Heritage Rail Trail County Park extends more than twenty-one miles, winding through scenic areas of southern York County. The ADA trail is a 10-foot wide compacted stone surface designed for hiking, bicycling, running, horseback riding, as well as winter sports such as cross country skiing and snow shoeing. This linear park connects the historic district of downtown York, Pennsylvania with Maryland's Torrey C. Brown Trail while traveling through 11 different municipalities. Adjacent to the trail is an active rail line. The park is open year round, dawn until dusk, and is patrolled by York County Park Rangers.
