NCR Trail – Rest Stop


NCR Trail between Railroad and Glen Rock, PA

This beautiful view is a place I frequently pass or frequent stop at while walking the NCR Trail. I often see people taking a lunch break here.

I like this part of the trail because it is almost all hill between New Freedom, Pa(2.5) and Glen Rock, Pa(6.25). Rain water does not puddle and there is little to no mud.

Elevation at this point is about 677 feet.

This is an August 2012 image. You can see some leaves have already started to fall.

Update Note March 9, 2018. The trail at this location is on a slope. The view looks at the trail in a downward direction. Elevation shift is about 57 feet per mile down to Glen Rock (about the 6 mile marker) and the same uphill to about the 1.75 mile marker at New Freedom. These measurements are based on multiple walks and electronic APRS recordings.

On the NCR Trail at about the PA 4.25 mile marker there is a rest stop with three covered picnic tables. This view is from August 22, 2012. In Pennsylvania, the NCR Trail is also known as the Heritage Rail Trail Park.
