River enthusiasts, canoeists and kayakers have another gorgeous access point to the West Branch of the Susquehanna River, this one overlooking a significant historic site: the Last Raft Crash Site at Muncy Heritage Park and Nature Trail.

Muncy Historical Society built the trail, another phase of the organization’s Master Plan for its Heritage Park and Nature Trail.  Partnering with the Lycoming County Commissioners and the County Planning and Community Development office, the Historical Society secured funding through the County’s Legacy Fund Account – a designated allocation of Act 13 funds provided to the County by the Public Utility Commission specifically for parks. 

With this funding, along with a significant financial commitment from the Society’s own board of directors, the soft landing site for small boats such as canoes and kayaks following the West Branch Water Trail has been completed from the river’s edge to the entrance of the park.

The scope of the project included many elements, including GIS mapping of the site, as well as securing a Department of Environmental Protection General Permit (GP-2) requiring notification of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineering.

Hands on Heritage provided a Phase 1 Archaeological Survey of the one-third acre prior to development, enabling landscape architects at BSA / LA to construct a 200-foot-long, gravel trail, providing canoe and kayak river access from Pepper Street in Muncy Creek Township to the West Branch Susquehanna River.
