Horse-Shoe Trail

The Horse-Shoe Trail begins in Valley Forge National Historic Park and continues westward for over 140 miles to its junction with the Appalachian Trail, northeast of Harrisburg.

The trail runs through a variety of  privately owned lands, state game lands and parks and is open to public primarily for hiking and equestrian use. Mountain biking is allowed “at the discretion of landowners only.” The Horse-Shoe Trail Conservancy produces an excellent Trail Guide that is available for order (hstrail.org).

The PA Highlands Trail Network is envisioned to follow the Horse-Shoe Trail for approximately 62.7 miles between French Creek State Park and the Lebanon Valley Rail Trail.
