Chickies Rock Overlook Trail

Short hike with a nice view

May, 2024 by megr_tl

Definitely not for biking the whole way, but nice for a short hike. Good view of the river! Without looking at the map, we took the steeper right trail at the first marked intersection that just showed it going to the overlook. That side trail is confusing without a map, as we ended up in a dead end without a view and had to backtrack a little and then the path ended up on the main trail. If you don't want to have to climb over a very short section of rocks at the end to see the western view, this path wouldn't be for you.

LeTort Spring Run Nature Trail

Short but Sweet

May, 2024 by seiswert129

This was a really peaceful trail through lots of beautiful farmland. Lots of birds and other nature. As you get closer to Carlisle proper it does become a bit noisier (and I did encounter a nice homeless man and an asphalt factory) but overall it was a very pleasant and peaceful ride. Combined with some hilly road rides to and from this was definitely a worthwhile trip.

Greater Lancaster Heritage Pathway

nice, but short

May, 2024 by joelkring

We rode this trail on a sunny spring Sunday. The trail is beautiful, the only problems are its total lack of shade and its short length. Looking forward to when this trail is completed.

Buffalo Valley Rail Trail

Great Little Rail Trail

April, 2024 by hughes29187

Drove about 3 hours to try this wonderful little trail. Parked at western terminus in Mifflinburg next to the Rusty Rail Brewing Company, which was a great post ride visit, and rode east to Lewisburg. At both ends of the trail are paved with crush ballast for most of the ride. Some soft gravel so stay in the worn track is recommended. Two cautions: watch the gates and poles as you cross the country roads and there is one very small disconnected section once into Lewisburg and need to cross US15. Recommend head north to light (with bike lane) cross and then ride up half a block and make a right. You'll run into trail that completes a few blocks later. Bonus are the facilities at both ends of the trail.

Capital Area Greenbelt

Nice trail around Harrisburg, PA

April, 2024 by bgreenwa

I was in Harrisburg for the weekend and looking for a bike ride on Sunday morning with friends. We greatly enjoyed biking the Capital Area Greenbelt. The ride is paved with short bits of gravel, mainly flat but with some steep but short hills. The trail does cross some busy intersections, but there was always a crosswalk and usually a traffic light. Cars often stopped for us at crosswalks. We rode counter-clockwise, starting at City Island. I agree with other reviewers that this trails is not the best for small children due to crossing these intersections. There was a short trail closure along the river on the southern part of the route, but I found the detour signs easily and we returned to the trail without problem. We biked on roads for a few miles, but we found only 1 road to be remotely busy (it was on the detour), the rest were neighborhood streets. There were walkers along the trail, especially in the parks, so caution was needed, especially at Wildwood Park. The trail was picturesque - both along the Susquehanna river and through several Harrisburg parks. Trail markings were present most of the time, but I agree with others - have a map. Or better, use the TrailLink app on your smartphone or download the route to your cyclecomputer (I found the route on Garmin.com and MapMyRide). We brought water and snacks, there was water along the way but few options for food. The bathroom at Wildwood Park was clean with running water and a water fountain. We are experienced riders, so I did not consider this a strenuous 20 mile ride, but it will be a challenge for beginners. Overall it was a very pleasant few hours exploring the area around Harrisburg, and if you are looking for an urban style bike ride this one will meet your needs.

Hanover Trolley Trail

Moving Forward '24

April, 2024 by jmcginnis12@gmail.com

After being on the back burner for most of the past decade, progress on building a multi-use trail between York and Hanover is moving forward again.
As its name implies, the Hanover Trolley Trail was originally envisioned to follow the route of the York-Hanover Fast Line, a trolley service that connected York City with the southwestern boroughs of Spring Grove and Hanover between 1909 and 1939. Two short segments of the trail, each about 1.5 miles in length, were constructed on sections of the old trolley line, one from Moul Field in Hanover east to Gitts Run Road in Penn Twp., and another from Hosiery Alley in Spring Grove east to Martin Road in Jackson Twp. in the late 2000's/early 2010's.
Unfortunately, efforts to continue building the trail along the old trolley line stalled due to the fact that some sections had reverted to private ownership while others were converted to public roads. To work around this, newer segments of the trail will be routed along an inactive Genesee & Wyoming rail line that closely parallels the old trolley line for most of its length. The first section of trail along this new alignment was built on the east side of Spring Grove from the RR trestle on the original alignment southwest through Spring Grove Community Park to the corner of Main Street and Railroad St. next to the fire station in 2022.
Now, two years later, an additional 2 miles of the trail have been built along the old RR line from the trestle northeast to the Jackson Twp. line, immediately west of an abandoned bridge over Sunnyside Road. The first 1.5 miles of this section parallels an existing segment of the trail and the two alignments are connected via a half mile of Martin Road, giving users the option of riding or walking a loop.
Unlike the segment that it parallels on the trolley line, which crosses rolling farm fields, the new section passes through meadows and woodlands along the West Bank of the Codorus Creek. Observant trail users will note the concrete abutments to a now demolished bridge over the creek and a small family cemetery that sits on the side of a hill southwest of Martin Road. After passing a bucolic hamlet at Martin Road, the trail reenters the woods and follows the creek to a dead end immediately west of the old RR bridge. This bridge is currently barricaded and not open for use, and there is no public access to Sunnyside Road. The most notable features along this section include the clear waters of the creek and old rock cuts that were dug or blasted out to build the RR.
Although it does not yet connect to Bair or West York, this newest section of the Hanover Trolley Trail is a big step forward for the project. Efforts are already under way to extend the trail southwest to Gitts Run Road along the old rail line and to connect with the existing segment east of Hanover. Once that is accomplished, the portion from Sunnyside Road to Bair should be completed, and a feasible alignment through West Manchester Twp. to York City is currently under study.

Conewago Recreation Trail

Rough Ride

April, 2024 by joerebman

My first ride of the season on this trail in my hometown. Lancaster Co. Parks & Rec Dept decided to patch this trail with large non-bike-friendly gravel which makes for a rough ride where it's patched. It is especially bad in the first couple miles between Rtes. 230 and 743. The Rt. 743 (55 mph 2 lane road) crossing is dangerous, but they are working on putting up lights, for what it's worth. If you want to ride this trail, park at Trolly Line Park off of Beverly Road and just ride north to the connecting Lebanon Valley Trail. ...you'll avoid the Rt 743 crossing and the roughest part of the trail.

Heritage Rail Trail County Park

Not well Marked

April, 2024 by kyoto11

The trail was nice and enjoyed the bird songs. I had started at the Northern trail head and heading south to MD border. The problem is the trail isn't well marked once I had made York. I had gotten lost and wasted a lot energy and looped around York trying to locate the southern Heritage Rail trail. Decided to head back, luckily my phone hadn't run out of charge.
All that being said I will try it again later this year.

Lebanon Valley Rail-Trail

Chestnut Street section is complete

April, 2024 by joelkring

We have been riding on Chestnut St. since the 25th Street trailhead opened to ride to Long Lane. Last year they began working on the Chestnut St. extension of the trail and it is finally complete. It runs from near the VW dealership to Gloninger Woods Park. If you want to the 25th St. lot, turn right at 22nd Street, go straight at the traffic light then follow the parking lot around the Lebanon Valley Mall to right on 25th St. to the trail on your left just after railroad underpass.

Farmland trail on 4/14/24

Very nice trail around a municipal park with ball fields and playground, then continues on mostly through beautiful farms and fields. Sections of gravel and pavement, mostly flat. Good for families with children, either biking or walking with strollers.
