This trail begins near the campground entrance where it intersects Lakeside Trail, then meanders through old overgrown pasture, then climbs into a maturing oak and hickory forest along the top of Straight Hill. The trail surface is dirt and can be rocky and there are some wet areas near the campground entrance. Stay on the trail to avoid prickly ash.
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. The trail begins just before the contact station on the east side of the road.
