East Gettysburg Trail

HABPI is working with many partners to create a mostly off-road trail for walking and bicycling that heads east out of Gettysburg and creates an alternative transportation route to Hanover, PA. The plan is to create a trail that is similar to the York County Heritage Rail Trail and the Cumberland Valley Rail Trail.

Ultimately, along with the South Gettysburg Trail (SGT), this route will help complete the Adams County section of the Grand History Trail (GHT). More information can be found about the GHT by following the link below.

The full feasibility study and plan—as well as information on how alternative transportation trails and paths benefit the environment, raise home values, create safe spaces to exercise, and more—can be found on our Resources Page.
