Sand Siding, one of the stops along the former Lebanon & Tremont Railroad Company, is now situated in the 3,520-acre Swatara State Park along the Swatara Rail Trail. Just a 5-minute walk from the Sand Siding Trailhead and Parking area, the Sand Siding Trail crosses the Swatara Creek with 4 connected bridges giving you a near tree-top view of the resident birds and vernal ponds.
What Locals Love About It.
“We have done this trail several times in the past year, and it just keeps getting better! We start on the Bear Hole trail and do the hills first, then connect with the Swatara for a beautiful flat ride. Saw 2 six point bucks right on the trail last weekend..still in velvet–they were beautiful. I never get tired of looking at the “Swatty” –Swatara creek for non- locals–. The new bridge is beautiful and allows those who want to shorten the ride an easy way to do so.” -rbrown via traillink.com
