SHAMOKIN — The Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area (AOAA) is proposing using an existing dirt trail on a hillside west of Shamokin Creek to serve as a portal into the city.

Dave Porzi, director of operations for AOAA, presented to city council at their regular meeting Monday a map of the proposed route, which would start east of the Raspberry Hill Complex and terminate on an improved lot next to the former Holy Trinity Episcopal Church.
