Enola Low Grade Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Enola Low-Grade Trail (formerly the Atglen-Susquehanna Trail) is open for nearly 29 miles in disconnected segments between the Susquehanna River and Atglen in southeastern Pennsylvania. It follows an abandoned right-of-way of the old Atglen and Susquehanna Branch, one of several branch lines of the Pennsylvania Railroad that linked Atglen with the Harrisburg area.

The trail runs through several townships and each manages its own section, so trail conditions may vary among them. In some places there is heavy ballast where wide tires are recommended if you’re biking. In other places the trail has been improved with crushed limestone.

Its newest addition, which opened in August 2013, is a beauty with towering cliffs on one side and river vistas on the other. It extends the trail 5.25 miles further west following the Susquehanna from an old railroad trestle over the Conestoga River to Manor Township. Conestoga and Manor townships hope to one day refurbish the bridge into a pedestrian crossing to link the rail-trail segments on either side of the river.


Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at many points along the trail, listed here west to east:

  • Manor Township: a new trailhead with spaces for about 60 cars is accessible from Route 441 at the base of Turkey Point.
  • Conestoga Township: parking and an informational kiosk are available at the end of Colemanville Church Road (north of the trail)
  • Martic Township: at the intersection of State Route 324 (Marticville Road) and Red Hill Road
  • Eden Township: off Bushong Road.
  • Quarryville: a trailhead with parking is available at Fairview Road just west off of Route 222
