Established in 1992 and covering 176 acres, the Heritage Rail Trail County Park is 21 miles long and runs north from the Mason Dixon line just south of the Borough of New Freedom through Glen Rock, Hanover Junction, and Seven Valleys in the Howard Tunnel to the Colonial Courthouse in York, PA. It's within easy reach of Baltimore, being just an hour away straight up I-83.
Hours: 8 a.m. to dusk.
Dogs: Happy tails! By all means, bring them!
