Great place to bring the dogs and get some exercise. Trails are clear and well marked. Some elevation changes, but easy 2.5 miles.

this is a good little park for running, riding or taking the dogs for a walk . Nothing to scenic but a good place to get off the roads and sidewalks. If you do all the trails and head down to money rocks and back you can do about 6 mile round trip. be warned the maps posted and trail colors have changed and as of this post did not match what was out on the trail.

This is a regular trail for me. Some parts easy to run, other parts a little rocky.
You can choose easy, short loops or extend and hook up with Money Rocks trails that can loop you back. Using All Trails recording feature can help you keep your bearing the first few times you connect different trails.
Nice parking area. No facilities.

solid trail. easy trek. well marked. blue blaze was a great easy loop. the destination brought me in at a road access. if you go down the road a bit more there is a nice parking area that can be used to access the trail.

I wanted a good hike my 5 yr old son would enjoy and this was perfect. We did a 2 mile loop through the woods. Blue and yellow blazes were marked very well.

A great, easy network of trails on the Welsh Mountain. A great, easy trail that leads you though the thick of the quiet woods. Blazes were well marked, and easy to follow at this Lancaster Consevancy property.
