To help you get around, the Lackawanna Heritage Valley Authority recommends two guidebooks to local attractions:

Lackawanna River Heritage Trail Guidebook
($19.95, Heritage Valley Press, 120 pages)

The new Guidebook to the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail and the D & H Rail-Trail is hot off the presses!  This handy, spiral-bound pocket compendium not only provides detailed information about navigating the entire seventy mile Lackawanna River Heritage Trail corridor from New York State to Pittston (and the reverse!) and GPS coordinates, but it also offers interesting and useful information and photos about the history, culture and significant sites of the Lackawanna Heritage Valley National and State Heritage Area.    
A History Set in Stone: A Guide to Downtown Scranton Architecture (Complimentary, published by the Lackawanna Heritage Valley Authority and Lackawanna Historical Society, 20 pages)
A concise twenty-page annotated walking tour of the City of Scranton, this booklet provides maps, tour routes, and interesting details about the city’s beautiful commercial and residential buildings. Available at the Lackawanna County Visitors’ Center on Montage Mountain (off I-81 in Moosic), several downtown businesses, and local historic sites.
