community parks, soccer club, farmers fields and wetlands where you often see wildlife, at the eastern connection you ride further along the north side of Susquehanna river passing boat launches, fisherman, kayakers, and other side trails at Canfield island, ending at Indian Park in Montoursville. The southern connection takes you the river through the community of Sout Williamsport and ends at the community park adjacent to the Little League International complex. A very extensive network of connecting urban trials with access to both nature and city scapes.

Really nice trail. right on the river.

This is a really nice walk right along the Susquehanna and crosses two bridges. Very popular among the Williamsport locals - tons of people on the walk along with us on a beautiful Fall day.
