Segment #5 Lebanon Valley Rail Trail - Conewago Trail

The Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN) is envisioned to follow a 3.6 mile section of the Lebanon Valley Rail Trail (LVRT) and the entire 5.0 mile length of the Conewago Recreation Trail (CRT) along the former Cornwall-Lebanon Rail Line. These trails feature level, well-graded surfaces with a mix of scenery including farmland, woods and towns. The PHTN is envisioned to co-join the LVRT at its junction with the Horse-Shoe Trail. At the western end of the CRT there is a nearly 5 mile gap to the Northwest River Trail along the Susquehanna River.
