The Lackawanna Heritage Valley Authority (LHVA) and the Lackawanna County Commissioners officially opened a recently completed section of the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail in Mayfield Borough and Carbondale Township with a ribbon cutting ceremony held on Monday, Sept. 24. The new trail follows the west bank of the Lackawanna River for more than one mile. It curves through the woods, joins the walkway next to St. Rose Academy and continues back into the woods. The trail is graded and surfaced with an all-purpose material suitable for walking, jogging and cycling. It is the first section of the trail to be completed since the 3.5-mile Mid Valley trail was built nine years ago. For more information, call Colleen Carter at 963-6730 ext. 8211.
