“Great place to walk, jog or bike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The Newville site is a little out of the way but the parking is good and there is a nice bathroom facility. Variety of wooded and open field areas. You can go from Newville to Shippensburg (or vice versa). Definately recommend!

“A little hard to find trail head, but really beautiful ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

We never found the trailhead in Newville due to road construction and maybe a slightly confused GPS, but we did find the trail and had a great scenic ride. Pay attention at crossings, most are farm roads and the machinery you may see on them are big and moving fast - but everyone we saw waved and smiled!

“The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Walking, Running, Biking, Horse Back Riding - you can do kit all on the rail trail. The trail, which runs between Newville and Shippensburg is a pleasant place for any of those activities. The trail is mostly well maintained cinders with nicely mown berms. Shade is the norm, but some stretches much mote open.
