I recently did a program at the library focusing on the hiking trails of central Pennsylvania. I included a list of links that are useful in finding trails. The following is that list:
•http://www.explorepatrails.com – Useful in find trails in Pennsylvania
•http://www.railstotrails.org – Rails to Trails Conservancy website
•http://www.lancastercountyparks.org – Lancaster County Parks maintains a number of regional parks and two rail trails
•http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us – Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources maintain state parks and forest lands.
•http://www.nps.gov – National Park Service maintains national park lands including Valley Forge, Hopewell, and Gettysburg
•http://www.schuylkillrivertrail.com – The Schuylkill River Trail is a network of existing and proposed trails along the Schuylkill River
•http://www.nwrt.info – The Northwest River Trail is a network of existing and proposed trails along the Susquehanna River in northwest Lancaster County
•http://www.lancasterconservancy.org – The Lancaster County Conservancy maintains wildlife preserves throughout the County, mainly in the southwest along the Susquehanna River.
