Ed Miller Memorial Trail Description

Named in honor of the late Ed Miller—a longtime caretaker at Renfrew Park and Museum and member of the Waynesboro Historical Society and Renfrew Institute—the Ed Miller Memorial Trail connects three parks as it winds through the south side of the Franklin County borough. The Renfrew Park and Museum is a historical Pennsylvania German farm which has become a public museum and park.

From its northwest end in Memorial Park, the route uses E Fourth Street for roughly 600ft before the street comes to a dead end. Leaving the street behind, the trail continues southeast and the rest of the route is off-road.

Passing between the Waynesboro Area School District campus to the north and the Brimington Farms development to the south, the trail crosses the West Branch of Antietam Creek via a footbridge. This segment of the trail climbs a couple of steep hills and has low shoulders, so caution is advised.

After climbing another hill, the trail reaches the western boundary of Renfrew Park and Museum. Trail users have the option of exploring the park via a network of internal footpaths, several of which intersect and overlap with the Ed Miller Trail. Taking a sharp turn south, the paved trail follows western boundary of the park and parallels the park's meandering grass-covered Hollengreen Trail. 

In approximately 0.2 miles, the paved trail turns sharply to the left and heads east into Renfrew Park. The route utilizes the following Renfrew Park Trails—the Memorial Trail, the Mill Stone Trail, and the Blue Heron Trail. The Memorial Trail heads easterly through the park and passes several of the park's buildings, where it meets the Mill Stone Trail. The Mill Stone Trail continues meandering through this group of buildings, which include a barn and a historic stone home. Curving south, the route crosses over the East Branch of Antietam Creek via a footbridge and follows the Blue Heron Trail southwest through wetlands to the Otterbein Community Park, where it intersects with a loop trail that circles that park's perimeter. The trail's southeast end is at the park's northeast corner by the baseball/softball fields.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Memorial Park, along E Fourth Street, at Renfrew Park & Museum, and at Otterbein Park. The trail can also be accessed from the Waynesboro Area Public School campus and YMCA.

Great Addition to Park

This is a great paved trail from Memorial Park to Renfrew and around Otterbein Park

Recumbent friendly

I enjoyed being able to get used to my Catrike Villager on a paved trail, close to a town yet still adjacent to farm fields and Antietam Creek. I was able to practice shifting gears on various uphills and downhills. I will definitely visit this again!
