Conestoga Trail System

Hiking trail

The 63-mile long Conestoga Trail System has its northern terminus at the old Lebanon Pumping Station just off route 322.  The southern terminus is located at Lock 12 in York County just across the Norman Wood Bridge and off Route 372 where it meets up with the Mason-Dixon Trail.  The Conestoga Trail System offers vistas of the many different land uses and natural terrain that exist in Lancaster County.

The Susquehanna River parallels the Conestoga Trail for 5.36 miles from the parking lot at Kelly’s Run Nature Preserve to the Pequea Boat Launch. It is marked with orange blazes. This hike is ranked as strenuous/difficult, including vertical climbs and stream crossings. Click here for trail directions – be prepared!
