Susquehanna River Water Trail - Middle Section - From Sunbury to Harrisburg, PA
Susquehanna River Water Trail - Middle Section
The Susquehanna River meanders 444 miles from its origin at Otsego Lake near Cooperstown, NY until it empties into the Chesapeake Bay at Havre de Grace, Md. The Susquehanna River Trail covers the middle stretch of the river - 55 miles from Sunbury downstream to Harrisburg.

Along this route, boaters, canoeists and kayakers can explore the great river and its diverse scenery and habitats. River otters, beavers and other mammals are sometimes seen from the river. In May, many birds dot the landscape as spring migration is at its peak throughout the trail. Birds of prey - such as hawks, eagles, osprey, vultures, and owls - show up along the ridges and throughout the river valley much of the year.

Please note that boating, canoeing, kayaking and other activities on rivers can be dangerous. Obtain a water trail map and guide in advance, plan your trip, and follow all safety precautions.

Hours: Access points to the Susquehanna River Trail are open from sunrise to sunset.
Fees: There are no fees to access the Susquehanna River Trail.
