South Gettysburg Trail
HABPI is working with many partners to create a mostly off-road trail for walking and bicycling that heads south from the Gettysburg National Military Park (GNMP) Visitor Center to the Maryland border, near Emmitsburg, Maryland. 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 East Gettysburg Trail (EGT), 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.
