Located along the Susquehanna River valley with its heavy forest cover and rocky terrain, Susquehanna State Park offers a wide variety of outdoor recreational opportunities as well as points of historical significance. The park is home to some of the most popular mountain biking trails in Maryland and the river itself beacons fishermen and boaters alike. Susquehanna State Park also contains a very family friendly campground with traditional campsites and cabins. History buffs will be drawn to the restored Rock Run Historic Area with its working grist mill, the Archer Mansion, Jersey Toll House and the remains of the Susquehanna Tidewater Canal. The river offers excellent fishing opportunities, including pike, perch, and bass for shoreline anglers or boating anglers who launch from the Lapidum Boat Ramp.
Been here many times...brought my new puppy to get him started on a familiar trail....he did great! trail needs a bit maintaining...trees across path and large roots sticking out...and dont go after a big rain....we slid down a trail! overall...great trail with beautiful views
great scenery to go along with a challenging ride. Along the Greenway trail was a peaceful fun adventure taking you up the river. Moving on to some of the parks inner trail is where it got difficult! Amazing place, will definitely be back soon!
My 4 year old son and I did just the Rock Run Trail loop where it uses the Land of Promise Trail to complete the loop. We also went down to the falls off the Historic Walking Trail. It's a moderate difficulty trail in my opinion. Keep an eye out for the roots and rocks. We did about 1.8 miles in an hour and twenty minutes. I forgot to continue recording after our lunch break so the time and distance on the track is a bit off. We had a good time, crossed paths with friendly people, and enjoyed the beautiful weather.
There are a number of hiking trails within the Susquehanna State Park you can hike so I recommend you print off the trail map from their web page. I hiked the Susquehanna Trail from Lapidum and then came back using the Land of Promise Trail. There are enough trail in the park to keep you busy for a day.
Very easy trail to walk with the possibility of seeing bald eagles along the way. You can extend your hike by taking some of the trails within the Susquehanna State Park (southern end of the trail) or you can hike north on the Mason Dixon Trail.
really a very nice easy hike. we are always looking for hikes our 6 year old and 2 year old can do and this trail is perfect. We entered off River road by a Christian ministry camp and hiked north for about one mile. Great scenery along the Susquehanna river. We spoke with one of the trail maintainers and he mentioned the hike is the same pretty much all the way up to broad creek I think he said. The kids had no trouble with it. A little hilly, and I'd recommend hiking boots as there are some loose rocks, but a great way to spend an afternoon out with the family.
I walked the Red Trail. Great trail for those whole like to walk up and down several hills. Beautiful and peaceful walk. I plan to walk this trail again in the winter when the trees are bare in order to see the river down below. Trees block the view during the summer months.
