Family Fun Biking on the NCR & YCH Trail

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams American Premier Realty

If you are looking for a little exercise, fun and history all in one this is the place to be.  The North Central & York County Heritage Trails combine to make for an amazing 41 miles of bike riding.  The trail is mostly crushed stone so it's very easy to ride on and it is mostly shaded so it makes for a great ride even on those hotter days of summer. 

Overview of NCR/YCH Trails

I have actually had the pleasure of riding the entire 41 miles this summer.  I have been riding on this trail for years but never went any further than New Freedom so this year I decided to ride the whole trail.  It has been an awesome experience. 

Not only is it a nice leisurely ride but there is so much history along the trail as well.  Last weekend we rode to Hanover Junction where there is a museum you can visit.  I stood on the same platform where President Lincoln stood while on his way to deliver the Gettysburg Address in 1863. 

You should definately make sure you have water and snacks for your journey but there are a few quaint cafes along the trail where you can stop for a rest and refreshments.  You will be sharing the trail with other bicyclists, joggers, walkers and horse riders so please remember your manners and be sure to let someone know you are coming up along side them so they aren't startled.

There's still plenty of time this year to get out there and get some exercise for your mind, body and soul.  Happy riding!!!
