Nice flat, straight trail, but not allot to look at.
Jun 2020
Two friends and I rode from Fairview rd parking lot to the closed bridge crossing about a mile past Martic Forge. This section is very flat to the point we couldn't determine an up or down going or coming. The trail is a full road width and covered with very fine crush-n-run with a very smooth surface. Arrow straight and completely tree lined on each side which don't allow for any scenic views. A high power electric line accompanies you the entire length. I recommend this trail for soaking up the miles but not very interesting.

Enjoyable and long trail
Jun 2020
Great trail -- changes name at the state line and continues to almost Baltimore. We parked at the county park at the new northern end (bathrooms!) but would have gone to the Route 30 trailhead if we had known about it. Had intended to park in downtown York but there's really no place for those who want to be out all day.
27 miles to the state line, 27 miles back.
One suggestion: signage in all the town directing users to food and ice cream. Missing a chance to support local businesses!

Nice place
Jun 2020
Flat trail that starts out with a long stretch of unshaded, gravel path along a quiet river. Pavement starts after about 10 minutes of walking from the York trailhead parking lot (1170 Loucks Mill Rd). Hardly any shade until a bridge about 20 minutes in, followed by a slight uphill grade before the trail flattens again amidst lots of trees. Very peaceful/pretty.

Adult hiking and rock climbing

Adults in our group enjoyed hiking and rock climbing. Parents with small children did hiking with one year old walking part of the time and riding in child backpack the rest of the time. Nice clean and clear trail.

Great for a bike ride
Sep 2019
I've biked this a number of times. The trail runs adjacent to the rail line from York through Glen Rock, New Freedom and into Maryland. A flat trail with compact gravel makes for a nice bike ride.

One of the best trails in Pa. that connects with the Torrey Brown Trail in Maryland. Over 40 miles one way from York, PA to Hunt Valley, Md. if your doing the whole trail, stop and stay at the Jackson B&B near New Freedom!

Excellent Bike Trail
Jul 2019 • Couples
This trail is really a multi use trail but an easy ride in a bike or recumbent trike. Plenty of parking along trail with restrooms, shops and places to eat. Old rail line, crushed stone surface. Lots of shade. Tunnels are dark so lights a must. Highly recommend.

Bike ride
Jul 2019 • Couples
We rode from the northern most point down to just past the tunnel about 13 miles south. It is pretty shaded in most parts. You do have to ride for a couple of blocks through the not greatest part of town. When we went they had a feed the homeless at one part in the city. However it may have been a little awkward I didnt feel unsafe. Also there was a police car there too. The trail is partially paved, the northern part. Its packed pea gravel for most of the southern part we did. We saw a lot of people on road bikes-we had hybrids.
