It was a very nice trail. Trailhead was easy to find. Well maintained with half mile markers. Most of the trail was well shaded when we were there. Very flat, except for when meeting one or two of the roads.

This trail is super long and you can get on and off at any location, which is great, as the scenery changes. My only complaint is that sometimes a herd of runners will come and not move over.

It was our first ride with our new hybrid bikes. The trail had families biking, walkers, runners, even people on horses but the trail is wide enough for this not to be an issue. We actually rode further on to the Lebanon Valley Trail part....More

The trail is a converted railroad bed covered with crushed limestone. Wide enough for two-way traffic. Dogs are welcome. No bathrooms or porta potties except for the Lawn playground and Twin Kiss entrance otherwise I would give a 5 star rating.

Connecting Elizabethtown and Mount Gretna with a well maintained path enjoy the country scenery. Fox and deer are occasionally spotted along the way. Parking is easy. You won't regret a bike ride on this trail. More for walking than hiking.

My boyfriend and I went on the trail for an all day bike ride. We biked the entire 14 mile trail back and forth and it was exhausting but absolutely worth it. Such a beautiful scenery you get to enjoy as you travel many towns....More

21.75 miles if you count access to the Lebanon Valley Rail Trail. Sufficient parking. Most of it is road-bike worthy but use your trail bike.

I love to go running on the Conewago Trail. It is well maintained and clean. The paths are wide and mostly flat. It even has mile markers to help you keep track as you go. Also seems to be very popular for biking!
