Rep. Jonathan Fritz (R-Susquehanna/Wayne) announced today that Northeast PA Snow Trails Inc. will be receiving a $54,400 state grant from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), which will go towards preparing a trail study for the development of approximately 13 miles of the former Ontario & Western Railroad corridor for ATV use.
“I am pleased that in the near future we will be using existing assets to enhance the amount of recreation opportunities here in the northeast,” said Fritz. “This is an exciting method of observing our natural beauty and experiencing all that our diverse terrain has to offer.”
DCNR’s ATV grant program can help to buy land; develop plans and surveys; construct and maintain ATV trails; buy equipment; and conduct educational programs relating to ATV use.
