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.

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!

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.

Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Not a whole lot to see and do along the trail. Some parts are a little mixed up with hunting trails and the trail markers aren't always legible. Overall a fairly short and easy hike.

Thursday, April 06, 2017

Nice easy trail with various offshoots. Can get crowded at times especially the parking lot off Black Rock.

Thursday, April 06, 2017

Trail is fine until last leg when you have to cross the bridge with no foot path. Given drivers these days this trail might not be worth risking your life.

Nice short trail for a leisure morning run. Not too hilly and some obstacles to run across, not too rocky.

This is my favorite area of Codorus State Park, because of the pine tree forest area. I thought this was the best until I saw it in summer. The grandeur of the trees in rows absolutely takes your breath away.

The trails are pretty obvious based on the ware patterns, but it is a little difficult to figure out where you are going due to all the loop intersections. The first time I hiked this in winter, I did the outermost loop and was amazed at the change in scenery from lake to pine forest to normal forest, to field and back.

I will say that dodging all the horse poop is a bit annoying when you are trying to look at everywhere but down. But I guess it's nice that there is a trail area open to horseback riding that isn't a long a main road.
