Pleasant park close to the city - nice 3 mile loop trail for a quick after work exercise
First time here- great hike. Multiple "named" trails- very well marked- paths well maintained and clear. Lots of trail options depending on the distance and difficulty you're looking for. Main parking lot had restrooms and water fountains. Will definitely return.
A very easy well maintained trail system, doggable, strollerable
Nice mix of on-road/off-road sections. In the summer, be sure to watch out for geese as you're traveling along Front Street. The part that winds around Wildwood is pretty challenging at times (biking).
The currently drawn map on AllTrails is misleading; the Green Belt is actually a 20 mile trek through Harrisburg, the local community college's wildlife preserve (Wildwood), Reservoir Park, among other areas. To see the full trail, go to the Harrisburg Capital Area Greenbelt web page (http://www.caga.org/the-trail/). Here's where to find the GPS coordinates: http://www.caga.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/GreenbeltCoordinates2015.pdf
Love, love this place. I come here to run, walk my dog, get lost in nature photography.
Great is the wildlife. Bad is the Pokemon Go Oddballs
