Conestoga Trail

59.78 Miles

Trail Description

The Conestoga Trail System (CTS) developed, maintained and protected by the Lancaster Hiking Club has its northern terminus at the old Lebanon Pumping station just off route 322. The CTS offers scenes of the many different land uses and natural terrain that exist in Lancaster County. It crosses rich farmland, passes pleasant residential areas, glimpses of highly industrialized sites, meanders through the Lancaster County Central Park, and climbs about in the River Hills. In tracing creeks and rivers the CTS crosses and recrosses them by a variety of means. There are covered bridges, a cable bridge, the more modern bridges as the Norman Wood Bridge and inevitable rock hopping, which is necessary at times. In July 2010, work was completed on the Conestoga Greenway, a 1.3 mile multi-use, paved, riverside trail at the heart of the CTS from Conestoga Drive near Bridgeport to Lancaster County Central Park at the Duke Street bridge in Lancaster Township and the city.
