This rail to trail location is great for walking, running or bike riding. It's flat, shaded, and plenty wide for multiple people.

This is a great trail for biking that will take you all the way up to the Lebanon county fair grounds, but no need to go that far, the Jigger Shop in Mount Gretna is far enough. It is roughly 12 miles from the start...More

The trail runs through areas of trees and meadows with a usually gurgling creek running alongside. It is well maintained and used. Only drawback is that there is no porta potty or restroom at the trailhead.

This may not be the most "fancy-pants" trail of all, however, I like it because you can set your own pace and make it a short walk or connect to the next trail and walk or bike a good many miles. The first section starts...More

Our family of 4 (including two girls ages 11 & 12) enjoyed a great bike ride on this flat, groomed trail.

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.
