New geological guide to Northwest river trail offers hikers a fun, rocky tour

The 14-mile Northwest Lancaster County River Trail along the Susquehanna River has been tremendously popular since it opened in 2014. And for good reason. It's a beautiful path along the river with such varied attractions as Chickies Rock, the White Cliffs of Conoy, remnants of great iron furnaces, canal locks, an eagle nest and the river towns of Columbia and Marietta.

Now, trail users — 120,000 last year — can have a fuller experience with the publication this week of "Geologic Guide to the Northwest Lancaster County River Trail" by Jeri Jones, a York County geologist who loves to share his passion with the public.
