Nice, easy hike. Saw a ton of butterflies!

The Lancaster NW River Trail is a great 12 mile (not 3 mi as stated in app) paved rail trail along the Susquehanna River. Very scenic with many markers of historical points of interest along the trail.

The NW Lancaster River Trail is a great paved trail along the Susguehanna River. CORRECTION TO THE MISINFORMATION ON THE APP. This trail begins in Columbia, PA passes thru Marietta and ends at Bainbridge, PA (it is currently being extended North from Bainbridge). The trail is actually 12 miles (not 3mi) TOTALLY paved with great scenery including a bald eagle nest on small island in Susquehanna River. KS

This is my practice trail.
Good hills for conditioning.

Very nice, easy hike. No bugs, no mud, and beautiful views of the lake!

I walked over a hr though Hibernia Park very relaxing today 7-13-18 a little buggy

Nice even, easy black path. Great for bike riding with little ones. It was a great trail to teach my daughter how to ride and stay out of the way of others. Access to the creek, makes for a lot of fun. Wear bug spray if you go to the creek!

Paved rail trail. Nice easy hike and the cliffs are a must see. Trail is loaded with yummy berries. Get ‘em while ya can.

very hilly

What a neat geological attraction! I enjoyed the beauty of the CCC stone stairs, which I think add a lot to the scenic beauty of this trail-especially next to rainbow falls.

I love this nearly hidden gem of a trail. You get to experience the expansive open skies as you cross the river and can meander through the woods in Lower Merion. Comfortable wooden chairs and benches are along the path and hidden on lawns tucked away for those that stray from the path. We extended down to the start of the trail in Lower Merion and then headed up the hills through Westminster Cemetery. We found that is possible to exit the cemetery through the back on a short path near a beautiful partially overgrown historic building and connect back to the trail.

Took the Old Mill Trail from the gravel lot on Deerwood Lane to the river crossing and then through the woods to the Quarry Trail. Stopped for lunch with hammocks next to the lake and followed Quarry Trail back along the lake and back onto Old Mill Trail. Old Mill Trail was pretty muddy after a heavy rain on previous day, but manageable with waterproof hiking boots. Not a very scenic trail, but wide and well maintained. Frequent horse manure. Saw a few fishermen and other hikers, but not many. Old Mill Trail had pretty wildflowers and butterflies were abundant. Even the walk back along the lake didn’t afford many views. Nice trail, with gradual inclines, but not much to see.

We have completed about 4 of the trails and find them to be both relaxing and a challenge. loved the Wetlands festival too. great for kids as well.

Nice park and convenient to neighborhoods

Considering it’s just a few miles outside of the city it’s an amazing place to get away and go for a 3 mile walk or so. Actually ended up going fishing one time and had a great experience. Beautiful place to visit

I accidentally took the short loop which was only about 1.5 miles. It ended up being a blessing in disguise as there were so many bugs on this hot and humid July morning. Save this one for the fall and spring. The lake is pretty.

Great for soft surface running!

Short hike .. kid friendly. Beautiful scenic route and the balanced rock outlook is breathtaking.

A good hike with some awesome views! Sunset from the North Lookout is amazing!

Stopped on my way home from work one day. So glad I did! It’s a very well kept park. Didnt see any kind of trash around. A white tailed deer jumped out at me as well! Tip: if you’re heading back along the marsh, bring bug spray. I didn’t have any as this was spontaneous and the welts on my legs are itchy!!!

Great moderate hike with nice views. Went with my aunt who is not very active and we just did a short hike from parking lot to north lookout. She made it but could not complete river of rocks which is much more challenging. There was some restoration work being done so you may hear power tools toward the top. Very knowledgable and helpful staff. I would definitely go back.

It was a rainy day so the rock helped us stay dry during a downpour. One trail sign was broken, so we had to guess which way to go. The other trails in that area were more fun.

Great hike. Deeper in the woods was a bunch of muddy spots but is drying out. Kids ages 13, 11 and 7 did the hike with no complaints! Good trail but can get turned around easily.

Great overview

We rode from Frostburg to Perryopolis in two days, June 13 and 14, 2018. There was evidence of a cleared mud slide just before the turn off to Perryopolis, but had no problems getting around it - did not have to get off our bikes. It was an amazing two days with perfect weather and beautiful scenery. We stayed at the Parker House in Confluence the first night - a very nice home with several rooms for rent. The second night we stayed at The Inn at Lenora's in Perryopolis. We were the only guests so we had special attention and were treated like royalty, with breakfast (an enormous breakfast) included with our room rate. We appreciate all the volunteer work that goes in to keeping the Trail open.THANK YOU GAP VOLUNTEERS!

Lovely trail. Certainly easy and would be so nice for all ages!

Great hike! Harder than we thought but so worth it. Beautiful views. Lots of adventure. Awesome time. If you head out on the blue trail toward the River of Rocks and take the blue trail back around prepare for an awesome time.
