The Water Street Bridge is open to Horse, Bike, and Hiking Traffic! You can now complete the loop. Moderate hills in spots, lots of side trails and some areas with poor markings - you could get off the main trail easily. Mostly shady for a summer hike. Unfortunately, even though they have finished working on the dam Lake Williams is still not completely backfilled.

Some parts are very lovely and beautiful, especially the conifer forest. Other parts were kind of boring, as it looked more prepared for vehicles than hiking. The lake was still out as well. I might try it again whenever the lake is opens back up.

Took the kids on a rainy day hike, it was lovely as always. This is the second trail we have been to in Rocky Ridge County Park, which I think is a gem of York County, Being from Lancaster county, that is rare for me to say! Anywho, love this park and I can't wait to explore it again. The only change I would suggest is labeling the trail head more clearly.

well maintained trail.

Very nice trail, a bit steep and challenging at some points because of loose rocks but overall not too terrible. the scenery is absolutely gorgeous and almost fairy tale-esqe at points. We definitely are going to do it again to check out the other trails in the park.

gets narrow and rocky in the back end...fun nonetheless

I walk this trail often and it is always relaxing. Last week I did 17 miles and it was pretty easy since it is mostly flat.

Nice trail, kid friendly...I’m a beginner so it was a great workout!!

Beautiful trail through the country side! Mostly in the shade with plenty of access points. Rode to the Mason Dixon line and back to York but if you're feeling ambitious the trail does continue into MD! I'll definitely be riding it again.
