SPARTA TOWNSHIP — Brad Scouten, 13, of Spartansburg, is learning about nature, the outdoors and outdoor activities, and he has a great resource to help him.

Scouten has been on the East Branch Trail in Spartansburg. The East Branch Trail is the only rail to trail in Pennsylvania that is half paved for in-line skating, walking, bike-riding and running and half dirt-and-gravel to accommodate horses and horse-drawn Amish buggies.
