Nice wide scenic trail. Train still uses the tracks running adjacent to the trail.

My wife and I have biked the entire trail several times. I take the kids on day trips and we do 6 to 10 miles sections at a time. Mostly level, some gentle inclines, packed gravel and well care for. Very nice trail for young ones to ride on. Great trail for biking, hiking, nature watching, birding, and picnics!

Easy ride. Packed gravel the whole way. Some road crossings where walking your bike across is not a bad idea. No big hills even grade the whole way.

I took several videos of this trail using a flip video camcorder. You can view them on YouTube by searching under my username: gplayer01, or York Heritage Rail Trail. I rode the trail from York down to the Mason Dixon Line (past New Freedom) and back. It was a super hot day, but a good and easy ride.
