4 miles of trails

The trails between the campground and the Conewago Day Use Area are for joint-use by:

This multi-purpose trail network consists of a 3.5-mile outer loop with a number of internal connectors.

The trail surface is packed gravel and the terrain is mostly flat with a few gentle hills.

The trail is suitable for family use and most bicycles.

The trail winds through woodlands and along the lakeshore; and is designed for a slow, leisurely ride.

Trail access for the general public is from the Conewago Day Use Area.

Campers can access the trails directly from the campground.

A seasonal bike rental is in the Conewago Day Use Area.

Please be considerate of other trail users; ride to the right and signal when passing. Fast and reckless riding is prohibited.
