Horseshoe Trail is a 7.8 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Lititz, PA that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Only got one mile in (the person I went with couldn't handle it!). Will be going back, I want to make it to Eagle's rock.
Very rocky trail & lot's of bugs(as to be expected).
I followed the yellow trail.
TIP: Wear hiking shoes.
Parked at 322 and hiked about 2.4 miles to 501. Incentive at the end... Ice cream at the Pretzel Hut. A nice walk, about an hour or so with a little lookout about half way (at the top of the mountain is a little rock cluster called Eagle Rock).
We didn't go very far just about 1.75 miles in and then turned around. It was a nice afternoon hike and there was one nice small lookout near Eagle Rock.
I am not sure what 7.6 mile loop this is talking about. The Horseshoe Trail is a 140-mile trail that runs from Valley Forge National Historical Park toward Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. It ends about 15 miles northeast of Harrisburg at the Appalachian Trail. It does run along the Lancaster-Lebanon county line north of Lititz, but it is not a loop trail.
