CTS 8/18/07 – Lancaster County Central Park

Took a short hike with my son on a stretch of the Conestoga Trail System that travels through Lancaster County Central Park. Round-tripped 4 miles (2 out and then back) from the East King Street entrance to Golf Road.

Friday night saw a severe thunder storm pass through the park and caused a significant amount of blow down damage to trees in the northeast section of the park, as seen in this photo. A few of the trees with blazes were knocked over completely.

Overall, a A pleasant stretch of trail with some nice views and a few moderately difficult hills. The park’s trail map seems pretty accurate. It turns out there are actually 10 hiking trails in the park, as described in the trail guide.
