Amenities

One of the Montour Trail’s many gates, in Robinson Township, designed and built by a local Eagle Scout

There are a number of all-important water fountains and portable toilets along the Montour Trail as well as picnic shelters, strategically placed benches, pop-up gardens, found-object sculptures, and memorials. You can even find black raspberries along the Trail edge, ripe for the picking in summer.

Amenities chart for easy planning
