Conewago Creek


It was on December 28, 2011 when they WooFDriver took the WooFPAK for a mushing tour of the Lebanon Valley Rail Trail in Pennsylvania. The original railroad was built in the 1880’s to carry vacationers to the summer resort community of Mount Gretna. It also carried Pennsylvania National Guard to their training camp near Mount Gretna. Freight service continued on the main line until 1972 when Hurricane Agnes washed out sections of the track.

This trail follows the Conewago Creek from its beginnings, as it passes through the Conewago Lake and beyond. The creek is 80.2 miles long and flows into the Susquehanna River. It is a popular fishing destination and also a destination for canoeing and kayaking when the water is high enough despite the many dams along ride.
