New Website Blazes a Path to Lebanon County, Pa.'s Hiking Trails




June 6, 2014 By John Latimer, McClatchy News Service

Hikers of both the serious and casual variety have a new online resource to help them plan their adventures — just in time for National Trails Day on Saturday.

Lebanon Valley Rails-to-Trails, in partnership with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, has developed hikelebanonpa.org, a website which links to the websites of other local hiking spots, providing a one-stop shop for those seeking maps and other information about Lebanon County's hiking trails.

The idea for the website was hatched two years ago at a meeting of local trail stakeholders who met at Memorial Lake in East Hanover Township to discuss ways they could help each other, said LVRT President John Wengert.

"The purpose was to create a resource for trails in general in Lebanon County," Wengert said.

But there are lots of other, shorter or different types of trails which we wanted to include in one place."
