    Where to ride around Scranton on Sunday?

    I am going to be in Scranton and want to go for a ride on Sunday. Would like to ride for an hour/hour and a half or so. I have ridden at Merli once before, I liked it and the map was good and the trails pretty well marked. I would like to try somewhere else, but don't want to spend the entire ride trying to figure out where I am going? Anyone have suggestions for the best area with the best marked trails and/or map? Any input is appreciated.

    Good job!

    I'm with Neil on that:

    Lackawanna has many trails and is a great place to hit!

    Excellent Suggestion

    Thanks for the suggestion. I had a good time, Parked at the lot on Rowlands Road and took Abington to Kennedy up to Cole Road. Started up Bassett path across Wallsville Road, but the weather was starting to threaten, so I went back the way I came and did a couple of laps on Lee and Kennedy and then down along the lake. Nice place, well marked and good maps. Thanks again.
