5 Hikes To Do This Fall

Ready to think about finding your perfect home in Lancaster? If you are curious about homes that are currently on the market, our website is a great spot to start your search!

It’s officially Fall, y’all!  There are so many great walking trails and hikes in our area.  Between cooler weather and leaves beginning to turn, Fall is the best time of year to check these out!

  1. Pinnacle Scenic Overlook
PC: Trip Advisor

This trail is home to arguable one of the best views in Lancaster County. A 2.75 moderate-to-difficult trail leads to a scenic overview of all the farmland and rolling hills in our area. If hiking isn’t your thing (which is okay too!), you can drive straight to the scenic overlook to see that stunning view.

2. Conestoga Greenway Trail

PC: Lancaster County.com

This trail is located closer to downtown Lanc and is good for all skill levels. It runs 2.6 miles in length and features a beautiful river and lots of overhead shade from the tree canopies.

3. Turkey Hill Overlook Trail

PC: Susquehanna Greenway Partnership

Another hike offering stunning views of the Susquehanna! You can make this hike a loop when you pair it with the Enola Low Grade Trail which is a flat rail trail down along the river. It is equally as gorgeous, as these views of the river totally make the hike worth it. It’s also a great place to spot local birds.

4. Conewago Recreation Trail

This trail is perfect for families, as it is as long or as short as you want it to be. You’ll pass bikers, other walkers, and even horses if you’re lucky! If you want to make an afternoon of it, once you arrive in Mt Gretna, you can leave this trail and head over to…(see #5 below)…

5. Governor Dick

A classic trail in our area! Get your fix of nature and history as you walk the Gov. Dick trail in Mt Gretna. What is heavily forested today once was stripped of trees (200 years ago). During the height of Cornwall’s Iron Furnace production, this area was barren due to the need of charcoal furnaces for iron production. Today, its’ beautiful dense woodlands offer the ideal hiking trail. And if you’re up for it, climb to the top of the observation tower, which is about 1.5 miles from the trail head. We usually walk there and back for the perfect hike duration!

An Afternoon at the Polo Fields!

If you’re looking for a relaxing, fun activity to do on a Sunday afternoon this Fall, look no further than a polo match at Forney Fields in Rothsville, PA – minutes from downtown Lititz.  

The Lancaster Polo League has polo matches every Sunday from June through mid-October. Check out their website for more information on their home match schedule.

The gates open at 1 pm and matches begin at 2:30pm. Children under 12 are free! Anyone above 12 is $5. Remember – this is weather permitting! Check the website for weather updates the day of.

Each match has a theme or benefits a special organization. For example, September 5th is accepting donations for our local SPCA. Later in the month, there will be a food truck offered! We know that October is breast cancer awareness month, and the first week of October is benefiting this important cause!

Here’s what you can expect:

Drive through the gates and park anywhere under the trees on the perimeter of the field. Grab some friends, blankets and chairs to sit on. Set up your tailgate and unpack your delicious spread to enjoy before and during this classic game.

Halfway through the game, you will be invited to “divot stomp”, which is an age-old polo tradition! This is when you stomp on the divots in the field, which helps preserve the field and enhances safety for the players (and horses). This is an activity that thrilled my kids when they were little! According to their website, even the Queen of England stomps divots when she attends a match!

Cherry Crest Adventure Farm Boasts the #1 Corn Maze in the USA

From the Amazing Corn Maize (according to USA Today, Cherry Crest has the #1 corn maze in the country!) to the hay chute, straw bale tower, and feeding farm animals, this is the perfect combination of fun, family, and farms! So make plans to spend the day outside soaking up sunshine while experiencing all the fun Cherry Crest has to offer!

Check out ‘Sproutsville’ inside Cherry Crest Adventure Farm

Cherry Crest Adventure Farm is open three seasons of the year, and each one offers its own unique attractions. It’s a great place to pick your own pumpkins in the Fall and your own flower bouquet (in the sunflower & zinnia fields!) in the Summer. Oh and did we mention – popcorn! That’s right, you can pick your own popcorn in the Fall. You can pick ears right from the corn stalks, bring it home and pop it from the ear. What a cool Lancaster experience

Live music? Say no more!!! Every Saturday from 3pm-6pm they offer live music to their visitors. This goes on till October 23rd.

So much fun to experience at Cherry Crest Adventure Farm, just outside of Strasburg, Pennsylvania

If you need a break from the farm activities, they also have a handful of stores for shopping or meandering. From local cheese and pickles, to apparel, gemstones, and homemade fudge…they really have it all available to you at your fingertips.

One review said it best: “It doesn’t matter if you are 2 or 102, you can have fun at Cherry Crest Adventure Farm” and we couldn’t agree more. Visit their website and find a date to take your family to join the fun.
