Sand Spring Trail begins near campsite #108. Hikers can also access the trail near the sewage treatment plant below the park office. Parking is available on either side of the park office for this access point. Sand Spring Trail is wide and easy to follow. Part of the trail was built over the old railroad bed used to bring coal into the villages of Hickory Run and Saylorsville back in the mid to late 1800's. Many artifacts from this era including a wooden water tower, waterlines, railroad ties and even a few clumps of coal and ash can be seen along the trail. Mountain laurel and rhododendron shadow large portions of the path. Many natural springs seep along the trail which ends at the intersection of Hickory Run Trail.
Directions: From White Haven, PA, Take Interstate 80 to Exit 41. Drive east on PA 534 for 6 miles to reach the park. After passing the park office, take your first right which is past several dams. Trail begins near campsite #108.
