Codorus State Park Trails

26.52 Miles

Trail Description

The 3,452-acre Codorus State Park is in the rolling hills of southern York County. The 1,275-acre Lake Marburg has 26 miles of shoreline and is a reststop for migrating waterfowl and shorebirds. There are 20 miles of trails. Although the park only has two “hiking only” trails, there are many more miles of equestrian and trail biking trails that can also be hiked. All trails are in hunting areas so visitors should wear fluorescent orange during hunting seasons. Mary Ann Furnace Trail - 4.5 miles - From the trailhead along Black Rock Road, the trail begins on a boardwalk through the wetlands of Black Rock Flats then climbs through a tall deciduous forest that borders old farm fields and comes to a Y. The left trail eventually follows the shoreline of the lake. The right trail climbs to the top of the hill and gives a view of the campground. Both trails interconnect and connect to a spur that leads to the campground. A third spur loops along the old farm fields and by the old Rummel barn. LaHo Trail - 1.5 miles - 1.5 miles - This trail follows the shoreline of Wildasin Flats. The wetlands make this an excellent area for birding, year-round. The trail is primarily a single-track path that hugs the hillside, although a few trail sections ascend steep terrain and portions of the trail can be muddy. On a grassy knoll in the eastern part of the trail is Wildasin Cemetery, which has a tombstone dated 1722. There are 6.5 miles of mountain biking trails The designated 195-acre Trail Biking Area is on the northern shore of the park. The trails crisscross forests and climb short hills. During hunting seasons, bikers should wear fluorescent orange for safety. Please respect other trail users. There are 8 miles of equestrian trails. Ranger Trail travels over rolling hills, through forests and fields, crosses streams and passes near Lake Marburg. There are many views of the lake, including Ranger Overlook which has benches and hitching posts. The 40-trailer parking lot is off of the Main Launch Day Use Area entrance road. The lake is also popular with sailboaters and motorboaters. Anglers love the lake for warm water fishing and can also fish Codorus Creek for trout. Picnicking, swimming in the pool and camping are popular activities.
