The Lancaster Heritage Trail offers scenic views as it traverses the wooded Lancaster countryside. At each end, kiosks provide a brief history of the trail, which was built on a portion of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western railroad bed dating back to the late 1800s. The off-road, non-motorized pathway is paved and relatively level with three at-grade, well-marked street crossings. Benches made of natural materials, including boulders scattered alongside the trail, provide places to rest on the 4-mile journey.
Parking and Trail Access
Trail-goers may get to Walter Winter Drive via Erie Street or by following Commerce Drive through the Village of Lancaster Industrial Park. The other entrance is off Town Line Road, between Walden Avenue and Westwood Road. Public parking lots are located at both entrances.
First rail and trail that I stated out riding my Trek Series 3 and it was a nice smooth ride!!!
Short, well-made trail
Clearly the folks involved in the project were thoughtful and deliberate in making this a beautiful, useful trail.
