The 3,452-acre Codorus State Park is in the rolling hills of southern York County. The 1,275-acre Lake Marburg has 26 miles of shoreline and is a reststop for migrating waterfowl and shorebirds. The lake is also popular with sailboaters and motorboaters. Anglers love the lake for warm water fishing and can also fish Codorus Creek for trout. Picnicking, swimming in the pool and camping are popular activities.

heavy rain for a week but the trail wasn't as bad as you'd expect. nice hike with the family, with an added bonus of a playground at the mid point to take a break.

Wonderful for children with lots of explorable spots along the trail. On 9/22, muddy in low spots near beginning and about 3/4 through, but not terrible with appropriate footwear. You can choose to walk around in most spots. My children chose not to. Most of trail is dry and comfortable.

really fun even after all the rain we had it wasn't that muddy and my 5 month puppy had no problem on this trail

Not bad, just every time I visit there's always muddy patches to cross. I've seen a few bald eagles around the lake as well. The only part I don't like is having to walk along the road at the end.

Nice walk in the woods. Some parts of the trail get narrow and can be harder to navigate. One of the small boardwalks was broken in one spot and my dog had trouble crossing it. There was also a lot of muddy patches to cross and a ton of bugs. Just remember the bug spray!

Nice trail for families. Some hills but relatively easy to navigate. Well marked for the most part. Took about an hour and a half with 2 younger kids in tow.

ok for beginners, but if you are looking for something that requires a higher skill level you will want to run somewhere else.

A very nice set of trails, but a lot of poop to dodge. Wear old shoes.

Ok for beginners like me but I dont think I would take my 3 year old with me again. Some areas were too steep for him to do on his own and when doing the loop you have to walk along the highway.

Very nice trail easy to get to with good parking space available. Can be very muddy in spots near the beginning and end of the trail. Also have seen about a 3ft long black snake on the trail so just keep aware of surrounds, small kids, and dogs.

nice trail I ran it today it is very grown up and not marked well. Would be nicer if they trimmed the bushes back a bit! on a side note this isn't the parks fault but I had to jump over 2 snakes 1 3FT black snake and a smaller snake green and black not sure what it was! I would have turned back but I didn't see them till the last min so I went over them!

You get creek, wetlands, lake, and woods experience with this trail! Not to mention it leads to the campground area and has amphitheater and playground! It was 3 miles all together with the trails we chose. Lots of hills in beginning and end. There is a side of road parking but if you drive too fast you’ll miss it. Only 5-car parking. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Will do again!

Nice trail but iwe followed the map and it was only 2 miles which turned out to be the short cut! If you want 3.8 pick up a state park map for find it online and you will see the difference. I have also heard lots of ticks. Had my two dogs there and hoping none are found on them tonight. I did spray them with a natural repellent first.

Nice, easy little trail. Took a 2 and 7 year old and they did fine. Only downside is walking the highway bridge at the end, but it was a very small portion. Saw other families with small children, leashed dogs, and a jogger. Cemetery along the way was an interesting stop. Would recommend for beginners, families, or anyone looking for a quiet easy trail.

We enjoyed this trail with 2 & 4 year old boys. The only downside is you have to walk along the road (bridge) on the very last part of the trail. But that’s only a very small part of the trail. Overall it was good and kid friendly.

Very narrow trails at places, especially with a large dog like mine but it's a nice easy trail. You can even take a short cut if you don't have time to hike the complete loop.

Please read if you plan on hiking here. 1 star for hiking. But i will give it 4 stars for horseback riding. Trails are unmarked with multiple intersections that aren't marked. Grassy areas where your shoes and socks will get wet really quick. Long muddy spots about 15 feet long with no way around them. The trail says it crosses roads where it doesn't cross roads where it took me five minutes to figure out where to go. Every trail is shared with horses therefore it smells like horseshit. Is very noisy you constantly here cars and trucks. It is a lake so there is a boat noise but I knew that going in. Probably how to see about 30 dogs. Only one couple had their dog on a leash today. So if you're not a dog person I want to go there because dogs will run up to you. I'm done ranting just be careful if you go there.

It is a fairly easy trail for families. There are access points to the lake for the view. If you did the full loop/trail- The last portion involves a hike along the (moderately used) highway across the bridge (no path for hikers to cross) which is unsafe and why we don't take our dogs. Otherwise this trail is a fav of ours!

Thursday, June 22, 2017

Nice, easy trail to hike with the pup. Pretty lake views at various points. Not a fan of crossing the bridge at the end though, it was a bit too much traffic while walking with a dog.

Awesome trail!

Nice quick trail that you can do in under an hour. Crossing the bridge at the end is unnerving but the rest of the trail is easy, wooded terrain.

Great walk, little muddy at places even on dry days! Been going for years. Only bad part is the end where you have to cross the bridge on a busy road

Thursday, April 13, 2017

last part across the bridge is definitely not my favorite but other than that it's beautiful. Trail gets very muddy so be prepared.
