The Lebanon County Heritage Trail was designed to create community-wide greenway networks and connect to county identified greenways and trails. Currently this 100 mile driving trail is in the beginning stages of development. Eventually each municipality that touches the trail will bear signage, and historic sites along the trail will boast informational plaques of interest. Future plans also include a safe route for bicycling.
In September 2009 the Heritage Trail expanded with its first ever “City of Lebanon Walking Tour”! Participants had a great time visiting historic downtown Lebanon using free maps to guide and inform walkers about the unique architecture of downtown buildings. Some of the architectural styles date back to the mid-1700’s.
Currently, there are 7 Heritage Trail maps available: Annville, City of Lebanon, Jonestown, Schaefferstown, Mt Gretna, Myerstown, and Palmyra. Maps can be picked up at the Lebanon County Historical Society and Visit Lebanon Valley office at the Farmers Market. Or contact the Executive Director of the Conservancy.
Our next map: CORNWALL is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
