Gravel Trail runs through a second growth forest on the south side of the lake.

This trail runs through second growth forest from the campground to the area of the boat rental at the eastern end of the Conewago Day Use Area. This wide trail follows an old woods road and has a gravel surface. A loop can be made by using part of Lakeside Trail making a nice trail for hiking, jogging, cross-country skiing and bicycling. Concrete supports from an old toboggan run can be seen along this trail.

Directions: From Harrisburg, PA, Take Interstate 83 to the Lewisberry Exit 15. Travel southwest on SR 177 approximately 7 - 8 miles to the state park. Continue on SR 177 turning left on SR 74. Travel a short distance and turn left on East Camp Area Road. Turn left again to enter the campground. Follow this road, traveling past the amphitheater and past the playground. Gravel Trail begins just beyond that point next to the shower house.
