Rail Trail

The picturesque Sussex Branch Rail Trail is built on the former line of the Erie Lackawanna Railroad. The Town of Newton hosts a 1.6 mile extension that invites you to walk, bike, horseback ride, and even cross-country ski during the winter months.  The Ribbon Cutting for this extension was held on October 17, 2021. 

Local Scout, Nathan Brottman, created the Sussex Branch Trail Gateway as his Eagle Scout project, which included planting trees, installing a bench, and adding an identification sign for the trail.
