March 12, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — During the warmer months, many residents of Punxsy enjoy a tranquil evening walking on the Mahoning Shadow Trail. But many do not know that maintenance for the trail is a year-long, ongoing project.

The Mahoning Shadow Trail is the Punxsy chapter of the Rails-to-Trails Association, which runs along Mahoning Creek for most of the trail, and passing many scenic sites along the way, such as the coke ovens.

As many know, Rails-to-Trails is a nationwide project that turns old railroads into trails for users to walk, run, bike or cross-country ski.
