The Northwest Lancaster County River Trail runs along the Susquehanna River from Falmouth PA to Columbia, PA. All of the trail on the section we are riding is now paved, and the recent trail project is completed. The trail is located between the Susquehanna River and Pennsylvania Route 441. We will meet at 8:45 a.m. at the Falmouth Boat Launch on the west side of route 441 below Middletown, and below Three Mile Island (Collins Rd., and Route 441 River Rd). The ride will begin promptly at 9:00 AM.

Helmets are required. If you need to answer a phone call while riding, stop and pull over to answer the call. In-the-ear listening devices are not allowed. This is an out-and-back ride.

Bring water and snack. We will take a rest stop when we arrive in Columbia at the Columbia Crossings River Trails Center (restrooms, picnic tables, and a great view of the river). Other "potty stops" as needed.

The forecast for Thursday morning at the ride's start is 68 degrees.
