Conewago Recreation Trail
Lancaster County Parks Department’s Conewago Recreation Trail is a 5-mile low-grade trail for walkers, joggers, bicyclists, horseback riders, and cross-country skiers. The trail begins at the Route 230 parking area and connects to the Lebanon Valley Rail Trail. A convenient trailhead is now located at the Township’s Old Trolley Line Park – a safe alternative to the informal parking area at the Route 743 crossing.
A 1.4-mile hiking trail takes you through the 52.4-acre Bellaire Woods property owned by the Lancaster County Conservancy. A small parking lot is located at 797 Prospect Road, Elizabethtown.
