  • I have yet to explore the hiking trails, but I absolutely LOVE the overlook. The overlook overlooks the lower end of the Susquehanna River, you can see the Normanwood Bridge and also the Peach Bottom....  more »

  • It has 2 great views of the Susquehanna River. The trails are generally easy with a few moderate options available. Great for families since there are plenty of short trails. If you want a longer, more challenging hike you can string together a few of the trails to make a 5-8 mile loop. Local foliage includes Rhododendron, Paw-Paw, Sassafras, Oak, and Maple.
  • Super easy to get to, easy and plentiful parking, well groomed tails. All in all a very nice park for a quick visit. Trails aren't too intense or long if you're looking for a workout this might not be the hike for you.
