The Chambersburg Rail Trail is a 1.6 mile paved urban trail that connects neighborhoods just a few blocks west of the community's central business district. Starting at South Main Street (Route 11), the trail occupies the center of a boulevard that separates north and southbound lanes of traffic. Stops are required at each of the 7 intersections. At busier street crossings, there is a pedestrian crossing button that activates flashing yellow lights to warn the vehicular traffic that a pedestrian or bicyclist is attempting to cross the street. About midway along the trail there is a wooden trestle bridge that crosses the Conocochenague Creek. The paved trail ends at West Commerce Street.
The Chambersburg Rail Trail is part of the Cumberland Valley Rail Trail.
Parking is available at the South Main Street trailhead. The trail is just north of Industrial Drive and south of Derbyshire Street.
To reach the Commerce Street trailhead from U.S. Route 30, turn north onto 2nd Street. Turn left onto West Commerce Street. Trail is on the left just past Race Street.
Additional parking is provided on Hood Street, south of Center Street and across from the cemetery. Curbside parking is also available at West South Street access point. Trail begins between Black Avenue and Hollywell Avenue.
