The first section of the Elizabethtown Connector Trail officially opened in May 2015. Although just shy of a mile this trail provides such beautiful scenery that you'll feel like you could stay forever. This paved, multi-use trail begins off Wilson Avenue across from the train station on the borough's west side. It then zigzags behind light industrial properties and mini-storage facilities, crossing a bridge over Conoy Creek. East of Conoy Creek, the trail passes athletic fields and the borough's skate park to Peace Avenue.
From here, the trail follows side streets to a point just south of the Elizabethtown Library. Fortunately, these are lightly used side streets and the trail segment is designated by brick pavement and "zebra stripes." The trail then passes between buildings, coming out at Market Street about a block south of the town square. There is a possibility that the trail will be extended further east, through Elizabethtown Park to the high school, with a branch to Elizabethtown College. Hopefully, it will eventually be extended beyond the borough to connect with the Conewago Recreation Trail.
Parking is available at the train station off Wilson Ave., off Brown Street, Peace Ave. and immediately east of Market St.
