CVRTC Presentations

Preserving the beauty and history is the mission of the Cumberland Valley Rails-to-Trails Council. CVRTC has developed 11 miles of the former CVRR into an improved multi-use trail between Newville and Shippensburg. Enthusiasts can enjoy walking, jogging, bicycling, horseback riding and other non-motorized recreational uses. CVRTC also recently purchased the old RR corridor between Newville and Carlisle; a master plan has been completed and we are now seeking funding to start development.
