Everyone in the general public is encouraged and welcome to use the Susquehanna River Trail but please be aware:
WARNING TO ALL RIVER TRAIL USERS: Canoeing, kayaking, boating, camping and other river-related outdoor activities have inherent risks. The river environment (moving water, cold water, deep water, tricky currents, rocks, poison ivy, ticks, etc.), weather extremes (cold, heat, electrical storms, wind, etc.), and man –made structures (esp. dams) pose potential hazards. The river trail user should familiarize themselves with these hazards and have or obtain adequate skills to safely experience the river environment. Your safety is your responsibility!

James W. McNulty III, 68, of Atlanta, GA, died Monday, January 13, 2014, at home. His wife, Cheryl Ann Kilcullen, preceded him in death. Born in Scranton, son of the late Hortense Hagen McNulty and James McNulty II, he was a 1963 graduate of Scranton Prep, a graduate of the University of Scranton and received his law degree from Widener School of Law. He lived for many years in the Harrisburg/Hershey area. After retiring as the secretary of the Pennsylvania PUC, he moved to Atlanta to continue his development as an avid outdoorsman. His career as a talented golfer began in the 1950s. He garnered many honors and won numerous tournaments in the Scranton area. After leaving Scranton, he became a world class kayaker, traveling to many countries to test his skills. Along with golf and kayaking, he became a devoted and skilled fly fisherman and hunter. An early environmentalist, he was a member and served as the president of the Susquehanna River Trail Association.Surviving are a daughter, Shannon McNulty, Atlanta; and a sister, Susan McNulty Coyne, Shaker Heights, Ohio.
