Awesome trail for biking.
Beautiful, nicely maintained route. If you start from Cornwall, uphill is first
It was mostly flat and wide. We liked the wooded areas. It was a enjoyable & relaxing ride. We loved that we get off trail and get food and ice cream at the Jigger Shop.
As this is a Rails to Trails trail, it is very wide, mostly paved (crushed, packed gravel where it isn't), and has very little elevation change. The Lebanon "half" of the trail is wider and better maintained than the Conewago side. Benched are plentiful from the 8th St trail head in Lebanon to Lawn Village at the Dauphin County line. After that point, the only benches are near the trail head in Londonderry Township.
I hiked the combined Lebanon Valley-Conewago Recreation Trail, spending the night in the state game lands. Plenty of wild onions to add to your dinner (May 9, 2015). The trail is more suited to biking and jogging but still is worth a hike if you want an easy workup to something bigger. The two trails together total 18.9 miles.
Bikers and joggers alike gave a wide berth while passing.
