Escape to the great outdoors during your trip to Lancaster County, which boasts a whole host of ways to enjoy our landscape and relish a breath of fresh air! Bike or hike one of our many trails, and explore our scenic back roads, which have been voted one of the best places to "get lost." Our seemingly endless miles of rolling Amish farmlands and 29 covered bridges will serve as your pathway to simpler times.
You're sure to enjoy opportunities for birding and admiring scenic beauty at one of our Lancaster County Pennsylvania parks and preserves. Waterfowl and wildlife sanctuaries abound, along with several thousand acres of thickly wooded Pennylvania state gameland.
