Canning House Run Trail Description

Nearly a mile in length, the Canning House Run Trail extends from the entrance to the Perryville boat ramp south along the west side of Roundhouse Drive to the historic Rodgers Tavern at the intersection with Broad Street.

Paved with asphalt, the trail's level surface makes it ideal for use by cyclists, walkers, parents pushing little ones in strollers and the handicapped. Despite its short length, the trail provides a memorable experience to users, who are treated to scenic views of the Susquehanna River, the engineering marvel of the Hatem Bridge, which carries Route 40 over the trail and adjacent neighborhoods on the west side of town prior to crossing the river, and passes Ice House and Lower Ferry parks. Rodgers Tavern, an old stone building located near the trail's southern terminus, was originally constructed in the 18th century and served as a tavern and inn until 1886. Today, it houses a museum and the offices of the Perryville Chamber of Commerce.

The trail is also part of the Lower Susquehanna Heritage Greenway and will eventually be part of a larger network of trails that town officials plan to construct. Trail users desiring a longer cycling or walking experience can already follow Broad Street under the Amtrack trestle and use a series of sidewalks and access roads in the Perry Point VA Medical Center to reach Perryville Community Park. Officials eventually hope to build an offroad Loop Trail that will encircle both of these sites, and are also studying the possibility of extending the Canning House Run Trail north to Frenchtown and Port Deposit.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Rodgers Tavern at the trail's southern terminus and along local streets.

Canning House Run Trail Reviews

it’s a start

Basic walking “sidewalk” that’s only .8 mi, but a good start Parked at the Rodgers house. Bikes the .8 and back just to start my rambling in a new town If you follow the closed road behind Rodgers, and stay to the right,,you begin a road that goes behind lots of VA buildings to the left (fields between you and the bldgs, so it’s not like in a city , and the water to the right…very peaceful and quiet ride. Only goes maybe 3/4mi and ends at another closed (to cars)road that leads around the Perryville community park (one way, counter clockwise) and though there were families out, the road was basically deserted at 3p on a Sunday in May. It circles around the park and when u get to the opposite end of where you started, it’s the exit Technically a small winding road through the woods (fortunately onky came upon a couple of cars
