Mill Creek Trail (PA) Description

Just short of a mile in length, the Mill Creek Trail follows the south bank of the stream for which it is named in the suburbs east of Lancaster. Paved with a surface of compact woodchips, the multi-use trail is suitable for hiking and bicycling. Its route through lush woodlands and close proximity to the Mill Creek also present opportunities for fishing and birding. Trail users will also notice wooden boxes high up on poles at several points along the path; these are designed to give bats a place to sleep during the day.

The Mill Creek Trail is best accessed from a small trailhead at its eastern terminus off White Tail Path in the Mill Creek development. After heading down a hill, the trail turns southwest and follows the curving banks of the creek to a gate off Conard Road. A couple of large, stately homes can be seen on the opposite banks of the creek, and several homeowners in the adjacent Mill Creek and Summer Breeze developments have impressively landscaped their yards, which abut the trail. Trail users can admire these yards, but should also stay on the path and not trespass.

The trail does not connect to, and should not be confused with, a hiking path in nearby Lancaster Central Park that is also called Mill Creek Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

There is a small parking lot off White Tail Path in the Mill Creek development.

Great short trail

September 2017

I was concerned about riding on wood chips but the trail surface was smooth and not too soft. The scenery is very pleasant, only drawback is that the trail is so short. Lancaster County has many short trails, most of them very nice scenic rides. If you don't loading and unloading your bikes why not try to ride them all, we did, its fun.
