Shorts trails, great for kids. One trail was pretty steep and treacherous but easily avoidable(it was fun if you’re able!). Wish people wouldn’t graffiti.

~ Beautiful view of the Susquehanna river. Even though it’s highly discouraged, climbing over the railings onto the rocks gives you a better view. You can watch the trains go by while the sun sets in the background. We came across this trail that lead to the outlook but had to take a quick detour to run through the pretty trees that you encounter on this trail ~

Went here to work off a big meal at Texas Road House in Lancaster. Of course we hike in the upper trail. A little breath catching on a full stomach but good exercise. Some beautiful views of the Susquehanna River up and down stream. And the Northwest Lancaster County River Trail below. Will have to bring my bike down and ride that. Wife and son took the low road back while I took the steep shortcut to the high trail.

Perfect trail given length and location. Nice incline to give some exercise but easy enough that anyone can do it. I took my four year-old and two-year-old and they loved it. highlight is obviously the view from The Overlook, where you can see Susquehanna River, railroad tracks and bridges.

Easy loop or out and back depending on your route, good for dogs and kids. My favorite spot to watch the sunset in the area

Easy trail but you can have a bit more fun by exploring the surrounding side trails people created.

Nice short hike to the overlook. When you get to the Y in the trail, if you go left it is more flat. If you go right you hike up a hill into the woods only to have to come back down the trail to get to the overlook. There are trees obstructing your view but you can get some pictures without them.

Nice hike, short and mostly flat. Wear good shoes as there are many ankle twisters on the trail. Water views are somewhat obstructed by trees. Worth checking it out.

Nice hike, only about 1 mile long on a very nice flat trail. Not the greatest view but a nice hike.
