The rail trail is a great way to get outside. The hiking is easy as it is a rail bed. There is a spooky tunnel, cool bridges, and lots to see. Wear decent walking shoes and bring water and snacks!

From John Rudy park to the Maryland line, that's what you can ride on the forever changing rail trail. Depending on the area you're on the experience will be very different. Some are deep woods without anything but mother nature as far as you can...More

I have biked the trail multiple times. Great place to have little ones ride due to lack of cars. Goes a long way (over 40 miles one way and has a tunnel. Great fun for all ages. Have seen deer, turkey and hawks on rides.

I could not have enjoyed a bike ride more. We began at Princess Street in York and rode to Glatfelter Station. I could have kept going, but my friend was tiring, so we turned around. Highlights were the mix of urban and country views, and...More

Locals use this trail year around for biking and walking. The trail is well maintained and is nestled against a set of railroad tracks and some very scenic beauty.

We camped overnight at Indian Rock Campground. From there, we were about a half mile to the trail. Even on a hot sunny day, the bike/hiking trail alongside the train tracks is nicely shaded and cool. The trail is wide enough to allow faster bike...More

The trail is a railbed so it is gravel. They did lay down pea gravel so it is relatively smooth, but not blacktopped. I have seen road bikes on the trail but I have never ridden one there.
