To Start from Bowman Field;
From Route 15 Northbound take the W 3rd St exit and turn left. Turn right on Arch St and right again on W 4th St. Cross over Lycoming Creek and take your first left into Bowman Field. The trail may be accessed by traveling back along 4th St to the dyke where the trail crosses.
From Route 15 Southbound take the W 4th St exit and turn left. Cross over Lycoming Creek and take your first left into Bowman Field. The trail may be accessed by traveling back along 4th St to the dyke where the trail crosses.
The Lycoming Creek Bikeway travels between Hepburnville in the north to Williamsport in the south following closely Lycoming Creek. Native Americans used this pathway, which they called the Lagahani Trail, as part of a major transportation route between central Pennsylvania and the towns of Corning and Elmira, New York. Later Penn Central built a rail line on the corridor. For more information visit; LYCOMING CREEK BIKEWAY .
Starting from W 3rd St; The open, paved trail heads north atop a dyke for the Lycoming Creek. You pass by an old RR bridge on your left as the trail travels above the creek. Cross W 4th St at 0.5 miles where you may access the Bowman Field parking lot. Pass by the Bowman Field Stadium and come to Memorial Ave at 0.8 miles. Turn left crossing the creek, travel underneath Route 15 and turn right to rejoin the trail. The trail now travels along a commercial/industrial corridor below Route 15. Come to Mill Lane at 1.5 miles where you'll need to head right back underneath Route 15. This was as far as I checked out. The trail continues north below Route 15 passing by sports fields. Cross over Bottle Run at 2.2 miles and Lycoming Creek at 2.6 miles. Here the trail travels past open fields and residential lots before passing by a spur trail on your left at 3.4 miles to Heshbon Park parking lot. Cross Lycoming Creek at 3.9 miles and again at 5.2 miles before passing by more sports fields and coming to W Creek Rd after 5.3 miles in Hepburnville.
