Length: 5.3 mi • Est. 2 h 13 m
The Conewago Recreation Trail is just over 5.0 miles in length and is nice and wide. The path is suitable for a number of activities such as: biking, running, walking, cross-country skiing, and horseback riding. It is a very scenic route, as it runs alongside the Conewago Creek for the majority of the way, and goes through the Lancaster County farmland. As the trail comes to an end, the surface changes and it connects to the Lebanon Valley Rail Trail, which is also marked with signs. There are 5 different parking locations throughout the Conewago Recreation Trail. The trail has six street crossings which all have well-marked signs that make it very safe for trail use. The Rails to Trails Bike Shop located on the trail serves multiple purposes as people can go there for bike malfunctions, to buy new equipment, or simply ask a question with regard to the trail. A limited number of benches are along the trail, and the majority of the trail is surrounded by trees that provide shade on a hot day. Distance markers are located at every half mile. Accessibility: The trail surface is crushed stone and eight feet wide. The trail is considered inaccessible for wheelchairs at the Mill Road crossing intersection but from this point in either direction, the trail is accessible. The grade is mostly gentle (all estimated under 5%).Show more
