The Paulinskill Valley Trail Committee
Paulinskill Valley and Sussex Branch
The creation of the Rail-Trail Wildflower Reference Books was made possible with a grant from National Recreational Trails and matching funds from the Paulinskill Valley Trail Committee. Marjorie Barrett, the author, extends her thanks to Lynn Groves Lussier, the Resource Interpretive Specialist, Natural Resources, Kittatinny Valley State Park, for her constructive comments.
This Rail-Trail Wildflower Reference Book is meant to be a quick identification resource for trail users. A Peterson or Newcomb guide to wildflowers contains more detailed information.
The flowers in this reference may be seen from either of the two rail-trails of Kittatinny Valley State Park. They are the Paulinskill Valley Trail and the Sussex Branch Trail.
